SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 18, 2010, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is celebrating International Sushi Day, an informal holiday created to encourage sushi lovers around the world to eat more sushi. In honor of this day, anyone who "likes" RA Sushi on Facebook can print a special offer good for one complimentary Tootsy Maki, redeemable at one of RA Sushi's 25 locations nationwide.

The complimentary Tootsy Maki Facebook coupon must be printed and redeemed on June 18, International Sushi Day.

Tootsy Maki is one of RA Sushi's most popular rolls containing kani kama crab mix, shrimp and cucumber, rolled and topped with crunchy tempura bits and drizzled with a sweet eel sauce.

The Facebook coupon can be printed beginning at 12:01 a.m. on June 18 and is good for that day only (see coupon for official rules and details).

Sushi's presentation has evolved over the years, when it began as a means of preserving raw fish in Southeast Asia and eventually became a form of "fast food" sold from street vendors. Now a celebrated cuisine worldwide, sushi has become an art form, with each restaurant offering its own signature dishes of nigiri, sashimi, and maki. On International Sushi Day, sushi connoisseurs and sushi novices are encouraged to dine on their favorite RA Sushi dishes or explore the menu and try something new!

To make this holiday even more official, RA Sushi has declared June 18 as International Sushi Day in Chase's Calendar of Events, the most comprehensive and authoritative reference available on special events, worldwide holidays, civic observations, and more. International Sushi Day will appear in the 2011 edition of Chase's Calendar of Events.
