Sushi Hai celebrates its fifth birthday tonight
Sushi Hai, at 3600 West 32nd Avenue, celebrates its fifth anniversary tonight starting at 7 p.m., with half-off on sushi and drinks.
The Scott Davis Project will be playing acoustic blues in the downstairs Hai Bar -- a space guarded by an off-duty cop this past weekend. It was an unusual sight in Highland, but perhaps an inevitable one given the October 4 fight that started in the 3,000 square foot club and spilled out onto the street. Inevitable, if the owners of Sushi Hai want to avoid a major battle with neighbors. Hai Bar is also now closing at 1 a.m. on weekends -- although that's not yet reflected on the web site. "Like the Highland neighborhood we call home, Sushi Hai is refined, with a funky bite to its elegance," the home page promises.
Make that funky fight.
Councilman Rick Garcia has formed a committee of local bar owners and neighbors concerned about the the businesses in their midst; that group will meet for the first time next week.
