For Your Own Sake

Enjoy some sake


Even though a new, fancy restaurant or bar opens on Wash. Ave. every day of the week (at least it seems that way), you would be remiss to forget about a longtime favorite on the rue: Rue 13 (1313 Washington Avenue; 314-588-7070). This downtown mainstay has survived not only road construction, but also the death of its neighbor, Velvet (and nearly every other place around it). So pay a visit to your old friend tonight to celebrate the bar's tenacity and general awesomeness with the Super $ake Happy Fun Time Extravaganza! This every-Wednesday club night promises '80s jams (the music from that decade, not the long, loud shorts), sake specials (natch) and "total madness." Happy hour runs from 5 to 9 p.m. this eve, the sake gets poured from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. — and what happiness happens from 9 to 10 p.m. is anyone's guess.
