We at the City Paper don’t like to toot our own horn, but we have to admit that we know how to throw a good party. And when the party’s to celebrate our yearly bar guide — well, it practically throws itself. Since Swig went Asian-themed this year, we’re celebrating at Wasabi, one of downtown’s coolest sushi spots. They’ll be offering specials including half-price sushi rolls, $5 Kirin, $10 appetizer and sake pairings, and $2 vodka and bourbon. This is also your big chance to meet the nominees of our Hottest Bartenders Contest. You’ll know who they are because they’ll be the hottest ones. And if they don’t get you blushing, Generation X certainly will with their adult-themed games and giveaways. You can finish off the evening by grooving to live music from Wire and Wood, and still be home in time for dinner. Just don’t forget to pick up your copy of Swig — you don’t want to be caught not knowing where to pick up Japanese drinking vinegars.
