A fun challenge, a good cause, and a chance to win sushi and sake? What’s not to like? The ~PIED PIPER BAR & GRILL~ at the Palace Hotel is celebrating Earth Hour from 8:30pm-9:30pm on Saturday March 31st with a blind tasting of sashimi and wine where you’ll have a chance to win dining experiences at Kyo-ya’s sushi and sake bar.

They’ll be turning off the lights and blindfolding guests in teams of two: one team member will try to ID three types of sashimi by taste and smell, and their partner will try to ID three red wines. If you’re both right, you’ll win a $50 gift card to Kyo-ya. If only one of you gets it right, you’ll win a $25 gift card.

So, you gonna give it a shot? It’s $10 per challenge, and proceeds benefit the World Wildlife Fund, whose mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. To register for the Earth Hour tasting, call 415-546-4126 or email. Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery St. at Market.

Even if you can’t make it to the event, consider turning off the lights anyway for Earth Hour. More info here.
