Sumo Stew at Right Proper

  • Right Proper Brewing Company 920 Girard Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20017 United States (map)

Sumo Stew takes its show on the road and stops at Right Proper Brookland Production House in Washington, DC.  

Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell returned to Brooklyn, NY with aspirations of importing this ancient sport, and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen, a wonderfully multi-faceted cooking store and center for culinary education. The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. This, paired with a live stream from Japan of the bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, which brings hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

The $50 ticket grants each participant a bento box, bowl of chankonabe, a beer ticket, and two drink tickets to be used for a taste of sake, shochu or whisky – and round after round of sumo. Additional drinks will be available for purchase.
