The Azuma Group — owner and operator of Azuma Sushi Rice Village, Azuma Sushi Downtown, Azuma on the Lake, Kata Robata and Soma Sushi — presents "Azumapalooza 2: Bigger. Badder. Deffer.," a celebration of Asian street food.

This year's event, inspired by '90s iconic rap group Run DMC, will have attendees tasting food from all five Azuma Group restaurants alongside beer by 8th Wonder Brewery, wine by Duchman Family Winery and cocktails featuring spirits by byejoe, Wild Turkey, X-Tropix, Flor de Cana and Campari.

In addition, DJ Sun will entertain the masses with a rap-along medley of songs from yesteryear along with special taiko drum performance from touring group Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko and Myagi-Ryu Nosho-Kai.

Topping it all off is the return of the World's Hottest Sushi Roll Eating Competition for prizes.
