May 25, 2010 - Naked Sushi at Kenichi
     The folks at the downtown sushi palace Kenichi Austin are hosting a special party on Wednesday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., featuring their fish delicacies served on the body of live
woman.  No, really.
         Called "nyotaimori" - which is literally translates from Japanese as "female body presentation" - the "body sushi" presentation is the extremely rare practice of serving sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically naked.  No, really.
     Danielle McGarrh, the Assistant General Manager of Kenichi Austin, promises that their models will not be completely nude. Instead, two models will be displayed for the guests and decorated with sushi in the form of art.  The food will rest on bamboo leaves that will be places on various locations of the body, and guests will eat from the artistic display.
    The night will also include sake bomb stations, a Patron shot block, and local DJs.  Proceeds will benefit The Pasties Project.  For more information, call Kenichi at (512) 320-8883 or visit them at
