Dec. 31: Fresh Start in Sonoma

Whether he’s living in Tahoe or on the Hawaiian Islands, sushi chef Jacob Talbert has been making the best of raw fish for over two decades. The culinary power behind Rocket Sushi in Sonoma from 2013 to 2016, Talbert is currently a mobile operation, catering and crafting under the name Sushinoma. This New Year’s Eve, Talbert drops in on fellow Sonoma spot Starling Bar for a Sushinoma Pop-Up that pairs delicious fish with a bevy of cocktails and libations. After filling up on sushi, dance the year away with Sonoma Sound Syndicate until the ball drops on Sunday, Dec. 31, at Starling Bar, 19380 Hwy. 12, Sonoma.
