Here's a snapshot of what's going on in Birmingham business community this week:
Dan Cleary joins Chen Chow Celebrity Sushi Program
will be teaming up with Detroit Red Wing Dan Cleary as part of the restaurant's Celebrity Sushi Program.
The $14 Cleary crab roll will be Chen Chow's special sushi roll for February and will be available throughout the month. Proceeds will be donated to the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, which assists a wide variety of charitable activities and programs throughout Michigan and Metro Detroit. Past grant recipients include: the Salvation Army STRIVE Hockey Program, the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association One Goal Program and the in Birmingham.
Since November 2011, Chen Chow has partnered with a local, regional or national figure on a monthly basis to feature a signature sushi roll in support of their charity of choice.
"I've always been a huge fan of Chen Chow and it's not often enough that you see local businesses make community engagement such a priority, so when Tracy (Wilson, Chen Chow general manager) asked me to participate it was a no-brainer," Cleary said. "I've followed the program from the periphery and I think it's a great vehicle through which to give back in a fun way."
The Cleary crab roll features avocado and cucumber wrapped in sesame soy paper. It's topped with spicy crab salad, baked and served warm.
