    Tastemade Gallivant

    Tastemade, the LA-based food-centric video network, used to hold these free food events called Bite Clubs.  I attended a few and always had a great time, especially at their Mardi Gras-themed one earlier this year.  They hadn’t held one in a while, but then recently they announced that they were launching a new event series […]
