So I’ve been attending a few food festivals lately, and it turns out the fall is just as busy, if not busier, than the summer. Most of the events mentioned in my fall preview post have come and gone, and I got to attend many of them (see my recent blog posts for coverage). However, many more have cropped up, and, even though September is almost over, there’s still some great event left in the month!
Sunday, September 20, 2015: Later today, Angeleno Magazine will be holding it’s 13th annual Live & Dine LA. Celebrate 16 years of the magazine’s publication with over 40 restaurants including Aestus, Bestia, Chaya, Faith & Flower, Knuckle & Claw, Le Comptoir, Spago, The Bazaar by José Andrés, and more, at the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica. Event benefits Project Angel Food. Tickets still available!
Thursday, September 24, 2015: Food-centric video network Tastemade is launching a new event series called Gallivant, which replaces their free Bite Club events (review). Even though Gallivant is not free, take a look at the line up—the graphic below doesn’t even mention that Howlin’ Ray’s, Starry Kitchen, Corazon y Miel, Phorage (and more) will be there too—the $40 ticket price is totally worth it!
Friday, September 25, 2015: If fantastic seafood and handcrafted DeLeón tequila cocktails in an intimate yet hip setting are more to your liking, Ceviche Project (review) is having their next pop-up at Skybar in the Mondrian Hotel on the 25th. [Update: I originally stated this was on the 24th, which is incorrect. It is on Friday, September 25, 2015.]
Saturday, September 26, 2015: Before they go full-time with their gig at Button Mash, Starry Kitchen is thowing an AYCE Crab Fest to raise funds for the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. $75 (pre-sale) gets you as much Singaporean chili crab legs, buttermilk beer beignets, and garlic noodles you can eat!
As you can see, September still has quite a lot to offer! I’ll also recap some of the events coming up in October in a separate post by the end of the week. As a sneak peek for that, I’ll just mention that Pier del Sol, a fundraiser for Special Olympics Southern California, in its 19th year, will be taking place on Sunday, October 11th.
If you know of any events or festivals taking place in September that you think I’d be interested in, please comment below!
