Taste of the Nation Los Angeles (and Laguna Beach)
As usual, I’ll be doing a post later this month rounding up some of the food events taking place in June, but I thought I’d call special attention to an event taking place in early June, since I have a promo code that will save you some money, and the event is for a very important cause.
Taste of the Nation is a series of food events benefiting No Kid Hungry, a campaign started by Share Our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in the United States. This year, ToTN (as the cool kids call it) Los Angeles is taking place on Sunday, June 5th at Media Park in Culver City.
The food line-up is impressive and includes chefs such as Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill), Ray Garcia (Broken Spanish, BS Taqueria), Ted Hopson (The Bellwether), Josiah Citrin (Charcoal, Melisse), Eddie Ruiz (Corazon y Miel), Dakota Weiss (Estrella, Sweetfin Poke), Chris Oh (Hanjip, Seoul Sausage), Kris Morningstar (Terrine), Steve Samson (Sotto, Rossoblu), Bruce Kalman (Union, Knead), Susan Feniger (Mudhen Tavern, Blue Window), and … well, you get the idea!
So as mentioned in the captions of the above two Instagram posts, I have a code good for 10% off either GA or VIP tickets (but not the Kids admission). If you go to the ToTNLA page, click Buy Tickets, then the “Enter a Promotional Code” link, and use OFFALO10, you’ll save $11-$16 on your ticket!
And, if you’re free this weekend, Taste of the Nation Laguna Beach is taking place on Sunday, May 15th. In addition to chefs Garcia and Morningstar, who are doing both events, Laguna Beach will also feature other notable LA chefs like Ben Ford (Ford Filling Station) and Walter Manzke (Republique). Unfortunately, I don’t have a promo code for that event, but if you can afford to go to one or both events, you’ll be supporting an important cause and eating great food, a win-win!
