A late-summer event making its name in Los Angeles returns this August for the third year. The Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival will take place in Los Angeles from August 22-25, 2013. Those staying in hotels close to Santa Monica Pier will be happy to hear that part of the event will take place in Santa Monica, in a very convenient location and a great spot in Santa Monica to check out. The Bungalow will host Tacos & Tequila, hosted by Patrón, on August 23, from 3pm-5pm. A group of well known chefs such as Ray Garcia, Josef Centeno, and Rick Bayless will create unique dishes and combine bold flavors and textures to make some of the best tacos around! Add some Patrón Tequila and you’ll be set to have a fabulous Friday afternoon happy hour!
The LA Food & Wine Festival has events running at all costs starting with the Founder’s Dinner on Wednesday, August 21, and ending with the Duff Goldman Cooking Demonstration on Sunday night. There are events of all scales during the long weekend, with appearances and demonstrations from people such as Giada De Laurentiis, Michael Chiarello, Morimoto, Fabio Viviani, Grant Achatz, Curtis Stone and more! The events are at some great Los Angeles locations as well, so it might be a good opportunity to check out one of those favorite LA restaurants you’ve always wanted to see.
The LA Food & Wine Festival is gaining success with every year it is put on. Last year’s event saw a 3,000 person increase from the year before, and one can only wonder what kind of success will come with this year’s event! Last year’s Summer at the Shore Celebration in Santa Monica drew in big crowds, as is likely with the Friday afternoon happy hour party at the Bungalow. Get your tickets for any LA Food & Wine Festival event on the event website and have a fabulous time!
