Taste of Venice to be held this Saturday 9/14
Information below from Taste of Venice:
For one afternoon, the chefs of Venice open up their doors for a unique tasting experience and a great cause.
Taste of Venice consists of three courses: The Opening Celebration, the Tasting Tour, and the Post Reception. Our guests will be divided into 25 tour groups, each led by a “Tastemaker,” a well-known member of the Los Angeles culinary community. The Opening Celebration will feature food, cocktails, a silent auction, and ample entertainment. The Tasting Tour will be an opportunity to taste exclusive samples from our favorite Abbot Kinney Boulevard restaurants. The Post Reception will include coffee, treats, and drinks for our guests.
All funds raised from ticket sales support our arts education programs. We hope you join us!
