Akasha Offers November Tastes

It’s never too early for Thanksgiving. That’s what I always say. No, not really – but seeing as from Sunday’s Great Chefs of LA event (post coming soon), there were plenty of autumn bites to be had despite the seventy-something temps in Southern California … in November. Fortunately, Akasha is previewing some Thanksgiving bites – indoors. For only $10, you’ll be able to sample tastes of Akasha’s Thanksgiving menu to get an idea of what you might like to order for the big day. In addition to the tastings, you’ll be treated to complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. They have two Saturdays lined up for your sampling pleasure:
