Seems like there’s quite a lot going on this weekend – and Taste of Abbot Kinney doesn’t really make the selection any easier. This event is for those looking to experience the overall vibe of Venice, since Taste of Abbot Kinney has changed a bit from last year, its inaugural event. One of the differences is that Intelligentsia and Lemonade aren’t participating, but there are plenty other outposts of their product. What you can expect is a unique VeniceÂ experience on a Sunday afternoon tailored specifically to you.
The biggest difference this year, however, is there areÂ “tasting tickets”Â that you’ll exchange at each venue for food, drink or experience.Â The day, which benefits Inside Out Community Arts, will have options other than food available. Floyd’s will have a mobile haircutting booth, Nite Spa will provide mini massages and everyone is entered to win a 52″ Sony LCD TV, a night’s stay at The Standard Hollywood and more.
TheÂ brickÂ and mortar bites I’m most looking forward to have to be Tasting Kitchen,Â Lilly’s, Primitivo andÂ Jin Patisserie. Of course, there will be food trucks – because no L.A.Â food event is complete without them. The highlight will certainly be the Ludo Truck. Dogtown Dogs will be on hand to offer their specialty hotdogs.
So, what are you up to on Sunday?
