Reminder: Taste of The Nation is This Weekend

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Looking for a way to to up your culinary karma? This Sunday, June 10 from 1-4 p.m., Taste of the Nation LA will be going down, donating 100% of ticket sales to Los Angeles food banks in an attempt to end childhood hunger. Now, keep in mind that this year’s event is at a new location, the Lot in West Hollywood. Because this weekend is also Gay Pride, some some strategic driving is order. But you're an Angeleno; you can figure it out. (In case you can't, the TOTN folks have mapped it out for you.) And once you get to the event, it'll be well worth your while.

Over 40 of LA’s best restaurants, along with local wineries, mixologists, and craft breweries, are confirmed to participate, and there will be heaps of auction options to bid on, including a dinner at the California Science Center cooked by the Two Hot Tamales, and a girl-power themed meal prepared by local top female chefs Nyessha Arrington, Akasha Richmond, Nancy Silverton, and Suzanne Goin.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the Taste of the Nation LA site; pre-paid parking is also available for $25.
