On Wednesday night The Monster participated in his first Dishcrawl (www.dishcrawl.com), an event patterned much like a pubcrawl swapping out alcohol for food at four local restaurants. In this case the Dishcrawl was a Santa Monica/Venice affair (The Monster’s hood) and hearing that all proceeds would go to worthwhile charitable causes The Monster was eager to participate. He’s surely glad he did.
A group of forty-five eager Dishcrawlers met up at Areal on Main Street and the fun and organized mayhem began. The Monster grabbed a drink at the bar and then met some of his fellow food enthusiasts. You had everything from college students to retirees, locals to Long Beachers, all excited to see where the night would take us. Because all you know going in is where and when to meet, not the evening’s full itinerary.
