SANTA Monica Pub Crawl Returns Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022

This from my inbox:

The largest pub crawl on the West Coast and Santa Monica’s most cherished holiday fundraiser returns with the 14th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl, on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022 at 5 p.m. Featuring more than 25 of the city’s best bars and restaurants, three routes and thousands of crawlers, this famous charity crawl brings the community together to raise money for those in need through the Westside Food Bank. Attendees dress in their finest holiday garb and receive discounted food and drink specials at popular bars such as The Victorian, Red O, The Viceroy, Circle Bar, Santa Monica Whaler, Barney’s Beanery, Harvelle’s, Lanea, Ashland Hill, and Ye Olde King’s Head. Over the last 13 years, the SANTA Monica Pub Crawl has raised more than $160,000, enough money for half a million meals for the less fortunate over the holidays.

Tickets range from $20- $35 and are available at www.santamonicapubcrawl.com.

Here’s Your Upcoming Food Lineup At Terminal 2…

LAX has been undergoing some impressive changes.  The Tom Bradley International Terminal recently went from decrepid to stylish with a fairly good representation of the local food scene.  And now it’s Terminal 2’s turn.  Recently I had the opportunity to check out the terminal.  Most everything is covered with plastic and construction is fast and furious, but I did get the opportunity to take note of what will be arriving soon.  First of all, gone is the dusty old Wolfgang Puck’s Express, one of the very last of its kind.  Besides a Starbucks and a sandwich kiosk (Plane Box Food Co.), the only place open right now is The Counter’s assembly line concept Built Custom Burgers.  But at least three more restaurants are on their way: Barney’s Beanery, Sealegs Wine Bar, and Slapfish A Modern Seafood Shack.  So hopefully in the near future, flying out of Terminal 2 won’t feel like a prison sentence…

Update:  And while you’re at it, check out what’s coming to Terminal 6 as reported today by Eater…
