From 1-4 on Saturday, October 24, some of my favorite restaurants will be kicking off a weeklong event. Snack on tasty treats from the likes of JCT Kitchen, Taqueria del Sol, Star Provisions and Abattoir at food tastings or enjoy an old-fashioned apple festival hosted by Seed Factory (what happens at old fashioned apple festivals? Is there bobbing for apples? I can’t think what else would happen at such an event. But I digress…)
Once you pick up a Westside Provisions District Passport at the event, you have until the close of business on Saturday, October 31 to collect stamps from each participating merchant in the area. Apparently there’s no purchase necessary, you just have to visit the business to get a stamp. Once your passport is full, you can drop it with any participating merchant for a chance to win prizes including the following:
- Two-hour private party for 20 with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar from Ormsby’s·
- Cheese & Charcuterie basket with a gift card to Star Provisions - $300 value
- "Sunday Supper" dinner for six, excluding alcohol and gratuity, at JCT Kitchen
- The Grand Prize winner will receive a free $2,500 WSPD shopping spree!
I’ll be strolling down memory lane at my grad school reunion (seriously, how is that 5 years ago already?!) in Los Angeles that weekend, so no WSPD prizes for me, but sounds like a fun Saturday activity. Come on, who doesn’t like bobbing for apples?!
