Now in its 31st year, the annual Foodfare 2013 event in Santa Monica combines the works of chefs and restaurants from all across Los Angeles with libations from some of the city's most popular vendors. From A.O.C. and Angelini Osteria to Drago Centro, Lucques and even Waterloo & City, the all day event features two sessions (one from 10:30am to 2pm, the other from 6:30pm to 9:30pm), as well as a VIP reception that offers early evening reception and a chance to talk with the owners and chefs behind the more than 100 available vendors. Beer will be provided by local legends such as Craftsman, Beachwood BBQ, Brouwerij West and El Segundo Brewing, all in the comfort of a beer garden designed and operated by The Beer Chicks themselves.
