A time-saving way to sample Eastside flavors

By Valentina Silva

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. First, the good news: you have something really fun to do on Sunday, May 15 during the first-ever Taste of the Eastside. The sad part is that I won’t be there because I’ll be on vacation.  I know, I know, but you must soldier on, my friends. Food awaits!

Taste of the Eastside is a community food event at Barnsdall Art Park in Los Feliz. It will feature some of your favorite local spots, including Eagle Rock Brewery, Silverlake Wine, Intelligentsia Coffee, Malo’s of SilverlakeAuntie Em’s, Forage, Cookbook, Elf,  and Hugo’s Tacos. KCRW’s Garth Trinidad will be spinning and local authors will be on hand signing books. Proceeds go to SEE-LA, which aims to increase community access to nutrition, support sustainable food choices and create jobs, Children’s Hospital of LA, Barnsdall Art Park, and Rose Scharlin Co-op Nursery.

Sounds like a great time! I’m sad to miss it.
