It is indeed food festival season. Instead of paying $20 for a loud, musky crowd and $6 of Budlight, you can donate some much needed funds to a fine cause and enjoy some of the finer restaurants in all of LA. While this particular festival doesn’t deploy a huge number of restaurants, it is highly supported by Central Coast wineries. Mingle with the selectable Malibu crowd and this could be the best charitable value yet. See complete details below:
