Friday Quickies #62: Tacos, Beer, Crabs and... David Hasselhoff?

Summer's here, summer's here! And what better time to enjoy an ahi burger and a cold one at Malibu Seafood?

Still being busy and having fun planning for bloggerprom - but squeezing in some time for a little food- and drinkventure of my own. Here's some events over the weekend where you can catch me chowing away :)

On Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m., Cabo Taco Baja Grill in La Mirada is doing a summer beer dinner pairing craft summer ales alongside an all-you-can-eat gourmet taco bar, with world-inspired specialties such as the gorgonzola-steak taco drizzled with garlic butter and topped with onion strings, roasted chipotle duck taco with citrus slaw, and a fiery Jamaican Jerk chicken taco with mango salsa. Paired that with over 15 great artisanal brews (including Vitzen from Angel City Brewery, The Bruery's Trade Winds Tripel-one of my faves from Craft Beer Fest-, and Avante Garde from Lost Abbey) and you got yourself on heck of a Saturday night fiesta (heck, I'd even say do Dad's day one day early for this!) $35 person for all the tacos you care to eat plus eight drink tickets (additional tickets $2 each).

For those who don't want to dive to the LA/OC border, Rush Street in Culver City is having a fun sounding Baywatch Cocktail Party from 8 p.m. to 2 p.m., featuring half-priced summer cocktails ALL NIGHT (yes, on a Saturday) as well as beachy decor and games (limbo anyone?) and a David Hasselhoff Burger Eating Contest! Hilarity is sure to ensue at this event!

This Sunday, you'll find me chowing on delicious crustaceans at The Hungry Cat Fifth Annual CrabFest! While they've done away with the all-you-can-eat steamed crabs this year (only six per person, which is still plenty enough) -- the $60/person menu includes crab soup /w bacon fat cornbread, corn and haricot vert salad with pan-roasted soft shell crab and pancetta butter, crab roll and a stone fruit cobbler to finish. Of course their infamously tasty cocktails, along with specialty beers picked for the event, are available to order at the event too, along with their a la crate raw oyster, shrimp and clam menu. This event usually gets booked up pretty fast but totally worth giving a call to see if you can squeeze in last-minute.

Hi H.C.,

Ack! I forgot about the CrabFest again this year! (>_<) I look forward to your report so I can live vicariously through your pics. :)
