Remember how we told you earlier this month that OC native son Aron Habiger was starting up a new series of pop-up restaurants around OC, and that you have to check them out. Welp, Aron has one going TONIGHT at Anepalco's, and there's still a couple of tickets left.
Habiger has titled his series, "On the Lam," with the following mission statement:
A nomadic dining experience where the landscape of the Pacific Northwest serves as inspiration for our cuisine. We are intent on building relationships with like minded and forward thinking individuals that last beyond our communal dinner. The goal of our dinners is create that perfect moment where conversations start, friendships begin, and memories are made.
