Hear our stomachs grumbling? That means it's almost time once again for Decadence, the Weekly's favorite smorgasbord of samples in every sense of the word. Savory morsels, sweet treats, spirits and sounds are all on tap at this annual event taking place August 15 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. at the Hotel Irvine in their new, spacious out door event venue.
Over 50 restaurants, libation pourers and artisanal vendors will come together for Orange County's biggest foodie soiree in celebration of OC Weekly's annual Eat+Drink issue! A variety of purveyors will be featured, from local celebrity chefs and upscale eateries, to mom-and-pop favorites and food trendsetters. We'll also have a full lineup of live bands to provide the soundtrack to this epic pig-out sesh.
Expect small plates, bite-size samples and mini pours from Craft House, Brio, SeaLegs Wine Bar, Native Son Alehouse, Lou's Brews & BBQ, Beach Barrel, Einstok Beer, Stella Artois, Blue Moon, Modelo, Strongbow, Ludlows Cocktails & MANY more to come!
