There are celebrations every which way you look this week. Special dinners, happy hours and tasty pizza are definitely in your future, so prepare to party! And if you need a guest to join you at Tanaka Farms, we don't mind clearing our schedule.
Shuck Celebrates 4th Anniversary! – Costa Mesa
Pssst! There's an ALL DAY happy hour going on today at The OC Mix. Stop by Shuck Oyster Bar for good eats and wine pairing specials (be sure to wish them a Happy Anniversary!). Operating hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. And if you don't fancy oysters or the rest of the menu, go shuck yourself.
Jinny's Pizzeria & Dos Chinos Welcome The Travel Channel – Santa Ana
Got lunch plans this Saturday? Our friends at 4th Street Market are having a very special visit from The Travel Channel over the weekend, and they want you there! Jinny's is also having a Customer Appreciation Day— 20% off the entire menu, all freaking day. And Dos Chinos? Their amazing lobster elote is gonna be discounted down to $22.75 (normally $27.75) from now through Tuesday. Use that extra fiver to grab a slice for later.
Blackbird Vineyards Wine Dinner at Chianina Steakhouse – Long Beach
For something a little different, trek over to Long Beach next Wednesday for a quartet of tastes featuring the Napa Valley vineyard. Think branzino, duck and Chianina beef rib (plus gelato!) to get you salivating. And if you prefer to sit at the bar, they'll offer it there as well. Call ahead to make sure there's space. Dinner with wine pairings is $120 per person; $45 if you just feel like wine.
Partida Tequila Dinner at Bayside – Newport Beach
Check out the special dinner Bayside is serving next Thursday—Yes, we're jumping ahead! For $48 (plus tax and gratuity), think rib-eye steaks and pork belly tacos with your Partida tastes. Reservations are recommended for this four-course tequila pairing, so give them a call to secure your 6:30 p.m. spot.
Coming Soon: Farm to Fork MaxLove Project Evening at Tanaka Farms – Irvine

Help support their childhood cancer thrivership programs by donating or participating in this October 15 event, featuring Chef Azmin Ghahreman of Sapphire Culinary Group.
