The final countdown has begun for OC Weekly's Decadence, presented by Aquafina! Exactly one month from today, we will descend upon Hilton Costa Mesa with all the extravagant eats and good times. We gave you an inkling a couple of weeks ago of what's to come. Now, we're allowed to share a bit more.
We realize some of you are more of the meat-and-potatoes variety—so this round we dig into some carnivorous crowd-pleasers. We're talking The Halal Guys, Mendocino Farms, Krave Asian Bistro, The Smoking Ribs and Irenia! Want more? Try unlimited tastes from Tavern + Bowl, Clay Oven, Saint Marc and Lou's Brews & BBQ. And for something sweet, try Gelato Paradiso or Bowl of Heaven.
A little birdie told us Hendrick's Gin and Reyka Vodka will be making an appearance for some drink sampling. Also coming down for the night are the likes of Angel City Brewery, Pacifico and Knee Deep Brewing Company. Any more scoop on who's gonna be there, and we may piss someone off (For the record, there's another
15 20 we're saving for next time.).
VIP entry still guarantees swag from Surfas Culinary District, plus an earlier check-in of 6 p.m. We suggest using the time to stop by our photo experience and grabbing a bottle of Aquafina before the 7 p.m. General Admission crowd follows suit.
