Your chance to taste the culinary delights of Old Pasadena’s restaurants arrives this Tuesday, September 17, during “A Taste of Old Pasadena,” the event presented by the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation (PFAR).
A $30 ticket will let you sample the foods of over 35 restaurants, all located within walking distance. You will receive a wristband and a map to guide you, which you can follow at your own pace between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. To make sure you miss none, the participating venues will also display signs and balloons by their doors.
This event benefits everyone involved. It will introduce you to the offerings of eateries like Ixtapa, Temptations, Wokcano, Mezbaan, and BarCelona, which in turn will welcome your patronage (see an up- to-date list of participating restaurants below). On the other hand, 100% of your ticket money will be later transformed into high school scholarships and other grants that the PFAR Foundation will allocate in December.
Last year, 22 charities received about $80,000 from the PFAR Foundation, the result of several events that the outfit organized throughout the year. “A Taste of Old Pasadena” is the most public of such events, and about 500 people are expected to join it this year.
No drinks are included in the $30 ticket, but you will certainly be able to purchase a drink at any of the participating bars and restaurants to enjoy with your food samples.
Tickets to “A Taste of Old Pasadena” can be purchased at the PFAR offices (1070 E. Green Street, #100) or by calling (626) 795-2455. They are also available online at http://tinyurl.com/qh7ae95 (you may have to create an account).
