Hungry girl looking for the next adventure.

This weekend in Orange County

Okay guys, I know I have been MIA.  And I have a lot of places to tell you about, but ya know…billable hours?  Hopefully I can catch up this weekend.  But in the meantime you tell me how you like these top stories.

Apparently this weekend is BBQ weekend, and it is only fitting as it is the weekend before Labor Day, the end of summer, and a hot 85 degrees.  So grab a friend, starve yourself all morning and check out the fun below:

1.  Pig Out 3.0 will take place August 24 from 2-7 PM in Costa Mesa.  Eat all things pig including dishes from your favorite restaurants (and mine) such as A Restaurant, Little Sparrow, Fireside Tavern and more.  Other restaurants are sending their very best mixologists to help you all wash it down.  I promise you, you will smell like pig when you leave…Mind you, you have to pay $75 for that l’eau de toilette.

2.  This Saturday the Fullerton Arboretum is hosting its Brews, Blues and BBQ for an adult only crowd.  Enjoy some Blues music as you taste your way through California’s best breweries.  For $45 you receive 10 4 oz. tastings, a souvenir tasting glass and a potential DUI.  The BBQ is not included and is an additional cost, but at least you can choose what you want to eat?  Should be a gorgeous weekend for a concert.

3.  Long Beach is having its own BBQ Festival ALL WEEKEND LONG.  And for $80 you can become a VIP and have all you can eat access (I’m looking at you Wu).  There will be music and dancing, but really if you are eating all that food you probably just want a stretcher to take you from booth to booth.  I wonder how much that would cost….There is also a Photo Booth, but really no one wants to see a picture of you with BBQ sauce down your shirt…
