Hungry girl looking for the next adventure.

Wanna have some fun this weekend?

Tour Belgium at Total Wine & More tonight at 6:30-8:30pm.  For only $15, you can enjoy Belgian beer styles such as Trappist and Abbey Ales at their stores in Tustin and Laguna Hills.  Seating is limited so call ahead!  (If you miss this, they are also doing a Belgian tasting Saturday from 3-5pm.)

Well who would have thought that Pi day would land on a Friday.  No seriously, it’s 3-14 and pizza joints are celebrating.  Blaze (at UTC) is selling their pizzas all day for just $3.14 and Pie-Not (in Costa Mesa) will be selling meat pies from 7-8PM.  If you haven’t been to Blaze I highly recommend it.  It’s a make your own thin crust pizza that cooks in about 3-4 minutes. It’s fun.  Haven’t checked out Pie-Not but I am a little bummed they cheaped out on this fun day!  I mean only one hour?! BOooo.

Yost Theater is celebrating the Rock Star Beer Festival this Saturday with live music from Breach The Summit, Ceasefire, DJ Topsider and more than 35 craft beers to taste.  It’s from 6-10PM and costs $50.  Sounds steep BUT it includes unlimited beer AND a rock show.

Try out a walking food tour in Laguna this Saturday.  The Food Tour in Laguna Beach “captures culinary delights mixed with an intricate cultural experience”during a 3-4 hour tour through “The Village” of Laguna Beach.  Since it’s going to be in the 80s, I would wear sunscreen.  There are even options to buy booze along the tour for those that are thirsty…(Buy your tickets in advance!)

Restaurant opening: The Dessert Lab opened on MacArthur near John Wayne airport.  The Dessert Lab specializes in, you guessed it, dessert.  Specifically though, they make cheesecakes–little, single-serving ones the shape of hockey pucks. But what you probably didn’t expect are the unusual flavors they come in.  I cannot wait to try the French Toast Bacon!  (Brick and Mortar of Vijay’s Catering)

    Now now, don’t hate on a place until you’ve been there – Pie-Not is delicious, and their pies are all under $7 regularly anyway. Plus it’s a pick-up rather than dine-in place, so even though it’s only an hour, plenty of people can take advantage of the deal (unlike a dine-in, where you can only seat so many in an hour). Also a Bundaberg ginger beer goes quite well with a pie…
