What to Know
- Saturday, June 22
- Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena
- $55 general admission, $120 VIP
The very first day of a season, as in the first day that's fully in that season, has an auspicious air to it.
But what to do with this unusual and noteworthy gift, a gift that feels even giftier when it is the first full day of summertime?
Being outdoors, among friends and friendly people, seems like step one. And step two is obvious: Good eats, that sate the tummy and overall outlook, can add to the fine feeling, as can good drinks, too.
What to do, where to go and what to see
Eat Drink Vegan covers all of those bite-filled, beverage-great bases.
It is, indeed, on the first full day of the relax-iest season — think June 22, the day after the solstice — and it has plates aplenty, and pours, too, that all have one thing in common: Yep, they're vegan.
The name says that, so no spoiler alert is needed, but here is what's needed, if you like to sip tasty libations in the sunshine: "Unlimited pours of 250+ beverages" is one of the draws of the day.
And those pours are pretty darn gamut-y, with kombucha, craft brews, and interesting sodas all making the scene.
As for vittle-ing up in a vivacious way? So many vendors will be there for you, including Monty's Good Burger, Donut Friend, Kogi, Mama's Tamales, Tacos 1986, and Vegatinos.
General admission? That's $55, plus service fees, while VIP entry is $120, plus service fees.
Your general entry nets you those unlimited pours in a four-ounce glass, while VIP'll go for the eight-ouncer, plus a few other perks. Food? That's additional.
Peruse all, daydream about all, and plan to rose, er, rise to the occasion, at Brookside at the Rose Bowl, on a Saturday that's 100% completely summer, start to finish.
