November 25, 2014 – We can hardly wait to show you the new winter issue of Edible Monterey Bay! To introduce it in holiday style we’re throwing three (yes, three!) winter issue launch parties in December. We want to make sure readers and friends from all parts of our coverage area can attend, so mark your calendars and plan to join us at one or all three of these very special events: Monday, December 15 at Assembly in Santa Cruz; Tuesday, December 16 at The Bakery Station in Salinas; and Thursday, December 18 at San Benito Bene in Hollister. Each party is admission free and will feature delicious complimentary nibbles, copies of the winter issue, drinks for sale along with a prize drawing for those who RSVP on our eventbrite pages before December 11.
On Monday, December 15 make plans to mingle with other EMB readers and staff at Assembly, 1108 Pacific Ave. in Santa Cruz from 5pm to 7pm. Assembly is the newest project from the folks behind the Penny Ice Creamery and Picnic Basket. Hostess Kendra Baker is offering complimentary small bites and mixing up a special champagne cocktail to help make the season sparkle. RSVP for SANTA CRUZ PARTY HERE.
On Tuesday, December 16 the rolling party moves to Salinas, where we will be warmly welcomed at The Bakery Station, 202 Monterey St. from 5pm to 7pm.
