eat great food and raise money for charity at the same time in Huntington Beach

Yes, it is time to satisfy those taste buds and help charity at the same time! (if links don't work, just do a cut and paste!)

Coming up early next month (Sunday, April 5) you can enjoy an all you can eat crabfest, hosted by the Huntington Beach Lions Club, and benefits the various charities the Lion's Club supports. The fest includes all you can eat crab, bread, salad and clam chowder. It is only $40 per person and worth every penny. I went last year (and will be there again this year), and it was delicious as well as very fun. There will also be a silent auction and entertainment! Tickets are presale only (deadline March 22) and the rsvp form can be found at: www.HBLionsCrabfest.com . The location this year is Old World German Restaurant, 7561 Center Ave., and the doors open at 4:30. Don't miss out on this one!

Also in April is the Taste of Huntington Beach - another one not to miss!! The date is Sunday, April 26, 12 noon to 4:00 pm. This event features Huntington Beach's finest cuisine prepared by restaurant chefs, and paired with premium wines and brews! This event benefits the Children's Wing of the Huntington Beach Library as well as Project Self Sufficiency. The location is the Sports Complex at 7111 Talbert (at Goldenwest). The cost is $52 per person, again very well worth it - I'll be there with all my friends! But tickets on line at:
