Friday, December 20

Hungry Angelina’s Opening Night

Make your reservation for the opening weekend (or pray for an open seat at the bar) of chef Matthew Kenney’s latest restaurant. The open space is chic yet more casual than Plant Food & Wine. Get hungry for burgers and bao!

Order Your Christmas Tamales

Multiple Locations

No time (or skills) to make Christmas dinner? Check out these local vendors to order your tamales today—really, today, because the deadlines for orders are fast approaching. If you’re headed down south for the holidays, check out the catering options at The Plot in Encinitas.

Sign up to sing, or just enjoy the vegan food. Head to Hot and Cool Cafe between 7pm-10pm to put your name on the list and enjoy catering from Baba’s Vegan Cafe.
