A periodic food event named Dishcrawl has begun touring the South Coast. At Dishcrawl’s events ticket-holders visit four restaurants in one night, sampling each restaurant’s specialties and meeting the chefs or owners. It’s like a pub crawl but with food and everything is within walking distance. Tickets are $45 and all food is included in the ticket price. Upcoming events include the Funk Zone Dishcrawl February 19th at 7:00 p.m. and Upper Downtown State Street Dishcrawl March 5th at 7:00 p.m. I am told they also have a big event coming up on Sunday, April 7th called a Neighborfood, where they spend the afternoon on a self-guided tour of 8 restaurants in downtown Santa Barbara. A portion of the proceeds for this event will be going to a local charity. For more information visit dishcrawl.com.
