Chef Justin West tells me that Handlebar Coffee Roasters at 2720 De La Vina Street is holding an event on June 6, 6-9 p.m. titled “Chef’s Night Out.” It will be an evening of unlimited food, wine, beer, and live music that benefits the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. Food stations will feature Grilled Sausages, Rabbit Terrine, Red Cabbage Gazpacho, Ravioli, Watermelon Salad, Prawn & Crab Siu Mai, Mushroom Pot Stickers, Chinese Steam Cakes, Almond Sable, and Flourlesss Chocolate Cake. Tickets are available on eventbrite.com (search for “chef’s night out”) for $65.
Chef’s Night Out is a benefit that was started by West’s late father, Mike West in Eugene Oregon; the hometown of both Justin and Aaron (from Handlebar). They decided to bring this cocktail-style event to Santa Barbara for the benefit of men’s & women’s recovery programs. Come enjoy small bites prepared by local chefs and support a great cause!
