Snack, Sip & Surf at The Pacific Edge Hotel
March 10 was sunny and warm, the perfect day for the Snack, Sip & Surf event at The Pacific Edge Hotel – part of the Laguna Beach a la Carte food and wine festival. Held in the newly redesigned surf cabanas and adjoining decks, the event featured a poke competition between Sundried Tomato Cafe, K’ya Bistro, House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer, Stadium Brewing Co. (winner) and Tommy Bahama Bar & Grill. Each cabana was home to a bartender whipping up cocktails as part of a cocktail competition showcasing Azunia Tequila, Tito’s Vodka, Bianchi, Sailor Jerry and Hendrick’s Gin (winner). As guests sipped and snacked, they watched a paddleboarding competition between Team Hobie, Team Riviera, Team Infinity (winner), Team SUPCO and Team Surfride. Proceeds from the afternoon went to the Surfrider Foundation in south Orange County. —M.M.
