Has anyone been to this event before?
Would they recommend it?

    I've never heard of this event. What and who will be there? There is a lot of good food in Alhambra, I am learning.

      Eh, for a $50 ticket they could do better. You could just go to drink I guess.

        I would go just for the atmosphere. The food at these things really become secondary.

            I lived in Alhambra for about 20 years and I never heard of this event. Where can I get more info?

                this event came out of the whole rebuilding of Alhambra Main St. Just a few years old. I hope in future years they add more non-Main St restaurants.
