Chef Andrew Gruel is launching a recipe contest tied to next month’s opening of his latest Slapfish restaurant at 211 Broadway St.
Gruel is giving guests the opportunity to contribute to his menu by submitting recipes that meet Slapfish’s standards of sustainability and emphasize seasonal, local ingredients. Gruel will select three finalists and the public will determine the winner by a vote on social media.
The winner’s dish will stay on the menu for two months in Laguna and eat free.
Recipes may be submitted at Slapfish’s Facebook page.
Marking the Equinox
The public is invited to celebrate this year’s vernal equinox on Friday, March 21, for dinner and a movie in a collaboration with the Laguna Beach Film Society and downtown’s BC Space gallery, 235 Forest Ave.
The $25 per person event includes a 6:30 p.m. dinner and 7:15 p.m. showing of Robert Reich’s film “Inequality For All.”
“For those who saw our 2012 exhibition ‘Capital Crime$’, this film confirms our urgent need to create equity in our world,” said BC Space owner Mark Chamberlain.
Local Hotel Offers New Amenity
Tide water docent, Rachel Tejeda, will lead a tour of Laguna’s protected marine areas for guests of The Inn at Laguna. Hotel guests can photograph sea anemones, shore crabs and sea hare with an underwater camera provided by the inn.
