Celebrate A Mexican Favorite During La Sandia's Chile Relleno Festival

La Sandia

395 Santa Monica Place, 305 N, Santa Monica, CA

11:30am to 10:00pm

With dozens of restaurants around the globe, celebrity Chef Richard Sandoval is the father of modern Mexican cuisine. His clever takes on familiar classics have delighted palates from California to Dubai. This month, Sandoval’s La Sandia Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar at Santa Monica Place is highlighting a chile-lover’s delight with its annual Chile Relleno Festival, which runs through September 16th, 2014.

The Chile Relleno Festival also includes an Instagram contest:  Post your shot with @LaSandiaRSR and #rellenofestLS for a chance to win dinner for two, including drinks, shared appetizer, entrees and dessert.

Pairing with your favorite relleno dish are two special cocktails: the Pomegranate Margarita, made with tequila, lime and pomegranate seeds and fresh pomegranate purée, and the Coconut Mojito, a creative twist on the Cuban classic with Malibu Red (a combo of rum and tequila), mint and citrus, served in a coconut-and-ancho-chile-powder-rimmed glass.  

The Chile Relleno Festival is just one of four seasonal festivals at La Sandia celebrating classic dishes. While you may have missed the Guacamole Festival earlier this summer, the fall promises plenty of culinary intrigue as the Mole Festival comes in October, 2014.

Whether you work up an appetite by hitting the surf or shopping at Santa Monica Place, definitely make plans to stop by La Sandia for some excellent modern Mexican food and a clever twist on chile rellenos. Stop by soon as there are only a few weeks left!

ANDREA PORTES reads from ANATOMY OF A MISFIT

Skylight Books

1818 N. Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

7:30pm

From bestselling adult novelist Andrea Portes comes her Young Adult debut: Anatomy of a Misfit (Harper Teen), an emotionally resonant story that Publishers Weekly raves is “instantly endearing” with a “highly memorable heroine” and voice.  

Anika is the third most popular girl in her high school--despite feeling she doesn’t fit in with the popular crowd in her small Nebraskan town. To maintain her social status, Anika does whatever Becky Vilhauser (first most popular girl in school) tells her to do. But when loner Logan McDonough returns from summer vacation hotter, and more mysterious than ever, Anika has a hard time staying away--even when Becky forbids her to date him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.
