Casa Guadalajara Culinary Team

CREATIVE LITERACY EVENT--The 4th ever EAT, DRINK, READ wine, beer and appetizer event is set for Wed. May 22 between 5:30 and 8 pm at the NTC Promenade McMillin Center.  The very sociable event benefits The San Diego Council on Literacy.  More on the group at end of this blog.

This year’s theme will have participating kitchen staffers/chefs prepare small plates from recipes inspired by books.  Eh? Recipes from Dante’s Divine Comedy (filet of soul)?;  Dickensian (various holiday geese?);  Martian (cuisine) Chronicles?  Beowulf’s spicy dragon? Or tasty selections from the Chicago Manual of Style?  The possibilities are endless.  Got a recipe?

Forgive the digression.  They are not doing Martian cuisine. 

Go have fun.
It’s easy.  Buy a ticket.  Show up.  Eat, drink and be merry knowing you’ve made a nice donation to a worthy cause: civilization.

Admission cost is $65 per person, which includes wine, craft beer and a silent auction.  Big free parking lot nearby.

Ticket info: or 619-574-1641, X 105.

Why this event?
It’s a fundraiser for The San Diego Council on Literacy.  The website says: SDCL’s “network of affiliated programs provides people with the services they need to improve their quality of life through literacy. In 2012, 170,000+ residents of all ages received no-cost literacy services from the Council’s 26 affiliated literacy program partners.

“Our partner literacy programs provide one-on-one, small group, computer-assisted, and classroom literacy services for English speakers and non-English speakers, all at no cost to the public.  Services are provided to those who are English-speaking but who do not read at a high enough level to meet their needs.  Services are also provided to those who are learning English.  Services are also provided to those who want earn their high school diploma or G.E.D.  These programs operate from libraries, adult basic education centers, community colleges, school districts, homeless centers, churches, refugee programs, low-income housing complexes, and juvenile detention facilities.”
