A Taste of Lot 579

Surfrider Foundation Benefit Packs the Hall

Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

Southern California surfers and foodies all converged on Lot 579 in Huntington Beach (Surf City USA) May 11th to sample the best beach eats and salute the nonprofit Surfrider Foundation, which is dedicated to protecting the world's oceans, waves and beaches.

Located in the trendy, new Pacific City center on Pacific Coast Highway, Lot 579 - named after lifeguard stations 5, 7 and 9 just across the street - was the perfect place for the Surfrider benefit. With the waves breaking nearby and a beautiful sunset over the HB Pier as a backdrop, you couldn't ask for a better spot than this beach-themed food hall.

Hosted by Locale magazine and staffed with Surfrider's Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter crew, the A Taste of Lot 579 benefit included tastes from a dozen Lot 579 restaurants, music, raffle prizes, and more. 

Surfrider chapter chair Tony Soriano was busy greeting everyone while members were selling raffle tickets and explaining what Surfrider is doing to safeguard the environment - from testing water quality to certifying Ocean Friendly Restaurants that practice sustainable food sourcing and handling methods.

SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel could see that everyone was having a great time.

Greg Goran and his son Finn said they were making it a boys night out. Alex and Norma Sellers and Joe Samoa couldn't wait to try a spaghetti-grilled cheese sandwich from Burnt Crumbs.
With over 750 people attending the event, it was a non-stop food fest - with everyone partying and conga-lining from one food stop to the next.
