Westfield Fashion Square (www.westfield.com/fashionsquare) in conjunction with The Museum of the San Fernando Valley (www.TheMuseumSFV.org) is offering a monthly speaker series called “Taste of History,” which coincides with the opening of Westfield’s new Dining Terrace. Each month, on the last Thursday from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., this free event will offer a speaker who will cover an interesting part of the history of the Valley.
Does anyone remember dining at The White Horse Inn, Mike’s Pizza, Farrell’s Ice Cream, Otto’s Pink Pig, Pup ‘N Taco, Zig’s, Alphy’s, A&W Drive-In, The Rafters, original Monty’s, Copper Penny or Chris’ & Pitt’s? What’s your favorite story at Bob’s Big Boy or Beep’s?
Join us as Tommy Gelinas of San Fernando Valley Relics (www.valleyrelics.net) will be dishing up some delectable stories about many of the funky, quirky and traditional restaurants of the San Fernando Valley over the last 50 years or so. Artifacts such as menus, matchbooks, ashtrays, postcards, a screen presentation and a Q&A period will be offered.
There will be some prizes raffled off! Attendees will have an opportunity to tell stories of their experiences of dining in the valley and be videotaped (if they choose).
