As we head into the time of year that reminds us to
shop ’til we drop be thankful for all that we already have, The Haute Lunch Bag, Chiaroscuro Concepts and Jaxon Home are gathering together to help feed those who would otherwise go hungry. On Thursday, November 18, from 7 – 9pm, there will be trucks a’ servin’, and booze a’ flowin’ at an open bar, at Jaxon Home at the Helms Bakery Building, in Culver City. To participate, trucks have to make a donation to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Although the event is free to attend (and did you see where I said open bar?), all revelers are requested (as in, don’t be a punk – just do it) to bring canned food or monetary donations (seriously, these people have nothing and you just bought a new computer/cell phone/game console/car/pair of boobs. Sack up like Santa and give something).

What would you do for a Klondike bar? What if it was a deep-freaking-fried Klondike bar?
