A Look At San Gabriel Valley Restaurants by


Arcadia Red Cross Benefits from Taste of Arcadia

By Bill Coburn


The Arcadia chapter of American Red Cross had a very good night on Tuesday, receiving a donation of $1,000 from the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce and $500 from the Arcadia Lions Club.  The Chamber of Commerce donation will increase as final numbers come in from the event that raised the money, the 2007 Taste of Arcadia. 


Each year, the Chamber of Commerce selects a non-profit organization to be the beneficiary of the Taste event, and this year it selected the Arcadia Red Cross.  The Taste of Arcadia has been around for 32 years, but this year, Chamber members and event co-chairs Bob Kenz (owner of Robeks Juices) and Jerry Pavelec (owner of EZNet Business Solutions) elevated the event to a new level, said Chamber Exec. Director Beth Costanza.  An estimated 1,100 people turned out to enjoy food and beverages provided by more than 30 vendors, including local restaurants, as well as wineries and breweries.  Live entertainment was provided by the band “Cheap Sax.”


“I see this event as growing, and I see that it is a positive community event for our local restaurants.  It was our biggest and best, and we love being able to make a donation to a deserving non-profit, which this year is the Arcadia Red Cross,” said Costanza.  “The Chamber did a magnificent job in pulling together all the restaurants.  We’re very pleased with the donations from both the Chamber and the Lion’s Club, as they will be used in our community programs, including Meals on Wheels, disaster preparedness and CPR training.  Many of our programs are done with no charge, so donations like these are very important to us,” said Bob Dayo of the Arcadia Red Cross.


I tried many items from many vendors, but my favorites on this evening were the crab cakes and peel and eat shrimp from McGrath’s Fish House, the shepherd’s pie dished up by Brit’s Restaurant and Pub, the dumplings from Din Tai Fung Dumpling House, and the prime rib sandwich from Holiday Inn.  Matt Denny’s also served up some tasty pulled pork, and Dave and Buster’s ribs, which the young lady serving me told me she guaranteed were excellent, were in fact, excellent.  As to desserts, the blueberry cheesecake from the Derby was excellent, as were the raspberry sorbet with raspberry sauce, from Scoops; and the strawberry crepes from Valerie’s Crepes.  One of the most visited booths of the evening was Wood Ranch BBQ, which had a “Gift Wheel” for people to spin, where they could win free appetizers, desserts, t-shirts and more.  This booth was also one of my favorites, because I was lucky enough to win a $10 gift certificate!


The Arboretum was a lovely setting for this event, and the Chamber did a good job of making everything happen, including arranging for a shuttle bus to transport people from the Race Track’s Gate 7 when the Arboretum’s parking had gone to overflow.  Kudo’s to the Arcadia Chamber, and to all the restaurants that did such a great job.  And to Cheap Sax, who had the dance floor full to overflowing as the evening wore on.
