Pasadena’s restaurants invite everyone to come to Pasadena and enjoy a citywide cocktail party on August 15, 2012, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of America’s first celebrity chef and Pasadena’s own Julia Child. The Julia Child Pasadena Cocktail Party will take place in restaurants all over Pasadena, culminating in a simultaneous toast at 8:30pm.
On August 15th, many of Pasadena’s restaurants will host cocktail parties to commemorate Julia Child’s birth and her contribution to fine cuisine and culinary arts, as well as her birth and childhood in our Crown City of the Valley. Festivities will take place in restaurants throughout the city, with some even offering up specially created cocktails and dishes in tribute to Julia Child.
“We are inviting everyone: foodies, cocktail aficionados — anyone who appreciates fine food and drink — to come out to Pasadena restaurants on August 15th as we raise our glasses and toast the birth of America’s first celebrity chef, Julia Child,” said Pasadena Chamber CEO and President Paul Little. “In addition to bringing fine French cuisine to America and cooking to television, we know Julia Child appreciated a good glass of wine and a fine cocktail. We want everyone to join us in Pasadena as we raise a glass to toast the 100th anniversary of her birth.”
Restaurants and bars throughout Pasadena will be hosting grand cocktail party commemorating the birth of Julia Child on Wednesday, August 15, 2012.
