If you haven't tried Comme Ca yet, there's still a few seats available for the beer pairing dinner Monday night (Nov. 5), in support of California Paddle 2007. The event was created as a fundraiser for California Paddle 2007 and the Coastal CODE initiative, and half the proceeds will also go to the Red Cross's wildfire relief fund. Extreme athlete Tom Jones finished paddling the entire 1,250-mile coastline of California on a 12-foot board today, to combat plastic pollution in the ocean. The Alaskan Brewing Company is sponsoring the dinner, and I am looking forward to trying their smoked porter. Tickets are $125 for David Myers' four-course menu paired with Alaskan beers; call 323-782-1104 for reservations.
Alaskan Brewing is donating a percentage from sales of its new Alaskan IPA in support of cleaner oceans.
