If you're a relatively early riser, then stop by Chick fil-A at the Market Place in Irvine or The District at Tustin Legacy. From 8:30-10:30am they will be holding a pajama party. Show up in your comfy duds and receive a free original or spicy chicken biscuit. Saturday only, as they are closed Sundays. This brekkie fan will be in a sky blue waffle knit robe and sweats.
Waking up later? Stop by Bloomingdales at Fashion Island. The Home Store (on the 3rd floor of The Atrium) has 4 cooking demos starting at 11am. Local chefs will be showing their swagger in the kitchen. Here's the line up.
- 11am - Chef Sam Tila from Royal Thai Cuisine
- noon - Chef Rich Mead from Sage Restaurant
- 1pm - Chef Steven Nyugen from Ten Asian Bistro
- 2pm - Chef Zov Karamardian from Zov's Bistro
Did Saturday pass you by? That's alright. There's still time to catch the tail end of the Irvine Korean American Day Festival. Held at the Irvine Civic Center, there will be artwork on display, performances to enjoy, and cuisine to lunch on. A 'how-to' seminar on making kimchi is featured. Plus, what festival wouldn't be complete without a visit from a food truck? Kogi BBQ is scheduled to be taking orders.
Enjoy the holiday weekend.
