With Halloween right around the corner, why not start preparing yourself for what may transpire? Whether you will indulge on sweets, booze, or other like-minded individuals on such a holiday, the lucky visitors to L.A. Foodie‘s Treatoberfest could partake in a preview of all sorts of adult Halloween celebrations rolled into one. This past Saturday night, the L.A.

All throughout the night, attendees could go trick-or-treating by visiting all of the tables and selecting any treat they desired. General admission cost $12, and included unlimited food & dessert samples from all the vendors while supplies lasted. As an added bonus, L.A.

Second, this year’s event utilized the new private space adjacent to the brewery, as opposed to last year’s event in the open tasting room. Most importantly, admission did not include beers this time – last year, admission included three beer tasters. Personally, I noticed fewer dessert vendors than last year… or at least fewer vendors with food we could take home in our provided to-go boxes. Last year, I took home more than could fit in the box. This year, we really could only take home goodies from one of the vendors, as all the other treats likely would not make the ride home due to spilling or melting. This year’s vendors included some from last year, but otherwise mixed it up to include:

 

 

When L.A. Foodie throws an event, they do it right. Although they have not held an event since April, know that they all constantly search for the best of Los Angeles, whether they record podcasts, scout out new restaurants or bars, or put random food in strangers’ mouths. They currently do not have plans for another event, but when they do, they will blast it out to all of their followers. Make sure you like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter to ensure you will know firsthand when they will hold another event.
