Regarding Her will celebrate Women’s History Month with its third annual 10 Days RE:Her Festival. The festival aims to generate support among women-owned food and beverage businesses from restaurants and bars, to artisan food makers and shop-owners. Events from the festival will raise funds for RE:Her’s member programs, like RE:Her Academy, member workshops, and programming for the new RE:Her Leaders now open to women-identifying and nonbinary leaders within food and beverage businesses in Los Angeles.
The festival kicks off on Wednesday, March 1, with Guerrilla and The Goat, a progressive walking tour and seven-course menu with a stop at the Sixth Street viaduct.
In Good Company and RE:Her runs through the end of March: Order meals delivered to your home made by an all-female chef/restaurateur line-up featuring Vivian Ku of Pine and Crane, Kim Prince of Hotville Chicken, Dina Samson of Rossoblu, and Kat Turner of Highly Likely. Orders can be placed online at www.eatigc.
