This past Saturday was magical as everyone came together to support the launch of the San Diego Council on Literacy’s Eat Drink Read Book. With the seascape oasis of Triton Garden Gallery as the backdrop, guests enjoyed superlative blues by the Fred Heath Blues Band, amazing food from Ciccotti’s Trattoria, Q’ero Restaurant and Wrench & Rodent; open bar with libations from Hiatus Cellars, La Jolla Brewing Company, Venom Vodka Moscow Mules and Argentinian wines from the Winebow Group.

No worries if you missed out on the fun! Join us for the San Diego Eat Drink book campaign launch party this Thursday, August 6th from 6pm-9pm at Quad Ale House downtown: 868 5th Avenue, San Diego. Enjoy free smalls and best of all, $1 out of every drink sold supports the SDCOL campaign!

For out-of-towners, check out the campaign and all the fabulous awards local companies have generously donated in support of the project here:

About Jolee Pink

I am a California-based writer, designer, artist, super foodie and avid traveler. I view travel as a superlative learning experience and have visited nearly 50 countries. As the author of Living Coastal: Inspirations for Entertaining, Decorating and Cooking California Style, I brought together artists and chefs to capture the spirit of San Diego influenced by the Pacific Ocean. The Wabisabi Green lifestyle blog focuses on art, design, food and travel. My colorful ceramic sculpture has received national recognition and is on permanent display at Rady Children’s Hospital. I also design and market a boutique eco-friendly textile line featuring bold modern motifs based on nature, world travels and the southern California coastal lifestyle.
