There isn’t much these days you can do for under $20. DrinkEatTravel.com completely understands this dilemma and they planned a benefit for the L.A. firefighters that’s recession friendly. For $12, guests of A Fiery Fiesta — DrinkEatTravel.com’s Firefighter Benefit will enjoy tacos from Chipotle Mexican Grill, beer from Firestone Walker, snacks from Popchips and a chocolate tasting from The Chocolate Traveler . The Drink Eat Travel team also organized a raffle for the end of the evening where proceeds go to Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum. The raffle includes a suite at the Luxor Resort in Las Vegas, tickets to the Hollywood Improv, gift certificates to Boneyard Bistro and Hugo’s Restaurant, a stay at the Renaissance Hotel Hollywood, tickets to Landmark Theatres and more.
The idea for the event came after DrinkEatTravel.com visited the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum over the summer. The museum is a hidden little treasure around well-know Hollywood hotspots like the ArcLight Theatre and Amoeba Music. The museum was once a working fire station and it now houses old fire engines and fire apparatus, some dating back to the 1880s. The fire station was even used as a movie location for the Three Stooges and Buster Keaton.
Fire season is sometimes forgotten about but it’s currently off and running. Last month, fires scorched areas around Kern River County, California and over 15 acres were charred in Porter Ranch, California. Southern California has endured a record amount of rainfall this week but it’s expected to turn into warm weather with dry winds that could heighten the threats for brush fires. Firefighters and the fire departments need all the help they can get.
A Fiery Fiesta — DrinkEatTravel.com’s Firefighter Benefit is on Wednesday, October 27 in Hollywood at the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum. Tickets are $12 and you won’t go home hungry! Visit the Drink Eat Travel website for more info and Brown Paper Tickets to purchase tickets.
