After sold out shows in January and February at Tom Bergin’s Tavern, we are heading to the Westside and partnering with the popular South Santa Monica Restaurant and Bar for a festive night of fun food stories on Monday, March 18, 2013!


Featured foodies/personalities sharing their stories include:


Chef Richard Petty – Cookbook Author of “Beyond Soul Food” and Radio Host of LA Talk Live “Let’s Do Lunch”

Michael Lyle – Emmy Award Winning Sound and Music Artist

Stephen Domingue – Owner of the popular Ragin Cajun food truck featured in The Food Network show, The Great Food Truck Race

Chef Jamal Gillespie - South’s Executive Chef

Lisa Annitti – Actress who inspired the show with her now famous “Coconut Pie and a Bottle of Red Wine” story

Peggy Sweeney-McDonald – President of Superstar Events-LA and Creator of Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde S

Emcee will be Adam Milstein, owner of South Santa Monica and The Garage Restaurant in Culver City. He is featured in the Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde book with his story, “A Bit of South in Santa Monica.”


Humorous and heartfelt, these personal food stories all have the common thread of food – our culture and relationships, personal life stories, restaurant experiences, past love affairs, and more. “We’ve all experienced the highs and lows of life, which mostly revolve around our food experiences,” says creator/producer Peggy Sweeney-McDonald, a former actress and veteran event producer (Superstar Events-LA) and 15-year resident of Los Angeles, CA. “Everyone has their own “Café Du Monde” —the place where they know what they are ordering, they know it is delicious, and they know they are with good friends and family and for that hour, life is really wonderful!”  


6:00PM doors open; 7:15PM show - Tickets $25 and include show, dessert, Coffee, tax & gratuity.

A Cash Bar & Full Menu is available for purchase.

South is located at 3001 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90403
