Fundraiser brings Merrill Shindler broadcast, food tasting to Claremont’s Hotel Casa 425

Merrill Shindler, KABC radio host, editor of the Los Angeles Zagat Survey and food critic for our trio of sister papers in the San Gabriel Valley (San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star-News and Whittier Daily News), will be bringing his “Taste Buds” show to Claremont next Saturday (November 10) and you’re invited to participate!

Sponsored by Discover Claremont, the special event will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. at Hotel Casa 425, 425 W. First St.

In addition to the live broadcast, participants will be able to try small plates from a variety of Claremont eateries (including Lounge 425 at Hotel Casa 425, Orchard at the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont, Packing House Wine Merchants, Tutti Mangia, and La Parolaccia) and sip wine samples.

Admission is $25 at the door, and proceeds will benefit Inland Valley Hope Partners, which provides food, shelter and supportive services for no- and low-income families.

Entry is limited to the first 100 guests, so reservations via email are recommended.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m., and the tastings last until 5 p.m. Guests can stay and enjoy drinks and small plates at the hotel’s Lounge 425.
