Stroll & Savor a Treat for Everyone
From Issue: Volume XXI - Number 16
By RJ Ross
The sun is out to play in Long Beach during the summertime; Belmont Shore’s Stroll and Savor is one of the favorite summer activities for locals. This is an opportunity to eat at five different restaurants in one night and only spend ten dollars. Stroll and savor is a treat for everyone!
Throw on some comfortable clothes, flip flops and maybe grab a jacket and roam 2nd Street with all its restaurants have to offer. This is a great way to sample what Belmont Shore has to offer and to try places you normally wouldn’t go to or think are too pricey. “My favorite part is not having to choose what kind of food I’m going to eat,” says Rozzie Smith, a California State University Long Beach Student.
Or maybe pull a chair up relax and listen to the music. There are fun bands playing at street corners, and it’s a great place to take your significant other or family.
“I love taking my girlfriend to this event. She’s not from Long Beach so this was a great way to introduce her to my friends, places I love to eat and we go to the beach right after,” said Chris Lounsbury, a local native of Long Beach.
There’s still a chance to go this year, August 14, 15 and September 18 and 19 are the next upcoming dates. Don’t forget to get your tickets.
Tickets are sold in La Strada, Olives Gourmet, Roe Restaurant, Salon Soma, Shore Business Center, Sweet Jill’s and We Olive for $10 (12 tickets). This is more than enough for one person. Most of the restaurants charge 2-3 tickets per food item with a large helping.
So come on down and enjoy what Long Beach has to offer. “It is a great chance to obviously get good food and listen to music, but we love seeing all our friends. Long Beach is a big city, but has a small town feel because of events like this and that’s why we keep coming back” says the Ross family.
