Old Town Grub Sprawl

Old Town Grub Sprawl

By San Diego Dining Dish

You've heard of a Pub Crawl, right? Buy a ticket, then do a walking tour of various bars and have a beer! Well, I just heard of something even better, a Grub Sprawl!!!! Sample delicious foods rather than beers (but there are beverages to be had, of course!) On Monday, July 9, 2012, from 6 to 10 p.m., San Diego’s foodies will come together to participate in a savory stroll through the historic neighborhood of Old Town. The Old Town Grub Sprawl welcomes participating restaurants such as El Agave, Harney Sushi, Miguel’s Cocina, The Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant, El Fandango and more.

Participation is fun and easy, attendees first visit one of two starting locations—Miguel’s Cocina and El Agave—to pick up complimentary wristbands (distribution begins at 5:45 p.m.). Donning these bright bracelets enables participants to enter any of the participating restaurants and order the evening’s special dish at only $5. Offering a wide array of delicious dishes, this edible excursion delivers a tempting trip around the gourmand’s globe. “Something For Everyone” is the mantra of the evening…encouraging friends to converse, laugh and enjoy while sharing dishes with each other and fellow Grub Sprawlers (always a lively bunch).

Participating restaurants (and some of the their offerings) are below:

1. Miguel’s Cocina - MOLLETES Grilled carne asada on telera bread with beans, shredded cheese, fresh avocado salsa, and cotija
