Yo! Venice! is duly excited for tomorrow's festival of events in conjunction with the Whole Foods opening on Lincoln Boulvard. "Wine Tastings, Free BBQs, Chef demos, Mommy Mixers (which sounds like either a contraption or a genre of cocktail), 'Value Tours' (how to avoid going broke shopping there) and Community Support Days (shop on Sept. 10th - 5% of sales will get donated to the Venice Family Clinic .)" And the BBQ-ing and wine tasting keeps going through the weekend. Our suggestion—don't eat before you go. [Yo! Venice!]
