Abbot Kinney First Fridays Canceled in May Due to Covid-19

Abbot Kinney First Fridays is the premiere food truck event that takes place on every First Friday of the month in Venice with an endless stream of food trucks. But wait! Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, it’s been cancelled for May after it was cancelled in April, due to legit Covid-19 health concerns.

The food options for now are food to go at restaurants and bars and also includes drinks, as in alcoholic beverages to go in some establishments in Los Angeles.  There was a banner outside the El Torito restaurant in Santa Monica with  something like, “Margaritas to Go” which sounded pretty tempting to us.  (It was a little early in the day for that…)

You might be wondering where are some good spots to go? There are so many restaurants in Venice, Santa Monica and Marina del rey alone it wouldn’t be fair only to list a few.   Abbot Kinney First Fridays wants to know- what restaurants have you ordered food from recently?
