This month, for the fourth year in a row, lovers of seafood, the environment, live music, sustainability, and a straight-up good time are coming together for an off the hook celebration in honor of National Seafood Month. Taking place on the historic Santa Monica Pier, this event is one of the most fun food fests in LA. Showcasing the area’s finest restaurants and chefs, Off the Hook is more than just a reason to play by the Pacific; while you feast, drink, dance, socialize, and participate in activities like the oyster-shucking contest, you also are supporting a great cause: Heal the Bay. This foodie fundraiser not only satiates hunger; it also helps protect our beaches, oceans, and sea life by raising awareness and funds for the Surfrider’s Ocean Friendly Restaurants program, which helps identify eateries that serve sustainably sourced seafood and keeps culinary purveyors honest.
