On September 1, Huntington Beach is going nood—and so is Snoop Dogg. We can all thank the team at food-news website Foodbeast, because they’re throwing a massive all-day noodle and music festival right on the shore with a DJ set from the one and only D-O-double-G, a trip around the world in global noodle cuisine, drinking on the sand, and some general rest and relaxation in front of host restaurant SeaLegs at the Beach.
The food lineup promises some of the best noodles in Southern California—all available for additional purchase—which means you can feast your way through brown-butter lobster buccatini from Slapfish; lemongrass beef and curried prawn vermicelli from LSXO; and even bulgogi asada chow mein all the way from San Francisco’s ARIA.
The entertainment’s not limited to all the hilarious slurping happening everywhere you look: You’ll also find that DJ set from DJ Snoopadelic (yep, that’s Snoop himself); a performance by rapper E-40; a food-eating competition; and yacht rock band Yachty by Nature, who’ve been known to bust out a keytar from time to time. Slurp’s up, dudes.
