This weekend one of the greatest events of LA's summer is happening. The almost out of Willy Wonka type soda tasting at Galco's, better worded, but less to put in order while writing this, Galco’s Summer Soda Tasting 2. A man who might have stolen some of Willy Wonka's clothes Charles Phoenix will be on the scene making great soda mix-ups. He is only a taste of the other entertainment with music acts playing outside, but to me the main star is the sodas. Soda after soda you get to try and lament on. Is it too fizzy, fruity, not enough chocolate? Critiquing soda has never been so sweet!
“Galco’s Summer Soda Tasting 2” 5-8 p.m. Sunday, July 22, 2012. Galco’s Soda Pop Stop, 5702 York Boulevard, LA CA 90042. The famed soda pop store hosts the second soda tasting event that will feature author/humorist Charles Phoenix and his seven-layer soda pop cake; live music; a set by Mothers of Invention musicians Don and Bunk; comedy by Native American standup Dakota Black; and other soda-related fun. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Southwest Museum. $12 advance/$15 at event.
