Jun 3 (Sun) FOG Lunch to Monterey: The Castroville Artichoke Food and Wine Festival

Event Date: 
Sunday, June 3, 2018 - 12:00pm

It's that time again - time for our monthly social lunch flight. We pick a great destination with a restaurant on the field or nearby, and meet up there for a relaxing lunch. We can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

This month we head up the coast to Monterey Airport (MRY) for lunch at the Castroville Artichoke Food and Wine Festival. It's a perfect opportunity for logging a cross country flight, or for stopping at airports along the way to practice approaches or performance take-offs and landings.

The Artichoke Festival is a commemoration of all things artichoke. The event has artichoke cooking demos, tours of artichoke farms, artichoke-themed art and souvenirs (and a contest to make art out of actual artichokes!), artichokes (and other vegetables) for sale at the farmers' market, a wine exposition, and of course artichokes prepared in every way imaginable.

Tickets can be purchased at www.artichokefestival.org/tickets . This event is 1.5 miles from the airport, pilots may choose to walk or arrange their own transportation to the event.

Bring along friends and family members to this great event, and show them what fun you have with your favorite hobby. Students and CFIs – FOG lunches make a great cross country destination!

We are encouraging everyone to take along a student pilot, to share the fun. Pilots - please list any open seats in your plane. Students - please sign up, then contact those with open seats to ride along.
