Get to Know the Gourmet in Grocery Outlet with Sam the Cooking Guy | Thursday, September 20th

September 13, 2012

Join national culinary personality Sam the Cooking Guy as he creates a culinary tasting tour of the surprising frugal flavors of San Diego’s brand new East Village Grocery Outlet on Thursday, September 20th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.  For $5, you get to meet the charming Sam Zien and sample his food.  You'll also want to stick around after and explore the extreme value of Grocery Outlet, which we've been intending to get back to since our Sam The Cooking Guy experience.
The event’s $5 admission includes tasty bites prepared by Sam himself and pours of a variety of delicious wines inside the Grocery Outlet Wine Grotto, for those 21 years of age and older. 100% of the ticket proceeds from the event will benefit the San Diego Rescue Mission, a non-profit homeless shelter and recovery center serving thousands of homeless, hungry, and poor men, women, and children in San Diego, and the East Village Association, a non-profit organization that manages the East Village Business Improvement District, the city's largest downtown neighborhood.

Based in Berkeley, California, Grocery Outlet offers extreme bargains on brand name merchandise, with prices often up to 50% less than conventional retailers. The largest “extreme-value” grocer in the U.S., Grocery Outlet has over 167 locations in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon & Washington. Grocery Outlet carries refrigerated and frozen foods, fresh produce, organic foods, dry groceries, beer and wine, health and beauty care, fresh vitamins, household products, toys and gifts, and even some clothes.  A third-generation family-led company founded in 1946, Grocery Outlet’s mission has always been to provide customers a fun place to find extreme values on name brands they trust. Most stores are independently owned and operated by locally-based families, like the one owned in East Village which is owned by the charming Kim and Steve Smith.
