OC Weekly: Decadence 2015



Unrestrained, excessive self-indulgence in luxury and pleasure.



Sounds like a party to me... 

Orange County's favorite foodie fest returns with a vengeance from 7 - 10pm on Saturday, August 15th.

More than 50 local restaurants and liquor brands will be on hand in Irvine, making OC Weekly's Decadence 2015 the food and beverage trendsetting event of the year.


This year OC Weekly will be taking it outside. 

Hotel Irvine's beautiful lawn event space, The Backyard, will be transformed into an adult playground for the evening. What better way to spend a warm, SoCal summer night than to relax under the stars and taste the best of what OC has to offer? 


That cool new restaurant you've been meaning to try....    

A craft beer from a brewery around the corner that you haven't tasted yet...

That band you've heard about but haven't had the chance to check out... 

At Decadence 2015, a collection of the latest and greatest will be waiting, ready to become your new local favorite. 


Check out the long list of BITES and SIPS to try, as well as the lineup of MUSIC
