Who will earn the title of Lord of the Wings? Visit the Karl Strauss tasting room, at 5985 Santa Fe St., from 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14. and join “celebrity” judges in naming the best wings from area restaurants that will be competing for the Lord of the Wings crown.

This event is a fundraiser for the Discover Pacific Beach Clean and Safe Program. All proceeds benefit the program, which hires homeless individuals to clean and maintain the streets and sidewalks in the business district of Pacific Beach, provides outreach to other homeless individuals, and hires safety ambassadors to patrol the business district to address aggressive and criminal behavior.

The $30 ticket includes chicken wing samples from all participating restaurants (PB Shore Club, Tavern, Tap Room, Dude’s Grill To Go, PB Alehouse, and more) and two Karl Strauss craft beers. Tickets will be $40 at the door. Additional beers will be available for purchase.

The Clean and Safe Program is in its pilot year and Discover Pacific Beach is attempting to raise funds to continue helping the community and business district. The program uses a three-prong approach that includes cleaning, security, and homeless outreach. The program not only addresses traditional cleaning and security program, but provides the added tools needed to make an effective change to Pacific Beach’s homeless/transient population, safety and cleanliness of the entire community.

With a cleaner environment and a security presence, Discover Pacific Beach hopes to change the behavior of everyone, residents, visitors and businesses. Discover Pacific Beach will continue to assess what works and what doesn’t over the course of a one-year pilot program in order to effectively start this change.

If you cannot make it to the event and would like to donate to the Clean and Safe Program, you may through PayPal and send a donation to the email sara.pacificbeach@gmail.com. Donators would have to log into their PayPal account and submit sara.pacificbeach@gmail.com as the receiver.
