If you can’t afford to travel to faraway places this summer, you can take your taste buds on an exotic journey without leaving town. Amuse the whole family at a special soda tasting next Saturday (June 6) at The Corner Store. For $5 per person, adults and kids can sample some of the otherworldly sodas in The Corner Store’s vast collection. We don’t know exactly what they’ll be pouring, but the repertoire includes the original Jolt, Japanese apple soda, spicy Australian ginger beer, Dr. Brown’s Cel Ray celery soda and many other offbeat flavors.
The event is a fundraiser for a new children’s exhibit at the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. Tastings are at 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. at 1118 W 37th St. in coastal San Pedro. See the flyer to RSVP.
