Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce Spring Mixer, April 26 at Ti Amo by il Barone

Mix it up with friends and colleagues. Get to know our small business owners. Maybe get a legal tip or two. That will all be happening on April 26 as the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce mixes it up at Ti Amo by il Barone.

That’s a two-fer!

Enjoy great company with a real local crowd while indulging in Ti Amo’s antipasti and small bites, along with wines and il Barone’s signature Facci Ri Veccia (Focaccia, crescenza, mozzarella, Parma prosciutto, truffle oil. As reviewed here in Stu News, “We are talking about an amazing dish here, folks…”).

Donatella and Chef Franco Barone, owners of Ti Amo by il Barone

Ti Amo by il Barone is headed by Chef Franco Barone, who is a pretty big deal in this town and beyond. His many honors include twice being recognized as Southern California’s Chef of the Year by the Southern California Restaurant Writers Association as well as the Orange County Business Journal. The award winning chef and his wife Donatella are excited to welcome their guests to their Italian bungalow, located at 31727 Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach. They are serving up savory authentic Italian cuisine, perfectly paired wines, and sweet treats.

The Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce delivers another classy and fun opportunity for attendees to mix and mingle with friends, and connect with new business colleagues and community leaders. 

The Chamber Mixer is from 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 26. Attendees will receive a complimentary welcome beverage and two drink tickets. Antipasti, small bites and the Facci Ri Veccia will be served. There will be opportunity drawings to win special prizes and surprises.
