The History of BBQ at HSCV Meeting
At its next meeting on Monday, July 18 at 7 p.m., the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley will present the history of the barbecue.

Charles Perry, Los Angeles’ resident food historian, will talk about the history of this American tradition.
The meeting is held at the Center for Spiritual Living-La Crescenta, 4845 Dunsmore Ave. (at the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta avenues) in La Crescenta.
