Public invited to come ‘Grill ‘Em’ and ‘Pin ‘Em All’
Pop-up at So-Cal-based Alhambra restaurant will feature enamel pins, beer, burgers and pizza fries
You don’t have to collect or make pins to understand their appeal.
That’s the case for Niki Grasso, who is bringing Pin ‘Em All, a pin pop-up, to the metal music-themed club house Grill ‘Em All in Alhambra tomorrow night.
“…I am not into the whole pin thing,” said Grasso, executive chef and operator of Grill ‘Em All. “My daughter and my partner are and some of my friends are, so that was kind of how it came about.”
Grasso is good friends with Kevin Knight of Geeky and Kinky Pins. The two were hanging out and having a beer when Grasso mentioned that she hosts events on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the burger and beer restaurant. It didn’t take long for Knight to convince his friend to bring pins to Grill ‘Em all—and soon four other local pin artists were on board to vend the event: Bummer Days, Coolectric, Jesse JFR and Otherworld.
The first Pin ‘Em All event will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday (8/30) in the outdoor space at Grill ‘Em All, 19 East Main Street in Alhambra.
Attendees can find ample parking in the Edwards Movie Theater lot next door.
There will be beer and Food specials throughout the night, including Rose City Pizza Fries and Hot Wings, which are typically only served at the restaurant Friday through Sunday.
“We’re a spot for humanity. I don’t know how else to say it other than we want every single person to come and enjoy food here,” Grasso said. “We are a metal-based burger joint, but that doesn’t mean that your grandma, your kids, your aunt, your uncle, your sister, your brother, your mom, your cousin, your little cousin, your old cousin, can come and enjoy the food and environment.”
