Carnitas Snack Shack celebrates five meaty years


The original Carnitas Snack Shack, located in North Park, is celebrating five big years with carnivorous fans.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the meat-heads who started the Carnitas Snack Shack movement welcome all those who have supported the popular concept over the years. Head to the eatery from 6 to 8 p.m. for music, drinks and exclusive anniversary shirts. Of course there will be ample food in the form of an all-you-can-eat buffet, but you’ll need to donate an unwrapped toy or $5 to partake.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Edison Elementary.

In case you haven’t heard, the Carnitas Snack Shack in Del Mar is closing doors at the end of the year. To celebrate with a bang, they’re throwing a grand finale party on Friday, Dec. 30 with drink deals and #ShackSpecials. Don’t miss the $4 drafts and $4 wines served all day, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
