The giveaway is the first syllable, referencing (in all caps) Melt Bar & Grilled, the gourmet-sandwich chain concocted by chef Matt Fish which has taken off into a statewide chain. Recognizing that the first Melt opened in Lakewood, the city holds a summer block party, set around the restaurant’s flagship site.
The 2018 Lakewood Summer Meltdown includes a 5K footrace (and one-miler kiddie fun run presented by the Lakewood Family YMCA), a beer garden and a fine spread of food vendors from the restaurant-heavy community, a bicycle raffle and a concert by alt-rock band Front Porch Lights.
Admission is free. Now watch, Matt Fish will go to L.A, to cook for the Lakers. Go on, backstab away; we’re used to it.
