The Fullerton Museum Center has put together a special dining series of four cuisines to accompany its exhibit "Rites of Passage in America: Traditions of the Life Cycle." The series begins Wednesday with Chinese food and continues each Wednesday night through Aug. 3. The dinner series celebrates the traditional "feast" as a rite of passage, whether it is for a birth, harvest, holy day, death or wedding. Other featured cuisines are Indian, Greek and South American.
Dinners, served in the museum, are from 7 to 9 p.m.; the price is $22 for museum members and $24 for the public (includes tax and tip).
The "Rites of Passage" exhibit continues through Aug. 14.
