Time Out Los Angeles presents The Chili Bowl

Winter in LA is not the most brutal of seasons, but it’s enough to warrant a coat, thick socks and plenty of chili. Join Time Out Los Angeles on Saturday, February 27 for The Chili Bowl, our winter tasting event that pits city staples and newcomers against each other to see who slings the best bowls. Held at L.A. River Studios, the event will feature three sessions (11:30-1:30pm, 2-4pm and 4:30-6:30pm); tickets include chili tastings from each featured restaurant paired with complimentary beverages. With plenty of variations to choose from—vegetarian, Cincinnati-style, you name it—there’ll be something for every chili-loving Angeleno to enjoy.

Breakfast at Top Round

Calling all breakfast lovers: Top Round Roast Beef is now serving breakfast for those of you up before 11am. The early bird menu, which will only be offered from 6am (yikes) to 10:30am, includes a variety of sandwiches. Try the steak and egg, a take on a BLT or a whopping pile of fried egg, hash browns, your choice of meat and Round sauce sandwiched between an onion bun. Although you can try these anytime, set an early alarm for February 9th, and you'll be rewarded with a free breakfast sandwich. Get there between 8:30 and 10:30am and you'll be glad you didn't press the snooze button. Is there a better way to start your day?
