The best events this week
Street Food Fights
Get out your gloves: the battle for the best street tacos commences on Tuesday, August 2, at Border Grill Downtown, where Brazil will duke it out with Italy over who has the best street eats. Over the next five weeks, other countries will have their turn in the ring: Chile vs. USA on Aug 9, Thailand vs. Cuba on Aug 16, Mexico vs Lebanon on Aug 23, and the final championship round on Aug 30. Each week, diners will have the chance to pay $25 for an all you can eat feast (or $6 a la carte), sampling bites from each country and casting their vote on social media to decide the winner. Country-specific cocktails will be available for $7 as well (think: Chile's pisco punch versus Italy's traditional limoncello). Let's get ready to rumble!
Bites & Brews
There's no better pair than seasonal craft beer and good food. This Saturday, Golden Road Brewing is teaming with Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill for an afternoon of local beer, live music and food. For $35 enjoy a selection of Golden Road beers and small bites like beer braised carnitas tacos, grilled steak skewers and prime beef sliders courtesy of the Wolfgang Puck team. Check the site for the full menu.
Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival
You don’t need us to tell you how great Los Angeles’ food scene is. But if you’re in need of a friendly reminder, splurge on a ticket to the sixth annual Food & Wine Festival held in Downtown LA and at restaurants across the city. The festival will kick off on Thursday with the premiere of Amazon's Eat the World with Emeril Lagasse, as the chef hosts a night of international tastings from his celebrity colleagues: think José Andrés, Mario Batali, Danny Bowien, Marcus Samuelsson and more. Friday offers a number of lunches and dinners around LA, along with fan favorite Grand Avenue Night Market in the evening. On Saturday, Live on Grand—yet another massive tasting event infront of the Walt Disney Concert Hall—will take place. More events are in the works, but you can check out the full lineup and purchase tickets here.
