LA Beer Festival
Featuring over 200 beers, food trucks, live music and more, the LA Beer Festival hosted by Drink|Eat|Play is back for another year of sudsy revelry. Held at LA Center Studios, attendees will be able to enjoy beers from Boomtown Brewery, Absolution, Iron Triangle, Ohana Brewing Co., Golden Road, Bell's and plenty more. Tickets range from $45 to $80, and proceeds will go towards Noah’s B-ark, Inc, whose aim is to rescue dogs from shelters and provide them with permanent homes. Purchase your tickets here.
BBQ, Blues & Brews
Begin your workweek in Southern style while feasting on comfort food, sippin' on a cold one and listening to live blues at Baltaire's BBQ, Blues & Brews series every Monday night. Executive chef Travis Strickland presents a menu of finger-licking dishes like jalapeño cornbread with bourbon pecan butter, blue cheese fondue dip with housemade salt & vinegar chips, and the Southern burger with ramp aioli and smoked onion jam. Seating is first-come, first-serve and only available in the bar and lounge, so come early and plan on leaving with a Southern drawl.
626 Night Market
The midnight snacker's greatest fantasy is just a car ride away. One of America's largest Asian food markets spans the course of Santa Anita Park's front Paddock Gardens (285 W Huntington Dr). Come hungry and come caffeinated—this lively market, complete with over 150 Asian street food and booze peddlers, live music, artists, films, games, and beyond, won't put itself to bed until 1am on Friday and Saturday (and midnight on Sunda). The event has also expanded its way to Orange County.
Avital Koreatown Food Tour
This special, four-course dining experience will include two appetizers, one entrée and one dessert. The tour will include visits to four different restaurants and lots of culinary history in between. Tastings can include kimchi and chorizo-fried rice empanadas, mul naengmyeon, Oaxacan moles, braised short ribs, red bean steam buns and more.
Chinatown After Dark
Head to Chinatown the first Thursday of each month for a smorgasbord of food from Far East Plaza's vendors plus special guests. Alfresco dining and live music set the scene, while pay-as-you-go bites from Lao Tao, Unit 120, Chego, Scoops and more will keep you well-fed into the night.
