Michael Juliano

We curate an L.A. weekend itinerary of the city’s best concerts, culture and cuisine, every week, just for you.


Munch on oysters, tamales and street food during Flavors: The Urban Chuck Wagon, an era-spanning dinner series at the Autry.

Rock out and raise awareness for social issues at Women Fuck Shit Up Fest, a women-empowering fest featuring local up-and-comers. The concert kicks off its first of two nights at the Smell and Five Star Bar.

Alternatively, catch a set from indie rock legends Superchunk as the beloved band plays the Teragram Ballroom.


Pedal your way through a 20 or 30-plus mile bike ride during the L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run. The Chinatown tradition returns on Sunday as well with a 5K and 10K; both days you’ll find a family-friendly festival at Chinatown Central Plaza, the start and end point of all races and rides.

Scope out more than 250 food and craft booths while lion dances, kung fu demonstrations and other performances play out across multiple stages during the Alhambra Lunar New Year Festival.

Mark the late Bob Baker’s 94th birthday with an afternoon of puppet shows, live music, comedy and more during Bob Baker Day. The celebration spills outside of the beloved Westlake puppet theater with a morning parade and an afternoon carnival.

Stop by Reformation on Melrose for the Milk Bar x Reformation Pop-Up. You can pick up a free gift from the upcoming bake shop with any clothing purchase—plus you can sample the new Crack Pie Latte.

Watch an intimate, body-inspired performance from L.A. Dance Project in its new home just south of the Arts District. The free performance is the fourth event in The Dialectic of the Stars series.


Take sewing workshops and view lectures during QuiltCon, a modern quilt show for design lovers at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Get up to speed on this year’s Academy Award nominees at AirTalk’s FilmWeek Oscar Preview. Watch movie clips and hear critics debate who’s likely to take home an Oscar as KPCC host Larry Mantle leads this live event at the Theatre at Ace Hotel.

Head to the Wallis for a performance of Jackie Unveiled, the world premiere solo play about former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Curl up with a bowl of one of the world’s most comforting dishes as the 15th Annual Cassoulet Night returns to Lucques, once again paying tribute to the traditional dish with roots in Southern French cooking.
