The best events this week
Tres by José Andrés Oscar Viewing Party
Leave it to swanky Beverly Hills staple Tres by José Andrés to roll out the red carpet for the 89th Annual Academy Awards. On February 26th (aka L.A.'s unofficial holiday, Oscar Sunday), head to the upscale, Spanish-style restaurant for a taste of awards season, complete with a red carpet arrival and photo op, specialty cocktails and bites, a welcome glass of Cava and truffle popcorn, and a raffle ticket to win a stay at the SLS Beverly Hills. Toast this year's nominees with signature dishes like the Patatas Bravas, chicken and béchamel fritters and homemade pappardelle pasta with parmesan foam.
Wine-n-Pie at The Blending Lab
Is there a sweeter combination than wine and pie? We think not. Apparently, The Blending Lab doesn't think so either—they've teamed up with pie connoisseurs The Pie Hole to offer a three-course wine and pie pairing. Discover the complementary notes between a variety of blends and salted caramel pecan pie, earl grey tea pie and Mexican chocolate pie, which you'll be able to taste at the new(ish) Blending Lab near The Grove.
Tater Tots & Beer Festival
Tater tots and beer—is there anything more you need in life? This comfort food festival returns for another year of slinging creative tots and craft beer at the La Brea tar pits. Choose from eight different tot dishes and over 40 beer selections.
LA IPA Fest
IPAs are a divisive beer—you either love or hate the hoppy pale ale—but if you're a fan, mark March 4th and 5th down on your calendar. That's when the annual Los Angeles IPA Festival is returning to Mohawk Bend, a fête that celebrates the best India Pale Ales from across California. Starting at 9:30am on Saturday morning, attendees will be able to stop by the Echo Park spot to sample over 60 craft beers from breweries like Arts District Brewing Company, King Harbor, Mumford Brewing and more. For $5 per 10oz. pour, you can drink a couple here, a couple there, then vote for your favorite—both the People's Choice and Judge's choice winners will be crowned at 4pm. On Sunday, continue the beer-filled festivities with flights for $13.50.
Time Out Los Angeles presents Wingfest
For those who dream about wings—not the flying variety, the chicken variety covered in BBQ sauce—Time Out Los Angeles' upcoming Wingfest might be the best event you'll attend in March. Held at Mack Sennett Studios, we've gathered some of the best wing connoisseurs in L.A. to share their chicken wings with you. Taste wings from Baby Blues BBQ, Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken, The Walrus and the Hedgehog, Simmzy's, L.A. Wing Co. and more for a chance to crown the ultimate wing champion. Tickets can be found here, where you'll be able to choose from three different sessions.
All-Star Chef Classic
Do you hear that? It's the sound of a thousand LA foodies letting out one collective squeal. The All-Star Chef Classic (think the culinary world's Superbowl equivalent) is taking over Downtown's L.A. LIVE for the third year, bringing together acclaimed chefs from around the world for four days of demonstrations, engaging dining experiences, tastings, showcases and chef access. The event lineup hasn't been announced yet, but stay tuned for updates.
