L.A. Beer Week

L.A. Beer Week

It's baaaack. L.A Beer Week returns with their annual kickoff party, taking place at Los Angeles Center Studios with live music, educational panels, a VIP tent pouring specialty beers, games, a photobooth, and more food and beer selections. Over 80 breweries will be in attendance, and you can expect to see a lot of your local favorites. And you can totally steal your glass because, uh, it comes with your admission ticket. Beer-guzzling Angelenos will have plenty of chances to chug throughout the week at events such as beer brunches, special releases and more. Keep an eye out for an exhaustive list of all beer week events on the official website.

The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon

Often, the phrase “Back by popular demand” amounts to nothing more than hype, but in the case of The Book of Mormon, it fits like magic underwear. Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez’s nine-Tony-winning cultural phenomenon resurrects at the Pantages. Parker and Stone, of course, are best known for South Park and Lopez is a fairly newly minted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner. Mormon follows a group of idealistic missionaries as their beliefs run into the harsh realities of life for the African villagers they cheerfully hoped to convert. The tuneful megahit is not for kids, but if you happen to bring one, it’s earmuffs time when they start singing “Hasa Diga Eebowai.” And before that. And after that. Mormon is hilarious and offensive, and hilariously offensive, and the New York Times called it “the best musical of this century.”
