It may still be too hot in Los Angeles for lederhosen and itchy felt hats, but that's no reason we can't partake in a little Oktoberfest revelry. After all, we're pretty sure the former is a sweaty mess no matter how low temperatures dip.
Our restaurants have made an impact both here and across the country. They've created some of America's favorite dishes, like French dips and tuna tartare. These are the game-changers that forever changed where and how we dine out.
Simmer down and drown out the election year chatter with wine tastings, yard sales, DIY projects, and glitchy DJs -- you know, weekend stuff. Here's what we'll be up to over the next three days.
Hotel Casa del Mar, the landmark hotel on the sands of Santa Monica, hosted a "Market Fresh Cocktails" mixology event where new takes on old favorites, as well as genuine creations with top-shelf components highlighted the evening.
Today marks the halfway point to St. Patrick's Day, a.k.a Half-Way Day, and Tom Bergin's is celebrating in true Irish style.
It's that time of the year again: All our gloaty East Coast friends can't stop beaming about their damn foliage. And why, you might ask, could we care less? Because this weekend's got fun in spades -- and not an apple-picking adventure in sight.
If you're as tired as we are of seeing everyone you know at the same go-to restaurants and bars you always default to, we may have the perfect, broke-girl-friendly solution; a day out in Koreatown.
While this abbreviated workweek should have left us feeling rested and rejuvenated, we somehow feel just as exhausted as ever. Let's all hope that our seventh-inning energy kicks in, as this weekend's agenda is not one to be missed.
My very favorite charitable food event of the year is coming up on Saturday, Sept. 29, when L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade will be held on the lawn at the Culver Studios to raise fund for the that foundation.
This is my first food review so bare with me. I had to review this restaurant because hands down it is one of the best meals I've ever had.
It doesn't take a genius to imagine how we feel about the almost-here, right-around-the-corner 3-day vacation otherwise known as Labor Day weekend. Here's how we plan to make the most of what lies ahead (no yachts, jets, or passports required):
A huge spate of eager diners are trying to obtain a table at Nobu Malibu, the single hottest restaurant in the nation right now!
After weeks of extreme weather, the heat's finally giving us a much-needed break from its tyranny. To celebrate, we are going to run around the city all weekend. Heck, we might even bring a sweater!
Haven Burger opens today at Pasadena's Haven Gastropub and Brewery. This is the lunch-only burger menu that's available in the back of the restaurant -- it even has its own entrance (off the alley).
For a quick, delicious and relatively inexpensive fast-food pizza option, Umami Burger's 35-year old honcho, Adam Fleishman, and Chef Anthony Carron have reinvented the whee ... only this time the wheel is edible!
If not for the sandwich board out front with the daily specials, you might miss what is essentially a hole in a wall in downtown Santa Monica. But through that hole (it's actually a door), is one of the better burger-and-beer joints on the coast.
