We're not exactly known for planning our lives well in advance, but when it's important (or especially awesome), we tend to get our act together.
Celebrate Mexican Constitution Day at La Cuevita, 1933 Group's Highland Park hideaway. There will be DJs all night plus $5 margaritas, free tacos and $6 Mexican Flag Shooters. Did we mention free tacos?
The Chinese New Year, also known as The Spring Festival, begins Feb. 10th. I celebrate this holiday every year because of my affinity for Chinese culture and passion for Chinese food.
The pure chaos of the last month almost makes us want to go into hibernation until spring. Then again, there's way too much going on to hide at home all weekend.
As Californians, we're very picky about our pizza. And we have a lot of options. I personally have about a dozen choices between my place and Joe's, but if I want real New York-style pizza, why settle?
While we're busy trying to convince ourselves that we don't want to go to Cochella - because really, who are the Stone Roses? - we'll be gorging on lobsters, meeting up with a Swedish dance duo, watching miniature films and learning how to make perfect cocktails.
Now that all of the holiday parties are officially over, it's time for the Spare Room at the Roosevelt Hotel to get back to its tournament series. In addition to the bowling league, there are a series tournies in the gaming lounge.
Between now and February 1, more than 250 participating restaurants will offer specials which display the creativity that is taking place in kitchens all over the city.
Sunday morning, check out the German sausage pop-up Knackig at Mignon downtown. They had us at bottomless mimosas and breakfast brats.
Aww, a miniature week! Isn't it cute? After three glorious days off, an inauguration to remember, and maybe a little loafing around, we're psyched to dive into the week ahead (even if we have to go back to work, BLURGH).
Someone had to pick up the slack after Campanile closed and there was no longer grilled cheese Thursdays. Taste on Melrose has stepped up to the challenge, now serving a special grilled cheese menu every Tuesday.
We've got a big weekend ahead of us -- literally. Three whole days to do whatever we want?! We almost didn't know where to start. Almost.
2012 inspired a new wave of healthy Los Angeles restaurants. A post office morphed into a social house, a blue cow was in a kitchen, and a "living food" academy came to life.
Don't worry, broke girls, we're feeling more well-adjusted to our non-holiday lifestyle now that we're suddenly halfway through January. What better way to celebrate our new sunny outlook, than to bundle up and take ourselves on the week-long joyride that we deserve?
In addition to the regular menu, starting tonight and every Monday, Cooks County offers three-course comfort food menus for only $25.
Fleming's is a wonderful surprise, with its elegant ambiance, style and sophistication. Personal attention and caring service make a visit here something which I will want to repeat often.
