DTLA Is About to Have You Looking Right

Four reasons to visit ROW DTLA this weekend:

1) There's a big sample sale happening with brands like Buck Mason and Garrett Leight.
2) Smorgasburg is Sunday.
3) It has ribs.
4) And tacos.

WEST STOP

It's Got Drinking and Smoking in the Name, So...

Here's a massive West Coast-inspired group art show going down over a month at the typically crazy Think Tank Gallery. Go with friends for the LED mirror chamber, a Playboy-sponsored dive bar, live music, speed dating, escape rooms, live readings and art from 75 artists. Right. There's art, too.

A New Taco Rolls Into Town
FRIC SHOW

A New Taco Rolls Into Town

At MV Grab & Go, you'll now find a different kind of taco. It has a tortilla, sure. But that's melded with a crispy, cheesy Italian frico, topped with an egg, then stuffed with meat, chayote and cherry tomatoes. They wisely neglected to call it "Frico Loco."

Now available, $7.50, MV Grab & Go, 12226 Venice Blvd, Mar Vista, 424-228-4679
