Achieving a Better Bacon-Cheddar-Burger-to-Falafel Balance

Imagine an upbeat world of hand-painted, 30-foot ceilings concealing a cocktail mezzanine. A place where bacon-cheddar burgers and rock shrimp po' boys peacefully coexist with black eyed pea falafels and Portobello sandwiches. You've essentially just conjured up Westwood's Fellow restaurant. Neat trick.

Early Happy Hour, All Thanks to Soccer

So, soccer. If you watch it, you'll be pleased to know that all seven Pitfire Pizza locations will start opening early to show the World Cup. And if you don't, there will be breakfast pizzas and $5 drinks until noon either way. Super convenient if you happen to like both.

Donuts: Making Old Train Stations More Relevant Again

You have an entire donut festival awaiting you at Union Station this Saturday. You'll be there, sharing donuts, fritters and churros with a date while meeting the good donut-making people of Primo's, DK's Donuts and more. We want to be like you when we grow up.

80 Breweries Just Dying to Meet You
TOO LIVE BREW

80 Breweries Just Dying to Meet You

Make sure to hit the L.A. Brewer's Kickoff on Saturday. It's the commencement of Beer Week and a chance to try incredible new beers from a gathering of 80 coveted brewers, including local splendors like Angel City's tequila barrel-aged Pineapple Saison. Your civic pride is best expressed in beer.

Sunday
You, Dad and One Seriously Kickass Fried Wagyu Sandwich
DADDY SHACK

You, Dad and One Seriously Kickass Fried Wagyu Sandwich

It's simple. A Wagyu beef picnic. That's what you're getting your father this year. That'll go down at Tao on Sunday with Wagyu hot dogs, compressed watermelon and an A5 tenderloin katsu sandwich. And for the whole next year, that gentle beast known as dad shall proceed to nap.

June 17, 5-11pm, $60, Wagyu Beef Picnic at Tao, 6421 Selma Ave, Hollywood, 323-593-7888
