DOWNTOWN: Has it really been a year already? Elevate Lounge celebrates its first birthday this Wednesday with an open vodka bar from 9-10pm. Also, 50% off sake drinks next door at Takami Sushi, which opened a year ago, too. [LAT]

EAGLE ROCK: This Saturday night, photographer Gregg Segal, who shoots the "performers" in front of the Chinese Theater, is having a show at Colorado Wine Company. $6-15 sips and cheeses by Auntie Em’s Marketplace. Let's hope Scary Elmo doesn't pop in for a glass of Vouvray. [COC]

WESTWOOD: Who better than street-foraging Jonathan Gold to moderate a discussion on what defines Los Angeles cuisine? Also on Zocalo's September 10 panel at the Hammer Museum: Michael Cimarusti, Providence; Octavio Becerra, Palate Food & Wine, and Evan Kleinman, Angeli Caffe and Good Food. Free, but reserve in advance. [Eater Inbox]
