The breakfast burritos you aren’t eating
Thrillist is lookin’ to stir some stuff up with this latest list of breakfast burritos that they feel are underrepresented in the world. Among the list: Mixto, Phanny’s in Redondo Beach, and VIP’s Cafe in Tarzana.
Somebody stop supperclub
The Hollywood night club spot has apparently be rockin' out in clear violation of the law, says LA Weekly. Following a probation period stemming from previous issues — overcrowding, illegal fireworks, booze being consumed where it shouldn't be, you name it — ownership plead no contest and were supposed to be on their best behavior. Well, apparently that ain't happening.
California’s water crisis
Our fine state is in a bad way water-wise, and in some cases it’s really beginning to show the strain on restaurants and purveyors. NPR has a pair of stories up now surrounding the drought: the first noting that Northern California’s Fort Bragg is forcing restaurants to conserve water by using disposable plates and cups. The other? How wineries, which are so important to California, are being forced to turn to drier and drier methods of not only farming, but packaging and manufacturing.
Good news for Guerrilla Taco fans
Wes Avila and crew is putting out a cookbook! Due in 2017, so the post says.
Big Bear's craft beer weekend
Want a final chance for a summer getaway? You should, because it’s going to be hot as hell this weekend. Consider Crafts & Cranks in Big Bear on Saturday, which combines craft beer (30 breweries, including Ballast Point, Ritual, Coachella Valley, etc.) with mountain biking, and adds live music and the open water. Tickets are $50.
Marvin does brunch
Beginning Saturday, October 17 Marvin on Beverly Boulevard will introduce brunch, to the tune of $18 fried chicken & waffles, $14 pancakes, and $10 bowls of mac & cheese. Weekends only, 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Bike and booze!
Well, kind of. California just clarified their stance on those mobile multi-pedaling bar crawl bicycles that are so popular in other cities, so hopefully (to some) they'll start to really catch on here now. No, you can't actually drink while pedaling, but they're a fun, if touristy, way to get from bar to bar.
Large Marge’s LA takeover
The Large Marge team is in Los Angeles, popping up inside Jon & Vinny’s on Saturday, October 17. They’ll also be at The Line Hotel and this weekend’s Artisanal LA, which makes for a nice little mini-tour for the whimsical chefs.
