KOREATOWN— In response to Budweiser's craft beer-bashing Super Bowl commercial, Beer Belly is bringing back its "Craft for Crap" event. This Saturday from 12 - 4 p.m., bring in a bottle of Budweiser and Beer Belly will trade you for a craft beer for $.01. Seems like one-cent libations are all the rage.
PASADENA— Fancy car lovers, rejoice! Rolls-Royce Pasadena is partnering up with The Langham to host an extravagant Chinese Lantern Festival.

DOWNTOWN— The Big Easy is swinging into Preux & Proper as it celebrates Mardi Gras on Tuesday, February 17 in a big way. Think a live brass band, Mardi Gras beads and masks galore, and themed eats like smoked shrimp beignets, gumbo, and king's cake.
