Kevin Spacey doesn’t have time for you

Here’s a fun one: Kevin Spacey apparently found some time between, you know, being Kevin Spacey to heckle a few behind-the-scenes crew members of a recent Downtown commercial shoot. The whole thing went down in front of the classy-looking Starbucks at the corner of 6th and Grand, with Spacey giving everyone double-takes and flashing a smile before driving on. It was all recorded on video too, of course.

100 free pizza slices

4th Street Market newcomer Jinny’s Pizzeria is giving away 100 free pizza slices on March 1. The Santa Ana-based 4th Street Market recently underwent a strong shift with newcomers taking over for some defunct tenants at the food hall. That includes Jinny’s, which hopes to make a big early splash by doling out slices of their New York-style pies to the first 100 guests in line.

Head to beer camp

Tickets are now on sale for Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across America, a road-trip of sorts that celebrates all things craft beer. The Southwest leg of the tour lands in Los Angeles on June 25, where $50 general admission tickets get drinkers access to apparently hundreds of beers from breweries both local and far, including Alosta in Covina, AleSmith in San Diego, Absolution in Torrance, and Brouwerij West in San Pedro.

All you can eat chicken at A-Frame

Now running every Sunday, A-Frame in Culver City is doing an all-you-can-eat chicken fiesta. Chef Roy Choi Instagrammed a shot of the menu in question, which includes the restaurant’s popular beer can chicken, and their Korean fried wings.

Here comes more Bowl of Heaven

Healthy-eating chain Bowl of Heaven is known for their acai bowls, smoothies, and juices, which makes Southern California a prime target for expansion. With existing locations in Nevada, Utah, Wisconsin, and several other areas of California, the brand plans to drop new locations in places like El Segundo, San Clemente, and Santa Monica in the coming year.

Harvest comes to Hinoki

Century City stalwart Hinoki + The Bird is welcoming in chef Tyler Kinnett of Harvest in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The four decade old restaurant is rocking a West Coast pop-up on March 7 for $95 a head, with a menu that includes a lot of classic New England flavors paired up with Hinoki’s seasonal, Asian-inspired menu. Reservations can be made through the restaurant directly.

It’s strawberry season at Donut Man

Glendora doughnut favorite Donut Man is back at it again with the red strawberries, as beautifully shown in this Reddit thread from poster BlankVerse over the weekend. Get ‘em while you can.
