Milk Bar anticipation
Milk Bar’s flagship West Coast location on Melrose is getting closer and closer to reality, but in the meantime the fun-loving company will be continuing its run of pop-ups around the city. Next up is an evening celebration at the recently-opened Night + Market Sahm this Friday, complete with an Airstream trailer.
While the spiciness goes on inside, outside Tosi’s team will be dishing out confetti and compost cookies for $3 a pop, crack pie slices for $6 each, full cookie tines, and assorted swag, among other things. The evening event runs Friday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Boyle Heights flavors
The seventh annual Taste of Boyle Heights returns on May 24, and tickets are available now. Expect food from iconic restaurants and street vendors in the area alike, along with live music and more.
Check out the preparation and finishing deliciousness of the birria tacos at newer South LA star Teddy’s Red Tacos. And, of course, it’s set to some pretty epic music.

Baltaire for the holidays
Brentwood’s Baltaire is doing an Easter brunch on April 1. The buffet-style setup will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include everything from the usual breakfast staples to a seafood tower, prime rib station, roasted spring lamb, and desserts. The upscale event runs $85 a head for adults, $45 for kids.
Koreatown’s building boom
Koreatown’s continued development means an influx of dense new housing, says Curbed LA, along with plans for even more restaurants — like this mixed-use proposal that would add two eateries alongside 80 hotel rooms and other long-term housing.
Dunkin’ for the people
Dunkin’ Donuts has been on a rebrand tear of late, opening up their first next-generation location in Massachusetts back in January. That outlet features a smaller footprint and increased focus on mobile ordering, grab and go items, digital ordering kiosks, and current-day coffee needs like nitro cold brew. Now the company is set to unveil its second such location down in Corona at 924 E. Ontario Avenue as of tomorrow, and the first 100 people in line will get free coffee for a year.
