LA LOVES TO FESTIVAL. This Here Is Your Guide.

“Festival” and/or “food” should be sandwiched somewhere in between “Los” and “Angeles” because THAT is basically our middle name here. We love to eat, we love to drink, and we love to do both in one place, preferably in a really cool location with other like-minded people with an inner fat kid and an appreciation for adult beverages. August is the month to marathon this festival going shiznit, so we’ve rounded up some pretty epic events to put on your list of “exciting things to try in Los Angeles” this month. Get to planning.

LUCKY RICE FOOD FEST  | 8/7 – uhhh yes, that’d be today.

LA CRAFT BEER CRAWL FESTIVAL THING | 8/9

This year will be the FIFTH year running of the LA Craft Beer Crawl, so good news is it looks like they’re doing something right, I know I wouldn’t turn down an opportunity to try 100 different beers and that is EXACTLY what you will be doing should you join in on the beer crawl festivities. Enjoy said beers at 8 different and distinct DTLA bars, all within walking distance for your stumbling convince and hang out with two of the coolest chicks I’m still dying to meet, Hallie Beaune and Christina Perozzi also known as “The Beer Chicks”.

LA FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL | 8/22 – 8/24

There’s so much happening with this I don’t even know where to begin. But as you may guess, it involves food and wine. Crazy. Any and every chef you can pretty much think of has had or currently has some sort of hand in the success of these events and this year looks like it will be no different. There is a variety of different foodie events going on in a variety of different locations so it’s up to you to decide which parts interest you! It’s gonna cost ya but I’m guessing it will be worth it.

LA WEEKLY’S PANCAKE BREAKFAST | 8/24

I go to pretty much all of LA Weekly’s foodie events because they just get me? This event will be no different as they’ve gone ahead and booked some of LA’s top breakfast makin’ mavens in one space for an epic day of pancake (and other brunch items) worship. I love brunch more than most things, I know a lot of you Angelenos share my sentiment so get ready because some of our favs like A-Frame, eggslut, Fifty Seven, and Farmshop will be in attendance!!! I’m practically dancing out of this chair thinking about how AWESOME this is gonna be.
