LA Beer Week
LA Beer Week
Friday - Sunday
Jun 22-24
All over LA
We know what you’re thinking: “isn’t every week Beer Week?” True, but not every week is as well-organized as the LA Brewers Guild’s lineup, which includes venues hosting stand-up comedy, sumo suit wrestling, sour festivals, and a full-on beer run through nine breweries in Torrance.
Cost: Varies by location
Friday - Sunday
Jun 22-24
Fairfax
Chao Krung opened as LA’s second Thai restaurant back in 1969, serving up authentic recipes passed down through generations of owner Katy Noochla-Or and Amanda Kuntee’s family. The newly revamped menu has a number of must-try dishes, including Chiang Mai curry noodles, fish sauce wings, and a whole fried fish, along with drink options of craft beer, wine, and coconut cocktails.
Cost: $5-25
Friday - Sunday
Jun 22-24
Culver City
True fine dining experiences are few and far between in Los Angeles, so while you could head up to Vespertine, the bizarro “place of cognitive dissonance” we still haven’t eaten at, we’d much prefer to drop some dining bucket list money on the new tasting menu at Lukshon. The multi-course menu at Sang Yoon’s Asian eatery sports Channel Island Box Crab Miang with shallots, avocado, and Tahitian citrus, as well as grilled Austrian wagyu "au poivre" with cucumber and red gem lettuce.
Cost: $110

Friday - Saturday
Jun 22-23
Hollywood
Madame Siam Sideshow Emporium is a Houston Brothers bar, so you know it’s going to have a sweet hidden entrance, kickass cocktails, and an atmosphere that’ll instantly contend for coolest bar in LA. The venue, which was once a famous speakeasy frequented by Hollywood's original heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, is now a clandestine carnival-themed bar with games of skill and sideshow acts hidden inside -- including one where you’ll hurl bean bags at the faces of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.
Cost: Varies

Downtown (TBA)
Sin-A-Rama is an underground, immersive party, inspired by 1970s exploitation cinema where attendees will be transported onto the set of a grindhouse movie. Actors portraying sleazy film stars will mix and mingle with the crowd, driving a terrifying narrative with live music and burlesque acts throughout.
Cost: $80
Saturday - Sunday
Jun 23-24
Pasadena
Not only will Neil Young and ​Jack White be serenading the Rose Bowl grounds for this weekend’s music festival, but Arroyo Seco is also elevating its culinary game thanks to dishes like Freedman’s pastrami Crunchwrap Supreme, Jon & Vinny’s spicy fusilli, and the Lobster Roll with pickled mustard seed, micro celery, and crushed potato chips from Playa Provisions.
Cost: $150-500
Sunday
Jun 24
Downtown
Grab a flight of brews and a ringside seat as Boomtown Brewery plays host to Bumps and Brewses, a pro wrestling card featuring WWE Attitude Era stars Al Snow and Hardcore Holly, along with a main event matchup between Scorpio Sky and Douglas James.
Cost: $25
Sunday
Jun 24
Glendale
We don’t want to say the Burgers Never Say Die revival is the most important thing to happen to Glendale -- there is a Selfie Museum there now -- but it’s pretty damn exciting. Hop in the line reaching out the door and collect your perfectly griddled burger patty and peruse Glendale Tap’s impressive beer list.
Cost: $5-7
