Food & Drink

Artisanal LA

This eats-intensive gift show hits the Santa Monica Place Mall for round two, w/ local vendors hawking everything from handmade pies, to locally sourced goat cheese, to tote bags (seriously) inspired by wine. They'll also have DJs, mixology demos, and a preview of new specialty food shop The Market, also the name of John Grisham's latest thriller, in which a young superstar grocery bagger becomes suspicious of upper management when two dudes from the butcher dept die in a strange scuba accident in the Grand Caymans.
