EAT SOME DUMPLINGS

This Saturday, April 2nd and Sunday, April 3rd, Woon Kitchen will be popping up at Brain Dead Studios across the street from Fairfax High School. Running each day from 12-4pm, the collaborative menu will feature dishes like chewy beef noodles, orange chicken wings, and dumplings in chili sauce. Everything is first come, first served, so we recommend getting there early before they sell out.

CHECK OUT A JAZZ CLUB

Sure, LA will never be New Orleans when it comes to jazz music, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great places to experience it here. Take Herb Alpert’s, an upscale ballroom in Bel-Air where suit jackets and floor-length evening gowns are the preferred uniforms or The Baked Potato, a classic dive bar in Universal City that only serves—you guessed it—baked potatoes. We suggest getting tickets in advance.
