6 Exciting Things To Do & Eat Between March 2nd-7th
6 great ways to welcome in March.
This week marks the official start to March which, among other things, means we’re less than two weeks away from Daylight Savings Time. And that’s at least something to celebrate, right? That and all these other exciting events happening this week, including a chicken and Champagne night, comedy shows, fundraisers, and more.
Little Fish’s pop-up at Checker Hall in Highland Park has been going strong for over two months, but this weekend, the seafood-focused spot is beginning brunch service for the first time ever. Running from 10am-3pm on Sunday, March 6th, the service will include an entirely new menu featuring dishes like house-cured tuna salad and potato latkes with smoked salmon roe, plus plenty of old favorites like the fried fish sandwich. Walk-ins are welcome.
Malli is a Mexican inspired Jewish pop-up that’s doing something a little different this week. On March 1st and 2nd, they’re taking over Melody for a special two night Argentine-style asado. They’ll be cooking homemade sausages, meats such as short rib and chorizo, and seasonal produce like provolone-stuffed eggplant all over a live fire. The event runs from 5-10pm each night and walk-ins are welcome.
Community group Gather For Food is hosting a massive charity bake fundraiser this Saturday, March 5th to help raise funds for World Central Kitchen and Libereco PHR, two charities assisting refugees in the Ukrainian crisis. So far, there are over 30 chefs and bakeries from LA participating, and all pre-ordering can be done through Gather For Good’s website.
If you’re looking to get a little midweek fancy, head over to All Day Baby in Silver Lake for fried chicken and Champagne night on Wednesday, March 2nd. The menu will feature a special $26 plate that includes five pieces of chicken, a house biscuit, and smoked honey butter with chilis, as well as champagne flights for $25. Reservations are definitely encouraged.
One of our favorite Eastside bars, The Airliner, is bringing back the Dirty Laundry Comedy Show this Thursday, March 3rd from 7-11pm. The event is hosted by Morgan Miller and will feature queer comics seen on Comedy Central, Conan, Stephen Colbert, and more. Tickets are $7 ($10 at the door), but be sure to get there early to take advantage of Airliner’s excellent Happy Hour from 5-7pm which includes $6 craft beer and well drinks, $7 cocktails, and food specials.
This Thursday, March 3rd, Azay in Little Tokyo is offering a $30 prepared bento box that includes shrimp, salmon roe, squid, egg, and more in honor of Hinamatsuri.
