The heatwave is on and that means one thing - it’s unofficially fall in LA. While maintaining close contact with your friend that has a pool is a smart idea until at least October, there are plenty of other activities for you to get involved in this week. These include a Filipino brunch pop-up, a sustainable farmers market, and more.
Since debuting last year during the pandemic, this Filipino pop-up in La Cañada Flintridge has been among our favorite places to eat in the entire city. And this weekend, they’re doing something a little different - brunch. Running from Friday, September 10th to Saturday the 11th, Kuya Lord is selling massive brunch platters that include two different kinds of longsilog, beef short ribs, blue prawns, yellowtail collar, and lucenachon, or roasted rolled pork belly. All the ordering is done via their Instagram, and pickup is between 11:30am-2:30pm each day.
Burgers She Wrote
Another day, another delicious-looking smashburger appears in Los Angeles. This time around, they're from Burgers She Wrote. Located in Beverly Grove, this tiny shop serves an Oklahoma burger with thinly sliced onions mashed in the patty. If this sounds of interest to you, they’re open every day this week from 11:30am-9:30pm.
If your body is telling you to dance this weekend, you should probably listen to it. Echoplex is bringing back their popular dance party, Echo Flex, this Saturday, September 11th. It’s all 2000’s-era hip hop, so expect to hear a lot of Missy Elliott, 50 Cent, and T-Pain. RSVP and be one of the first 100 people to get free entry, otherwise you'll have to pay $10 at the door.
Starting September 7th, this classic burger shack in West LA is bringing back their late-night hours. It’s a huge win for casual insomniacs or for anyone who believes burgers are only meant to be eaten after dessert. They’ll be open during the week until 11pm and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
Green Life Food market
Head to Pasadena this weekend for the Green Life Food Market, which is an all-day market seeking to promote a healthy, sustainable, and eco-friendly way of life. The event is running from 12:30-4pm on Sunday, September 12th, and will feature organic food vendors, wine tents, gardening and flower shops, taiko drumming, giveaways, raffles, and more.
