The weekend shouldn’t just be used for errands — you've earned the right to live a little after a long week! We don’t know about you, but we don’t want to waste a single second of it. When Friday rolls around, we're ready to start the fun — and this is what we’ll be doing in Los Angeles!
EAT IT UP
Finally! The beloved bakery, Milk Bar, is coming to LA on Saturday at 11 a.m. With locations in New York City, the District of Columbia, Las Vegas, and Toronto, this is the first location on the West Coast. The owner, Christina Tosi, created the shop as an ode to nostalgia. You can expect their famous soft-serve ice cream that tastes exactly like the milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl. In addition, prepare your stomach for truffles, cookies, shakes, crack pie, and more! Head on over to the shop on Melrose and see what all the hype is about.
Every Sunday, you can go to the Alameda Produce Market in DTLA and try foods you’ve never had before! There’s no shortage of creativity at Smorgasburg LA. There are dishes like vegan donut ice cream sandwiches, churro bites topped with Fruity Pebbles, and bacon, egg, cheese, and avocado sandwiches. Plus, there are new offerings every week!
SEE IT UP
Who doesn’t love The Goonies?! The ‘80s classic film is coming to the NeueHouse location of the Rooftop Cinema Club. The movie starts at 9:30 p.m., but go an hour early to enjoy street food, cocktails, and Hollywood views beforehand. Get your ticket here!
If you’ve already seen A Quiet Place, you know how chilling it really is. And what a cool experience to watch it at the DTLA location of the Rooftop Cinema Club! Doors open at 6:30 p.m. so you can enjoy street food and rooftop views before the screening at 7 p.m. Get your ticket now!
