Join Me At LA Weekly’s Inaugural Burgers & Beer Event

A Day of Craft beer and Burgers at the LA Coliseum

There’s nothing quite like slapping some burger patties on the good ol’ BBQ, beer in hand, while you chill in your backyard with a group of friends on a toasty summer Saturday afternoon.

With all the delicious craft burgers that seem to be popping up all over the place, you might even be tempted to recreate some in your own backyard, adding fried eggs or beer-battered jalapeños to the toppings. This can either have a tasty outcome, or a disastrous ending to your fun-in-the-sun Saturday shenanigans, leaving your friends to forever cement the images in Instagramland with photos of your ruined craft burger attempts.

Perhaps you should scrap the BBQ plans and head to LA Weekly’s inaugural Burgers & Beer celebration, taking place from 3pm-7pm at the LA Coliseum August 8th!

About The Roaming Bean (109 Articles)
You're probably wondering what the heck is a "Roaming Bean"... Given that I am clearly not a Bean, and my name is Jen, what gives with this Bean thing, right? A friend of mine called me JenBean as a child, and it kinda stuck. Actually, it really stuck... even my license plate says Jenbean. And seeing as I have this grand lust to wander the world, The Roaming Bean seemed suitable. I've changed my career path more times than I have my underwear (minus all the times I've gone commando).... from animating, to forensic pathology, to international business, to fashion marketing and even to my wonderful and favorite of the bunch, degree in culinary arts, nothing kept my attention. Nothing was fun enough to do every day for the rest of my life. I mean, even though I cooked for celebrities in the heart of Hollywood, CA, why the hell would I want to sweat my ass off in a ridiculously HOT kitchen for most of the day and go home smelling like beef and onions? And the chef hat?? Do you know what that did to my hair?? Enter traveling.... The rainy day I descended down the tower of Notre Dame in Paris, gripping on to the railing for dear life so not to slip and tumble to an early death from the torrential down pour that was causing a small flood in the stairwell, my life changed. When I safely made it to the ground, legs shaky from an apparent lack of fitness it requires to walk up and down 387 steep stairs, I realized my hands were stained a delightful copper color from the rusted hand rail I had so dearly clung to. Desperate to get the icky stuff off my supple hands, and no running water in sight, I did what any other hopeless idiot would have done: I washed my hands in the nearest Parisian gutter. It was that moment that changed my life... I threw away my hair dryer, my rolling luggage and my dignity. I let my hair go natural, I bought a back pack and I CAMPED through Europe for a month and a half. Yes my friends, I crossed over into a savage traveling beast. Ok, a lot of people travel that way. But I didn't. And I'm so incredibly thankful for that rainy day in Paris that made me realize the world is a pretty sweet place. That realization led me on a quest; a quest to get out there, see things, soak up some local culture and eat my way around the world (with minimal food-related illnesses, such as but not limited to raging diarrhea).

  1. Enjoyed your story of epiphany and independence! Wondering if you will publish a review/pics of the burger event, which I also attended. I skipped the beer (not a favorite anyway, so wasn’t a hardship) and visited 18 of the 30-odd burger stands, was overwhelmed, foraged gamely on anyway, and several vendors let me take a few home at evenings end. Now I am eager to hear what others thought!

  2. I don’t see my favorite Diddy Riese?
