LA Weekly is back with their deliciously fabulous event The Essentials, taking place at one of my favorite venues in DTLA, the California Market Place. Enjoy panoramic views of our beautiful city while chomping away on some of the hottest eats in LA, from favorites such as Kogi, POT, Republique, Sqirl, Broken Spanish and many, many more, Saturday February 20th from 6pm-10pm.
Last year’s event had incredible offerings, with my favorites being miso glazed donuts from Hinoki and the Bird and bacon popcorn from Tar and Roses. Lines were crazy, people were hungry and the drinks were a-flowin’, all while we were perched high above the hustle and bustle of the streets below. It was epic, and I cannot wait to see what the talented chefs of the participating restaurants have in store for us this year!
The wonderful people over at LA Weekly have given me TWO tickets to giveaway to this tasty event, so if you want a chance at winning ’em, CLICK HERE TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY. If you don’t want to take the chance of missing out (and I HIGHLY suggest you don’t), tickets can be purchased HERE. A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to Food Forward, an organization that is helping combat hunger by connecting those in need with local produce that would otherwise go to waste.
The fabulous staff at LA Weekly have graciously invited me to attend The Essentials in exchange for blogging. All opinions, like always, are my own.
