Happy Friday Angelenos! Looking for things to do in L.A.? This weekend you’ll get to stamp your virtual passports with holidays in Brazil, Mexico and India with events to stir your taste for adventure!
Tonight, head down to Highland Park and join rabid Eastside Yelpers for the Highland Park Taco Crawl. Kicking off at the near-legendary La Estrella Taco Truck on York Blvd. at 7:30PM, you’ll sample some of the best truck and street food offerings for $1-1.50 a taco. I can’t think of a better way to meet new friends and neighbors than over drinking games and taco eating contests!
Love Brazilian music, churrascarias and caipirinhas? The Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival is betting you’ll love Brazilian movies too by inviting all L.A. cinephiles for the closing weekend of FREE screenings. Yes, FREE. Showcasing the best in independent cinema, you’re encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime.
On Saturday, Pasadena’s Blue13 Dance Company will be performing their version of the timeless tale of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet and Tony and Maria (West Side Story) at the beautiful Ford Theater. Dubbed “Fire & Powder,” hip-hop Capulets will battle Bollywood Montagues with moves and music so infectious, you’ll be hard pressed to stay in your seat. Have a great weekend!
