This Weekend: Grilled Cheese Duo, Tweet Crawl, Weekend Happy Hour

— by Caroline on Crack

It’s going to be a gor-jus spring weekend. What are you going to do? Hike? Biking? Road trip? In any case, I’ve got a few ideas.

Friday, April 2

Tillamook’s Loaf Tour and Grilled Cheese Truck Team Up
Tillamook’s Loaf Love Tour is partnering with the Grilled Cheese Truck to bring the masses grilled cheese goodness at the Beverly Hills Porsche dealership today from 11:30am to 2pm. They’ll be giving out samples of their cheddar cheese as well as handing out coupons. But if you miss them, check them out later at First Friday on Abbot Kinney — no samples there, though.

  • 11:30am-2pm. At Beverly Hills Porsche Dealership, 8425 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills (map).

Saturday, April 3

Santa Anita Derby Day 5K
One of my favorite fun runs everrr as the course has you running through the beautiful, blooming L.A. Arboretum and finishing on a real horse track! If you don’t feel like running, it also makes for a wonderful stroll. At the end, you have a hoppin’ post-race party waiting for you with food, drinks and live music.

  • 6:30am. $35. Santa Anita Park, 285 W. Huntington Drive, Arcadia (map).

Hungry Cat’s Weekend Happy Hour Debuts
Everyone’s favorite Hollywood Cat kicks off its weekend happy hour where you can enjoy half off all specialty cocktails which end up costing about $5-$6 and half off draft beer from the likes of Craftsman, Telegraph and North Coast brewing companies.

  • 12-5pm, Saturdays and Sundays. Hungry Cat, 1535 N. Vine Street, Hollywood (map). (323) 462-2155.

Tweet Crawl 4: Eggstravaganza on the Strip
A Tweetup not to be missed where Tweeps will play beer pong at the Standard, go on a prize-filled Easter egg hunt, enjoy some comedy at the Comedy Store, and of course plenty of drink specials like $3 Easter egg cocktails and $1 bartender?s choice shots at the Viper Room. End point is the Roxy for egg decorating, more drink specials and music.

  • 3pm. Starts at the Standard, 8300 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood (map). For information, email alf [at]
