The Edison’s 35-Cent Cocktail and the $1 Centennial Cocktail Return
They went away for a bit but are now back after the Edison won LA’s Downtown News award for Best Happy Hour! Every Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 7pm, you can score the 35-cent cocktail and every Wednesday through Friday the $1 cocktail (1 per customer). The Edison happy hour is gonna make you do math by giving you 40% off house cocktails, well and select beer and wine by the glass. At least they have nosh like vegetable panini and chicken wings for a straight-up $5. BTW, don’t forget to tip your bartender. Just because the drink is cheap doesn’t mean you should be.

  • The Edison, 108 W 2nd Street, Downtown (map). (213) 613-0000.

Grease Sing-a-Long in the Hollywood Bowl
OK, who doesn’t know all the words to “You’re the One That I Want”? Man, I LOVE this movie. John Travolta was so hot and Olivia Newton-John was rockin’ her extreme makeover. Grab your friends, a bottle of wine and a picnic basket and sing your heart out at this fun Bowl-tastic sing-a-long. Frenchy will be hosting the evening! BTW, I’ve always wanted pink hair thanks to her.

  • 7pm. Tickets $21-$72. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood (map). (323) 850-2000.

Buy Your Tickets to LA Street Food Fest Summer Tasting Event
Only one month away! The trucks have been replaced by booths, hopefully easing the lines situation. In addition to all the yummy street food and food truck fixins — Coolhaus, Manila Machine, Grilled Cheese Truck, World Fare — there will be two Singha beer gardens plus specialty cocktails created by LA’s own mixologists. Bring a picnic basket and a blanket and stake out a spot on the grass in the Rose Bowl. Live performances by The Deadly Syndrome and Warpaint.

  • July 24, 5-9pm. $45 general, $65 VIP. Rose Bowl, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena (map).

Foodie Fitness’ Urban Hike in Orange County
Join me and Foodie Fitness, aka H.C. of LA/OC Foodventures, for a trek through the OC. Actually H.C. will be walking the entire length of Beach Boulevard from La Habra to Huntington Beach (21 miles!). I’ll just join him for the last 6-10 miles before he reaches the final destination: Don the Beachcomber for a prix fixe menu with tiki drink flight! It’s free to join, you just pay for your own food and drink. Hope to see you there!

  • Starts at 7am at Whittier and Beach in La Habra (map). Look for the Asian dude with glasses and a big backpack.
