Los Angeles Food & Wine: Dan Dunn’s Booze, Blues & BBQ
This sold-out event at the Pebble Beach Food & Wine is sure to be quite saucy with the likes of barbecue by Baby Blues BBQ and cocktails by celebrated pro drinker Dan “The Imbiber” Dunn. If you’re not into the high-falutin’ fixings of the other LAFW events, this is the one for you.

  • 4:30pm. $50. LA Live, 800 W Olympic Boulevard, Downtown (map).

Saturday, October 15

Shop Lot Fashion Truck Lot
You’ve shopped for food off trucks, so why not fashion? This weekend is L.A.’s first fashion truck lot featuring mobile boutiques Le Fashion Truck, Skulltastic, and T-Ruck. Wonder where they park the changing room? Maybe afterward, hit up the Los Feliz Shop Hop (6-10pm), a mini block shopping party which happens to feature free booze!

  • Saturday-Sunday, 1-6pm. Hyperion & Sunset in Silver Lake (map).

Sunday, October 16

Golden Road Brewing Grand Opening
Celebrate the opening of L.A.’s “largest craft beer brewery” by drinking lots of beer, and not just from Golden Road but guest breweries like Firestone Walker, Sierra Nevada, Eagle Rock Brewery and Dogfish Head. Huzzah! Tickets are $20-$25 and include three pour tickets and a 12-ounce logo glass.

  • 2-7pm. $20 advance/$25 door. Golden Road Brewing, 5430 W San Fernando Road, Los Angeles (map). (213) 537-4655.

3rd Annual Subway Zombie Walk
OK, I don’t think I could ever participate in a zombie walk. It would creep me out too much. But this sounds like so much fun considering the end point for all the zombie lurching is in Hollywood and Highland. So far the Facebook event page has 530 zombies signed up so it’s going to be a great crowd. After the shambling is done, maybe break off into a zombie bar crawl!

  • 4-7pm. Meeting point: North Hollywood Red Line Station (map).
