Lina Lecaro presents and signs Los Angeles’ Best Dive Bars @Book Soup
LA Weekly's nightlife columnist Lina Lecaro presents her work, Los Angeles' Best Dive Bars, in person for a signing at Book Soup tonight at 7 p.m. Lecaro's book includes info on "the city’s liveliest, lowlife n’ liquor-soaked landmarks. This essential booze bible has the lowdown on which bars serve free food, which have great—and not so great—karaoke, bars that appear in your favorite movies and much, much more." Meet Lecaro, get your copy autographed, and then see what's nearby on a Sunday night and put that book to work for you!

Gone With the Wind @ The Aero Theatre
