Get Out: LA Weekend, Books Galore, Chinatown, Fresh Photography
LA Weekly's LA Weekend
Today is the second day of the LA Weekly's LA Weekend. LAist is hungering for this afternoon's Carnivore panel, featuring Mark Peel of Campanile, Octavio Becerra of Palate Food + Wine, Vinny Dotolo from Animal and Susan Feniger of Street in a discussion moderated by Jonathan Gold. But there are other tasty non-food events today, all free, including film screenings, author panel discussions, and musical performances. The Weekly has all the deets, natch.
LA Times Festival of Books
It's rare that the weekend of the LAT Festival of Books isn't blazing hot, but it's looking to be pretty mild today weather-wise, so there goes your last excuse not to make the trip to UCLA and to explore the wonderful world of books. Okay, so with last-minute planning you're going to miss out on getting into some of the panels and talks, but that doesn't mean a visit would be for naught. There are exhibitors, book signings, and stage performances/demos/interviews. Bring something to cart home all your new books in!
