BIKING: de LaB and the Flying Pigeon LA are hosting a Design-n-Dim Sum bike ride. Now it might be a little late to get the dim sum since the group wanted to make reservations ahead of time, but you can follow the group on Twitter and then join it at any point throughout the day as it heads to Caine's Arcade, artist Zoe Crosher's Studio, Preen Inc. and finally Golden Dragon Restaurant for dim sum. Meet at the Flying Pigeon at 11 am and they'll hit the road by 11:30. For more information and addresses, visit the event's page.

BBQ: What says summer better than a BBQ? Tony’s Saloon in downtown LA’s Arts District will host sommelier Adam Vourvoulis (Ink) and chef Adam Cole (Lindy and Grundy) for a pop-up BBQ featuring a locally grown, pastured pig from ReRide Ranch (smoked) complete with housemade fixins’ including pickles, biscuits, coleslaw all available and sold at a per pound price. Plus on the spot ice cream from Nitro Dreams, and drink specials. The BBQ begins at 3:00 pm and lasts until the food runs out!
