Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Cube Marketplace is setting down roots to the east in Downtown, and are gearing up to run a day full of fun and learning next Saturday. Last month their debut day was a big hit, so if you missed out then (maybe you were at a little Street Food Festival going on at the same time?) then reserve a spot now in one of their classes. Focused on growing food and learning about wine, there are four classes on tap next weekend as part of Cube Marketplace's Downtown Day. There's Kitchen Garden Basics from 10 a.m. to Noon ($50), Grow Delicious Tomatoes from 1-2 p.m. ($30), Piedmont: An Exploration of Italy's Greatest Wine Region at 12:30 & 3:30 p.m. ($45), and Vino Italiano: An Introduction to Italian Wine at 2 p.m. ($45). For more details about next weekend's and upcoming classes, and to register, check out Cube's online registration.

And though it's surely no substitution for learning about growing food or drinking Italian vino, if you can't make it to Cube's Downtown event, console yourself with their amazing burger at their Cafe on La Brea.
