3 Ways To Eat Your Way Through The Weekend
The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied—and sated, for that matter.
2nd Annual Los Angeles Sriracha Festival: This Sunday, lovers of L.A.'s most famous food stuff can indulge in a chef-driven, all-inclusive, 21+ event paying homage to the one and only Sriracha. There'll be everything from local craft beer, cocktails, savory dishes and desserts using the hot sauce, so brace yourself for some heat. This second Sriracha Festival will be taking place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Chinatown's Central Plaza. Savory Sriracha-themed dishes will be served at the event, created by the chefs of Sqirl, Jitlada, Mud Hen Tavern, Eggslut, Greenspan's Grilled Cheese, Little Jewel of New Orleans, Mendocino Farms, and Beachwood BBQ, among others.

Three Weavers Brewing Company Opening: Lord knows it's tough to open a business in this fair city, but thankfully a new brewery called Three Weavers has managed to make it happen. They'll be throwing open their doors this Saturday to celebrate—with plenty of beer of course. At the fete, you'll be able to taste their core portfolio—Expatriate IPA, Seafarer kolsch, Stateside session IPA, Deep Roots English ESB, and Midnight Flight imperial stout. The party starts at 2 p.m., and the $20 tickets (or $25 at the door) benefit the I Have A Dream Foundation of Los Angeles. That price includes four pours. You can find out more info here.
CCAP Sweet and Savory Fest: Connie & Ted’s, Pétrossian and the Church Key in West Hollywood, Chinois on Main in Santa Monica, Angelini Osteria in Fairfax and plenty more restaurants will be doling out bites at this food filled event held at the Art Institute of Los Angeles in Santa Monica. It's on Sunday from 3 until 7 p.m. It's a little on pricey side: tickets start at $100 but your gluttony goes towards a good cause, raising funds for the C-CAP Los Angeles Scholarship Program for At-Risk Youth, preparing the high school students for college and careers in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
