If you felt like you took the weather for granted before this week's rainpacolypse, here's your chance to make up for it. This Saturday afternoon, Cube Marketplace is opening up their downtown location for a rooftop barbecue to support the Cube Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving dietary habits, clean-food access and nutritional knowledge among underprivileged LA-area children and their families.

Bay Area brands Fatted Calf Charcuterie and Rancho Gordo Heirloom Beans (you might have heard of them if you read the Wall Street Journal, Food and Wine, Gourmet, Bon Appetit...) will be on hand to feed you to your heart's content while you enjoy the live music and drink artisan beers or Italian wines (if you're feelin' fancy) or munch on some housemade ice cream sandwiches. A lot of the food events in the last few months have been north of 100 dollars (including this weekend's Gold Standard), so it's nice to see that you can get all of this food (and all of the money goes to charity) for 65 dollars. Plus, you get a swag bag filled with products from these artisans to take home. To buy tickets, click here.
