Vegan Pizza or Craft Beer: Two Fun Echo Park Crawls This Week
Many Echo Park-ers prefer bicycles as their mode of transporation, but if you're more of a crawler, two upcoming events will certainly suit your fancy. Considering how perfect of a pair beer and pizza are, it's a shame they're not on the same day. But either way, it's bound to be a good time.
First on deck is theEcho Park Pub Crawl with Golden Road Brewing, which will start at Sunset Beer Co. at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Golden Road's brewers and staff will lead craft beer geeks down Sunset to sample their wares -- like Point the Way IPA, Golden Road Hefeweizen, Get Up Offa that Brown, Either Side of the Hill, Schwartz Stout on espresso beans -- at various bars. The last stop will be Mohawk Bend, in case you're working late. The organizers promise good times and dancing. What's not to love?
If you find yourself looking for more lollygagging this weekend, vegan blogger QuarryGirl will be hosting a vegan pizza crawl in the area. The event will take place on Saturday, June 30 at several local establishments including Mohawk Bend, Two Boots, Masa, LA Pizza Company, and Sunset Beer Company. There's no real streamlined meet-up; the crawl is more of an initiative to get the neighborhood out to try some vegan cuisine. More details are on their Facebook page. Here's a list of the specials:
-Mohawk Bend (2141 West Sunset Boulevard) will be offering new signature specialty pizzas along with other specials, which are still TBD
-Two Boots (1818 W Sunset Blvd) will be offering 15% off vegan slices
-Masa (1800 W Sunset Blvd) will be offering 25% off all vegan deep dish pizzas (dine in only)
-LA Pizza Co (1498 W Sunset Blvd) will be offering 2 vegan slices for $4
-Sunset Beer Co, who shares a patio with LA Pizza Co, will be offering $1 off draught beers for pizza crawlers who have a receipt from one of the participating establishments
