The LA Weekend hosted by The LA Weekly and sponsored by Nike has a wide variety of free events happening at The Ricardo Montalban Theater tonight and tomorrow, including music, film, dance, readings, book signings, and even a visit from the Kogi Korean taco truck.

But one event has us giddy with anticipation.

At noon tomorrow, Jonathan Gold will be moderating a panel called Carnivore! Other heavy hitters on the LA food scene including Mark Peel of Campanile, Octavio Becerra of Palate Food + Wine, Vinny Dotolo from Animal and Susan Feniger of Street will be participating.

According to Gold, the focus will be on "the meat of culture; the culture of meat. A celebration of carnal pleasure rooted in deep respect for the animals involved." Jonathan Gold tells LAist, "We will answer the most pressing question of our times: Why pork belly? Why now?"

Hot dogs will also be available for lunch at noon from Let's Be Frank. If you are a vegan or professional fashion model, you can while away the time dancing in the Belvedere Lounge from noon-4pm wth DJ Kiddkit.
