Before you
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.

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.

Supping on Super Bowl Sunday: This week we've been posting all sorts of Super Bowl recipes and ideas for catering, but if you're not down with that you can always get out. Here are some of the best spots in L.A. to get your grub on while you watch the big game. Because whether you're rooting for the Niners or the Ravens, we know you want to eat well.

Texas-style happy hour: For those looking to rein in their wallets, all drinks at the new cowboy-inspired Tinhorn Flats in Hollywood are reduced by $2 during happy hour, which runs everyday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. The restaurant just opened this week, and is serving up Texas fare like cowboy chili and puffy tacos. Daily specials on the food frontier include Sunday’s two-for-one apps and Saturday’s 10-ounce ribeye steak for $12.

DineLA comes to a close: Friday is the last day to partake in L.A.'s biannual restaurant week. Chow down while you can. Here's a list of participating restaurants.

Barbershop pop-up relaunches: The Barbershop pop-up, helmed by chef Walter el Nagar and partner Mario Vollera, finds a new home in Culver City today at La Petite Crêperie. The $65 per person dinners will pair traditional Italian technique with modernist twists in a five course tasting menu. The focus is on finds from the LA Fish Market and the SaMo farmers markets.
