Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your 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.

Barks and Brews at Angel City:Downtown L.A.'s Angel City Brewing is partnering up with Much Love Animal Rescue to do an event called Barks, Bubbles & Brews this Sunday, where beer- and dog-loving Angelenos can get their pups sudsed up while they do the same. For a $10 donation, your pooch will get a wash while you get a brew. Angel City will donate 15% of the day’s beers sales to the rescue group. There will also be live music and food trucks on site.

Bouchon's Birthday Party: To celebrate Bouchon's second birthday, the Bouchon Bakery downstairs will be slanging $2.00 macarons all weekend, and a special white confetti birthday cupcake. They'll also be doing discounted juices and cold brew coffee, so if you're in the area stop by. You can justify your sweets splurges by drinking some fresh juice made from watermelon, cucumber, raspberry, ginger, lemon, kale, celery, parsley, or romaine, and walk it off around BH afterwards.

Backyard BBQ and Beer Trucks at Freddy Smalls: This Sunday, Freddy Small's will be firing up the 'que and making an all you can eat feast that'll put your favorite KBBQ spot to shame. Think Maryland Blue Crab, tri-tip, roasted pork shoulder tacos, and more. What's even more exciting that they'll be having a craft beer truck on site for the sipping. The event starts at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $45 in advance and $55 at the door and can be purchased by calling 310-479-3000.
