    Opening up in downtown’s snazzy new TASTE at FIGat7th, Juicy Lucy is exactly what you want from an upscale fast-food joint. It’s tasty, delicious, and a cut-above the ordinary burger and fries.

    These happy hours are a chance to eat and drink well in this city on a limited budget.
  • Food
    Locally-sourced, seasonal, organically grown, farm to table—we’ve grown used to these adjectives gracing food menus across the city, but more often these modifiers are also referring to a delicious approach to cocktails.
  • Arts and Entertainment
    Performing for one of KCRW's Berkley Street Sessions(think small studio session opened to about 175 "friends" in Bob Clearmountain's Apogee studio in Santa Monica), the intimate show on April 5 featured the L.A.-based band's new album, Here, which will be released in May.

    Got a passion for all things motorized and two-wheeled? Then the Progressive International Motorcycle show being held this weekend in Long Beach is just the ticket. The show, running through Sunday at the Long Beach convention center is the place for those of us on the West Coast to see the debut of new motorcycles, learn more about riding and see some of the bikes that transcend the idea of mere transportation to become art.
