Another three-day weekend is here, so put it to good use! Fill up on yummy noodles, head over to a photography exhibit for a creative jolt and more.
Yup, noodles!! In all shapes and forms — classic bowls of ramen, tacos, burritos, you name it. This Asian food fest even has some non-noodle alternatives, including a Hot Cheeto sushi burrito. You might want to consider this your "cheat day" from your New Year's resolution.
CULTURE VULTURE PICK
In need of some zen? Head over to this photography exhibition to view countless displays still captured by an extensive roster of international artists and relax your mind. Who knows — it might get your creative juices flowing for any future projects of yours. For a wider range of art, check out the L.A. Art Show.
This early celebration will consist of a "Love & Forgiveness"-themed parade, culminating in a festival at Martin Luther King Jr. Park in Long Beach. Feel free to take pets and kids to honor his iconic life. For closer celebrations, choose from another L.A.'s long-running parade or head over to the California African American Museum for family art workshops and readings of his speeches.
WHEN: Saturday, Jan. 14, 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: Parade kicks off at intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Anaheim Street in Long Beach
This mega festival will feature eight performance stages, three food courts, a beer garden and so much more for Angelenos who feel like celebrating the Lunar New Year a little early. Whether you feel like shopping, attending manga and video game exhibitions or just stuffing your face with all kinds of good food, there's something for everyone.
If you've been unable to keep warm during the recent storms, here's one solution: fill up on a variety of whiskeys in an outdoor bar with fake snow! Once you've toasted up a bit, grab a bite from nearby food trucks or join a game of snow bowling. Cheers!
We're not really sure why this is happening, but it is. Whether you love or hate the movie, it might be something to check out — just to say you did. It's exactly what it sounds like: a store filled with about 14,000 VHS copies of the film. The exhibition of the video tapes will be open through the end of the month, with different musical performances each night. Opening night will be the only free night, so get there early — there might be more fans of the film than you think.
We were all saddened last month by the loss of Carrie Fisher and her legendary mother, Debbie Reynolds. Here's a joyful way to remember Debbie: seeing her singing and dancing across "Singin' In The Rain" on the big screen, for a limited time. Grab your popcorn and soda, and try not to sob too loudly.
