Grand Park in DTLA is celebrating their 10th Anniversary with two days of FREE Concerts and Family Fun!

Sunday, October 9th

Have you heard of Family Style Fest? In truth, I hadn't, but it might be one of the better food festivals out there right now. Taking place from 12 to 8 p.m. in the CBS lot, it's a chance to try some of the hardest restaurants to snag rezzies in. Enjoy bites from Osteria Mozza, Motherwolf, Antico Nuovo, Yangban Society, and more. BadMaash will also be there doing a super cool collaboration with Future Farm making plant-based Indian Nachos. The ticket prices are fairly affordable for a food festival, beginning at $60, but you still need to pay for food. VIP Tickets have more freebies attached - but those are currently sold out. Again, consider this your chance to try the restaurants with impossible reservations and just purchase the food you're most excited about. Bonus: kids under 12 are free! Usually, you can't even bring kids to a boozy food fest, so I'm really loving this one.

Also, on Sunday, it's World Sake Day, and OTOTO in Echo Park is celebrating with an afternoon tasting featuring 40 different Sakes along with Katsu Sando bites and other delicious nosh. The event takes place from 2 to 5 p.m., and you can secure your spot on the OTOTO Tock page. The cost is $65.
