Don't Miss These Fun Things To Do This Weekend In Los Angeles

Travel Bugs World

With many restaurants reopening recently, this weekend's most fun things to do in Los Angeles are all about food and drinks, with some outdoor shopping for variety.

Many restaurants have suffered financially, and some have had to close completely. So it's a great weekend to show your support while enjoying yourself eating some tantalizing meals.


DineL.A. Restaurant Week

This dining event is in support of L.A.'s hard-hit restaurant community. The event takes place twice a year, and this spring's event, there are dining-in options, take-out options, and home delivery.

The event includes hundreds of restaurants with cuisines that are as diverse as Los Angeles itself.

Restaurants range from affordable and family-friendly options to al fresco dining and some of the fanciest restaurants in Los Angeles, including long-standing favorites like L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele, Poppy & Rose, and Firefly. Also, recent openings such as Brooklyn Ave Pizza C and Adrift Burger Bar are participating.

Special menu options start from $15 for lunch and $25 for dinner, and some restaurants offer multi-course options.

DineL.A is from March 1st to March 14th. You can see each restaurant's menus on the website and make bookings online. More information and a list of participating restaurants are at dineLA.com.

Additionally, you will also find a free code to use on the website for free delivery if you are ordering home delivery.


Knott's Taste of Boysenberry Festival

My pick for this weekend is the Knott's Taste of Boysenberry Festival. This food event offers boysenberry-inspired savories, as well as sweet treats and drinks.

The food and retail event is held outdoors and includes over 80 boysenberry-infused food and drink items.

Guests can choose from delicious boysenberry-infused items, including pizzas, bakery items, grills, and so much more.

On offer are enticing menu items like hot dogs with boysenberry relish, Philly Cheese Fries with a Boysenberry Onion Topping, Berry Salad with a Cilantro Lime Dressing, Boysenberry Flavored Shrimp and Grits, Cheeseburger with a Boysenberry Onion Spread, Tamale with a Boysenberry Roja Sauce over Spanish Rice.

However, I am mostly drooling over and lining up for their Boysenberry Cake with a Boysenberry Cream Cheese Icing.

Then, there are refreshing drinks that you don't usually find anywhere else, like Berry Cider, Boysenberry Cosmopolitan, Boysenberry Sangria, Frozen Boysenberry Margarita, and Champagne and Boysenberry Ice Cream Float.

Additionally, the festival includes boysenberry-inspired merchandise such as event apparel, kitchenware, and handmade and personalized gifts from artisan local crafters.

The festival is on daily starting at noon from March 5th to May 2nd. For more information and advance purchase of tasting cards (required to take part in the event), visit knotts.com.

Please note the theme park remains closed.


THEBlvd Privé at Beverly Wilshire

Treat yourself this weekend to the new pop-up dining experience at Beverly Wilshire. THEBlvd Privé is an extension of THEBlvd Restaurant.

Offering an alfresco setting with a California-inspired menu, the hidden hideaway features stunning decor illuminated by gas lamps imported from a castle in Edinburgh.
