latimes.com – From a new food festival to chef Nancy Silverton making hot dogs, here’s what’s happening in the L.A. food and drink world:
#treatyourself: Treat Yourself L.A., a new food festival in Santa Monica, is calling itself a “millennial-focused” event. Will there be fried chicken, grilled cheese sandwiches, churros, ice cream, pizza and a dozen other foods that probably made it onto your New Year’s resolution list of stuff to stay away from? Sure. Some of the confirmed vendors include Sprinkles cupcakes, Hot Star (known for fried chicken cutlets the size of your arm), the Kroft, Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken and Pie Hole. The event takes place March 17 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets go on sale Jan. 15 and include all-you-can-eat food samplings and drink tickets. General admission tickets are $75 and VIP tickets are $100. 3021 Airport Ave., Santa Monica, www.treatyourselfla.com
You had me at fried chicken and grilled cheese bruh, I really can’t wait for festival season to kick back up again.
