We already told you that LA Beer Week, the county-wide celebration of America’s favorite sudsy libation, has its hoppy little fingers in the LBC by way of The Factory. And we shall continue our efforts in bringing you, live and on the scene, the most malty of events occurring in Long Beach for LABW. Have we mentioned Brewers Karaoke at Alex’s Bar?
The massive ode to the county’s obsession with hops, yeast, and malt that is LA Beer Week (LABW) kicks off this Saturday. Though there are extraordinarily large events—the kick off celebration in Chinatown or Oktoberfest at Angel City for starters—it is the smaller ones that are far more intriguing.
Foodies and Long Beach residents Erin-Lee and Darren Skilton noticed something amiss in the LBC’s culinary scene: popup dinners. The Skiltons have decided to take their love of Mexico and Long Beach to bring us the inaugural Alta Cocina, a popup dinner in a residential backyard that will act as the kitchen for famed Baja cuisine master Roberto Alcocer.
We at the Post love our odd, idiosyncratic “holidays”—mostly those that involve libations and gastronomy. Today, we honor a classic, a legend, a luminary food that has led both hearts and minds toward late night binges and midday cravings. Ladies, gents, and everyone in between, we give National Cheese Pizza Day—and our fair city is chockfull of it.
