11:00 AM PST on March 10, 2022

    Evil Cooks

    We can’t bear the thought of you being bored this weekend. So we’ve put together a new event feature highlighting some of the fun things to do over the next few days in and around Los Angeles. Sadly it appears the promise of a Young M.A./Cannibal Copse gig in Santa Ana appears incorrect. Nonetheless, we still have several other ideas for you to have fun!

      • Thursday, March 10 ~ Santa Monica

    Striving to avoid the chaos that ensued when the KCRW booked Khalid on the Santa Monica Pier a few years back, tonight finds a mellower monthly event starting called "Locals Night." There will be kids activities beginning at 3pm, DJs starting at 5pm, a photo exhibit, and live performance by a band called White Chocolate Martini. Free, 3-10pm, Santa Monica Pier

      • Friday, March 11-13 ~ Boyle Heights

    Mexika New Year is a three-day throwdown at Mariachi Plaza from First Nation Syndicate that celebrates the new year of the Aztec Calendar, with ceremonial danza Azteca, live music, art, workshops, pulque and aguamiel, a vendor market, food, a Native American weapon throwing contest, and much more. Free for all ages, 1831 1st St. Boyle Heights, CA 90033

      • Friday, March 11-12 ~ Koreatown

    As a nod to International Women's Day, Gogo's Tacos is hosting the Cariñoso pop-up from L.A.-raised fine-dining veteran Christina Galtman, who took a break from professional cooking to raise her four children and advocate for mothers of autistic children. This Friday and Saturday, she'll be preparing a $45 menu featuring papa-and-chorizo gnocchi, short rib mole negro with fig relish, shrimp aguachile, a chicken tinga empanada, albondigas, and cinnamon bread pudding with Abuelita chocolate sauce. Reservations here. 3660 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90004

      • Friday, March 11 ~ El Sereno

    Evil Cooks is launching a Friday night special called "Kamikaze," in which diners get all-you-can-eat tacos for an hour from a special menu that include orange chicken tacos, esquite tacos, chile relleno tacos, al pastor kebab, tuna, and milanesa tacos. DM reservations required and rules must be followed.

      • Friday, March 11 ~ Echo Park

    Katbing's Circus, an interactive art gallery by Katbing that features circus performers, opens Friday night to all ages. $10 tickets include one free drink and kids under 12 are free. Clown costumes encouraged. 2111 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles CA, 90026

      • Saturday, March 12 ~ Downtown

    Chef Josef Centeno's restaurants Bar Ama and Orsa & Winston are donating 100% of their profits to humanitarian projects helping people in embattled Ukraine on Friday and Saturday. A chance to have some of L.A.'s best food while helping people in desperate need.

      • Saturday, March 12 ~ Venice

    Seminal SoCal punk legends The Dickies are playing Venice West on Saturday night. And tickets are only $20. So you absolutely can't not go. 8pm, 21+, 1717 Lincoln Blvd. Venice, CA 90291

      • Sunday, March 13 ~ Downtown

    Sunday marks the 5th "Locaversary" of Locatora Radio. A party will go down with Las Mamis of Myth and Bullshit, and Mala Munoz and Diosa Femme, at Resident DTLA, hosted by L.A.
