What’s Happening This Week: July 27, 2020

Los Angeles Greater Area

Hit the trails

Around here, it’s a summer rite. When it heats up, there’s nothing quite like a hike with a water feature. From Altadena to Malibu, the LA area is home to some of the most impressive natural waterfalls. Lace up those shoes and head to your trailhead of choice, but before you head out, make sure to wear a mask and choose an alternate hike if it looks too crowded.

Dodger Stadium, delivered

Dodger fans, rejoice! Your favorite Dodger Dogs, asada fries helmets, and micheladas can now be delivered straight to your door courtesy of Postmates. While we can’t attend games any time soon, there’s no reason not to get into the spirit.

Black restaurant week returns

Founded in 2016, Black Restaurant Week returns to LA August 7 to August 16. The “multi-city culinary movement” celebrates Pan-African, African American and Caribbean cuisine. This year’s offerings will include takeout, delivery, outdoor dining, tasting menus and vegan options.

Concerts in Your Car

As Angelenos, we do a lot in our cars. So what’s one more drive-in experience? Concerts in Your Car is a first-of-its-kind socially distanced concert series coming to the Ventura County Fairgrounds. The series promises premier entertainment from the comfort and safety of your own car. Takeout encouraged!


San Francisco Bay Area

Brunch picks in S.F.

It’s of those meals that you don’t really want to make at home. Thankfully, several restaurants in San Francisco are serving up brunch al fresco, including Kitchen Story and its millionaire’s bacon, Zazie and its miracle pancakes, and Blackwood and its deep-fried French toast (yikes!).

Summer in Sonoma

We could all use a little summer break. Rediscover all the wonders that Sonoma County has to offer during the warm weather season courtesy of this list of 40 people, places, and things that make the area awesome in the summer. Yes, please.  

Mt. Tam + Waterfalls = Fun

Don’t go chasing waterfalls? Sorry TLC, we respectfully disagree. Especially considering these three—yes three—gorgeous waterfall hikes that are easily accessible around Marin’s Mt. Tamalpais. Get your Instagram fired up and your yoga poses ready…

Virtual parties done right

Is there anything more depressing than a pandemic birthday? It doesn’t have to be. Here are some great tips on how to throw an entertaining and festive celebration on Zoom. Fair warning: a lot of prep work and excel spreadsheets may be required.
