Weekend Roundup: Capriotti's, Taste Of The Nation, Wiener Dog Nationals Movie & The Entrance

Posted: Updated:

FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!

Here's more information about the guests we featured:

 

Capriotti's

Listen up, sandwich lovers! Capriotti's is celebrating their 37th anniversary by giving away The Bobbie--their best-selling sub--for just $1!!! This all-natural roasted turkey sandwich is like Thanksgiving in a bun with cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing and a touch of mayo on a freshly baked roll. Go get yours for just a buck on Thursday, June 13, from 3pm-7pm at ALL of the 12 locations across Southern California. (Bonus tip: Order it with cole slaw and it tastes even better!)

 

Taste of the Nation

Taste of the Nation is your chance to meet & greet some of LA's best chefs and sample their most delicious culinary creations, all while raising money to end childhood hunger. You'll also get to watch a live culinary competition, bid on some incredible silent auction items and taste dishes ranging from crispy tuna tacu-tacu from Food & Wine's "Best New Chef in America" winner Ricardo Zarate to albacore tartare with furikake from A-list chef David LeFevre. It all takes place on Sunday, June 9 from 1pm-4pm at Media Park in Culver City.

 

Wiener Dog Nationals Movie

It's a wiener wonderland with the adorable woofs from the new family movie "Wiener Dog Nationals" starring Morgan Fairchild, Alicia Witt and Jason London. The official premiere isn't until June 18, but you can enjoy a FREE advance screening this Saturday, June 8 at the Special Olympics at Cal State Long Beach. To celebrate, we have a few of the film's stars including canine celebs "Shelly" and "Handshake" and cast members Austin Anderson and Caitlin Carmichael. Tickets to the premiere can be purchased HERE or you can enter to win tickets by following @WDN_movie on Twitter.

 

The Entrance Band

This LA-based psychedelic pop trio has a worldwide underground following and counts music legends among their many fans. Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth has referred to them as the "soundtrack for the new groove" and now you can catch them live during their new residency every Thursday night in June at the Satellite in Silver Lake. Today's performance featured the song "Back In the City" from their new EP "Dans La Tempete" and their new full-length album "Face the Sun" will be out later this year. To get on the $5 discount list for the group's residency, email: theentranceband@gmail.com
