Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Weekend Roundup: Mariachi USA, Street Food Fest & BET Experience At LA Live

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:

 

Mariachi USA

Pack a picnic and get ready to have a fun night of pure mariachi magic at the 24th Annual Mariachi USA Festival. Taking place on Saturday, June 29 at the Hollywood Bowl, Mariachi USA is a festival where audiences of all cultures and all ages come together to enjoy live dance performances and music from five of the top mariachi groups from the United States and Mexico, including the fabulous Mariachi Estrella de Jalisco.



Street Food Fest

One price = All You Can Eat + Drink. The 4th Annual LA Street Food Fest is back this Saturday, June 29 at the Rose Bowl and it's going to be bigger and better than ever. Expect to sample from more than 100 vendors including my personal faves -- the brand-new Beignet Truck and World Empanadas from Burbank -- plus live music, six bars and a beer garden. General admission tickets $50 (5pm-9pm) and VIP tickets $75 with early entry at 3pm. Oh, and FREE parking for all! Just remember: Pre-sale online only. No tickets at the door.



BET Experience at LA LIVE

You might not be going to the BET Awards this weekend, but everyone's invited to the BET Experience at LA LIVE going all weekend from Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30. The three-day event will be filled with concerts, educational seminars, VIP events and ‘Taste of LA Taste of Soul', a preview of the blockbuster food festival in South LA every October.
To help celebrate we have Le Sassier Catering and Harold & Belle's Restaurant. Good Food Fridays Sip, sample and savor every last Friday of the month from 7pm-10pm at The Market at Santa Monica Place. This monthly event is where you can enjoy FREE music, art, and tastings from local businesses, as well as get 10% off purchases from vendors. This time around there's a pop-up gallery from Kelsey Fish along with goodies from the Pudding Truck, wine tastings from Venokado and fab shopping from the new Ivory Mason Eyewear line -- my personal fave for everything from bamboo-and-black-rimmed reading glasses to retro-chic shades.

Lovez!
