|Beautiful Photography from Epicuryan who attended the first Pheast.|
As for me... I'm part-taking in what sounds like a deliciously bad idea the night before Beer Pong, but I can't turn down an invitation to the Pheast, the newest underground supper club to hit the streets. Will post a full review next week!
25th Annual Bug Fair
Saturday & Sunday
In celebration of all things winged and creepy-crawly, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) will host its 25th annual Bug Fair. The biggest bug festival in North America, this insect extravaganza gives visitors hundreds of things to see and do — including live animal presentations, workshops, crafts, bug chef demonstrations, and back by popular demand, cockroach races. Nearly 70 exhibitors fill the Museum’s halls to display and sell thousands of items including live and preserved insect specimens. From books to supplies to insect-related products and art, if it bugs you, it’s here. Natural History Museum | Exposition Park http://www.nhm.org/site/activities-programs/bug-fair
