Weekend Docket: 7/13/12

For the few of you who aren't already on trains headed down to San Diego for the weekend, there are some awesome events going on in the city this weekend.  Sadly for me, I'll be missing the Bon Appetit Grub Crawl and $2 oysters.  Le sigh...  but then again I did just buy an impromptu ticket to New York so I can certainly nom on some Maison Premiere Oysters next week.  Don't worry, I'll post photos to make you all extremely jealous. 

But enough about me, what are you all doing this weekend?? I want to hear all about your weekend plans too! Leave em in the comments below :).  And as always... if you want to connect, you can follow me on twitter @nicolemiizuka or find me on Facebook!

All Weekend
Bon Appetit Grub Crawl
July 13th - 15th
Bon Appétit Grub Crawl takes you on an interactive food tour at the intersection of fame, fortune, and flavor. Savor food and drink up-close, hang with the most influential chefs, get your hands dirty, roll up your sleeves, and go behind the scenes of the kitchen—with the chefs—to see where the magic happens. If that's not enough, on Saturday it culminates in can't-miss music performances hotter than a starlet on Rodeo Drive. Totally my type of crawl tickets range from $29 - $199.

Venice Boardwalk Biennial and ForYourArt
July 13th - 15th
In conjunction with Made in L.A. 2012, the Venice Beach Biennial, organized by Hammer curator Ali Subotnick, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ‘real’ Venice Biennale in Italy and will take place July 13-15 on the Venice Beach boardwalk. This outdoor exhibition will see somewhere between 30 and 40 participating artists set up vending stands alongside the boardwalk’s usual vendors and present new bodies of work, displaying site-specific sculptures and installations, presenting live performances and even collaborating with the boardwalk’s veteran artists. The Venice Beach Biennial will take place along Ocean Front Walk between 19th Avenue and Rose Avenue. Ocean Front Walk is a pedestrian Boardwalk located parallel to the ocean.

UniqueLA Summer Show
July 14th & 15th
The largest independent design show in the country, attendees get the rare chance to meet and shop directly from over 325 hand-selected designers and artists. The exciting two-day shopping event makes it easy for you to buy local and support LA’s economy, discover great design and deals, join in community, and have a blast.

Oyster Fest at Bouchon
July 14th
Bastille Day.  It's a very important holiday.  For lots of reasons.  But this is one we can certainly get behind!  Who doesn't love cheap oysters, and in lieu of flying to New York and camping out at Maison Premiere for happy hour, this is a close second.  $2 oysters available all day long and anywhere in the Bouchon family of restaurants.   Bouchon Bistro, 235 N Canon Dr, Beverly Hills

Taste of Summer for the Fulfillment Fund

We're throwing out first ever Food & Wine fundraiser a the end of July and I would love to extend an invitation!
