Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Weekend Roundup: Gym Crew Challenge, Grilled Cheese Invitational & Desert Daze

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:

 

Gym Crew Challenge

So you think you can dance? It's time for the annual Gym Crew Challenge, the only competition where gym dance instructors are invited to assemble crews of their students (everyone from real housewives to business execs) to battle it out for cash, prizes and bragging rights as the city's best gym crew. Taking place on Saturday, April 20 at The Montalban Theatre in Hollywood, this year's event aims to be bigger and better than ever with guest judges including Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer, last season's pop-locking finalist on "So You Think You Can Dance." (Lovez him!) For more info, visit www.realdanceproductions.com

 

Grilled Cheese Invitational

More cheese, please! There's no better way to pay homage to fromage than at the 11th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational in Downtown LA. Nowhere will you find more hot cheesy goodness -- you can expect dozens of vendors including the Grilled Cheese Truck, cooking demos from event sponsors like Cabot Cheese, costume contests, poetry contests, cheese calling contests, beer and music from the infamous Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine. The fun takes place on Saturday 4/20, the um...unofficial Day of Munchies.

 

Moon Block Party's Desert Daze

Not everyone is heading to Coachella this weekend. There's another all-day music festival in the desert and it's Moon Block Party's Desert Daze! Offering a whole lot of peace, love and psychedelia (and food, art, pop-up shops and camping) this lakeside party at Sunset Ranch Oasis is where you can see Grammy winners Tinariwen all the way from Mali, Africa, plus other bands including Warpaint, Fool's Gold, Chelsea Wolfe, the Entrance Band and today's special guest Blackfeet Braves. Camping passes are still available at www.desertdaze.org and at Amoeba and Origami Vinyl record stores in LA. The party starts at 3pm on Saturday, April 20. See you in the desert!

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
