Weekend Roundup: B Sweet Desserts, Tacos & Tequila and Hairspray

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:

 

B Sweet Desserts

NYC can keep their cronuts. Here in LA, we have CRONOTS! Thanks to B Sweet Desserts and the adorable B Sweet Mobile truck, you can taste what all the fuss is about with this West Coast version of the croissant donut. But beyond that, there is SO MUCH to satisfy your sweet tooth including the already-famous bread pudding in flavors like Banana Chocolate, Red Velvet, Maple Bacon, Peanut Butter Cup and the incredible Glazed Donut! And don't forget the cupcakes in a jar, parfaits and every other sweet creation you can imagine. Look out for B Sweet's bread pudding in stores nationwide within the next 6-8 weeks. Yum!

 

Tacos & Tequila at Morongo Casino

Get ready for an explosively good time at Tacos & Tequila (T&T) at Morongo Casino, Resort and Spa where you can celebrate National Tequila Day for a whole week from July 17-July 24! The popular Mexican restaurant and bar is where you can get tasty tequila flamed prawns ($16) created exclusively for the holiday by corporate executive chef Saul Ortiz. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a T&T Top Shelf Margarita made with Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado, organic agave nectar, Grand Marnier and delicious house-made margarita mix squeezed daily from fresh limes. The drink is just $6. Salud!

 

Hairspray

No matter how many times you've seen "Hairspray" it never gets old. The story follows Tracy Turnblad, a lovable teenager during the 1960s as she dances her way to a spot on a local TV dance show and becomes an overnight celebrity. This latest production from Musical Theatre Orange County celebrates the company's 10th anniversary production with seats priced at just $20! (http://mtoc.org). The show takes place at the Fullerton College Campus Theatre July 26-28 and August 2-4. Now go "Run & Tell That!"
