Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Weekend Roundup: WeHo Pickup Trolley, LA Tacos and US Air Guitar

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:


LA Taco Festival

It's taco time! The 2013 LA Taco Festival returns to Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights on Saturday, August 17 with the tastiest taco vendors that Boyle Heights and East LA have to offer. Admission is free to the daylong event (12pm-8pm) with dozens of featured restaurants including Candela Taco Bar and Un Solo Sol Kitchen, plus music and art. A portion of all taco sales are donated to Jovenes, Inc., a local nonprofit organization empowering youth to succeed.


US Air Guitar

Get ready for an awesome show that will blow your mind and shred your soul! (In the best way possible, of course.) The US Air Guitar national finals are shredding their way to Los Angeles with some of the best air guitarists in the country ready to compete including the incredible Six String General and Cold Steel Renegade. The winner will head to Finland later this year to represent the US at the world championships. The face melting begins at 8pm on Saturday, August 17, at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip. Enter at your own risk.


Alexandra Starlight Band

She's got the moves like Jagger and the swagger of a thousand men. Alexandra Starlight (or Alexandra & the Starlight Band) is a rising rock & soul group that's been wowing crowds across the country with catchy, funked-up neo-soul and a whole lotta love. You can catch this LA-based band at Deer Lodge in Ojai on Saturday, August 17 and at Silverlake Lounge on Saturday, August 24 performing with Zachary James & The All Seeing Eyes. See you there!
