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:


Eat See Hear Outdoor Movies

It's time to get outdoors for the Eat See Hear summer movie, food truck and music series! Taking place at venues across LA every Saturday night through September 13, the outdoor event offers fun for the whole family (including pets!) with the largest outdoor movie screen on the West Coast, live music performances and gourmet food trucks including Coolhaus Ice Cream and Potato Tornado. Just bring your blanket, lawn chairs and get ready to have a good time under the stars. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles. Tickets are $10 in advance HERE or $12 at the door.


Salsa Congress

So you think you can dance? Even if you can't, you'll definitely be dazzled by the fast, fierce and fabulous footwork of dancers from around the world at the 16th Annual International LA Salsa Congress. Going on Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-26) at the Westin Bonaventure in Downtown LA, this yearly celebration and competition is your passport to experience an exciting week of music, dancing, parties, workshops and incredible talent from more than 40 countries including Colombia Imperio Juvenil and incredible Colombian gold medalists Jefferson & Adrianita who have been on our show for the past three years!
