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:
Kick off Labor Day weekend and celebrate (what's left of) summer at the LA County Fair now through September 28! Meet adorable baby animals at Fairview Farms where Sky Shivers and friends answer all your questions about the barnyard bunnies, chicks, piglets, goats and little lambs. And when you want to walk on the wild side, head over to Mojo's African Safari. That's where you'll find Karla Majewski along with her favorite Capuchin monkey Mojo and more than 50 exotic creatures including camels and zebras. Of course, there's tons of food, music exhibits and entertainment for the whole family, so visit www.lacountyfair.com for all the details.
Giant forks the size of a person! Marie Antoinette's head spinning with cotton candy! Smoking cocktails with chocolate monkeys! Yes, folks, these are just a few of the sensational surprises you'll get at the ?Barton G?, the hottest new restaurant in West Hollywood. Originally opened in Miami, this new culinary import is all about having fun with your food thanks to completely unexpected over-the-top presentations like giant samurai swords with tuna and life-size baseball bat & mitt to accompany your sliders. It's truly dinner as entertainment.
LA-based, Grammy-winning band La Santa Cecilia exemplifies the modern hybrid of Latin culture, rock and world music. The colorful group draws inspiration from all over the world, infusing their music with Pan-American rhythms like cumbia, bossa nova, rumba, rock and klezmer. You can catch one of their vibrant live performances at Levitt Pavilion in MacArthur Park on Saturday, August 30 -- it's free and open to the public!
