omance your tastebuds with a trip to the EastSide Food Festival
. A bevvy of local restaurants will be serving up special menu items, covering a wide array of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Yes, it takes place in Silver Lake, which many don’t consider part of the Eastside. But pair the tastings with a restauranteur panel, raffles, book signings and you’ll forgive that. Sunday, November 9.
he power of testimony comes to the street. The North East L.A. Alliance
hopes to spark a conversation on displaced communities through music and spoken word. York Boulevard has changed drastically in the last few years and this procession intends to start at The Parklet on York and march down to Figueroa Street. Saturday, November 8.
he reclamation of the Los Angeles River has been an exciting development. There are so many different groups showing their appreciation to the tranquil side of things. Yoga Riot
is outdoors exercise, breathing, stretching in tune with nature. Don’t ask what you can do for the river, but ask what can the river do for you? Saturday, November 8.
