Before L.A. had a beer fest or a cupcake fest, L.A. had Jonathan Gold. Now the L.A. Weekly is sponsoring the Los Angeles Gold Standard, a tasting event next Sunday from 3-7 at Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood, with restaurants personally selected by the Goldman himself. The list is radically different from most tasting events: restaurants include Gold favorites (and many of our favorites too) like Jitlada, Mr. Baguette, Palate, Lou, Animal, Babita, Loteria and many more. Tickets are $66.50 including ticketing service charge, $10 for kids.
Tip: A few people snagged the discount ones on Goldstar, but they're already sold out for this event. Next time you hear about a food event you're interested in, check Goldstar right away and you might find a deeply-discounted ticket. But think fast -- the Beer Fest discounted tickets are already sold out too.
