Beer, baseball, hot dogs and garlic fries – what better way to spend a long weekend than getting a group of friends together and heading to Dodger Stadium? Friday through Sunday, watch the Dodgers take on the Padres, or go for the 5:10pm Memorial Day game versus the Phillies. If you want to start the weekend with a bang, Friday’s game will conclude with fireworks to set the tone for the rest of the weekend.
While National Burger Day falls on Monday May 28th, why not start early at Smorgasburg LA’s 2nd annual Burger Day? After a successful popup at Smorgasburg in December, world renowned burger expert George Motz is back for this special event.
