The Tour de Fat, the traveling festival from New Belgium Brewing, rolls through LA on October 23 in a celebration of the most popular velocipede--the bicycle. Teaming up with C.I.C.L.E., the Bicycle Kitchen, and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, the tour promotes advocacy for the pedal-driven cause in a day of biking, beer and bands through Downtown LA. The ride starts at 10:00 a.m. in the L.A. Historic Park. For more information click here.
Also on October 23, Artisanal LA, the weekend food celebration, commences a few blocks away at the Cooper Building. With participants ranging from Gotta Have S'more to The Olive Press, it is truly going to be an epic edible event that will showcase the bounty of local artisanal vendors and craftsmen while benefitting the LAUSD School Gardens Program. Make sure not to miss the very seasonal Growing and Cooking with Artisanal Pumpkins workshop on Saturday and the Biodynamic Wine Pairing demo on Sunday.
