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:
Greenspan's Grilled Cheese
April is National Grilled Cheese Month and just in time to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day (Saturday, April 12), Greenspan's Grilled Cheese on Melrose is opening with all the ooey gooey cheesy goodness you can handle! Chef Eric Greenspan's new restaurant is where you can get everything from The Champ (his famously winning sammie) to Buffalo Blue (rye bread, blue cheese, spicy carrot-celery slaw, fried chicken tenders) as well as salads, desserts and housemade craft sodas like green apple ginger, pineapple cassis and blood orange creamsicle.
Coffee Bean's Tea Granita Truck
Did somebody say FREE?! The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is rolling out their new Tea Granita Truck, which will be roving the streets of LA to give free samples of their new Tea Granita, an iced tea blended beverage with delicious fruit flavors like caffeine-free Pear Berry and Passion Fruit. You can catch the Tea Granita Truck on Thursday, April 10 at Amoeba Records from 6pm-8pm and Saturday, April 12 at Scratch Academy (11am) and in Santa Monica from 12pm-2pm.
The UK's #1 jazz and swing band are back in the States (and once again on Good Day LA!) to get you jumping, jiving and wailing with their fun, high-energy performances. You can catch this six-piece band on Friday, April 11 at Cicada Club in Downtown LA and Saturday, April 12 at Yeah Man Swing Club in Ventura before they head to Las Vegas for Viva Las Vegas, the biggest 50s rock & roll show in the USA.
