What: Los Angeles Times THE TASTE's "Flavors of L.A."
Where: Paramount Studios, Hollywood
When: Saturday, August 31, 2013
Thoughts: THE TASTE is quickly becoming a Los Angeles Labor Day Weekend staple. If you stick around town for the long holiday weekend, it's pretty much the place to be, eat, drink and generally stuff yourself silly. The 2013 fest did not disappoint - this despite the alarmingly high temperatures. Saturday night's Flavors of L.A. hosted by Jonathan Gold and co-hosted by Father's Office/Lukshon's Sang Yoon featured some delicious bites, but rather than bore you with my words, I thought I'd just share the pictures...
