Tuesday, October 25th – Los Angeles Times Bite Nite: Last year, the Times moved restaurant critic Jonathan Gold’s 101 Best Restaurants list from a May release date to early November. However, the annual celebration/launch party for said list, known as Bite Nite, still took place earlier in the year, while a separate party was held in the fall to commemorate the 2015 list. This year, Bite Nite is back to to launch the 2016 list with a line-up of restaurants that one presumes will (and should) be on the new 101 Best Restaurants list: Baroo, Guerrilla Tacos, Jitlada, Night+Market Song, Rustic Canyon, Taco Maria, and more! Tickets are $125 for a chance to mingle with the Belly of Los Angeles and enjoy some incredible food.
Events to look for in November and December: Baby2Baby (Nov. 12th), Sips & Sweets (Dec. 2nd), and I’m sure there’s many more! Let me know if I’ve missed any other major events happening between now and the end of the year!
