This week offers a bit of something for everyone, including some LA firsts. Attend a poetry reading at the first LA Lit Crawl, sip some local craft beers at the first Flight Night focused exclusively on brewskies, or chow down at a Srirachi themed festival, the first of its kind. For the rest of the week, take in a game, welcome the return of an Argentinean favorite, or get your country groove on under the stars one last time at the Hollywood Bowl.
