To help you get the most out of your weekend, we've enlisted the live-event expertise of the editors of Thrillist, a daily e-mail newsletter that highlights the best goings-on in 21 cities across the United States. From Dallas beer tastings and Miami food festivals to Seattle book readings and San Francisco obstacle races, Thrillist curates its Friday-Saturday-Sunday listings every seven days in its Playbook section. We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's Thrillist editions.
Los Angeles: Echo Park's classic dive, now refreshed.
Not just what you get when Rob Base's biggest hit is played at a low volume, Little Joy's also the beloved Echo Park dive that was recently given a total upscale-y overhaul, with eight craft beers (Paradise Road Pilsner, Anchor California Lager, etc.) on tap, as well as a brand new oak bar and so-fresh, so-momentarily-clean booths.
Little Joy: 1477 W. Sunset Blvd.; 213-250-3417.
