DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Guacamole-inspired beer and inventive takes on fried chicken are on the roster for a pair of recently announced Downtown Los Angeles festivals.
On Aug. 24 from 1-7 p.m., Angel City Brewery will pay homage to the avocado. The brewery at 216 S. Alameda St. will serve a guacamole-inspired beer called Avocado Ale. Food trucks will be on hand including Octopops, which makes avocado popsicles.
There will also be a guacamole contest and live music.
Coming a month later to the Arts District is a fried chicken celebration complete with high-end offerings prepared by some well-known chefs.
The Food GPS Fried Chicken Festival will take place Sept. 15 from 4-7 p.m. at Lot 613 in the Arts District. Those frying up birds will include Downtown chefs Susan Feniger of Border Grill, Bryant Ng of Spice Table and Ricardo Zarate of Mo-Chica.
The event will offer beer from Firestone Walker Brewing Co., ice cream from McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams and desserts from Sugarbloom Bakery.
