Everybody Goes to K-town 

@ Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools

Friday, Apr 18 2014
Koreatown, Koreatown - when the lights are low: The KTOWN Night Market is that heady and headstrong manifestation of Asian night markets, which are a part of that cosmopolitan experience falling squarely between the celebratory and the revelatory. More than 100 street vendors will purvey a gustatory experience anchored in Korean cuisine but spanning the Asian continent, to turn on your tastebuds' receptors for umami, which you've heard so much about. There will be DJs and K-pop singers, art exhibits, a K-pop workshop and "Food Truck Alley," which will include three seasons' worth of winners of Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race, plus mainstays such as Jogasaki Sushi Burrito and Cool Haus. Because there's not much better after spicy food than ice cream. Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools, 701 S. Catalina St., Koreatown; Fri., April 18, 4 p.m. to mid.; Sat., April 19, 2 p.m.-mid.; free. ktownnightmarket.com.
Fri., April 18, 4 p.m.; Sat., April 19, 2 p.m., 2014 (Expired: 04/19/14)
