A Jug of Wine (and Thou?)
A glass of wine goes well with many things: food, heartbreak, good company and, most of all -- more wine. Test your love for the glorious liquid at LAWineFest, a two-day event with wine, food trucks, craft brews and more. Expect L.A.'s usual roster of hipsters and foodies, along with oenophiles old and new. Between sips, boost your knowledge about everything from wine-and-cheese pairings to what it takes to own a winery, straight from California winemakers. Each year wine lovers can learn about significant wine locales -- this year it's the Rioja region in Spain. Saturdays fill up more quickly, but either day you will get the most out of the festival if you park yourself right outside the gates before they open: You know you want first dibs on everything.
