Step away from the hot dog and hamburger buns! Something far more interesting awaits you this Memorial Day weekend as Street serves up Korean fare from chefs Susan Feniger and Kajsa Alger at Korean BBQ of Giant Proportions. If you're a Food Network fan and cookbook connoisseur, you'll recognize Feniger's name. First known for her restaurants with Mary Sue Milliken, including Santa Monica's Border Grill, she starred in many an episode of Too Hot Tamales and Tamales World Tour and even penned Mexican Cooking for Dummies. Street was her first venture with Alger as a co-owner, and this weekend the restaurant will team up with Giant Robot (the people behind the West L.A. shop that hosts many a quirky art show) for an evening of delish Korean BBQ, kimchi, cold drinks and more. Relax on the patio while digging into dishes like beef short ribs, washing it down with drinks from the sake lounge — including a summertime sake punch. The event runs most of the day, so bring your appetite and leave behind any dreams of a summer-ready diet. Street, 742 N. Highland Ave, Hlywd.; Sun., May 26, noon-9 p.m.; $35 up to 48 hours before event, $45 at the door. (323) 203-0500,

Sun., May 26, 12-9 p.m., 2013
