Vegan Things to Do in L.A. This Weekend: May 17-19

Clear skies and a plethora of pop-ups make this a bonafide LA weekend.

Friday, May 17

 

Vegan Pop-Ups in Highland Park

Highland Park

Friday nights in Highland Park are a walk through vegan wonderland, complete with ice cream slides, horchata rivers, and quesadilla mountains. Okay, that doesn’t entirely make sense, but you get the idea—York St is a site to behold for any plant-based foodie.

 

Vegan Pop-Up and Open Mic

Lemiert Park

Plant-based comfort food, a live DJ, and a chance to tell your story—try out that slam poem or test out some jokes at this local event in Leimert Park.

 

Saturday, May 18

 

Munchies Pop-Up

West Hollywood

Highland Park (Saturday & Sunday)

Just a couple months after opening, Hinterhof is meshing German and American cuisines into one, cohesive eye-popping brunch menu. Some standout items include their Pretzel Bread French Toast and Schnitzel and Waffles, which is akin to a German take on chicken and waffles. If you’re ready for a lavish brunch you’ll never forget, Hinterhof is your weekend destination.
