What's Up Downtown August!

Happy August!  With August comes the prime of summer events in Downtown!  All the summer festivals, summer concerts and special summer events are in full swing.  There is so much to do and so many new places to try.  It is amazing the rate new shops, restaurants and other businesses are popping up, it makes me proud and excited to be a part of this growth period.

Some of the hot things to do this month are:  6th Annual TV Costume Design Exhibit at FIDM Museum & Galleries (FREE, Now - October 20), Hard Summer Music Festival at the State Historical Park (August 3-4, Tickets on sale now), Chinatown Summer Nights in Chinatown (August 11 & 25, FREE), Mary Poppins at the Ahmanson (August 9 - September 2, tickets on sale now), LA Craft Beer Crawl (August 18, tickets on sale now), Race LA (August 18, register today), Grand Performances (now - August 25, FREE), Music Center (now - August 24, FREE), and Pershing Square Summer Performances (now - August 18)

Looking for something with your dog... Sign up today for the Sizzlin' Hot Dogs Pooch Parade!  Not to be basis, but I know for a fact it will be fun, educational and a night your dog and you will be thankful for!  As well as this great event, you should try a walk through the newly open Grand Park!

There are a lot of new restaurants to try.  I am most looking forward to Kitchen Table (Main & 4th),  The Parish (Spring & 9th), and  Towne Food & Drink (9th & Flower).  There are many more to try and I am still trying to get to all the new ones that have opened up in the last few months!

Whatever your plans for August, try to spend some time in Downtown and don't forget your dog!  The Sizzlin' Hot Dogs Pooch Parade is filling up, be sure to get your spot today!

Keep cool and enjoy this beautiful summer!
