Eating Liberally – June 2007 Edition

EATING LIBERALLY — JUNE 2007 EDITION….Just a reminder: our impromptu Los Angeles get-together at the Farmer’s Market is still on. If you’re an LA blogger, commenter, or reader, feel free to drop by. Here are the details:

Where: Farmer’s Market, 3rd and Fairfax (directions here)
Meeting Place: The upstairs seating area above Magee’s Kitchen
When: Sunday at noon

Feel free to come early, come late, stay as long as you want, and leave whenever you need to. Everyone is welcome.

You’re on your own for food. Just grab something you like and then come upstairs. I’ll be getting barbecue from my usual place, but there are plenty of other places to choose from. A directory is here.

Parking note for those not familiar with the Farmer’s Market: there’s an outdoor parking lot next to the Farmer’s Market, but it’s usually full. However, an outdoor mall called The Grove is attached to the Farmer’s Market on the east, and it has an enormous parking structure that doesn’t fill up until late afternoon (map here). The Farmer’s Market merchants won’t validate parking tickets from the structure, but it’s free for the first hour and only a couple of bucks for two additional hours. Your best bet is to park there and then follow the trolley tracks to the Farmer’s Market. It’s only a hundred yards or so.
