Eat This, Drink This, Do This: LA's Weekend Planner

Crawfish boil!
Eat This
Grilled cheese sandwiches and ice cream sandwiches = dinner of champions. On Saturday (June 30) Fonuts teams up with the Grilled Cheese Truck for a full-on sandwich fest at the bakery from 6 to 9 PM. This is your chance to try the new Fonuts ice cream sandwiches, and score a mac-and-cheese melt while you're at it. There will be a special collaborative effort between the two, too: A grilled brioche and creme fraiche ice cream sandwich with fresh market fruit. (8104 W. 3rd St.; 323-592-3075)

Drink This
Beer geek alert: Steingarten has a lineup of special Firestone Brewing beers on Friday (July 29), all for only $5 a pint. Taste your way through Parabola 2012, Firestone XV anniversary ale, barrel-aged Velvet Merkin, Sucuba barley wine, Solace American wheat and Pale 31. You get to keep the glass to add to that already over-crowded pint glass collection you pretend you don't have. (10543 W. Pico Blvd.; 310-441-0441)

Do This
Who needs a trip to the Bayou when you have Harold & Belle's? Get your fill of gumbo, jumbalaya, fried catfish, crawfish etouffee and boiled crawfish at the classic summer block party. Cost is $30 for all you can eat (free for children under 10 before 2 PM). Get tickets here. Some proceeds go to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. (2920 W. Jefferson Boulevard; 323-735-9023)
