Eat and Drink Your Way Through Carmageddon II

Carmageddon for three? Right this way.
Well, it's upon us again. Not the weekend - we love those. But another Carmageddon, when the 405 closes down between the 101 and 10 freeways starting some time around 7 PM tonight lasting through Sunday. And did we hear there's a triathalon this weekend, too? Oof.

As we all remember, Carmageddon I was one of the most brilliant times to travel the roads of LA since everyone stayed off of them. We're hoping Carmageddon II isn't the little boy who cried wolf with everyone ignoring all of the warnings. Yuck. But it does create the perfect time to explore your own neighborhood, bike around or take the Metro, and there are a slew of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues offering deals all over town, which is even more incentive to get out. Carmageddon never tasted sweeter.

The city really wants you to take the Metro, and anyone with a TAP card will find cool deals from Pasadena to Downtown to the South Bay. Get free fries or tater tots at the Dog Haus and Dog Haus Biergarten, a discount off of your bill at Casey's Irish Bar & Grille, 10% off food at Far Bar, and even $1 off of admission for The Feast of San Gennaro, which is just across from the Red Line's Hollywood & Highland stop. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Check out the full list here.

A few more food deals: At Malo and Mas Malo, get the Taco 405, a puffy carnitas taco, for $4.05 on Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM-5 PM. Studio City's PizzaRev has half-off dessert pizzas (we didn't try that yet), and Beachy Cream will offer 20% off any scoop, sundae or ice cream sandwich. Keeping it local, any Culver City, Cheviot Hills, Beverlywood and Palms resident can show your ID to receive 10% off your bill at Ford's Filling Station.

For boozers (hey, you're not driving!), Santa Monica's Stella Rossa Pizza Bar will have $4.05 sangrias, Birra Moretti and Peroni all day on Saturday and Sunday, and The Misfit will have $4.05 white sangria both days. Susan Feniger's STREET will have Carbombs for $4.05. Know of more deals? Please let us know in the comments. Everyone loves a bargain!

  1. Hi. My name is Jesse Glucksman and this is my photo. LAist does not have rights to it, and do not deserve credit. I'm perfectly happy for them, Zagat and anyone else to use it, but I insist that I get proper credit. Please add my name in place of LAist.

  3. Perhaps you often see in the movies this scene: in a house full of stylish home decors, a beautiful woman who gets up early in the morning or after bathing, casual wear T-shirts, nightgowns, or her husband's white shirt, drinking coffee and relaxing on the couch watching TV. Today, this nightdress with nothing to wear inside loaded becomes very popular among young women, which looks both charm and comfort.

    However, the gynecologists feel quite worried. This "hollow" installed has a high demand on home health condition, otherwise easily causing vaginal inflammation. The doctor pointed out, when you stay at home; the house is unlike the operating room, which is impossible to be aseptic. There will be a lot of bacteria on sofa, chairs, and even in bed. Especially if you are hospitable host, the sofa sets can’t change each visit as soon as possible, so it will inevitably become gathering places for bacteria. When you bath, cool with lower body sitting on the sofa, the bacteria will swoop in to cause gynecological inflammation.If there be one of the couple who has athlete's foot or other skin diseases, this approximation streaking wearing, but also will make you vulnerable to intrusion of vaginitis. So you had better wear panties even if the string thong panties may help you keep the virus away.

    Many female gynecological inflammations are inadvertently infected, especially in the summer and early autumn, when the climate is hot and humid, susceptible to fungal vaginitis, if even do not wear underwear, and that is worse. Therefore, women at home neglect to wear underwear for cool, sexy. Only in gynecological inflammation need to take dry treatment, clean bedding appropriate to not wear underwear, legs separate for ventilation, as well as using infrared light.In early autumn, which is a hot and humid season, in order to prevent of vaginitis, try not to be "hollow". When we go out, we should not wear tight-fitting underwear and poor permeability jeans at home with g string thong panties. In fact, the white cotton panty is the best choice. But if you think the style is too monotonous, you can choose cotton lace panties or pink panty according to your interest in the sake of health. In addition, long-term use of antibiotics to pay attention to the ground examination may exclude gynecological inflammation. Also avoid eating spicy, stimulating diet, in order to avoid the flora imbalance, which may lead to inflammation.Some women excessive cleaning can also cause genital flora. It once daily cleaning vulva normal circumstances, preferably with water, do not use any washing night, which does not apply must be under the guidance of a doctor medication must not blindly take measures.
