FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!
Here's more information about the guests we featured:
SPECTRUM ATHLETIC CLUBS
Let's face it: You ate way too much on Thanksgiving (as you knew you would) and you still have a full holiday season of non-stop eating and drinking on the horizon. So this is what you're going to do: Check out Spectrum Athletic Clubs where you can burn calories ... and do it with a smile on your face. This weekend Spectrum is offering their popular Afro Brazilian Beats classes for free, so you have nothing to lose other than that dreaded holiday weight gain. Consider it a head start on your New Year's resolutions.
FOR THE RECORD: JOHN HUGHES (HOLIDAY ROAD)
If you grew up watching all those John Hughes movies like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone and Christmas Vacation, then you are going to love For The Record: John Hughes (Holiday Road). Performed by Broadway and Hollywood singers in the 360-degree dining and concert space at Rockwell in Los Feliz, this interactive show is your chance to sing along to the ultimate 80s soundtrack with a few holiday favorites thrown in for good measure. The show begins Thursday, December 6 and runs until Sunday, December 30. Weekly performances are Thursday-Sunday at 8pm.
