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:
This edition of the Weekend Roundup is all about helping you keep your New Year's Resolutions to eat better, lose weight and save money! And just in time California Restaurant Month is here to bring good taste and healthy food starting with Santa Monica's inaugural Eat Well Week. Going on from Sunday, January 6 to Saturday, January 13, Santa Monica's top restaurants will be offering discounted pre-fixe menus and healthy menu options that satisfy both your wallet and waistline.
Some of the participating restaurants including Locando del Lago on the Third Street Promenade have even created Popeye inspired dishes. After all, the famous spinach-loving character was born in Santa Monica, so it makes sense he would help kick off this healthy start to 2013.

If you want to lose weight, look great, feel great and have energy to burn then you might want to check out the intimate Ona Spa on Beverly Boulevard. After a detailed exam of your health, habits, background, needs and wants, the specialist at Ona Spa will help unlock the root of your body image issues. She will then create a custom Chinese Herbal and Acupuncture treatment plan, designed to immediately make you start to feel and look better. This treatment promises to boost your metabolism, promote healthy digestion and produce endorphins and dopamine to curb your appetite days after each treatment. This month, you can book a treatment for $120 (regularly $150) with follow-up acupuncture treatments at $90 each.
So you resolved to stick to a budget after all that holiday spending in 2012. But you still want to go out and have a good time, right? No problemo, amigo. Now's your chance to check out Metalachi, the first and only heavy metal mariachi band in the entire world. (Si senor, es true.) These wild and crazy guys are playing a FREE fan appreciation show this Friday, January 4 at the famed Roxy on the Sunset Strip, a venue they've sold out quite a few times. The show starts at 8pm (and there will be special surprise guests), so there's no telling when the party will end. Happy New Year!
