Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

West LA Animal Fair, Rock & Reilly's Irish Pub and Rebelution

Posted: Updated:

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:

VCA West LA Animal Fair & Open House

Who let the dogs out?! The brand-new VCA Animal Hospital in West LA did, that's who! This new 42,000-square-foot space is the largest animal hospital in the western United States and to celebrate they're inviting everyone to a fun-filled, pet-focused day of activities on Saturday, March 16 from 12pm to 6pm. There will be tours, expert speakers and plenty of cool animals like the agility pets from Animal Encounters, volunteer search dog teams from California Rescue Dog Association and LAPD K-9 Unit, plus exotic animals from STAR Eco Station Wildlife Rescue Center. And don't forget the complimentary refreshments, food trucks and fun activities for children including temporary tattoo art, balloon designers and face painters.


Rock & Reilly's Irish Pub

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Time to have a pint and grab some corned beef sliders (or Irish nachos) at Rock & Reilly's Irish Pub on the Sunset Strip. Like last year, this rollicking bar and restaurant will transform their back parking lot into an outdoor festival with 14 bars, food trucks, DJs, celebrity guest bartenders, a photo booth, games and more. Just remember: The party goes on the day before St. Patty's Day on Saturday, March 16 from noon to 10pm. (Trust me - you'll be glad you partied on Saturday, not Sunday.) Presale tickets are $15 or $20 at the door. Best of all, R&R is donating 15% of the proceeds from the party to Pencils of Promise, a charity that aims to give every child access to quality education.

 

Rebelution

Say you want a revolution? Well, you know ... world rock and reggae band Rebelution is doing their part with their laidback sound that breezes in like a cool wind from their native Santa Barbara. Rebelution released their first full-length album "Courage to Grow" in June 2007, followed by 2009's "Bright Side of Life" which took the #1 spot on iTunes in the reggae music genre, the #3 spot for top albums downloaded in the United States in all music genres, and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart. Last year the band released their third studio album, "Peace Of Mind," which debuted at #1 on the Independent and Reggae charts. You can catch the band here in SoCal this Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15 at the Majestic Ventura Theatre.
