Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…
Guest Artistic Directors and American Ballet Theatre principals Roberto Bolle and Herman Cornejo lead an international ensemble of 19 major dancers from 12 countries performing in three distinctive programs, with many of the dancers performing in Southern California and together for the first time. Don’t miss this next chapter in ballet as each program will feature renowned stars pushing the boundaries of technique and interpretation as they perform contemporary ballet works alongside traditional masterpieces. Opening night will feature stars of Europe, curated by Roberto Bolle; while the second night will feature stars of Latin America, curated by Herman Cornejo. The third and final performance of the engagement will be a combination of the two.

California Hot Sauce Expo
We’ve done our fair share of hot sauce taste testing, but the inaugural California Hot Sauce Expo is taking our taste buds to a whole new level. For two days, Rainbow Lagoon Park in Long Beach will fill with pepper-hungry attendees boasting their ability to withstand even the spiciest offender. Will they make it through 45 hot sauce samples and multiple eating challenges (our favorite: The Guinness Book of Record Smoking Ed’s Carolina Reaper Pepper Eating Challenge)? We’ll find out. Just be glad that there’s beer on hand (though milk wouldn’t hurt, either).
