A Weekend for Coffee Lovers and the Eco-Friendly -- or Perhaps Eco-Friendly Coffee Lovers
Who's the best barista in the West? Intelligentsia Coffee is holding the Western Regional Barista Competition this weekend in downtown.
Competition takes place starting today at 11 a.m. through Sunday. Coffee and espresso will be served through the event -- and the public is welcome.
Details: "Coffee lovers, true believers, under-macchiato’d hopefuls, join us at the Spring Arts Tower, 453 Spring St., (downtown) Los Angeles."
ALSO THIS WEEKEND: The Go Green Expo takes place this weekend, Jan. 23-25, at the L.A. Convention Center. The event showcases eco-friendly products, services and business, as well as interactive presentations and panel discussions in numerous categories.
According to the event, "Among the stars appearing at the Los Angeles event, Ed Begley Jr., renowned actor and a leader in the environmental community, and Academy Award nominee Mariel Hemingway will be speaking to event attendees about how to live a greener life."
Hey, you're already downtown, I'd say, check out both!
