Welcome to The Perfect LA Saturday!
If you aren’t going to Coachella weekend 2 and are looking for something fun to do in LA while Beyoncé lights up the stage in Indio, look no further. This week, we’ll be exploring Highland Park. We’ll be visiting the Los Angeles Police Museum, grabbing vintage sodas from one of the oldest soda pop shops in LA, pairing those sodas with some sugary donuts from a unique donut shop, washing it all down with some beers at Highland Park Brewery, then heading over for some Boozy Snow Cones at Block Party Highland Park.

Los Angeles Police Museum ($9)
6045 York Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90042
A Highland Park based museum that showcases the history of the LAPD and contains evidence from many crimes committed around LA.
Galco’s Old World Grocery ($ Optional)
5702 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Originally an Italian grocery store, Galco’s Old World Grocery has transitioned into a soda pop shop specializing in vintage sodas with over 700 different types of sodas in stock.
Donut Friend ($ Optional)
5107 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90065
While planning this day, I thought to myself, “what would pair well with soda?”. What I came up with was more sugar. Donut friend has a wide selection that offers something for every taste. Donut worry though, if you’re the choosy type, you can create your own donut with a variety of fillings, toppings and glaze.
Highland Park Brewery ($ Optional)
5127 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Local brewery located in the Hermosillo in Highland Park.
Block Party Highland Park ($ Optional)
5052 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
With Boozy snow cones, micheladas, giant shuffleboard tables, and wii games projected on the walls, Block Party Highland Park is supposed to be a blast. Having our own Perfect LA Block Party will be a great way to close out this Perfect LA Saturday.
Block Party Highland Park will be the last official stop for this Perfect LA Saturday. Most likely, we will be continuing the party at an undecided bar in either Highland Park or back towards Downtown LA. If you would like to meet us at this point of the day, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing you all on April 21st and making it The Perfect LA Saturday!
