May 31-June 1: LA Wine Fest
Head to Raleigh Studios in Hollywood for this two-day wine tasting. There are wines, beers and spirits from California - Temecula to Napa Valley - plus food trucks galore. Seminars, panel discussions and cooking demos on the main stage add to the fun.
Essentials: Two sessions are from 2-6 PM on Saturday, and noon-5 PM on Sunday. One-day tickets are $85 per person or $150 per couple. Designated drivers can go for $25, or just take an Uber (first-time users get $50 off) (5300 Melrose Ave.).
