L.A. Weekender: Wine, beer and Fast Times at Ridgemont High

January 22, 2016

It’s a fairly quiet weekend for us at Fairplex, although things will start picking up with the arrival of the Grand National Roadster Show next week! That being said, we’re ready to relax and enjoy not being snowed in like our friends on the East Coast. Here’s what is going down in L.A. this weekend:
