It’s the buddy cop drama you’ve been waiting for. He’s a tough dumpling with a dark past and his partner is a beach cruiser who plays by his own rules. Together they’re Steams & Spokes and they’re cleaning house. That probably won’t be a real movie, but this Saturday is the Dim Sum Ride with Flying Pigeon. Ride your bike from Cypress Park to Chinatown via Elysian Valley and eat dumplings. It’s simple enough, with a few stops along the way at Clockshop, Women’s Center for Creative Work and Good Eggs. Saturday, June 6 at 10:30 a.m.

Maybe your grandma isn’t cool with you listening to all those folk singers getting all earthy with their lyrics. Instead of pulling a Ferris Bueller and planting a mannequin in your bed to fool your grandma, why not take her to The Market HP this Saturday for some good music? Hi Ho Silver Oh, Bat Manors, Sacred Destinies and Devon Rex will be playing an intimate concert, hosted by Rafael Bustamante. Grandmas of all ages welcome. Saturday, June 6 at The Market HP.

The folks over in Eagle Rock want their own slice of that sweet, sweet art walk pie. They’ll be hosting a few friends this Saturday with live music at Double O Salon, and, over at O&M Leather, Oscar Morales will be showcasing his artwork and photos. Leanna Lin’s Wonderland has the SoCal Exposure photo exhibit, and several other shops will be participating in the hoopla. Tacos and discounts will be in the mix. Saturday, June 6 and the fun should start around 7 p.m.
Without starting a fight everyone can agree that Boyle Heights has changed plenty in the last several decades. Extera Public Schools would like to walk through those changes with their Boyle Heights History Hike. The two-mile hike will start at 9 a.m. at Mariachi Plaza and explore the neighborhood’s past, present and future through the children’s artwork. Post-hike festivities begin at Mariachi Plaza at noon.
This time around Lummis Day Festival will be a three-day weekend affair. Festivities will begin Friday at Mariachi Plaza with music and poetry. On Saturday the party will swing over to the Southwest Museum, York Park at Avenue 50 and Sunday will be a huge blowout at Sycamore Grove Park with music, food and plenty of people doing their best Huell Howser impression. Lummis Home will also host music and arts. Friday, Saturday and Sun, June 5-7.
