Good Taste

Here's this week's round-up of Eastside food and drink news.

East L.A.: Times have changed. Decades ago no one could have imagined an event that combines lowriders, coffee and McDonald's (????). But on May 25, classic car enthusiasts will take part in a show and coffee tasting at the McDonald’s at 5545 Whittier Boulevard to mark the launch of cold brew coffee at the fast-food chain. The event begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
