Does the very idea of dim sum make you nervous? Not sure what to order, from where, or how to actually eat it all? Let this upcoming Chinatown Dim Sum Crawl do all of the work for you! The Thursday evening event runs from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and offers a curated selection of four restaurants within downtown's historic Chinatown neighborhood. Not only does the cost of admission get you dim sum samples at Empress Pavilion, Mandarin Chateau, Plum Tree Inn and Hop Woo, there will be other finger foods available, plus a selection of local craft beer to pair with the eats. The beer portion is being managed by Eagle Rock Brewery, so expect some of their brews, as well as three different breweries from around Los Angeles.
