Our Favorite Time of the Month Has Passed Once Again, But In Case You Missed It the AKKF Team Has Your Back With Coverage of AKFF!
For the past few months AKFF has been a little colder than usual but it won’t stop the crowds from coming down! And can you really blame them? The smell of some of LA’s best food trucks take over the boulevard!
Crowds were still lively as ever! If people weren’t eating they were shopping for adorable Valentine Day cards at Burro or hopping from bar to bar.

I can assure you those eating were very satisfied with their food. I mean, look at all these delicious choices! They’re too good not to eat.
Continue sharing your photos and experience with us, we love hearing what you have to say! Make sure to come back for more events you can attend when AKFF seems too far away!

Venice Sign Lighting
The Annual Venice Sign Lighting is taking place at the intersection of Windward Ave and Pacific Ave starting at 6pm and ending around 9pm. There are booths from local businesses, live music and festivities happening with the main event around 8pm. That’s the sign lighting where the Venice sign changes to red and green Christmas colors!

This is another annual event that thousands attend with the majority of shops open on Montana Ave in Santa Monica, spanning 10th to 17th streets.

How about a weekend getaway?
If so, check out Venice Artist Jeremy Kidd’s art in the Palm Springs area at Imago Gallery. Jeremy’s work is super large scale photography that’s culled from his hundreds of photos he takes of desert and urban landscapes seen in a sculptural form. You really have to see it, as words can’t describe his art adequately. The gallery is near El Paseo, the Abbot Kinney Bl of Palm Desert, with shops, restaurants and numerous art galleries.
Imago Galleries 45-450 CA-74, Palm Desert, CA 92260 Tues – Sat 11am – 5pm

Heading down to Abbot Kinney to enjoy some quick and tasty eats? Take our word for it and try one, two, or all five of our AKFF favorites. First Fridays is July 3, 2015!
1. Kogi BBQ
Ever wonder what would happen if a Mexican Food Truck and Korean Food Truck had a baby? If the curiosity is killing you, try Kogi BBQ. Often spotted in the parking lot of The Brig, the famous Korean taco truck draws attention from every street corner. Fan favorite? Spicy pork burrito. Wet. This hunk of spice and savory will send you right back in line.
2. South Philly Experience
This food truck is literally dripping with South Philly flavor in the heart of Venice. Choose your cheesesteak “wit” or “witout” onions. Our advice? Buffalo Steak “wit.” Every time. Go the full nine yards and order a side of fries topped with crabmeat.
3. The Grilled Cheese Truck
Take a break from your juice cleanse and indulge in cheesy goodness. If you’re looking for a combination of comfort-food and sassy fusions, the grilled cheese truck may be your foodie soulmate. Keep it classic with a plain and simple with a cup of tomato soup. Craving sophistication? Try the cheesy mac: fully loaded. Nothing says posh like BBQ pork and caramelized onions drowning in sharp cheddar.
4. Angie’s Wieners
These are no basic hot dogs with a side of ketchup. Angie’s Wiener’s is a force to be reckoned with and well-worth fighting tooth and nail to get your order in. Once you get to the front of the line… Lights. Camera. Action! Nothing makes you feel like a Hollywood superstar like Angie’s menu. Choose from “The Producer,” “The Director,” “The Diva,” and many more.
Grow some bowls and try this delicious and nutritious gem at AKFF. Amazebowls is a diamond in the rough for all you trendy health nuts. What more could you ask for? Bright acai paired with crunchy granola and an assortment of fruits will leave you satisfied and guilt-free.
