Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Weekend Roundup: Gondola Getaway, Gaucho Grill & The Edison

Posted: Updated:

FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!

Here's more information about the guests we featured:

Gondola Getaway

It's Valentine's Day every day at Gondola Getaway, but it gets extra romantic this time of year. Take your sweetie (or get together with your single friends) for a relaxing, scenic cruise with a gondolier who will take you through the enchanting canals and waterways of Naples Island in Long Beach. The fleet of authentic gondolas, which come directly from Venice, Italy, are the perfect way to experience Old World charm right here in Southern California. They even have group "brunch" and "pizza" cruises for about $40 per person. Excursions available 11am-11pm, 7 days a week.

Gaucho Grill

For a sizzling good time, check out Gaucho Grill in Downtown Long Beach. This casual Argentinian steakhouse is all about delicious food and fabulous wines from boutique Argentinian and California vineyards. Valentine's Day weekend (Feb 13-16) will be even more exciting with a special three-course meal ($39.99 per person) and live entertainment from US and Worldwide Tango Champions Brian & Yulianna who have taken the dance world by storm. Hot stuff!

The Edison

One of LA's most gorgeous and historic bars, The Edison in Downtown LA reigns supreme as the place for guys and dolls to snazz it up, indulge in handcrafted cocktails and summon the spirit of a bygone era. Located in the basement of the 1910 Higgins Building, this sprawling speakeasy has different entertainment nightly and on Valentine's Day weekend (and every Saturday), The Eddies from Bling Divas will whisk you away to a time of exciting cabaret, glamorous flappers and unbridled energy. It's sassy, sexy and always entertaining! Put on your dancing shoes and dress to impress--vintage style is encouraged.
