Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Weekend Roundup: 4th Of July Special With Transformers, RV's, Olive & Thyme and High Street Band

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:

 

Transformers at Universal Studios

It's a "Summer of Survival" at Universal Studios Hollywood with the all-new, larger-than-life talking Transformers characters Megatron and Optimus Prime. It's your chance to experience one of the theme park‟s most intense, most explosive and most threatening thrill rides: "Transformers: The Ride-3D." Immerse yourself in the action-packed robotic world of the Transformers ride then come face-to-face and interact with these 12-foot behemoths as they walk around Universal Studios. Even better, you can purchase a "Buy A Day Get 2013 Free" ticket to Universal Studios Hollywood for the price of a single day, general admission and enjoy repeated visits all summer long to speak with Megatron and Optimus Prime!



Go RVing.com

Summertime is here and that means it's time to hit the road! The best way to get started is by visiting GoRVing.com, your one-stop-site that has everything to help you create the perfect trip and find your closest local providers like McMahon's here in SoCal. Did you know that In less than an hour, you can be on the beach in Malibu and camp overnight at Malibu Beach RV Park? Or if you're intimidated by driving an RV, you can simply drive your own car up to Flying Flags RV Resort near Solvang and when you get there, a vintage Airstream trailer will be waiting for you?? (Great for a girl's trip!) And if you want to experience camping without the "camp" you can check out the fully furnished park models at the Ventura Ranch KOA in Santa Paula, just an hour north of LA. These are just a few examples, so be sure to check out www.GoRVing.com for more ideas on great places to camp in Southern California and beyond.



Olive & Thyme

If you want to create the perfect picnic, leave it to the pros at Olive & Thyme in Burbank. Owner and chef Melina Davies has famous fans like Robert Redford and Josh Duhamel who flock to her popular cafe and marketplace, but everyone gets star treatment with her A-list picnic baskets that can be customized for that romantic night out, family beach day or any other occasion. (They can also be tailored to whatever dietary needs you have from gluten-free to vegan.) Olive & Thyme is located just a few blocks away from the Starlight Bowl, which makes it super convenient if you're heading there for the Fourth of July or other events. Just call 24 hours in advance.

 

High Street Band

For a good time, call the High Street Band! This wild and crazy group of colorful zoot-suited guys know how to bring the party and they'll be bringing it big-time at the Starlight Bowl music & fireworks extravaganza in Burbank this Fourth of July. Although the band's members live in different parts of the country, you can always expect them to be in sync as they perform hits from the Great American Songbook. Tickets start at $12.00
