LA Weekly - BOLA Music: Good Eats and Free Beats

Los Angeles, May 16, 2019

Music is infiltrating Los Angeles' burgeoning dining scene at all hours and in all genres. Here's the latest list of where to find great eats and free beats.

There’s no better way to start the week off and get your head straight than a good Sunday jazz brunch. Parlor Social performs every Sunday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., for Soulful Jazz Brunch at MiddleBar in Inglewood. The band is comprised of world-class musicians including Madonna's piano player Ric'key Pageot and Dessy Di Lauro from Cirque du Soleil. The trio is known for bringing in special guest performers, and on any given Sunday you might catch a trumpet, a spoken word poet or even a tap dancer. Typically, there is a $5 support the arts fee to cover the band, but if people bring in their copies of L.A. Weekly, MiddleBar is happy to waive the fee. Brunch items include the farm fresh pan-crepe, seasonal bread pudding, freshly baked bagels topped with whipped cream cheese and house-cured salmon, and the famous MiddleBar Mary. MiddleBar, 129 N. Market St., Inglewood; (323) 454-7577,
