Plus, a drive-through pumpkin patch is coming this fall and a new barbecue joint to add to your must-try list
Time Out #7 | Monday 14 September, 2020
Here’s what you’ll find inside the Hayao Miyazaki retrospective coming to L.A.
We could all use something to look forward to right now, so thankfully the Catbus has arrived with a pretty good pick-me-up: the details of a whimsical exhibition dedicated to Japan’s most celebrated animation legend at a brand-new museum. The Academy Museum, which opens next April, just announced what we can expect in its inaugural exhibition, a Hayao Miyazaki retrospective.
A drive-through pumpkin patch is coming to L.A.
Trick or treating will look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the whole family together for a drive-through experience to get spooky. Coming to Woodland Hills this October, a new Haunt’oween L.A. event promises jack-o’-lantern tunnels, pumpkin picking, family-friendly sights and even a bit of “door-to-door” trick or treating—all socially distanced, of course.
What to do this week
Sat at noon Perfume Genius
See melancholic singer-songwriter Perfume Genius stream a live set (and an acoustic aftershow) from Downtown’s Palace Theater during a benefit for Immigration Equality.
The best of the rest:
Through Fri Try prix-fixe to-go lunch specials and patio dinners on the cheap during the final week of dineL.A.

Wed at 6pm As part of the Natural History Museum’s “Rise Up L.A.” exhibition, listen to a streaming conversation about why women remain underrepresented in government.

What’s new in food?
The 12 best breakfast burritos to start your day (or night) right
Is there a better way to both carb up for the day and eat your feelings than a breakfast burrito? (No.) But finding the most delicious one in a city that loves its breakfast burritos is the true challenge. So we’ve searched L.A. to find the very best spots for a tortilla-wrapped breakfast (or a late-night meal).
Heritage Barbecue brings Texas-style smoked meats—and the art of line culture—to OC
A frosty beer, a foldout chair and a few carefully placed bricks to maintain social distancing: Only one of these things isn’t a typical sign that you’re waiting, Texas-style, for BBQ, but then again the times aren’t typical. At San Juan Capistrano’s phenomenal new barbecue joint, the wait is part of the part—and as much a part of the BBQ experience as brisket, if you know how to wait it out right.
