Chinatown Summer Nights
What: This isn’t your nana’s block party. Watch traditional Chinese cooking demos, view large-scale outdoor video projections, get schooled in calligraphy, munch on dogs from Let’s Be Frank, and groove to KCRW DJs.
Why: This week’s theme is prosperity. Since gifts of dance are innumerable, join Ballroom Madness for tutorials in the waltz, fox-trot, and tango.
When: Thru Aug. 28. Every Sat., 5 p.m.-midnight.
Where: Chinatown Central Plaza, 933 N. Broadway, at Bamboo Way, Chinatown (213-365-0605). Admission is free
