The Weekend Guide Jan 27 + 28 + 29

Work has been crazy and I’m so behind the times today. I’m going to have to make this quick! I completely apologize and I swear next week I will be more thorough. Let’s get a move on,

FRIDAY Jan. 27:

If you checked out my last “Weekend Guide”, then you know that the Pacific Standard Time Festival is still happening and continuing through this weekend. If you didn’t go last weekend, you get one extra chance- don’t waste it! HERE is the festival calendar. Such good stuff going on all over the city tonight you have to check it out. Tonight Liz Glynn is hosting an event at the Black Box from 8pm-2am. This event is free and no reservations are required (check out the MAP). DJ OJO is doing an interactive set, Lucky Dragons is doing something with a ouiji board, Mecca Andrews is performing as well as a Walead Beshty’s films banned by China. Like them on facebook for more info, HERE.

Saturday Jan 28:

Two weeks ago I told you about Long Beach’s Adventure Expo and this weekend (starting tonight), is the 14th Annual LA Times Travel Show. Lisa Ling, Rick Steves and Arthur Frommer are three of many special guests attending this event. It’s taking place at the L.A. Convention Center, so you have no excuse not to hop on the metro and stop in to the show. Tickets are $10 and you can get them HERE.

As I posted about this past week (HERE), it’s year of the Dragon and as part of the celebration there will be a Golden Dragon Parade on Saturday from 1-4pm. Cupcake Wars will be providing a 1000 cupcakes to people attending the event. So if you are interested in going, or just curious which streets to avoid, check out the map HERE.

At 8pm, for $12 the Steve Allen Theater (which is now calling itself the Trepany House?), is hosting An Evening With Rob Zabrecky. They only have standing room only tkts available, but this sounds like a cool show. This weeks show has musical guests Goodnight Ladies (Liberty Larson + Shayne Eastin).

Sunday Jan 29:

On Sunday check out the LACMA’s new show “In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States”. It opens Jan 29th (Sunday) through May 6th, so you have some time to check it out.

I’m sorry this is so abbreviated, as Im sure there are so many more free cool events happening this weekend. You’ll have to do awesome things and tell me about them. This weekend I’m hoping to use my groupon (as well as cross things off my resolution list) and go rock climbing!
