It’s Friday! ‘Bout time, am I right?! Well it’s that lovely time in the week where I give you some glorious options to fill up your weekend with awesomeness. And as always, if there’s something fun that you know about that I didn’t include, TELL US! If something cool is going on, I wanna know about it!
Friday Oct. 21:
Start your Friday off right with 50% off lunch at Henry’s Hat. Say the phrase “bottomless lunch” to the waiter and they’ll cut back 50% on the bill. This deal only works for lunch, but Henry’s Hat always has good prices anyway. I went there this past Sunday for a birthday brunch gathering and it worked out great even with a large group.
I would suggest you spend your Friday night exploring some of the scary events LA has to offer. Check out my previous post about Scary events around LA HERE. If you’re not in the mood for something scary, check out the rest of Beer Week! Or rest up, because there is SO much to do on Saturday.
Saturday Oct. 22:
Get up early because the “House of Davids”, as it’s known around town, is having an estate sale open to the public! What a rare opportunity to own part of LA history! Get there early because you know it’ll be crowded with antique dealers. Check out the details HERE.
After you pick out a David statue to take home, head over to the Hammer Museum to witness the UCLA Art History Grad Symposium at 10am.
Saturday also happens to be Make A Difference Day! It’s time to give something back. Check the link to their website and you can even get the volunteer app. Do something awesome and post about it here. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, help the community and try a new activity. Win. Win. Win.
At 7pm and 9pm the Moving Arts Center is hosting an event with Kimberly Jordan and Mosaicwonderland. After the performance stop by the Mosaicwonderland Gallery next door. The performance is $5 as suggested donation. It’s all about wine, art, and theater in Silverlake!
Once you have satisfied your culture needs for the weekend, check out the Pancake & Booze Art Show and the Zombie Fashion Show! I went to a show here once and it was awesome. Even the warehouse district it’s located in has great street art. Worth a visit.
Sunday Oct. 23:
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the conclusion of LA’s Beer Week is on Sunday at Union Station. Tickets are pricy, but if you’re a beer enthusiast, it’ll be quite a showing. It’s also at a train station, which means you can hop on a metro home. Everyone can taste test.
Sunday night at 5pm the Independent Shakespeare Company is advertising $20 tickets to Blithe Spirit (there will be martinis). “One night only: a staged reading of the Noel Coward comedy about a man haunted by the ghost of his first wife.” This is a nice way to fill out the weekend.
Now go out and enjoy! I’ll be in Milwaukee for that wedding, which is a story I promise I will tell you about, so you need to tell me all about these events! Have a great weekend!
