Yesterday was really rough, but today will be better…. because it’s FRIDAY! Yup, it’s already time for the WEEKEND GUIDE! Just a heads up, I will be in Boston this weekend for a wedding so you need to do ALL the things I post about and tell me how they are. Also, this means I won’t be posting anything new on Saturday or Sunday (but you should be out enjoying the weekend anyway, right?). Also, I must note that I finished writing this post and then my browser crapped out and now Im rewriting this to you all. That’s how much I love you, that I am willing to rewrite ALL of it.
Friday Nov. 18
Lets begin with some corporate deals for the day. Starbucks is offering a 2 for 1 deal on all their holiday drinks (from 2-5pm Nov 17-20) and if you are anything like my sister, this deal is like Christmas morning. See the dets on the deal HERE. Groupon is also doing something called $1 lunch. Check THIS link for places near you participating.
Okay, now on to the really good stuff. Tonight Jason Brockert has an art opening at Iam8but gallery. His work explores pop culture (think Star Wars and Tranformers) through paintings. The opening reception is tonight 7pm-11p at iambit with drinks and a live dj. You can’t miss this free event, and you can RSVP through facebook HERE.
If you don’t like free booze, art gazing and DJ’s (because you’re crazy), then you should check out some cheap comedy at UCB tonight which is offering a double show, Soundtrack (Brian Huskey, Jason Mantzoukas and more) and Death By Roo Roo (with Jackie Clarke, Brett Gelman, Gil Ozeri, Adam Pally and more). Get tickets HERE.
The King King on Hollywood Blvd is hosting Christian Martin, Worthy and Joplin tonight at 9pm and if you get tickets HERE in advance they are $15, or at the door for $20.
Saturday Nov. 19
At noon on Saturday, check out the
Food Fashion Trucks at The Shop Lot LA in Silver Lake. Look for some fashion treasures and then stroll around the neighborhood because it’s awesome. Check the poster to the right for all the dets.
Kate Micucci is hilarious. Check out her video below. She is putting on a one woman show at the Steve Allen Theater on Saturday which is directed by Ron Lynch. The show starts at 8pm and tickets are $10… get them HERE!
LA Venice Cocktail Invitational is happening this weekend ($10 suggested donation). Amatuer mixologists will battle it out to create the perfect cocktail and you get to vote. The winner is announced at midnight and the proceeds go to support the 826LA writing program. You get a fun night, and the money goes to a good cause. Win win!
If you didn’t get tickets to Friday nights show at UCB, alas there are 2 more great shows on Saturday night. The Shit Show (with guest David Wain!) is happening at 10pm and you must go get tickets HERE. Directly after this show is a sold out show called Tournament of Nerds (with guest Pauly Shore). I suggest you put your name on the waiting list, go to The Shit Show, and when you get out hopefully your name will be called and youll get to see both shows for $15. A night of big comedians for $15? Score!
Sunday Nov. 20
The Nerdest panel is back this weekend with very cool people attending. Marti Noxon (Buffy, Glee, Mad Men), Danny Zuker (Modern Family), and Craig Silverstein (Nikita) will be in the discussion. The event starts at 5pm (doors open at 4:30) and it’s held at Meltdown Comics on Sunset. Get tickets HERE!
