Weekend Guide June 8 + 9 +10

FRIDAY June 8th

Do you love Steve Martin as much as I do? Gallery 1988 does, as tonight is the opening of “Excuuuuuse Meeeee” A Tribute to Steve Martin. The reception takes place from 7-10p at their Venice location.

Well if you like Steve Martin… then you probably like comedy. This weekend is the 10th Annual Improv Festival. All weekend, the improv will be rolling. Check out the performer schedule HERE. Get your tickets now!


It’s the second Saturday of the month which means, Silver Lake Craft and Vintage! Are you ready to buy local and eat at yummy food trucks? Check out the neighborhood too, because Silver Lake is really fun. After the fair why not head over to the green on the lake to relax and then do the walk path along the lake.

The Hammer Museum is sponsoring Made in L.A. 2012 all about local artists and performers. Yay LA! At 2pm on Saturday, there will be a public tour of the exhibit at the Hammer museum. Click THIS link for all the details and events happening all over the city, all summer.

I couldn’t let the Weekend Guide go by without telling you about this event. It’s the 10th Annual Bureau of Sanitation Open House. It starts at 9am right by the LA Colosseum. In full disclosure, I won’t be attending (mainly because it’s far away). I’ve been to the Trash Museum in CT and had a blast, so I imagine this event will actually be pretty cool.

If you’re looking for comedy on Saturday night, Towne Hall will be hosting an hour of Maria Bamford. She’s awesome. I own several of her albums and I can’t recommend seeing her more. And it’s only $10! When she goes on tour, it’s going to cost so much more to see her. Enoy it while you can, LA.

And last of all for Saturday, Devils Night Drive-In time! This week it’s Dazed and Confused. Classic. Bring your paddles!

SUNDAY June 7th

This weekend is the LGBT Pride in West Hollywood which equals wild times in WeHo. It’s $20 a day admittance to the event (you can get tickets HERE). Just a warning for people driving in the area, I’m sure many streets will be shut down for the festival.

This weekend is also the Open House at the Jet Propulsion Lab. This rare weekend is upon us! It starts at 9am and goes until 4pm. I’m so excited to nerd out!

Lastly for this packed weekend is the Patchwork Arts + Crafts Festival in the Helms Bakery Plaza from 11-5p. Get ready for CRAFTS! Culver City (specifically around the Helms Bakery) has so many fun things to do. Make a day of it!

Phew- that was a long one! But now you have TONS to do this weekend and no excuses not to get off your butt and get outside.
