Weekend Guide: July 19 + 20 + 21

Happy Weekend Everyone! Are you staying in town or heading south to Comic-Con this weekend? For people staying in LA there are still fun things to do this weekend (and hopefully less traffic than last weekend). Lets get to it!

FRIDAY

Push_Known_SIMPLE_Mobile_Game_Changer

Tonight, Friday July 19th head to the Known Gallery on Fairfax in West Hollywood to see this Push exhibit.

“As a part of the Game Changer series, SIMPLE Mobile told Push they wanted to give him a chance to do something he always wanted to do with his art, without restriction. Push’s first choice was a to do a three-dimensional installation piece that stretched his skills and the ideas of what people thought of when it came to graffiti and street artists in Los Angeles. ”

It’s opening reception is from 8-11pm tonight and it’s free! If you can’t catch it tonight, it’s running through the weekend.

It’s also DineLA Restaurant Week! Check HERE for full listings and details. Maybe you could eat out at an amazing restaurant at a reduced price and then hit-up the Push opening exhibit? That would be so LA of you.

Tonight if you’re looking for an outdoor movie, check it Friday Night Flicks: Thelma and Louise in Pershing Square. Bring a picnic and low lawn chairs (no alcohol or smoking allowed). It starts at 8:30p, so why not get there early, head to Perch for a cocktail on the roof and then stake your spot for the movie.

SATURDAY
