Do This Today: Make Music Pasadena


Guess what it’s time for already- Make Music Pasadena! If you like music and saving money, check this event out in Pasadena. It’s FREE- TOTALLY FREE! – and filled with music. It’s a great place to get exercise and people watch and dance. Click the image above to see all the stages and map. There are stages and bands playing all over this route, and check out the shops and restaurants nearby. I’ve gone multiple years and can confidently say it’s a fun time. Plan to park on side streets (avoid Colorado if you’re in a car) and do a lot of walking.

Location: Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA
Time: Saturday June 7, 2014 ALL DAY!

Do This Today: LA Burger Week



This is probably the LAST thing you’d think I’d post about since I don’t eat meat, but since it’s a slow event day and this is a pretty big deal to some people in LA, I have to tell you about it. The Oinkster in Eagle Rock is holding their “Burger Week” this week, which means new crazy burgers each day. The photo above is the Pantera burger. Now sign me up when it’s a wee of veggie burgers! I’m probably the only person to ever say that statement.

Event: LA Burger Week at Oinkster (event link)
Location: Oinkster, 2005 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
Time: Wednesday June 4, 2014 ALL WEEK!
