ACK! Another crazy work day. Okay, fastest weekend guide ever. I’m sorry, but if it’s any consolation, next weekend there are a TON of cool things going on and I can’t wait to tell you about those next Friday. Any who, this weekend comes first. Here it is!
Today is First Friday’s in Venice, which means Abbot Kinney is going to be CRAZY. Go check it out and get something small from every food truck (there will be tons of them). This is one of those very LA events, so if you have guests in town you should go.
My only other Friday night activity, is a new show added to the Upright Citizens Brigade line-up called Set List. Paul F. Tompins, Kumail Nanjiani, Matt Besser and Jake Johannsen are in this improv show. It says online that the show is sold out, but I know they let people in from an extensive waiting list. It should be worth the wait! It’s $10 and starts at 8pm.
SUNDAY MArch 3rd:
From 12-4pm, the Pasadena Museum of Art is having their Art as an Appetizer event (part of Pacific Standard Time event). The food truck roster is Border Grill, Casablanca Truck, Flat Iron Truck, Gourmet Genie, and GO CHEW.
This weekend (and next weekend) Dana Point is celebrating the 41st Annual Dana Point Festival of Whales. There are all sorts of events where you learn about animals, whale watch, even a parade. The video below talks about all that this has to offer. It sounds awesome, and if the weather is beautiful (per usual) you should make a day of it and hit the beach.
SUNDAY March 4th:
If you don’t want to check out the Dana Point Festival of Whales on Sunday, visit the Hammer Museum at 11am for their showing of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This black and white film was made in 1972 and still holds up over time.
From 11am-2pm, join the Silver Lake community for the opening of Sunset Triangle Plaza. Come check out this new outdoor space and get some vitamin d. While you’re there, stop by the independent shops and support locals!
Check out the opening of Umamicatessen this weekend downtown. If you like Umami Burger (which most people do), youll love their new deli/bar experience. It’s garunteed to be packed and delicious.
Okay I’m off. Enjoy!
