Typically I would post a Weekend Guide on Fridays, but if you’ve been following for the last couple months, you know I haven’t been able to do it since starting back at my work. It pains me not to do that posting every week, and until I can give you a full Weekend Guide again, I’m going to give you a “Do This Today” on Fridays.

On that note, today’s “Do This Today” is a comedy show featuring Marc Maron, Dana Gould, Jarrod Carmicheal and more. Tickets are $8 online ($12 at the door or $10 with a donation) and you get a night of comedy at the Lyric Hyperion Theater. Plus this is a benefit so you can feel good about your donation. Click HERE to learn more about the event.

Event: End of the World (event link)
Location: Lyric Hyperion Theater, 2106 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA
Time: 8:30pm
Cost: $8 (get tickets here) or $12 at the door or $10 with a donation

Weekend Guide! Oct 7+8+9

It’s been a crazy day and I have to get ready for my camping extravaganza this weekend. That’s right, no air-mattress on this one, this is real camping. In the meantime I have to tell you about the awesome things happening this weekend:

Events:

826LA (an awesome charity in Echo Park) is hosting FILTER Culture Collide Festival in Echo Park ALL weekend. Cool people. Cool bands. As part of this event there is a Block Party on Sunday from 3-10p. Wristbands are $20, the money goes to charity AND you get an awesome weekend. Win Win.

Post No Bills in Venice is hosting Ron English’s “English 101” solo exhibit in their gallery for all of October. You’ll recognize his stuff. If you’re walking the boardwalk, check it out!

If live music and gallery openings aren’t your cup of tea, Silverlake Art Craft + Vintage is hosting their monthly “I heart Vintage” craft event on Saturday, where local venders come and sell homemade goods. If you’re trying to save money, just go take a peak and be inspired. While you’re there, take a walk along Sunset and check out the local shops. Oh yeah, and food trucks!

If you’re dying to do something a little more main stream, at 8:30p on October 10th at the Orpheum Theater Joseph Gordon-Levitt is hosting the Fall Formal with his collaborative production company, hitRECord.com. Not only is Joseph adorable and talented but he’s doing a great service to the artistic community. Check out his page.

Food+ Drink:

One of my favorite places to have a fancy dinner (Luna Park) and one of my favorite board game-themed bars (Henry’s Hat) happen to be sister restaurants and this Saturday if you go into either place and say “Weekday Brunch” to your waiter, you’ll get 50% off all food! What an awesome deal.

Thrillist is offering pizza and 90 minutes of unlimited craft brews  for $18 each! Such a good deal and it ends in 6 days. Check out the link and hit GET IT!

Per usual, if you are looking for bar game nights this weekend, Little Bar has a lively trivia night starting at 7:30p on Saturday. They do not serve food which means you can bring in whatever you want. Luna Park happens to be located across the street (check out the details above to get 50% off), maybe grab some grub and then head over to the Little Bar to test out the ol’ noggin. They also offer a Sunday dart tournament. On Sunday Bigfoot Lounge should be doing their Sunday night bingo! Call ahead to confirm the times.

Okay, I have supplied you with PLENTY to do this weekend. I didn’t even include all the plays and other (more costly, but still awesome) cultural events happening around LA this weekend. If you’re still struggling with what to do this weekend here’s an awesome idea: throw a boxed-wine tasting party. It sounds lame, but friends of mine did it once and it was SO much fun. Everyone invited brings a unique boxed-wine and the host provides tacky cheeses and crackers (ie. cut up string cheese on a ritz cracker). The tackier the better! Everyone does a tasting and the winner is whoever brought the best boxed-wine (come up with some super tacky prize). It’ll be memorable, for sure.
