Weekend Guide October 12 + 13 + 14

Due to a bad/spotty internet and a rushed day at work, I’m going to have to give you the abbreviated version of the Weekend Guide. Sorry bout that, but there are some gems!

The weekend is the LA Podcasting Festival downtown. If you are like me and love podcasts (specifically the comedy ‘casts) come check out this event and meet the faces behind the voices. It’s all weekend, so check the schedule to see your favs.

Tonight there is an outdoor Grand Park movie screening of The Goonies with festivities starting at 5:30p. Pack up a picnic, hop on the metro and head downtown to watch this classic film. Over on the west side? Check out the Santa Monica’s Pier screening of Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Jesse Miller’s Talk Show is tonight at the Improv Lab, with special guest Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks) and lots more. You’ll have fun and it’s only $5.

Do you have Space Shuttle fever? If you missed it flying across LA, don’t miss your chance to see it driven to it’s final resting spot at the California Science Center.

The OohLaLa Festival is happening this weekend around Los Angeles. This festival is a showcase of French bands playing all around LA. Check HERE for the schdule. At least if you can’t make any of the shows you can find them on itunes and get cultured. Oui Oui!

If you’ve never been to the Walt Disney Music Hall (like me), then their “Where The Wild Things” event this weekend might be the perfect opportunity to experience the LA Philharmonic. Tickets range for $18-$180, and check here for availability.

On Sunday from 11a -5pm the LA Antiques, Art and Design Show is happening at the Santa Monica Hangar. It’s a bit pricy ($20) but you’re supporting the arts and hopefully getting inspired.

Sunday night at El Cid is a new comedy show called “El Show!”. It’s a $10 suggested donation (it goes to the Livestrong Foundation), tons of comedians including the NYC based Dan Mintz, Trevor Moore, Eric Andrea, Kyle Mooney, Jon Dore… basically, you need to be there.

Weekend Guide October 5 + 6 + 7

Now that Im back as a workin’-stiff, I’m definitely counting down the days until the weekend and it’s finally here! My prayers have been answered! This is a fun Weekend Guide full of (free or cheap) festivals!







Weekend Guide September 28 + 29 + 30

This is painful to do… especially because there are some fun activities going on this weekend… but since I will be without internet all day, I have no choice. Your weekend Guide is going to be abbreviated and pitiful. I’m sorry. It’s painful to do this, but I don’t have a choice. Here’s what I’ve got:

Eat See Hear is hosting an outdoor screening of The Wizard of Oz tonight at the Santa Monica Pier. This series will continue all month and it’s called Front Porch Cinema at the Pier.

This weekend is the Italian Feast of San Gennaro. It’s an Italian food festival happening all weekend. Single-day passes are only $5! There are all sorts of events like bocce and bingo! There are some celebrity guests too. See if you can stop in any day this weekend.

If you need more comedy in your life, the Meltdown Theater is hosting Myq Kaplan and Micah Sherman’s album release. Starts at 8pm and tickets are $8 in advance HERE. These guys are awesome, so Im sure this will be a good time.

Carmageddon Saturday!!! Ahhhhh!

The Chinese Moon Festival is this weekend and Chinatown is celebrating! Check out the link for all the details.

The Warehouse in Echo Park has a re-opening celebration happening on Saturday at 7pm. Why not hit the store and check out other neighborhood favorites like Mohawk Bend? Maybe catch a show at the Echo?

I was going to tell you about a Beer Week Festival at Union Station, but I’m told tickets are no longer available. So scratch that… or see if you can talk your way in. IT’s a little pricy ($50), but if you love beer, it’s a don’t-miss.

My last Weekend Guide Event is sponsored by the Smithsonian Magazine and it’s Museum Day Live! Go to that link, and search for local museums that are participating. Get your ticket from the website, print, and off to the museum you go. It’s FREE! Museums can be expensive, so take advantage of this Sunday!
