Weekend Guide June 1 + 2 + 3

Happy June 1! At that end of this month, we’ll be halfway through the year! Can you believe it? Where does the time go? We’ll it’s Friday already, which means it’s Weekend Guide time. There aren’t a ton of things on my radar this weekend, but the few events there are sound very cool. This weekend I’ll be posting the rest of the Hawaii posts so this way we start next week anew. Expect an insane amount of secret stair walks, and another Comedy Bang Bang post.

FRIDAY June 1:

Today is FREE DONUT DAY! at Krispie Kreme. You heard me right. Get there tonight!

After you’re all full on donuts, check out the Gallery 1988 opening at their Melrose location from 7-10 tonight. The show is called “Inner Nature” with work by Brad Klausen and Marq Spusta.

If you are interested in musicals and or Lord of the Rings Parodies, check out the Trepany Theater (formally the Steve allen Theater) for tickets to tonight’s 8pm show. It looks hilarious.

SATURDAY June 2:

On Saturday check out the Hester Street Fair, it’s FREE! From 11am to 7pm they are hosting the Bite Size Food and Craft Festival. There will be a craft beer garden, craft vendors, food vendors, and live music. Did I mention it’s free? This all takes place at Hollywood and Argyle Ave, right near the metro stop. There’s no reason not to check out this event.

You know the usual Saturday night public movie screenings, Street Food Cinema is hosting Ghost Protocol. Bring blankets and food, or get something from the many food trucks that will be there. It all takes place at Exposition Park, with $10 parking. Doors open at 5:30p, band plays at 6:30, movie at 8:30p. Tickets are $10 each.

SUNDAY June 3:

On Sunday the Franklin Village Festival is happening on Franklin Ave (duh) in Hollywood. Check out their facebook page, or their website for the full list of bands performing.

I leave you with this trailer for TJ Miller’s short. Watch the trailer then click the link below it and watch the full 14 min video. It’s really funny and worth your time.

I’m Having A Hard Time Killing My Parents

The Weekend Guide April 27 + 28 + 29

If you can’t tell, I’m running a tad behind today. Fun-employment is on the horizon and yet the workload hasn’t slowed. Any who, I’m so close to the finish line and this next week is my final dash. In the meantime, you’ll have to accept this late-in-the-game Weekend Guide, my sincere apology, and this blog hug that Im sending through WordPress.

Before I get to the guide, I want to throw a shout out to a great hiking blog which is hugely successful: Modern Hiker. I’ve used it to help check trail conditions and only recently did I find out that it’s written by a friend of mine. It’s extremely thorough and accurate. His most recent post is about LA hikes that can help get you ready for climbing Mt. Whitney. Since I’m hoping to climb it in August, you can expect me to be doing these hikes on my hiatus and blogging about them diligently. Check out his blog!

FRIDAY April 27th:

I know it’s almost too late to even mention these activities but… BKB (a radical 90’s cover-band) is playing at the Kibitz Room (Canters Deli) tonight at 10:30p. There’s still time to get there and join in the 90’s merriment. Check the facebook invite HERE!

SATURDAY April 28:

The first thing I’m telling you about is an exhibit you can see for a while and there’s nothing specific relating to this Saturday… but it looks like a very LA thing to check out. Add it to your list, and if you’re free, it’s the Paley Center’s “Television Out Of The Box” by Warner Bros. Tickets are $10, but you get to see items specific to your favorite TV shows that you can’t see anywhere else. Why not test your tv trivia HERE?

From 11am-6pm tomorrow night is the Grilled Cheese Invitational at the Rosebowl. Stop your eating now, so you can have the appropriate appetite for this monster event. For $15 tickets to the event click HERE.

If you’re lactose intolerant, skip the Grilled Cheese event and get $12 tickets to TJ Miller’s Hangover Matinee at Cinefamily (Silver Movie Theatre). T.J Miller is hosting a screening of the old school (1933) Alice and Wonderland.

Maybe when you’re done with the movie or the cheese, hit-up Known Gallery’s exhibit of Sesame Street. It’s not exactly the Sesame Street youre thinking of.. think street art. Check out this video:

SUNDAY April 29:

This Sunday in Burbank is Ladies Night Out along Magnolia. The stores stay open later, and food trucks come out. Even if you’re not in it for the shops of the food, come for the walk. It’s a great area to people watch and get some exercise. Maybe visit Tony’s Darts Away when you’re done? 🙂

This next activity is WAY outta my price range, but for $100 you can get a ticket to Largo on Sunday to the charity event One Kid One World. Kevin Nealon is hosting and features Sarah Silverman, Amiee Mann, David Spade, Dana Gould, and more guests.
