Posted by

Sometimes when you’re figuring out what to do with your weekend, what you really need is just a little help from your friends.

To that end, we asked a few of our fellow L.A. bloggers, podcasters, and social media brethren to help us out with their top picks for this weekend, and then we combined those choices with one pick from both Christina and I.


The result is a quick list of some of the absolutely best stuff happening in Los Angeles over the next couple days.

Hope it helps you find something awesome to do.

Have a great weekend!

2. Beyond Fest (All Weekend)

Picked by Jonathan Bilski, creator of Things to do in LA.

Jonathan says:

Returning from the depths after another year a film festival that is beyond normal understanding. Some of the strangest and newest films that may never be on the big screen again. There’s more than a few horror films including special showings for Evil Dead and Evil Dead II with Bruce Campbell and Edgar Wright talks after. The Devils, a 70’s horror cult classic that was rated X will be shown a may never make it back on screen. Classics like The Beyond and Invasion of the Body Snatchers are ready to scare a new generation. A new generation of weird will be shown with Japanese premieres on Yakuza and alien teachers.”

4. LA Korean Festival (Friday-Sunday)

Picked by Christina Minh, co-founder of We Like L.A.

Christina says:

“You’d be surprised how many types of Kimchi you can sample in one place, from raw octupus to root vegetable. Plus, there’s loads of live music and free entertainment, and it’s free to attend.

5. LA Haunted Hayride (Friday-Sunday)

Picked by Brian Champlin, co-founder of We Like L.A.

(That’s me, and yup, I’m going to quote myself, hah!)

“The hayride posits itself as a “a high scare, high startle content experience” which basically means that you and a bunch of strangers get carted around Griffith Park in and old wagon while costumed characters, demons, witches, devils, and pretty much everything else you can imagine slink out of the shadows and terrify you (and you try not to pee your pants).”
