Things To Do

5 Things You Gotta Have on Your Radar This Weekend (According to The Influencers of L.A.) 10-23-15

October 23, 2015 by Brian Champlin

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!

1. Grand Ave Arts: All-Access (Saturday)

Kristen Rae Lepore, social producer for KPCC, reminds us about the huge day of freebies headed to DTLA along Grand Ave. this Saturday, including free entry to MOCA,  The Broad, Disney Concert Hall, and more!

2. IndieCade (Saturday)

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

Jonathan says:

If you’re an indie game lover or maker you need to spend the next three days in Culver City. The day and streets are jam packed with indie games to play, and not all on the computer or console. Card games, board games and even social games that have you questing in real life. VR for those who hate real life.

3. Farewell to the 6th Street Bridge (Saturday)

Picked by Gerren Kelsaw, creator of the This Is The City Podcast.

Gerren says:

Saying goodbye to this is iconic landmark is admittedly not easy for any of us. Though the beautifully designed replacement is some solace, this celebration is a great send off to a piece of LA history. Curated by council member Huizar, the musical entertainment rivals any free show you’ll see this weekend.

4. DTLA Oyster Fest at Grand Central Market (Saturday-Sunday)

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

Christina says:

$2 a shuck? From hand-picked farmers across the U.S.? Sign me up!.”

5. Corgi Beach Day

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

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

You mean other than the uncontainable cuteness? If you’re a dog lover / owner, you owe it to yourself to make it to at least one of these (non corgis are welcome too).
