6 Things You Gotta Have on Your Radar This Weekend (According to The Influencers of L.A.) 8-28-15

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!

1. Dodgers Social Night

Kristen Rae Lepore, social producer for KPCC, reminded us that it’s social media night at Dodger Stadium on Friday (today!). Fans can buy a special package that includes a ticket to the game in the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion and a voucher redeemable for a Social Media Night t-shirt. Stay after the game to watch Friday Night Fireworks from the field.

2. Mutated Game Form

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

Jonathan says:

“Artists influenced by video games, how will contemporary artists capture Donkey Kong or Pokemon? This art show may not be that heavily connected to those characters, just the ideas of what gaming is or symbolism that comes from them.”

Traffic maven Kajon Cermak (from KCRW) wanted us to remind our audience about the late-night party happening at LACMA on Saturday 🙂

4. DJ Questlove’s Michael Jackson Celebration at Grand Park LA

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

“In celebration of the late great king of pop, DJ Questlove of the Roots and Jimmy Fallon show will grace party goers. There will be food trucks and a cash bar for those who like a liquid libation.”
