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.
“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.”
3. Muse ’til Midnight

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.”
5. Long Beach BBQ Fest
Picked by Christina Minh, co-founder of We Like L.A.
“Not only is this a great excuse to enjoy some delicious BBQ, but I’m going to be helping judge the competition on Saturday afternoon. Come say hi!”
6. Fiesta La Ballona
Picked by Brian Champlin, co-founder of We Like L.A.
(That’s me, and yup, I’m going to quote myself, hah!)
“Free street party in Culver City, all weekend long featuring live music, food, carnival rides, petting zoo, beer garden, and more!”
