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. The Future Party

Picked by Jonathan Nafarrete (aka @Jonathan360), co-founder of VR Scout.

Jonathan says:

A party from the future. Experience what’s new in virtual reality, catch up with the best in games, and hang out with some like-minded folks in both industries. Attendances is free, space is limited.”

2. Cop Car with Kevin Bacon at the London Hotel

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

Jonathan says:

Kevin Bacon will be answering your questions to his latest film that made sirens go off, Cop Car. Taking place at a fancy hotel near Sunset. He stars in the film as a no-good cop off to stop some kids who find his cop car. It suppose to remind you of an old Amblin Entertainment film from your childhood.”
