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. Van Beethoven (Friday-Sunday)
Kristen Rae Lepore, social producer for KPCC reminds us that VAN Beethoven, a virtual reality LA Philharmonic experience will be stopping by multiple locations all over Los Angeles this weekend. Oh, and it’s 100% free!
.@LAPhil's #VANBeethoven will be all over L.A. this weekend. It's a virtual orchestra with @GustavoDudamel! http://t.co/QofzClXxX6 @WeLikeLA

2. In Love and Warcraft (Saturday)
Picked by Jonathan Bilski, creator of Things to do in LA.
“A love story set around the game of Warcraft is now a modern day play at the Los Angeles Theatre. Follow a gamer girl as she rules her guild and looks for love.”
3. Los Lobos at Levitt Pavillon
Picked (and hosted) by Gerren Kelsaw, creator of the This Is The City Podcast.
“East Los originals Los Lobos have been rocking stages for decades. Gracing MacArthur park with a freeshow saturday night expect food trucks, great music, good times and perhaps bailando hasta la noche!.”
4. LA Cider Festival (Saturday)
Picked by Christina Minh, co-founder of We Like L.A.
“It’s not a wine… it’s not a beer… it’s cider! And if you want to try as many varieties as you can stomach, head on over to the LA Cider Fest at historic Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. Artisanl food samples, beers (yes, those too), and cider tutorials will complete the experience.”
5. A Baggins Birthday Bash (Sunday)
Picked by Brian Champlin, co-founder of We Like L.A.
(That’s me, and yup, I’m going to quote myself, hah!)
“Every year LOTR fans gather to celebrate the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, which (apparently) fall on the 22nd of September. This Sunday a group of Hobbit enthusiasts will gather in Griffith Park for a potluck to mark the occasion. This is a must for any true Tolkien fan.”
