Weekend Fun 2/5-2/7
Welcome back to the Weekend Fun Guide! I know it’s been a long time since we put one of these up but the first weekend in February’s as a good a time as any to jump back in, right? Now I’m not sure whether it’s because the Super Bowl is this weekend or because I’m a little rusty at researching but I had a rough time finding cheap and interesting things for Friday and Sunday so this Weekend Guide is a little thinner than I’d like it to be.
Echo Park PDA (Public displays of ART) – This is kind of like an art walk but instead of bouncing from gallery to gallery the art will be on on display in driveways and hanging from fences. Instead of bringing the public to the art, they’re bringing the art out into public! From 12pm-6pm starting at the corner of Echo Park Ave. and Sunset Blvd. (where you can pick up a map) you can explore the neighborhood all the while enjoying driveway drive-ins, garage band concerts in garages, Chain link fence galleries, and many other creative public displays of art.
Hawaii at the Grove – Every Saturday in February from 12pm-7pm The Grove is going to be turned into a Hawaiian paradise with food, drinks, music, and lots of activities to keep you busy! (Hula lessons, anyone?) Each weekend they’ll be focusing on a different Island and this weekend they kick it off with Kaua’i! Relax to Hawaiian music performed by Kaua’i's own Nick Castillo and the graceful hula of one of the island’s top talents, Noelani Kau’i. Enjoy delicious Kaua’i Coffee and explore the variety of Kaua’i Made products on display.
Super Bowl Sunday Round-up – Our friend EstarLA put together this great list of things to do on Super Bowl Sunday so if you don’t already have plans you should really check this out!
Bank of America Free Museum Admission – Enjoy Free admission to select museums just for flashing your BoA card!
Fallen Fruit’s Tree Giveaway - Fallen Fruit is celebrating their upcoming EATLACMA exhibit by giving away fruit trees. Their whole deal is the belief that fruit should be communal so they’re sharing fruit trees with people in the hopes that they’ll plant them in a place where everyone can enjoy them! They’ll be handing out saplings Saturday at the Watts Towers Arts Center & Charles Mingus Youth Arts Center and on Sunday at LACMA both starting at 12pm. Get there early to make sure you get a tree!
