April 11 – 13
Held over four days in the heart of Hollywood, the TCM Classic Film Festival is a place where movie lovers from around the world can gather to experience classic movies as they were meant to be experienced: on the big screen, in some of the world’s most iconic venues, with the people who made them. Moreover, the TCM Classic Film Festival strives to be a place where a community of movie fans of all ages can share their love of classic movies with each other, make new friends and see films as they are seldom seen today.
Seriously. How cool is this? It’s events like these that remind me how fun it is to be at the epicenter of the film world. If you’re in the mood to get your nostalgia on at some of our most favorite and most famous theaters check out the listing of oldies they’ll be showing here – we’re talking Blazing Saddles, Father of the Bride (the old one… not 90’s old, like 50’s old), The Great Gatsby (no Leo), THE WIZZARD OF OZ, Cat on A Hot Tin Roof, and so many more. You have the option to buy “festival passes” or you may purchase individual tickets to any show for $20 (except for the Wizzard of Oz which will cost you $30). Ticket info here.
May 3 – 4
Awww yeeeaahh it’s back so start saving! Tons and tons of local vendors come back together to sell their locally made goods in one Unique space in Downtown LA.

It’s a wine tasting event! In LA! Count us in, but for the rest of you curious folk here’s how Wine Riot works:
Wine Riot is your all access pass to hundreds of new wines. With two parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented “wine tasting” for the thirsty and curious. Grab a glass and hit the floor — it’s you unleashed against 250 wines from across the globe. Travel the world of wine all under one roof and tackle things you’ve never tried before. We’ve rallied up a team of die-hard experts to bring you the brain juice: interactive booths and crash courses loaded with tips and tricks for conquering the wine world. Fueling your night of conquest is a tireless DJ, photo booth, temporary tattoos, and a few thousand of your closest friends. The best part is, we made an app that tracks your favorite wines and shows you where to buy them later, arming you with all the tools needed for total wine domination.
Tickets are $60 per event – purchase tickets and get more info here from the Wine Rioters themselves!
May 10 – Sept 13
I’m beyond excited to FINALLY make it to one of these events! It’s as simple as buy tickets ahead of time here (they’re a bit cheaper AND you have the option to buy the “fashionably late” ones which will get you a nice view), show up to the outdoor space, heck bring your dog if you want to, get some food and drink from the food trucks there that night, sit back relax and enjoy the show. LA, this is TOO COOL not to partake in! See you at the Big Lebowski, Eat See Hear.
