Now stop lusting over NYC and get ready to enjoy another gorgeous weekend on the west (read: best) coast. To help you enjoy the myriad restaurants, shows and shopping we're sending you to, we've dug up promo codes for credits (yes, free money) on ride share apps Uber, FlyWheel, and Lyft. All that aside, we're also giving away a year's worth of yoga classes c/o YogaGlo, which at its normal $18/month is a great deal, and gratis is, frankly, a broke girl's dream.

New York Fashion Week officially starts today, but if you're the broke girl we know you are (say it loud, say it proud), your front row to the runway involves some combination of Instagram, YouTube and obsessive scouring of street style blogs. We're right there with you - but we can't endorse spending a beautiful September weekend indoors.

Today's weekender is for the rest of you who, for whatever reason, decided to opt out of the whole Coachella experience. Luckily, there's no reason to despair at being left behind, as we luckily live in Los Angeles, not Topeka, and there's never a dull moment here.

We here at Broke Girl's Guide know that your #1 priority this weekend is probably seeing whether your early longshot pick ends up winning the Final Four, in which case we highly recommend posting up at one of our favorite sports bars for meeting men, er, watching sports.

The weekend is almost upon us, which means we can close our computers for a bit and enjoy the world beyond the office for once. Planning to do exactly that, we have plotted a busy weekend full of varied diversions accordingly.

We're obviously excited it's almost the weekend, but we're also wondering if we should be feeling some type of existential angst about the fact that life seems to be passing us by so quickly... Nah.

Weekender -- Old-School Hip Hop, Bottomless Brunches, and Swimsuit Sales

So, it's going to be something like 86 degrees outside tomorrow. We at Broke Girl's Guide therefore suggest, nay, insist that you cut class, play hooky at work, or be otherwise irresponsible, because life is short and sunshine is free.

Eat Some Damn Good Tacos

We're going to spend the next few days in the thick of it, mixed up in a few dance parties, modern home tours, Chinese New Year celebrations, and even a miniature treehouse show. That's right -- it's all happening in Los Angeles this week.

The pure chaos of the last month almost makes us want to go into hibernation until spring. Then again, there's way too much going on to hide at home all weekend.

BGG Weekly Playlist: Lobsterpalooza, MEMES Week and 5 Second Films

While we're busy trying to convince ourselves that we don't want to go to Cochella - because really, who are the Stone Roses? - we'll be gorging on lobsters, meeting up with a Swedish dance duo, watching miniature films and learning how to make perfect cocktails.

You've Got Some Seriously Aggro Shopping To Do Tomorrow

We know; it's been a while. It feels like we haven't worked a full week since mid-December. (And, actually, that's more or less true.) But fret not; we assure you that you can make it through the next five days of workplace brutality -- with a little help from yours truly, of course.

If you aren't knee-deep in goodwill towards man, you are, like most of the Internet, probably knee-deep in goodwill towards Ikea Monkey instead. This little guy and his subsequent web frenzy were basically what got us through this week.

Weekender -- Espionage, Renegades and Nihilists

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 02.05.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

Traversing this month's landscape of holiday cheer is a full-time job. Not to mention your actual job, your social life, and the fact that you can't pay for any of it. Never fear, we weeded through this weekend's onslaught to give you the best of the best.

Weekender --The Nutcracker, The Sartorialist, and Sample Sales Galore

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 01.30.2013 | Los Angeles

There are sample sales to pillage, books to be signed, and a gaping hole in our highbrow culture world that needs filling. This weekend, we're living it up... with nary a puppet nor biopic in sight.

Now that we've cleared the first two hurdles in holiday season mayhem (that would be Thursday's food coma and Friday's shopping frenzy), we're settling in to a month full of rum cocktails, sparkling trees and dark, cozy bars
