With a couple of days before Election Day, this weekend would have been a nice reprieve from the chaos. Then came Sandy. First, donate to The Red Cross. Then have a good weekend like those New Yorkers are trying to do. Gotta love that east coast resilience!

Between yet another debate (town hall style's rather exhausting) and the flurry of commentary, we're feeling a little three-hole punched (in the gut). So, we've decided to ditch the binder and have ourselves a weekend to remember.

It's not every day we get to watch two grown men in matching American flag pins argue for the length of a feature film. Kudos if you managed to take in the entire thing -- we'd say you deserve a weekend full of burgers, shopping, and block parties.

Between the mini-Carmageddon reprise and the 100-degree heat, this weekend had our blood boiling. Here's how we'll be spending our time as temperatures plummet (to all of 85 degrees)...

It's that time of the year again: All our gloaty East Coast friends can't stop beaming about their damn foliage. And why, you might ask, could we care less? Because this weekend's got fun in spades -- and not an apple-picking adventure in sight.

If you're as tired as we are of seeing everyone you know at the same go-to restaurants and bars you always default to, we may have the perfect, broke-girl-friendly solution; a day out in Koreatown.

While this abbreviated workweek should have left us feeling rested and rejuvenated, we somehow feel just as exhausted as ever. Let's all hope that our seventh-inning energy kicks in, as this weekend's agenda is not one to be missed.

It doesn't take a genius to imagine how we feel about the almost-here, right-around-the-corner 3-day vacation otherwise known as Labor Day weekend. Here's how we plan to make the most of what lies ahead (no yachts, jets, or passports required):

With temperatures pushing 90 all week, we at Broke Girl's Guide are just about ready to ditch our work-appropriate clothing and wander into the office in a bikini. This impulse alone is proof that this weekend can't come quickly enough!

While we're trying not to dwell on the passing of July, we vow to make the remains of summer worthwhile so that we don't find ourselves suddenly decorating pumpkins with no sandy stories to tide us through the brutal L.A. winter months.

We love L.A. summers, and we don't use the "L" word often. Life would only be better if we were rich and summering in St. Tropez, but until that goes down we're pretty content with the following.

This weekend looks like it'll provide for more than one opportunity to live up our youth, being that it includes Cinco de Mayo, MC Hammer, the Kentucky Derby, and a Mexican wrestling/burlesque show. Here goes...
