With t-minus one week between us and Thanksgiving, we're savoring the flavor of pre-holiday hustle, bustle and family overload. The quiet before the food coma begins now with art openings, new restaurants, and tons of charity.
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!
This is THE weekend we've all been waiting for, the one in which it's considered socially acceptable to dress up like idiots and parade around getting tipsy on pumpkin-flavored beer. In other words, it's like every other weekend, but with costumes.
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.
While we like to dabble all over town, the return of Carmageddon this weekend is a good excuse to exercise a little neighborhood pride. So whether you're a breezy Westsider or a hipper-than-thou Eastsider, we've got you covered for the weekend.
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.
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.
As the games kick off in London on Saturday, we'll be busy busting a move in LA in celebration of National Dance Day! Learn some moves and catch a special performance from Cirque du Soleil at the opening of Downtown's Grand Park.
You know those weeks that are so rough that you actually consider becoming Hef's #1 girl so that you can move into the mansion and cease to worry about anything but your spray tan? We at Broke Girl's Guide are having one of them.
Exhausted from dealing with the psychopath who calls himself your boss? Head to Culver City and grab a snack from Fraiche's secret menu. Then, catch an 8 p.m. screening of the classic (we're not kidding) film Center Stage.
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...
