While we wish we could close our eyes and sleep until Sunday morning, there's just too much to miss - like a Jimmy Eat World concert at the Palladium (talk about throwback), an amazing happy hour in Santa Monica that we're dying to try (dollar oysters and five spot margaritas, y'all), and a chance to get your hands on a free Americano machine, which we can only imagine will be incredibly useful morning after the aforementioned.

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.

Before heading into that glorious two day respite we call the weekend, all of us here at Broke Girls Guide like to reflect on the last four days we've, ahem, endured. Despite our best efforts, the goals we set for ourselves at the outset of each new week ("gym and kale every day!") become distant to do's in the face of long workdays, unexpected calls from crushes, and irresistible invites.

If you woke up this morning feeling as though you'd lost your will to live, let us give it back to you. To start, it is National Doughnut Day. (You're feeling better already, right?) Also on tap for the weekend: some amazing sales including the Gilt City Warehouse Sale and the Helms District Vintage Boutique, a ton of great music including the Jubilee Music Festival, an appearance by Bill Clinton, and a cemetery screening of Pulp Fiction.

Get A Clue

Seriously, can you beat a weekend that involves 85 degree temperatures, outdoor screenings of films like Risky Business and Clueless, and (randomly) tons of shellfish? We think not.

You could also skip all of the above if you've got a little cash available to spend on tickets to the KROQ Weenie Roast, where you'll catch performances by The Black Keys, 30 Seconds to Mars, Vampire Weekend, and others.

Brewery Artwalk, Taste Of The East Side

Just take care, as last year's country music festival was riddled with rowdy, aggressive fans and lots of fights. Almost makes you miss the ditzy faux-hippies of last weekend, no?

The weather is going to be glorious this weekend, and there will be lots to do, including Brokechella, which we love for obvious reasons, the LA Times Festival of Books, which is basically our Christmas, and a really random '80s dance party, which needs no caveat.

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.

All you have to do is throw on something green, head to your nearest divey pub, and get your game face on. If we can manage 60+ hour workweeks, we can handle a little marathon partying, no?

We get to spring our clocks forward this weekend, which means less sleep, sure, but also more sun. Nothing makes us happier than leaving work when it's still light outside, so we're very much looking forward to the change in both clocks and seasons.

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.

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.
