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.
We've all seen the person who fidgets impatiently at a crosswalk while pressing the "walk" button. That scene is immediately proceeded by a similar one: That of another guy who just witnessed the zillion button pushes who then pushes the button a few more times.
If you've ever wondered why LACMA's east campus looks like a Lincoln Center-wannabe emerging from an '80s porn star's pink-tiled shower stall, this exhibition will tell you exactly why. But the showstopper, which entranced me for a solid three hours yesterday, is Zumthor's proposed redesign.
Okay, dig: If you're in or around Los Angeles, the charming, smart and hella talented singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith plays Largo at the Coronet tonight, the 5th of June. They don't like it if you're late. Factor in traffic. Get there.
We set out to interview people we consider to be local heroes behind our favorite places and events, and bring you stories of those who contribute beauty, steward nature, share their culture and inspire us.
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.
Good morning! And yes, we say that with an exclamation mark because we know that when today is done, there's a 3-day weekend waiting for us on the other side.
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.
Bug fairs, puppets, a peek into local homes and gardens and so much more to explore on a beautiful May weekend. (Pssst... this is why we live here!)
Looking for a different way to honor your mom on Sunday? Here are our ideas for non-traditional, creative and unusual ways to spend the day together -- with a focus on music, art and nature!
Roger Mathey's latest revival of Irvine Welsh's cult novel about a circle of heroin addict friends in Edinburgh, Scotland, Trainspotting, is one of the most visceral, blood and guts stage dramas I've seen in recent memory -- or maybe ever.
The 2013 L.A. Modernism show is a chic and curated event that hits the city and captures over sixty exhibitors showing design, decorative and art from across the 20th century. Cool local artists, retailers and companies were on hand this past week and did not disappoint with amazing collections.
This weekend has a smorgasbord of other cultural offerings from the Los Angeles Children's Film Festival at the Aero Theater to a Topanga Canyon festival and K.A.M.P. at the Hammer.

I think that MOCA and its Geffen Contemporary offshoot, are really fulfilling their missions under the direction of a fellow named Jeffrey Deitch.
It's hard to top CicLAvia, but we've got butterflies, puppets, another energized dance performance, a free music concert and an incredible film festival at the ArcLight Hollywood.
