The Best Fish Tacos Ever?

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.

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.

While we are normally happy to have left the terrible haircuts, awkward encounters with boys, and bad skin of our youth in the past, the summer is cer...

What do you's already the weekend! Or at least, nearly. While we sometimes wish we were still a colony belonging to England (those accents m...

A Burlesque Kind Of Weekend

Okay, so you guys know exactly how we feel about Fridays--we certainly don't play coy or hold back our true emotions when it comes to the weekend. Yet...

An Epic Weekend!

Broke Girls Guide

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

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 07.31.2013 | Los Angeles

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.

A Guilt-Free Happy Hour

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 05.28.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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.

Weekender -- Discounts, Drunken Desserts, and All Things Bridal

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 05.22.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 04.30.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 04.16.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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.

You've Got Some Seriously Aggro Shopping To Do Tomorrow

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 03.27.2013 | Los Angeles

Sunday morning, check out the German sausage pop-up Knackig at Mignon downtown. They had us at bottomless mimosas and breakfast brats.

BGG Weekender: DineLA, Freebie Art Shows and Concerts, and an Extra Day Off

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 03.20.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

We've got a big weekend ahead of us -- literally. Three whole days to do whatever we want?! We almost didn't know where to start. Almost.

PHOTOS: An End-Of-The-World Weekend

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 12.20.2012 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

We're squeezing out one more weekend of fun before family obligations hit hard next week. Sure, that means our fair share of Christmas events, but we're also dipping into a couple of once-in-a-millenium parties to usher in the so-called End of the World.

Weekender -- Potato Chip Art, Murder Mysteries, and Creepy Puppet Shows

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 02.12.2013 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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
Broke Girls Guide

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.

PHOTOS: A Frightening Weekend (& Other Things To Do)

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 12.25.2012 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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.

The Most Exciting Opening This Weekend

Broke Girls Guide | Posted 12.04.2012 | Los Angeles
Broke Girls Guide

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.

Chinatown Celebrates The Moon Festival

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.
