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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This week marks the end of the first month of summer (wah, WAH), and while that means we've still got two months left to enjoy half-day Fridays (KIDDING, we don't get those), there's no time like the present to start living life to the fullest.
Everybody needs a pick me up now and again -- especially when it's only Tuesday and all you can think about is the weekend -- and what better way to get motivated than to partake in some of the ridiculously amazing things to do in Los Angeles?
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.
When the weekend begins, we completely understand the urge to drop everything, smash your computer screen and run like a wild banshee into the bliss of Saturday and Sunday. And do we even have to tell you that Friday is National Doughnut Day?
