LA Agenda Aug. 29-Sept. 4
Thurs. Aug. 29-Mon. Sept. 2, various times
Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
Before the fedora was the calling card of LA DBs (if you know what we mean), it was worn by some of the most iconic and sexiest classic film stars. Harken back to the days of true style and cinematic excellence by joining LA’s biggest movie buffs for screenings of lesser known classic films, celebrity appearances, and one of the best movie memorabilia shows in the country.
Fri. Aug. 30-Sat. Aug. 31, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
1540 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood
Labor Day might mark the unofficial end of summer, but bikini season is not over yet! This year’s mild weather means we could be in for an unseasonably warm fall (according to our own very unscientific theories). Thankfully, Voda Swim is hosting a swimsuit, jewelry, and clothing sample sale guaranteed to keep you cool in any season.
Fri. Aug. 30-Sun. Sept. 1, various times
Paramount Studios Back Lot, 5500 Melrose Ave., Hollywood
Ever dreamed of spending your weekend sipping handcrafted cocktails, savoring awe-inspiring snacks, and learning everything there is to know about food? How about being surrounded by LA’s most famous and impressive chefs? Well your culinary dreams are about to come true: This weekend’s The Taste is guaranteed to make you full and happy.
Fri. Aug. 30-Mon. Sept. 2, various times
RMS Queen Mary, 1126 Queen’s Highway, Long Beach
Been craving 1920s glam ever since you saw Leo Dicaprio in a pinstripe suit? It’s time to grab your flapper dress, perfect your finger wave, and head over to LA’s very own landmark of gorgeous art deco style. This year’s event features ’20s inspired cocktails, old timey radio shows, and and an all-out Gatsby-esque Grand Ball.
Fri. Aug. 30-Sun. Sept. 29, various times
Fairplex, 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona
We know that going to the county fair usually means wandering through a minefield of deep-fried temptations. But hey, don’t we all deserve a little treat that's dipped in batter, fried in oil, and smothered in chocolate? When you’re done munching (or, more accurately, stuffing your face), check out the tons of live entertainment and shopping options the fair has to offer.
Sat. Aug. 31-Mon. Sept. 2, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Main Stage at Pier Plaza and Beach Drive, Hermosa Beach
The Golden Rule of Labor Day is, “thou shalt not stay indoors.” What better way to soak up the sunshine than with a trip to the ocean for the art fairs, street food, and classic rock cover bands that make Hermosa one of the funnest beach towns around?
Mon. Sept. 2, 2-8 p.m.
Gladstone’s, 17300 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu
End your holiday weekend the the right way — at the beach with a cocktail, your closest friends…and DJ Vice and the EC Twins. Hyde Malibu will host a beachfront bash to send your summer off with a bang. Watching the sun set over the ocean with your toes in the sand will almost make you forget that summer is coming to a close.
1001 Gayley Ave., Suite 104, Westwood
You don’t have to be a UCLA student to enjoy the Westwood Wellness Center’s new tea lounge, but you do have to love learning about teas. The lounge offers Westsiders a little piece of heaven (or should we say nirvana) where customers can relax and participate in tea ceremonies hosted by natural medicine tea servers.
