Get Out: Sunday

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

PIG OUT LIKE A KID: At drink. eat. play's Gourmet Five Year Old Party being held this afternoon at Boulevard3 in Hollywood. Fresh takes on favorites from when you were a kid will include mac 'n cheese with lobster, kobe-style beef sloppy joes and assorted sophisticated sweets with plenty of free-flowing juice (wine) to wash it all down! (These are the same folks who brought you the Cupcake Challenge.)

GET ON THE BUS: And go on a BBQ adventure! LA Commons' 2008 kick off event for their summer series called "Trekking Los Angeles" takes you on a tour of Highland Park that culminates in a BBQ (or you can just go for the BBQ, too!).

PONY UP & CHOW DOWN FOR CHARITY: The Bony Pony Ranch Western Round Up and Barbeque is a fundraising event going down this afternoon out in Malibu for the Bony Pony Ranch Foundation, which helps disadvantaged kids by liaising them with positive role models and mentors. Yee haw and ride 'em cowboy!

STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE: And check out some cool classic cars Downtown on Olvera Street. They'll have "one of the largest collections of vintage automobiles in Los Angeles" for you to peruse while you take in one of our city's most historic areas. (Leave the cars to the fiesta, and take the Red Line!)

SEE SOME HOT CHICAS: California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica has been featuring an exhibit of Mexican Calendar Girls. Admission is only $5 and the Westside weather sure beats the heck out of the heat in some other parts of town.

Other things to do: See an "unscripted" matinee, check out a Film Fest flick, get your geek on, do a mac and cheese taste test, or drink some tequila cocktails.
