Suddenly it's summer
All the weatherpeople are telling us that temperatures Saturday and Sunday will top 80 degrees. Which isn't all that hot compared to 1971, when February 11th and 12th hit 88 and 91, respectively. But considering our East Coast bretheren are buckling down for a blizzard, we're pretty lucky.
What to do to enjoy the great warm outdoors? On Satuday you could start by taking a guided walking tour of Echo Park and then head to Monterey Park for the dumpling balls and other fun at the Lantern Festival (it's on Sunday, too). You could bike from Silverlake to the ocean and back again and then take your ravenous self to the Autry Center for some frontier-style outdoor BBQ.
On Sunday you can go shopping at open air market at the Saugus Speedway on Sunday in Santa Clarita.
Got any pleasant-weather weekend plans?
