It’s going to be a beautiful weekend Los Angeles! Here are some of the best, non-boring things to do in L.A.’s Eastside for the weekend of 8/3/12 to 8/5/12.
Friday, 8/3/12: Pixar in Concert at the Bowl
As many of you know, I’m a sucker for Pixar and have an incredibly soft spot for Up and WALL•E. I’ll be attending with a box of tissues and Costco-sized Visine red-eye reliever for after. I’ve seen Up’s first 4 minutes a million times and it still brings on the waterworks. I don’t stand a chance this weekend when the music from those scenes are played live.
When: From 8/3-8/5, 8PM
Where: Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles, 90068
Web: Pixar in Concert
