What To Do With Yourself This Weekend

Don’t fret, dear readers. We’ve got your whole L.A. weekend planned out for you.

Your Friday:
The Underground Rebel Bingo Club
What better way to start the weekend than with a sloppy, drunken game of bingo at a super secret location? And the location really is a secret, at least until they post it on their Facebook page.
10:00 pm @ Somewhere in L.A. $10.

Your Saturday:
American Idol: How It Shook The World – A Conversation
Richard Rushfield, author of “American Idol: The Untold Story,” will lead a panel discussion with American Idol cast, crew, and experts on the karaoke show that became a pop culture sensation.
2:00 – 3:30 pm @ The Mark Taper Auditorium, Downtown Central Library. Free!

Your Sunday:
