The weekend shouldn’t just be used for errands — you earned the right to live a little after a long week! We don’t know about you, but we don’t want to waste a single second of it. So when Friday rolls around, we are ready to start the fun — and this is what we’ll be doing in Los Angeles!

EAT IT UP

GRAB A CBD FUDGE SUNDAE AT VAN LEEUWEN (4/20)

Prepare to be relaxed — like really relaxed — this 4/20. Van Leeuwen ice cream has partnered with The Alchemist’s Kitchen and Buffy to give you the ultimate Friday pop-up experience. From 2 to 11 p.m., you can enjoy a sundae topped with a 2-milligram dose of CBD oil. While you’re on cloud 9, there will be fluffy comforters from Buffy to lounge and hang out. Head to 5915 Franklin Ave. (in Hollywood Hills) to enjoy!

FEED YOUR INNER FOODIE AT SMORGASBURG LA (4/22)

Every Sunday, you can go to the Alameda Produce Market in DTLA and try foods you’ve never had before! There’s no shortage of creativity at Smorgasburg LA. There are dishes like vegan donut ice cream sandwiches, churro bites topped with Fruity Pebbles, and bacon, egg, cheese, and avocado sandwiches. Plus, there are new offerings every week!

SEE IT UP

WATCH BLADE RUNNER (1982) ON A ROOFTOP (4/20)

The Rooftop Cinema Club is back with a full season full of films! Head to the DTLA level for an 8 p.m. rooftop screening of Blade Runner (1982).

WATCH THE BREAKFAST CLUB ON A ROOFTOP (4/21)

You can’t beat a classic like The Breakfast Club! Grab your ticket for the 10:30 p.m. screening at the Rooftop Cinema Club’s Montalban location to be transported back to the ‘80s.

BOARD THE QUEEN MARY AND WATCH TITANIC (4/21)

We’re not sure if watching Titanic while on a boat is a cool idea or a little eerie (maybe both?). Your $25 ticket will get you a self-guided tour of the Queen Mary, access to the museum, access to the Titanic exhibit, and the movie screening at 8 p.m. Snag a ticket here!

GO ON A SPRING BLOOM WALK

It’s that time of year! Beautiful cherry blossoms and flowering trees will take over the city at Descanso Gardens. The spring bloom walk will include guided walks through the gardens and origami lessons. Enjoy!
