Things to do this weekend in Los Angeles: Feb 9-11

Michael Juliano

We curate an L.A. weekend itinerary of the city’s best concerts, culture and cuisine, every week, just for you.


Let the good times roll at Runway Playa Vista’s first annual Mardi Gras celebration, complete with food trucks, an eight-piece brass band, a beer garden, a parade and a pop-up marketplace.

Looking to watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics? Hole up in one of these bars across the city where you can watch the Winter Olympics.

Catch a set from YACHT at the Lodge Room. The L.A. avant-pop duo plays a hometown show in support of its latest dancy EP.

Get sweaty at a special pre-Valentine’s dance party from A Club Called Rhonda as Rhondavous: A Lover’s Ball takes over the nightclub Union.


Dart around Santa Monica in your undies—for a good cause, of course—as the annual Cupid’s Undie Run comes to the Victorian.

Acquaint yourself with over 100 works from one of America’s most iconic living artists as “Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’” opens at the Broad. Though advance reservations are already sold out for the weekend, a limited number of standby tickets will be available.

Hear stories of past V-Days gone wrong at Mortified Doomed Valentine’s Show, with beer, wine and inappropriate tales during an early set at Wanderlust Hollywood.

Spend an evening at Frogtown’s premier (and only?) alfresco comedy show as the monthly Frogtown Show comes to the riverfront Spoke Bicycle Cafe. Tonight’s lineup includes Mary Lynn Rajskub as well as Jak Knight, one of our L.A. comedians to watch in 2018.

Take your pick between a pair of late-night, over-the-top soirees. Celebrate the macabre work of writer and illustrator Edward Gorey at the annual Edwardian Ball, with an off-kilter costume party and dance at the Globe Theatre. Or feast on unlimited oysters and an open bar during Disco Dining Club’s 3 Year Anniversary Gala at the Deco Building.


Ogle the scantily clad subjects of the Getty’s art collection as the comical Naked at the Getty Scavenger Hunt comes to the museum just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Shop and browse five centuries of rare volumes at the Pasadena Convention Center during the California International Antiquarian Book Fair, which this year celebrates the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Make a mockery out of L.A.’s dating scene at Angel City Brewery’s Broken Hearts Circus, which gathers stilt walkers and a magician for an afternoon of beer and amusements.

Head to Dodger Stadium—no, baseball’s not back quite yet—for the final night of Luzia. For Cirque du Soleil’s latest spectacle, the French-Canadian circus troupe looks south to Mexico for inspiration.
