Memorial Day Weekend 2014: Our Official L.A. Party Guide
Holidays

Memorial Day is a wonderful little calendar gift that too many of us take for granted. It is a holiday that should be recognized and celebrated for many reasons. The obvious and most blatant, of course, is the celebration of men and women who have passed while serving and protecting our country. But Memorial Day also marks the commencement of summer and generously provides (most of) us a three day weekend. While some of us may have been proactive and booked great weekend getaways, Angelenos who'll be staying home need not worry: Los Angeles will be just as poppin’ as the rest of the West Coast. So click through for all the best day, night, and day-to-night bashes happening this MDW!

Summer is just around the corner and we all know what that means. It’s the best time of the year for everyone’s favorite between-meals meal: brunch.

However, we are here to help. Check out this list of some of LA’s finest hot spots where you can get your brunch on.

FYF Fest Is Back With A Kick-Ass Lineup and Way Better Venue!

FYF Fest Is Back With A Kick-Ass Lineup and Way Better Venue!
Music

Ummm...whaaaat? You guys! We are way too excited for this year's FYF Fest. The line-up is a sort of mix of the last two years of Coachella (which is fine by us) with some heavy hitters in there, and the VENUE! Personally, the dust at the fest's usual park located venue in Chinatown is NOT our fav, so we were so so happy to see that this year it'll be held at the L.A. Sports Arena. Side tip: check out music act Darkside (a semi-new fav). You won't regret it. Yay! See ya'll there. Psst: tickets on sale Thursday, May 22nd at 12 p.m. PDT right HERE.
