There are probably some of you out there who feel like it's important to spend Memorial Day weekend in silent reflection over the sacrifices made in the name of American freedom. And we very much respect that, and send our profound thanks to those who serve our country. We also think that the best way to celebrate freedom, once you've given your thanks, is to go out and have a completely awesome time. Luckily for you, there's a bounty of pool parties, music festivals, BBQ's, yacht parties, rooftop ragers, and more this long weekend, right here in L.A.– check it all out in our 2012 Memorial Day Weekend Party Guide!
