We’re in the thick of the summer. You know what that means: Drive-in movies, street festivals and outdoor music. This weekend, we’re listening to live jazz under urban lights; visiting Paramount, California for a dose of nostalgia; and treating our dogs to a day on the town.ir-leasing.ru
What’s better than taking a selfie in front of LACMA’s iconic “Urban Light”? How about a night of live (and free!) jazz music among the illuminated art installation? This Friday’s Jazz at LACMA features the Henry “Skipper” Franklin quintet. Franklin rose to fame in the ’60s while working with Hugh Masakela on his single, “Grazing in the Grass.”Как бороться с недобросовестными вебмастерами. Кейс
Paramount Drive-In re-opened in April after being closed for more than 20 years. It now fits 800 cars, two 75 foot screens and digital projection with FM radio sound. Grab a date and head out to this weekend’s screenings of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “The Purge: Anarchy,” and “Tammy.”
Feeling hungry? Head to the 626 Night Market in Santa Anita Park, the largest Asian themed market in the United States. Taking a cue from the popular markets in Asia, the market boasts over 200 vendors, live music, art and games.
Street festivals aren’t just for humans anymore. Make it a date with your dog at the Doggie Street Festival Sunday. There will be adoptable dogs and cats, pet book authors, free veterinarian advice, good eats and music. Bring a blanket or folding chair so you can sit on the grass and enjoy the live entertainment. Did we mention: There’s a cupcake lounge!? And that is definitely for the people.
