It’s been a long work week and according to the folks that watch the skies, it’s gonna be quite a warm next few days. You can bed down in some air-conditioning and avoid the sun, or you can throw caution to the wind and sweat it out. The trade off is there it’s tough to make some memories being lazy on the couch. Here is a rundown of the spots to get to so you have a winner of a weekend.

Kevin Hart “What Now” Tour
The Forum
3900 W Manchester Blvd
Inglewood, CA 90305
(310) 330-7300
www.whatnowtour.com

There is a certain caliber of comedian that can command an arena stage and with an impressive roster of movies and television appearances, Kevin Hart is at the top of his game. Hart is currently in the thick of a world tour that extends well into 2016 with stops in places that some people would find difficult to announce. The “What Now” tour is a potent blend of observational humor and Hart’s down-to-Earth approach with his celebrity. The show starts at 7pm, but make sure to get there early!

USC vs. Standford
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
3911 S Figueroa St
Los Angeles, CA 90037
(213) 747-7111
www.lacoliseum.com

Despite the thermometer suggesting otherwise, we are quickly approaching fall. While Southern California is missing professional football, between USC and UCLA, our collegiate program always ranks among the best in the nation. An institution among sports in general, a USC football game at the Los Angeles Coliseum is a right of passage for any Angeleno. This weekend, Tommy Trojan and the squad take on Stanford in a rivalry game that is always a barnburner. California pride is on the line. Head down to the LA Coliseum, take in a tailgate with Trojan fans and root for the home team! Game time is at 5pm.

Cinespia Screening – Carrie
Hollywood Forever Cemetery
6000 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90038
(323) 469-1181
www.hollywoodforever.com

The cinephiles working at Cinespia consistently curate some of the most inventive screenings for moviegoers anywhere. They have become a brand for developing a complete cinematic experience. This weekend, the 1976, Brian De Palma directed, Stephen King adaptation of Carrie is on deck. While the film indulges in the creepy enough, the screening takes place on the grounds of Hollywood Forever Cemetery. With food trucks and DJs playing tunes before and after the film, the moody is very celebratory no doubt, but the infamous prom scene under the stars in amid gravestones sounds especially chilly.

The Inaugural Michelada Invitational
Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet
13963 Alondra Blvd
Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670
(562) 921-4359

If you’ve ever cruised down the interstate 5 just south of 605, the iconic drive-in movie theatre marquee has caught your attention. The former home of drive in cinema has since become one of Southern California’s most frequented swap meets and entertainment destinations. Aside from that, they crank a lot of beer too. Embracing a distinctly Southern California phenomenon, The Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet issued an open casting call to see which bartender, chef, mixologist has the best michelada recipe for it’s inaugural Michelada Invitational. With all the creative freedom of a bloody mary, vodka is swapped out for beer, with the accoutrements being limitless. Complete with live music and some shopping naturally, it’s time to get your bloody beer on.
