Weekend Docket: 6/1/12

It's beginning to look a lot like summer... well that and they finally finished re-doing the pool in my building.  Hurray! When I'm not spending time by the pool, I'll be doing a little Stand Up Paddleboarding & Drinking with Living Social Adventures, hitting up a few parties & probably watching my nerd boyfriend play video games. 

But enough about me, what are you all doing this weekend?? I want to hear all about your weekend plans too! Leave em in the comments below :).  And as always... if you want to connect, you can follow me on twitter @nicolemiizuka or find me on Facebook!

Friday, 6/1
National Donut Day
All Day
Today is National Donut Day! Whether it’s powdered, jelly-filled, or frosted, this classic treat is always delicious, making National Donut Day a great reason to celebrate. Tell friends and family about this unique holiday with a free Donut Day eCard! Did you know that National Donut Day began as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army in 1938? It is celebrated annually on the first Friday of June, and honors all the female volunteers who served donuts to soldiers behind the front lines during World War I. To celebrate Donut Day 2012, Krispy Kreme will be giving away a free donut to every customer (no purchase necessary). At Dunkin’ Donuts, customers will receive a free donut with any beverage purchase. Be sure to check your local and regional donut shops for special promotions as well! In honor of National Donut Day, pick up a freshly baked donut or buy a box to share with friends, family, and coworkers!

Cinespia Screening: Lolita
Gates 7pm, Movie 8:30pm
Kubrick's adaptation of the famous Nabokov novel is a scathingly funny comedy classic.

Sue Lyon is radiant and spiteful as the teenage Lolita and James Mason is pitch perfect as the vulnerable yet deadly Professor Humbert who falls in love with her.The script dances around the censor board with witty double meanings, innuendo and characteristically dark humor. Peter Sellers is hilarious as Quilty, wearing various disguises in his efforts to harangue Professor Humbert. DJ Turquoise Wisdom spins before and after the screening Gates open 7pm, movie 8:30pm. Tickets: $10. Hollywood Forever, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles
