Weekend Docket: 6/8/12

Oh right, it's Gay Pride Parade weekend.  GO OUT. HAVE FUN. PLEASE DON'T DO STUPID THINGS ON MY STREET & CAUSE MAJOR TRAFFIC ISSUES!  (I live right on the parade route...) Thanks!  As much fun as I have annually at the Pride Parade, this year I'll be skipping it to volunteer some good charity time for Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation event :).  Other than that & seeing Prometheus (yes I'm terrified, but am still seeing it) this should be a relatively tame weekend.

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!

The Inaugural LA Cocktail Classic will take place June 8th at the gorgeous Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.

Saturday, 6/9
Malibu Beer Festival
1pm - 5pm
At $25 a pop for this boozy fest, doesn't sound like there's anything you could do wrong. Fun, sun, beer & bites, this Saturday in the sun sounds like a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Still, you should probably arrange for all the beer. Hit the Malibu Inn’s beer fest, and your ticket gets you endless samplings of whatever you want—they’ve got about 20 options. Just to be safe. $25, Malibu Inn, 22969 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu http://www.malibubeerfestival.com/
