Unfortunately, I’ll be outta town this weekend but look at all the fun things L.A. has in store for you: lots of sales from designer wear to vintage clothes, a double scoop of Bruce Campbell and an ice cream bike ride!

Halloween Drive-In: Evil Dead I and II at Angel City Drive-In
What better way to watch horror movies than at a drive-in theater? And the campiest scary movies of all? Evil Dead I and II. Evil Dead II is my one of my favorite horror movies ever with some of the best lines. “Give me back my haaaannnd!” Enjoy food from Weeneez and tunes from DJ Morgan. Car hops will also be on hand to bring food and popcorn right to your car/bike. And you can BYOB, “they see nothing.” Reserve your parking spot asap before they all sell out. Or you can walk or bike in.
- 6:30pm. $30 per car, $10 per walk/bike in. 529 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles.
Lights Out Los Angeles
If you’re not going out on Saturday night, participate in Lights Out LA. Cuddle up with your honey on the couch, break open a bottle of wine and turn out all the lights for an hour. Lights Out LA is a city- and countywide energy conservation event that invites Angelenos to turn off all lights for an hour. Doing so saves about 15 percent of energy on an average Saturday night. Remember to also install a compact fluorescent light bulb for long-lasting energy saving.
- 8-9pm. Your place.
Sunday, October 21
Ready, Steve? Uh huh. Andy? Yeahhh. Mick? OK. All right, fellas! Let’s gooo! Rock out this swap meet and art mart for the perfect missing element to your Halloween getup. They’ve got lots of vintage clothes, sample sale clothing, crafts, and art to peruse. DJs, drinks and raffles keep things buzzing.
- 12pm-6pm. La Cita’s El Patio, 336 S. Hill Street, Downtown.
Series 101: Desserts
Remember what I was just saying about Providence’s dessert menu? Well now you can take a dessert-making class with pastry chef Adrian Vasquez and learn his sweet secrets. Sure, it’s $150 for a 2 1/2-hour class but if you’re a foodie you’ll love learning how to make L.A.’s best desserts from one of the best. Reserve your spot now as there are only 20 available in this monthly class.
- 11am. $150. Providence, 5955 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles. (323) 460-4170.
4th Annual Bicycle Sundae
Damn, this sounds like right up my alley. A bike ride/ice cream shop hop! Join the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition as they guide you and your friends on a nice leisurely bike ride from East Hollywood’s Scoops to Silver Lake’s Pazzo Gelato to Little Tokyo for Mikawaya mochi. It’s a 12-mile trip but on a mostly flat route and at a casual pace. So bring your bike helmet, bike lock and ample ice cream money. If you become an LACBC member, you get treated to a free scoop of ice cream.
- 12pm-4pm. Free, but buy your own ice cream. 712 N. Heliotrope, Los Angeles.
