The Meatball Shop Pop-Up
If the mere thought of Spicy Pork Sliders leaves you booking the next Virgin America flight for JFK, then rest assured, we've got good news. For one night only, New York's The Meatball Shop comes to Roy Choi's Sunny Spot in Venice for a meatball pop-up. There are no tickets or reservations, so don't dillydally en route!
When: Saturday, September 7, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Where: Sunny Spot, 822 Washington Boulevard (at Abbot Kinney Boulevard), 310-448-8884.
Boogie Nights @ Hollywood Forever
Considering the influx of porn-centric films this summer, it seems all the more relevant that we remember perhaps the best movie about porn ever — Boogie Nights. Buy ticks for yourself and your friends now, because there's no way Dirk Diggler isn't going to bring in the crowds.
When: Saturday, September 21, 8p.m.
Where: Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, 323-469-1181.

If you spent your summer away from the New England coastline, now's your chance to get your lobster roll and corn on the cob fix! The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival is the world's largest lobster fest, which means get ready for live music and some serious eating.
When: Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 15, times vary per day.
Where: 1190 Nagoya Way, San Pedro, no phone.

Blonde Redhead at El Rey Theatre
Sure, Blonde Redhead's been around forever. And, sure, they haven't released a new album in a couple years. But, there's definitely something to be said for a dreamy pop-rock band that manages to make music that always sound bitingly new (even if it isn't technically that new).
When: September 3, 8p.m.
Where: El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Boulevard, 323-936-6400.

Melancholy. Mysterious. Bizarre. Exciting. The Weeknd's magic is built on a farrago of interpretations — and we're only talking about listening to the mixtapes. Go see him live and let the bewildering awesomeness build.
When: Tuesday, September 17, 7:30 p.m.
Where: The Greek Theatre, 2700 North Vermont Avenue, 323-665-5857.

Denim Refinery Sample Sale
We've been fans of Denim Refinery's badass creativity since it first launched, so it makes sense why we're thrilled about the brand's upcoming sample sale. With goods being offered at up to 70% off, we highly suggest you get there early!
When: Saturday, September 7, 10 a.m. to 7p.m.
Where: 527 West 7th Street, Suite #808, 310-800-6135.

Considering L.A's first county fair was in 1922, it's safe to say this has become a pretty big tradition. From carnival rides to a petting zoo to gourmet cooking classes, this fair pretty much guarantees a wacky, fun time. Oh, and did we mention The Bangles are playing this year? Yep.
When: August 29 to September 30.
Where: Fairplex, 1101 West McKinley Avenue, no phone.

Nordstrom at The Americana at Brand
From the brand-new west coast Topshop outpost to the farm-to-table eatery, everything we hear about the yet-to-open Nordstrom at The Americana at Brand gets us more and more hyped. Come get a first peek of the store at the opening gala, hosted by our girl Nicole Richie.
When: Tuesday, September 17, 7p.m.
Where: Nordstrom at The Americana at Brand, 889 Americana Way, 323-543-2800.
