-Weekend-Whaddup-Movies, Hip-Hop, Star Gazing, Shakespeare and Baseball
For those of us who have kids in the LAUSD Summer is quickly coming to a close. Next week we say adios to late bedtimes. If it were up to me and a lot of other parents I know, we’d get to keep them for a while longer, the consensus is the Tuesday after Labor Day. But this is not in the cards.
So get out there and do something fun this weekend while you can, before the homework and packing those school lunches get in the way of simply enjoying your days and nights.
Here is your Whaddup!

Bring something to sit on and whatever else makes the kids happy and be sure to come early to enjoy the KidZone that starts at 6:30 p.m.
Red Sox vs. Angels
Down in Anaheim the Red Sox will be hosted by the Angels (I can’t get myself to type the full name) with a full contingency of the famed Red Sox nation, as usual. I’ll be there myself, but not part of the nation, more of a simple onlooker with no real dog in this hunt.
Ball games are a great way to spend an evening, so bring your little one down to check out one of the games this weekend and partake of some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, you’ll thank me.
