I LIKE TO DO THE THINGS I LIKE TO DO.
And if you too like to do things, then maybe you should check out one of the following, 4 Best Bet JACK-Tivities of this weekend (Oct.31st-Nov.2nd 2014)
A couple hundred thousand people descend upon the streets of West Hollywood every year for their Halloween carnival and with it falling on a Friday this year expect it to be kicked up a couple notches. Parking is going to suck a golf ball thru a garden hose but Friday night should be a blast in WeHo. Have bail money ready.

Saturday Nov.1st and Sunday Nov.2nd@ Santa Anita Park
Not that the turtle races at Brennan’s in Marina Del Rey aren’t cute, but if you want real racing action in SoCal you need to go to Santa Anita Park. This weekend is the weekend to do it with the 2014 Breeders Cup going down on Saturday and Sunday. And please, no Sarah Jessica Parker jokes… they’ve been done enough. Besides Tori Spelling looks way more like a horse than SJP ever did.

Saturday, Nov.1st @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery– Noon-Midnight
Listen up gringos, since you stole this land from its native peoples the least you could do is learn about and experience some of their holidays and celebrations. Hollywood Forever’s Dia De Los Muertos festivities are vibrant, colorful, and way more culturally relevant than anything that happens on Columbus Day or any other of them white-people holidays you guys love so much. And before you fire up the “I’m offended e-mail machine,” just know I’m a cracker from North Carolina and, domestically speaking, it doesn’t get any more gringo-y than that.
