    EXPERIENCE: SB Open Streets
    If CicLAvia, yoga classes, skateboarding, salsa dancing, and a street fest had a happy baby this would be it. Two miles of Santa Barbara’s Cabrillo Boulevard are shut down to cars for a people takeover of this beachside street. Bring your kids. Bring your dog. Bring a smile. http://sbopenstreets.org/

    DO: Lit Crawl LA
    The NoHo Arts District becomes a choose-your-own literary adventure experience with dozens of restaurants, theaters, galleries, and bars hosting literary events. From readings to performances, it will be an entirely walkable night. Don’t forget your tweed jacket and scarf! http://litcrawl.org/la
  4. 4.
    EAT: Colonia Publica
    Jonathan Gold thinks you should eat at this restaurant, which is mostly focused on two things: micheladas (spicy beer) and fideo (fried noodles in Mexican broth). As the clouds roll in over Los Angeles, it’s time to focus on deep, satisfying broths and hearty soups. http://blogs.kcrw.com/goodfood/2015/10/jonathan-gold-talks-fideo-at-colonia-publica/
  5. 5.
    SEE: Dusk-To-Dawn Horrorthon!
    Find a seat and a partner’s arm to dig your nails into for hours upon hours of scary sh*t! Creepshow, Gargoyles, The Thing, The Night of a Thousand Cats, The Deadly Spawn, Basket Case, Zombie Holocaust...okay, it’s funny too. It’s happening at the Aero Theater (with free food and surprises). http://www.americancinemathequecalendar.com/content/9th-annual-dusk-to-dawn-horrorthon
