While it may not feel quite like spring yet, warmer days are definitely on their way. In the meantime, there’s no reason to stay cooped up in the house until spring has sprung, so get out and have some fun at one (or all) of the great events L.A. has lined up this March. From an Office bar crawl to a “Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate” event, there’s something going on for everyone.
Ok, so hopefully you’re old enough to remember this movie. If not, there’s never been a better time to see it. Maybe you know someone who reminds you of “the babe?” Be sure to drag them to the Vista Theatre for the screening of Jim Henson’s 1986 cult classic. Once you’ve satisfied your craving for awesome ’80s movies, follow up the 10:30am showing with a hot breakfast and maybe some shopping!
Cruise a few hours east to Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Southern California’s beautiful Coachella Valley and enjoy the critically acclaimed tennis landscape. This is the largest event outside of the four Grand Slams and is the “most-attended WTA Premier Mandatory and ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tennis tournament in the world,” according to BNPParibasOpen.com. If you’re a tennis fan, you don’t want to miss this.
Join wineLA for a two-hour class that’s to be held at DTLA’s Loft 218, where you’ll enjoy sampling five gourmet kinds of cheese, five decadent chocolates, and ten delicious wines. This event is a must-attend for the over 21 crowd because if just the name is perfect, the event itself is going to be fabulous.
PaleyFest is the premier TV festival in the U.S.; it’s a must-attend event that gets you up close to the talented actors and actresses behind your favorite TV shows. This year’s event suggests sneak-peek episodes and discussions with the case of Rupaul’s Drag Race, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. But what really makes this a can’t-miss event is the Parks and Recreation ten-year anniversary reunion. This event is sure to be packed with your favorite TV stars!
Held at the exquisite Walt Disney Concert Hall, Yoko Ono’s 60-plus-year career will be celebrated. Ono’s art and music are to be performed by a number of special guests, and you’re sure to do at least one (maybe all) of the verbs in the event’s title.
BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH is named for Ono’s Dance Piece X, a Fluxus score that commands the performer to
and move between

March 23-September 1
“Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power” is an exhibit that aims to shine an intense light on the significant contributions made by African-American artists over two decades, beginning in 1963 at the height of the civil rights movement and ending in 1983.
The Broad is the final stop for this impressive showcase, which debuted at London’s Tate Modern. Each of the works is from black artists in response to the Black Power, Black Feminism, or Civil Rights movements.
This free event inspires artistic exploration, with open artist studios, art galleries, live music, workshops, and gift shop access. The event is free and open to all ages, held at the Santa Monica airport. The Spitfire Grill and a host of food trucks will be on hand to feed the flocks of hungry art-lovers.
Also known as the “That’s What She Said Trivia Bar Crawl,” the event will be held in Downtown L.A., leaving from L.A. Biergarten at 750 S. Broadway at 4 pm. Enjoy testing the limits of your Office fandom during this trivia night/bar crawl, and try to answer as many show-related questions as you can (between drinks, of course).
A new year means a new team (hopefully). After yet another soul-crushing World Series defeat, the Dodgers start their run at redemption again. First in line? Arizona’s Diamondbacks.
The United Kingdom-born showcase is back, and it’s bringing a penchant for lesser-known artists plus live tattooing, taxidermy classes, and absinthe bars. And you can see it all at the Reef’s Magic Box. While you’re there, keep your eyes peeled for 2019’s guest artist, an L.A. tattoo legend: Mister Cartoon.
No matter which event you choose to attend (all of them?), you’re sure to have a grand time. Let us know in the comments about any L.A. events happening in March that we may have missed.
