Before we get into the best stuff to do this weekend, a public service announcement is in order: the voting system in LA has changed for this primary election, which means that even though the official election is this Tuesday, you can vote RIGHT NOW, at any voting center in LA. That means if you want to complain about whatever decisions our government makes, you’ve got to get out and play a part in the process -- so make a plan today, or tomorrow, or Monday, or Tuesday, to let your voice be heard. OK? OK. And also, here’s a bunch of great stuff to do this weekend, including an unexpected weed-and-food collab, an excuse to hit the slopes, and a brand new brunch from a Michelin-starred chef. Get out there. And vote!
Friday, February 28-The end of the year
Connie & Ted’s (West Hollywood)
If you’d heard a few years ago that one of the most famous, Michelin-starred chefs in LA would be giving his diners a discount for smoking some of the sticky-icky before going to eat at his restaurants, you’d have called whomever told you that news totally crazy. Well, it’s crazy no more: Michael Cimarusti is discounting 10% off your bill at his New England-ish seafood restaurant Connie & Ted’s all year if you present your server with a same-day receipt from the Med Men dispensary right across the street from his restaurant. The future is now.

South Bay Pavillion (Carson)
Vendors like Hawkins’ Burgers, All Flavor No Grease, and Mr Fries Man will be on-hand at this Black History Month-inspired food-and-craft market, which aims to highlight “amazing minority businesses, especially those that sell delicious, unique food.” Seems like they hit the nail on the head.
