Los Angeles is essentially a giant playground for adults -- some call it Peter Pan Syndrome, others call it a killer weekend. Of course there’s no need to act your age when you’ve got events like an all-dessert food festival, augmented reality dance parties, and a live video game orchestra to look forward to. It’s all going down this upcoming three-day weekend, and even if you’re one of the unfortunates who doesn’t have Monday off, that’s no excuse not to let loose.
