Find your Harry or Hermione at Harry Potter Night Cosplaying is encouraged (but not essential) at this nerd-friendly takeover of Dave & Busters (isn’t every night a nerd-friendly takeover of Dave & Busters? I digress). Anyways, there’ll be a Potter fan-fic film, as well as a nerd band, and $10 all-you-can-play games.

Party like an adult at the first Arroyo Seco festival This new festival from Goldenvoice clearly skews a bit older than Coachella, with Tom Petty and Mumford & Sons headlining and no EDM anywhere on the lineup. Food wise, of course, it’s been knocked out of the park: options include order-ahead picnic baskets from Kogi, Fat Dragon, and Sweetfin, as well as in-park food from Neal Fraser and Walter Manzke.

Get down island-style at the Hollywood Carnival Organizers call this the largest Caribbean-style music event in LA, which means soca beats and sexy people breaking it down. In addition to the fest proper, there are side events all over LA if your butt needs even more excuses to shake.

Learn some life lessons at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp OK, it’s less a camp than a big beer festival, so don’t expect any Color Wars. But, you definitely may establish a crush on someone if you follow them around while they’re tasting craft beers, checking out reggae from The Expanders, and eating Downtown Dogs. Maybe they’ll even make you a friendship bracelet!
