What Would Shirju Do? June 14, 2018

0

This is your sneak preview of events and shows happening in Los Angeles for the upcoming week! No FOMO, no problem.

I’m sick of people telling me, “Omg, I wish I knew about this, I would have gone!” My motto is to live in the moment and don’t let any opportunities slip. FOMO means “fear of missing out,” and I’m an avid sufferer. My solution? Don’t miss the event!

Los Angeles is the city where people flock to chase their dreams, make something of themselves, and display their unique talents. With that comes an endless array of options, from live music to art to exclusive industry events to movies to all things cannabis (our favorite), and it’s up to you to join in on the festivities.

I live by the “you can sleep when you’re dead” mantra. Come explore the best California has to offer with me and let’s live life to the fullest.

Each event is ranked 1 to 5 on their respective resistance to weed, with 1 being the most difficult to sneak your stash in with you. Yes, we acknowledge public consumption is not allowed. But if you’ve ever gone to a concert, you know it’s around regardless, so we’re trying to help you be discreet about it if you’re going to join that crowd.
