Thursday, October 10: 

“Big Fat Dick” at Fubar.  Mario Diaz hosts the infamous night where pretty much anything goes.  The Go Go dancers serve up beefcake and don’t be surprised if you get dick slapped walking by!  LOL!  They even have a  big dick contest where contestants go in the back room and take pics of their junk that is then hung on a close line so the audience can choose their favorite.  A real one of a kind experience!


Rhea Litre hosts “Guys Gone Wild” at The Abbey.  This is arguably the best night to head to The Abbey, that is if you want to experience The Abbey as a gay bar.   (weekends are invaded by bus loads of straight folks)

Friday, October 11:

Lombardi Ranch:

A gorgeous remote, rural setting, nestled in a ring of rolling hills with a sprawl of 10,000 or so pumpkins, Canyon Country landmark Lombardi Ranch’s annual Pumpkin Festival never fails to deliver plenty of seasonal kicks and idyllic, agrarian atmosphere. Proprietors of a working, family-owned farm for some 70 years, the Lombardis grow corn, tomatoes, peppers, squashes, melons and, natch, a wide, wild selection of pumpkins and fabulously grotesque gourdes. On the weekends there’s live country, R&B, zydeco and even high school marching bands. There’s also the requisite petting zoo and kiddie train ride, a fair selection of food, antique fire and police vehicles, larger-than-life Fiberglas jack o’lanterns and a haystack pyramid upon which a ceaseless tide of delighted juveniles ceaselessly swarms. But the real draw here is Scarecrow Alley, where 100 or more handmade examples of the strawmen are erected throughout the Lombardis’ massive cornfield. There’s a competition (adult and kid divisions), and the results are invariably bizarre and spectacular. If you want some pure Americana, hoss, here’s where you’ll find it. 29527 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus; Daily, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., through October (early closing Oct. 31); free. (661) 296-8697,

LACMA:  James Turrell: A Retrospective:

 Explores nearly fifty years in the career of James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles), a key artist in the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 1960s and 70s. The exhibition includes early geometric light projections, prints and drawings, installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, and recent two-dimensional work with holograms. One section is devoted to the Turrell masterwork in process, Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape just outside Flagstaff, Arizona, presented through models, plans, photographs, and films.

5905 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-City; Mon., Tues., Thurs., 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fri., 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; through April 6; $15. (323)
