The weather has been playing games all week, from hot and sunny to overcast and cold and we are ready for a solid stretch of sunshine. Still, it is Los Angeles and that means the weather change is hardly a reason to cancel plans outdoors or otherwise! There is a lot going on in the city this weekend so read to see what we have listed for your L.A. Weekender:
The Chainsmokers: “But first, let me take a selfie.” The duo who brought the “Selfie” song to the airwaves are giving a free performance at Universal City Walk today at 3:30 p.m. as part of the EXTRA television segment hosted by Mario Lopez and Maria Menounos.
