The very brave Alex Libby from "Bully"

I didn’t think anyone was religiously following my top weekend picks until I got numerous emails and Facebook messages when it didn’t post yesterday. Thanks guys! Apologies for being a day late, but I had a really good reason. More after the jump!

We attended a screening of the documentary “Bully,” which follows the lives of 5 bullied teens from 2009-2010. It was brutal, honest and very moving and I encourage everyone to go see it. This is a must see for parents, kids and anyone interested in changing the caustic tone of our culture.

Where else will you have the opportunity to visit over 150 galleries in one day? Just off L.A.’s 5 Freeway, the Brewery ArtWalk offers visitors a chance to experience the world’s largest artist-in-residence compound. “We have the Burning Man crowd showing in museums, and then there are people like architects and furniture craftsmen,” says Claudia Endler, a jewelry designer who has lived at the 23-acre Brewery Art Colony for 10 years. Her advice: “It’s a big place, so bring your map!”
