Things to do in L.A. this weekend

50k watch the DerbyFriday: Santa Anita wins hands down this Friday. Free admission, dollar coffee, dollar beer probably reduced admission tickets for the weekend what more can you ask for? Well how about 88 degree weather and a pick six that hasn’t been won all meet meaning a pool of over $1m is likely. The post time has been put back until 2pm so as to attract more students from nearby Pasadena colleges. I love this track and their marketing.Read more here

Sat:  Cal Cup Day at Santa Anita, is a day of Breeders Cup prep races. Add to that a free t shirt with admission and you have a winner.

However, if you won the pick six on Friday you may play your luck up at the Bike’s $100 with a $75k guarantee. They made the guarantee of $20k today in the $50 buy in.

If you took down the pick six all by yourself you may want to mingle with your new neighbours in Northridge at the 4th annual Nancy Cartwright charity tournament. Held in the grounds of Nancy’s home this event includes line dancing, a song by an Osmond,Nathan and the Cody Bryant band.

After feeding the guests the poker tournament will commence.Jamie Gold and Jerry Yang are pencilled in to attend and Mary Jones is driving in from Henderson to give a boot camp. Now, Mary doesn’t usually attend charity events after she realised that it has turned into a very profitable niche market for some. The fact that she is here is a good sign. In fact the  event has made enough money for the charity(PAL) to build a 5500 sq feet centre for the area youth.

If poker isn’t your cup of tea you can try blackjack and other games. Celebrities pencilled in are Teri Hatcher, who shares my birthday, Camryn Manheim,Sinbad, Brad Garrett, Ana Alicia,Dee Dee O’Malley, Anne Archer,Stefanie Schaeffer and Tom Kenny.

Arrive anytime after 4:30pm on Saturday. Prizes include WSOP satellite seats and more details here.

    One lucky person won over $700000 on the pick six.

    I believe I saw him after the last race which produced a $63 winner.
