Be a good human, roll down to Pasadena and roll up hundreds of burritos with Burrito Project—a nonprofit that’s been gathering like-minded do-gooders to feed the homeless in LA since 2009. Burrito Project folds quesadillas and wraps burritos for the city’s disenfranchised as well as hosts charity fundraisers like poker nights and more. Too short notice? The Burrito Project heats up tortillas every third Thursday of the month.

SoFar’s pop-up live music events are kind of like playing spin the bottle in your dreams, where all of the potential candidates are tens. Hosted in unorthodox locations (living rooms, warehouses, etc) throughout LA, almost every night of the week SoFar hosts a secret music show. You won’t know the artist until you get there. The only catch? Tickets are based on a lottery system, a pay-what-you-will deal or guarantee a seat by paying $20 in advance.

With the Olympics just around the corner, we can hardly wait for our quadrennial interest in trackstars to pick up where it left off.

Plus, there will be lots of live music by artists Rachel Platten, the Carlos and Salvador Santana Band and more. If more extreme athletes are your speed, check out the skater-centric Dew Tour in Long Beach this weekend from July 22 - 24.
