March comedy madness

Friday, April 12

 For those who did not pick the Louisville Cardinals, it’s time you stopped crying over the remains of your March Madness bracket. Instead, find something to laugh about by attending the final championship “match” of the March Comedy Madness tournament hosted by comedian Josh Filipowski.The competition, which began with 64 comedians, has narrowed the playing field down to the final four comedians who will face off on Friday. Audience participation determines the winner, so at least in this playoff you have more power to determine who will be the last comedian standing.Downtown Burbank Arts Festival

Saturday, April 13, at 10 a.m. to Sunday, April 14 at 5 p.m.

 Just “chalk” it up to good taste. Super-sized artwork will be brought to life by some of SoCal’s most talented chalk artists on the city streets of Downtown Burbank this weekend as a part of downtown Burbank’s Arts Festival. The event will feature 90 regional artists from various media who will be displaying work ranging from sculpture to photography.

A celebration of design and architecture

Rushing around Downtown, it’s easy to take the unique and rustic architecture of Los Angeles for granted. But with this combined walk and panel event, participants will have the chance to walk around Culver City and listen to leaders in L.A.’s museum and culinary scene. Panelists include Sang Yoon, owner of Father’s Office, as well as Evan Kleiman, host of “Good Food” on KRCW. Get hungry and get educated on L.A. architecture!
