Get your grill on at the Rainbow Lagoon in Longbeach and enjoy the best barbecue in the country.

HUSHcast: Hollywood – Late Night Laggers VS. L.A.M.P.
If silent disco isn’t on your bucket list you either a) haven’t updated it in a long, long time, or b) just don’t know what one is! If you’re the latter, let us fill you in: this dance party includes a DJ spinning the best tunes, but instead of blaring music combined with deafening ambient noise, attendees are provided with wireless headphones to listen with! HUSHconcerts are dedicated to “innovative experiences in unique settings” and reaching more diverse audiences. So skip the post-club headache and yelling between songs and take in the latest and greatest club phenomenon.
