The weekend is here, so get out of the house and have a blast. Not sure what to do? Here are our top five picks!
1. Ride Along
Car enthusiasts, rejoice! An impressive lineup of automobiles zooms into Newport Beach June 20-22 for one of the year’s premier events, The Russo & Steele Classic Car Auction. Motorheads will not only admire some of the world’s most luxurious sports vehicles, muscle cars and hot rods, but they’ll also have the chance to bid major bucks during the auction. It all gets going with a kickoff party on June 20 that benefits CHOC Children’s. Now that’s automagic!

2. Big Fat Greek Festival
Experience the culture of Greece June 21-23. The annual Taste of Greece Festival has it all: music, dancing, shopping and, of course, authentic cuisine. Some 11,000 armchair travelers are expected to attend, so be sure to get there early to savor the Mediterranean scene. St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church, 4949 Alton Parkway, Irvine, irvinegreekfest.com
3. Tomlin Time
On June 22, the unforgettable Lily Tomlin takes the stage in O.C. Tomlin, whom you can currently catch in ABC’s sitcom Malibu Country, is set to share her quick-witted comedic stylings and a few of her classic characters with local fans. A question-and-answer session follows her performance, so bring your best queries, and stay sharp! Segerstrom Hall, 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, 714.556.2787, scfta.org
4. Drink for Dogs
On June 23, give some love to our four-legged friends. The Wags ’n’ Wine event features vino tasting, auctions and a puppy pageant.

5. The Boz
Boz Scaggs is a living legend. He began playing with the Steve Miller Band, but soon expanded into a range of genres rooted in American history—from jazz to R&B to rock ’n’ roll. He hits the road to perform tunes from his latest studio album, Memphis, on June 23. Don’t miss the chance to hear this musical man in concert.
