Meghan McCarty is back with your Weekend Alibi, a roundup of the best entertainments in Southern California.

Once you've dispensed with all the champagne brunches and Mother's Day teas this Sunday, you can head on over to MOCA to see Charles Phoenix perform his one man slide show spectacular. He collects old slide shows that he picks up at vintage shops and garage sales and turns them into hilarious performances that celebrate the kitschy culture of a bygone era.

Or, you could indulge your crafty vegan cravings at The Vegan Beer and Food Festival happening this Saturday afternoon at the Roxy on the Sunset strip. It showcases the best vegan food from a handful of popular food trucks - like Mandoline Grill, Doomies home cooking and Fresh Fries. Plus they'll have unlimited tastes of vegan beers from breweries like Golden Road, Anchor and North Coast.

Or, you could check out a remastered version of Yellow Submarine. This classic animated film based on the Beatles song has been painstakingly restored frame by frame and will be screened at the Aero theater in Santa Monica tonight.
