Meghan McCarty brings you the Weekend Alibi, a roundup of the best entertainments in Southern California ... so if anyone asks you on Monday morning where you were over the weekend, you'll have something good to tell them.

Plus, you can eat and drink your way through downtown L.A. at the World Gyoza Championship at Little Tokyo's Nisei Week or the L.A.
