One of the finest things about living in Los Angeles is that there’s never any shortage of things to do, whatever floats your boat or gets your motor humming. Whether weeknight or weekend, there are activities year-round, from outdoor adventuring to fine dining to sporting events to one-of-a-kind cultural opportunities. For things to do, Los Angeles, read on, as we tackle another big week in the City of Angels.
Chinatown After Dark
This Thursday, April 5th, head to Chinatown for this monthly event, were you can check out the food offerings from such local favorites as Unit 120, Chego, Lao Tao, Scoops, Secret Lasagna, and many more. It’s a combination of al-fresco dining and live music, so after you’ve digested a bit, slip on your dancing shoes and boogie through the streets.
Sleepless: The Music Center After Hours
Downtown Friday night, April 6th at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Music Center will be transformed into a performance space that is fully interactive. This late night event could be just about anything. In the past, it’s been dancing and drinking in the Founder’s Room, a roller derby demo on Lower Grand, or a pillow lounge in the lobby. The unpredictability of it is what makes it so much fun. This is definitely an adult-themed event, though, so leave the kiddies at home. It’s more than likely that alcoholic beverages will be on offer.
This weekly food-focused market located in Downtown is always can’t-miss. This started in Brooklyn and has migrated to the West coast, and it’s your opportunity to try out food and retail vendor items before they become available for wider consumption. There’s plenty of free parking in a nearby garage, which is always a plus. The best idea is to come with a big group so that you can get a bunch of different food items and then everyone can have a bit of everything. It’s this Sunday, April 8th.
We’ll be back next time with more suggestions for how to get you up off the couch and experiencing the sights and sounds of LA, the gem of the Best Coast. Till next time, funky people, eat, drink, be merry, and always have a designated driver handy.
