Things To Do

10 Things To Do in L.A. For Under $10 This Weekend [1-15-16 to 1-17-16]

January 15, 2016 by Brian Champlin

As you probably already know we do a twice-weekly rundown of our favorite to-dos and happenings around Los Angeles (pushed out Monday AM and Thursday AM).

However, it occurs to me that sometimes event-seekers just want stuff that’s down-and-dirty, cheap-and-easy. With that in mind, here are 10 quick ideas for this weekend each costing less than $10 that might be good to keep on your radar.


Events are listed for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (January 15, 2016 to January 17, 2016) in descending order from most to least expensive.
