Things To Do

10 Under Things To Do in L.A. For Under $10 This Weekend [10-9-15 to 10-11-15]

October 9, 2015 by Brian Champlin

As you probably already know we do a twice weekly listing 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 in descending order from most to least expensive.

Follow the links for more info!

Hands up! #ArcadeNights is here. Join us tonight for our launch party with The HUMP @ 10PM.
