10 Things To Do in L.A. For Under $10 This Memorial Day Weekend [5-22-15 to 5-25-15]

Posted by

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!

If you want a more complete rundown, check Christina’s weekend roundup that was posted up yesterday morning. And of course, make sure to sign-up for our email list so you’re always in the loop on happenings around the city.
