10 Things To Do in L.A. For Under $10 This Weekend [5-6-16 to 5-8-16]

May 6, 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, fun ideas for this weekend each costing less than $10 that might be good to keep on your radar.

For all prices listed we’ll generally note the true cost including any service fees, as sometimes is the case with our ticket-affiliate partner Goldstar.
