10 Things To Do in L.A. For $10 or Less This Weekend [9-16-16 to 9-18-16]

September 16, 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 us 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 $10 and under, 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.
