10 Under Things To Do in L.A. For Under $10 This Weekend [9-25-15 to 9-27-15]

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 (and yes, I realize this week we went over budget by $0.50 on the top list item… but we thought it was worth it!).
