Part of what we do at We Like L.A. every week is scout for free events, food deals, event discounts, and pretty much any other kind of information that may save our readers some money when they’re out exploring Los Angeles.

Things can get a little muddled when trying to sort through it all, but we figured it would be nice to organize the best of what we’re finding and share that info as a single, weekly, ongoing list with our readers.


So here it is!

Consider this your cheat-sheet for saving a few dollars in and around Los Angeles for the next few weeks.

Hope it helps.
