Part of what we do at We Like L.A. every single 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 muddle 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 sort of a cheat-sheet for saving a couple bucks in L.A. over the next few weeks.
[REMINDER: In some cases We Like L.A. does receive revenue when visitors click on ticket links and make purchases, however we maintain complete editorial control over the events we suggest. Basically, it only makes it on to the website if we think it is cool!]
