If I were you this weekend: Land of the free

This is one of those weekends in Los Angeles were there are a flood of events. It is hard to decide what to do on weekends like this. Why couldn’t some of these events be spread out to another weekend when there isn’t much going on? This happens a lot in Los Angeles. It is all or nothing, or rather great publicity or not so great. It is even harder to decide this weekend because all of these events are FREE. The plus side is that you can attend all of these events in dowtown Los Angeles (DTLA).

Free Museum Day-Saturday, January 31st

Twenty area musuems are opening their doors for free tomorrow. Click the link for the press release with participating musuems. Note that if you are itching to see the Japanese Samurai exhibit at LACMA before it closes on Sunday, that is not a part of the freeness, but the general collection is.

Night on BroadwayР Saturday, January 31st

There is a movement to turn a part of Broadway Avenue in DTLA to a pedestrian friendly/only area. This night will be a preview of what that that vision would be like. Personally I am all for it. Tomorrow night will also open up the movie theater district that was once the home of silent and talkie premiers in the 1920s-40s that you don’t usually get to see unless you purchase tickets to the L.A. Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats. (I will talk more about my love for the L.A. Conservancy in my upcoming post)
