And since it's Los Angeles, our summers start early! With May comes the return of Summers Off the 405, and the series kicks off with the Dum Dum Girls and a DJ set from Neil Schield of Origami Vinyl (LAist Interview).You can make the most of your visit by including a "Spotlight after Dark" tour in the galleries, which last 20 minutes and depart at 6 and 7 p.m. A cash bar serves Getty-tinis and other beverages, and you can dine at The Restaurant or the Garden Terrace Cafe (heads up to picnickers, the central garden is under renovation, so there's a bit less space until it re-opens in late spring). Oh, and one more heads up from the Getty: Please be aware that construction on the 405 might affect your drive. Check Metro's Twitter feed for updates.
