New Ways to Experience LA, Dot Com Style
LAist has recently discovered the website Experience LA, and we want to pass on the word. They hail themselves as the "definitive Cultural Information Portal for the greater LA area," merging cultural events and happenings around the city with information on using public transportation to get you there. Today, for example, we could win tickets to MOCA's Visual Music Installation or the Museum of the American West's production of Kino and Theresa. We could also attend tonight's LA Chamber Orchestra's Conversations event and have a glass of wine (included with ticket price) and some conversation before the evening's performance at Zipper Hall. Tomorrow we could skip work and attend Fifty-two Miles Downstream, a critical discussion about the history of the Los Angeles River hosted by the Southern California Institute of Architecture, and wrap up the night by seeing acclaimed mystery author Walter Mosley's The Literary Life at CalTech's Beckman Auditorium, for absolutely free. And all this can be accomplished without our car! Well, thanks, Experience LA. Let no one say there's nothing intellectual going on in this town.
