Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…
Roaring Nights at the Los Angeles Zoo
A different kind of wildlife takes over the L.A. Zoo during this popular adults-only summer music series, featuring indie bands, DJs, full bars, and L.A.’s favorite food trucks, as well as pop-up zookeeper talks and animal encounters. (Drinks and food available for an additional cost.) In addition to being able to explore the Zoo after hours, guests can explore their own creativity, at the “Animal Artistry Paint Party.” Paint your favorite animal on a small canvas to take home as a souvenir.
