Over the holidays, we had to hear some friends and family at home wondering why Los Angeles is so great. We think one of the best things about LA is the variety it has to offer. The events we’ve found and shared with you on our Events Calendar are all over the place, and we’ll be darned if you can’t find an event that interests you. We’ve found everything from beer festivals to art shows to music events.
