Night at the (Los Angeles County) Museum (of Art)

Good news art lovers! The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is free every day (closed on Wednesday) after 5 PM as part of their "Pay What You Wish Program." Check the website for hours and details, but the museum stays open until at least 8 PM each evening, giving you plenty of time to peruse their collection. You must get a ticket from the kiosk before wandering around the museum.

Also, on the second Tuesday of each month, general admission to the permanent galleries and non-ticketed exhibitions is free to all. This means today people!

Parking is $7 in the 6th Street garage, but free after 7 PM.

And how could I forget?! LACMA also offers free Wi-Fi. Does it get much better?

The Stand

On Monday nights The Stand offers $1 Hot Dogs from 5 PM until closing time. You'll need to enroll in their "StandCard" member program but the perks are certainly worth it. If you want a fully loaded dog, be prepared to pay $2.50 a piece.

They have four locations to serve you: Century City, Encino, Westwood Village, and Woodland Hills.

Visit The Stand website here.

Deals Down Under

Have some dough for a trip? The Practical Traveler at The NY Times suggests Australia. The American dollar is strong there and the cost of airfare is dropping.

Read all about it here: "Deals Where Summer Is Winter"

Another One from The Parker Palm Springs

Boho Happy Hour

The BoHo restaurant replaces Charcoal at the Arclight Hollywood Theatre Complex. Stop in Monday thru Thursday from 4 pm - 7 pm for half price draft beer and pizza. These deals are available at the bar and in the main dining room. I favor the Margherita pizza, but the Bianca is worth a try as well. Both are delicious and large enough to share with a friend.

For Those With Kids

At IHOP kids eat free on Tuesday and Thursday from 4 pm - 9 pm. For each adult entree purchased, receive a free kid's entree for those 12 and under. See your local IHOP restaurant for additional details.

Funny Face's for everyone!
