  • Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden
    Nestled in the historic Rancho Santa Anita—a homestead originally inhabited by the Gabrieleno Tongva tribe—Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden houses wildlife and plants from all over the globe on 127 acres. Its creators opened the Arboretum in 1947 to promote environmental awareness in a sanctuary that reflects the distinct history, flora, and culture of southern California. The grounds reflect the founders' aim—hummingbirds flutter among the colorful blooms in the Grace Kallam Perennial Garden, and wildflowers, herbs, and veggies spring to life at the hands of community volunteers in the educational Garden for All Seasons. Tropical and temperate blossoms embellish the Meyberg waterfall's sun-drenched stone face and blue-gum trees stand guard in front of the Queen Anne cottage, one of several historic sites that was constructed in 1885 to encapsulate Victorian opulence. Peacocks and great egrets strut among living plant collections, which explode into flowery canopies whenever the right garden sprites are available to aid in pollination. Members often gain exclusive access to the Arboretum's slate of events, which includes workshops, tours, Yoga in the Garden, and live music performances in the summer months. The Arboretum Summer Nights series kicks off with Steve Rushingwind on July 17, followed by Jessica Fichot on July 24, the Alumni on August 7, and closes out with Pumana on August 14. Summer camps reawaken brains that usually hibernate until September, and Bookworms Story Time captures attention year-round.

  • AMF Bowling
    "You're up." At Bowlmor locations from coast to coast, that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Glow-in-the-dark lanes complete with lane-side servers and banquette seating up the style factor on traditional games of bowling. These snazzy bowling lanes might be where the competition starts, but they're certainly not where it ends. That's because Bowlmor offers more than just bowling—laser tag, arcade games, mini golf, bocce, and even ropes courses make appearances at various Bowlmor locations across the country. Likewise, soda and chips fall by the wayside in favor of more upscale American fare and specialty cocktails.

  • Street Food Cinema
    Spanning spring through the fall, Street Food Cinema rolls out more than fifty events in eleven different locations over 27 weeks. This showcase highlights the greatest hits of the silver screen and the LA food-truck scene, as well as music from emerging music artists such as The Rebel Light. When the gates open, guests spread blankets on the grass and pop open coolers. Live bands play until dusk, when crowd-pleasing movies such as Fight Club and The Sandlot light up the big screen. Meanwhile, a rotating food-truck schedule assembles a diverse curbside lineup, which might include fresh seafood from Cousins Maine Lobster or the gooey delights of The Grilled Cheese Truck. Their events also feature movie-themed games projected on the big screen for audience participation. Street Food Cinema's eclectic assemblage of food, music, and films has picked up attention beyond the park's bounds, snagging mentions on NBC4, We Like LA, and The Washington Post. Other videos of the events in action can be seen here. It's also become known for its philanthropic work: each year the organization supports several charities.
