Forage for your food
Find up-for-grabs fruit, berries and other edibles throughout the city with Fallen Fruit's maps, showing trees that grow on (or overhang) public property—which means the goods are free for the taking.
Go for a morning walk through this 1,600-acre park—including a five-acre rose garden. This delightful tribute to the horticultural magic of Southern California includes more than 600 varieties of camellia (these are best seen between the middle of February and early May, when there are around 34,000 of the plants in bloom). There are also lilac, orchid, fern and California native plant areas, as well as a tea house donated by the Japanese-American community. The gardens host yoga classes amid the greenery. Have lunch at the Cafe and then peruse the gift shop for botany-related books and trinkets to inspire your own garden.
McCabe's Guitar Shop first opened its doors in 1958 and has since hosted an incredible list of performers. Past shows have included sets by Jeff Buckley, Cat Power, REM, Etta James, Tom Waits, T-Bone Burnett and Joni Mitchell, to name just a fraction of the talent that's played here.
Having a little film knowledge is practically a prerequisite for living in LA. Take a film class at the Echo Park Film Center and be a novice no more. Learn digital editing, documentary filmmaking, even stop-motion animation. Already know your stuff? Volunteer to teach adult or neighborhood youth/senior classes.
The Grammy Museum may sound like a tourist trap, but its exhibits are top notch. Highlights this season include Good Vibrations: 50 Years of The Beach Boys, featuring handwritten lyric sheets, early family photos and high school yearbooks, as well as the original surfboard featured on the Surfin' Safari album cover; and Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston, boasting stage costumes, rare photographs and tour books.
Take a comedy workshop at Groundlings Improv School. If laughing at jokes (not making them) is more your thing, check out one of the sketch comedy improv acts. Alumni who got their start on the Groundlings stage include Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, Kathy Griffin, Jon Lovitz, Will Forte and more.
On the same site as the awe-inspiring Watts Towers themslves, the Center offers (often free) classes in music, dance and visual arts. There's also a rotating gallery of art and instruments on display, if the towers aren't feast enough for your eyes. Call 213-847-4646 or email email@example.com for class info.
