Time to bust out the booze and party hats—it's not just another day, it's [insert made-up city holiday here]! We took it upon ourselves to designate some city celebrations (and gathered up a few that actually exist, both locally and nationally) so that you'll always have an excuse to toast to LA. Cheers!
