The best things to do in Los Angeles this week

The best things to do in Los Angeles this week

If we could write the rules of living in Los Angeles this would be our No. 1, always at the top of our list: When you live in this city, there’s no excuse for boredom just because it’s a weeknight. There are hundreds of things to do in Los Angeles each week, whether you hit the beach at sunset or go for a morning bike ride, or catch a concert or a comedy show—and that’s really only scratching the surface. Well, we don’t make the rules, but we will provide you with plenty of ideas for your next free weeknight right here. Now go out and tackle these things to do in L.A. this week.

Here’s how to watch the Coachella 2024 live stream

Here’s how to watch the Coachella 2024 live stream

We’re here to assuage your music festival FOMO: While Coachella attendees stand shoulder-to-shoulder in a dusty field, you have the luxury of watching those same sets while curled up on your couch in a pair of pajamas. You can tune into the Coachella live stream from the comfort of your own home and watch most of the action. Here’s everything you need to know. Where can I watch the Coachella live stream? For the second year in a row, Coachella will again stream live from six stages of the fest—double the number of channels compared to previous fests—and across both weekends. New this year, if you’re watching via the YouTube app on your TV, you’ll be able to pull up a multiview option with streams from four stages at once (though audio from only one at a time, otherwise that’d be chaos). To tune in, head to the Coachella channel on any device starting at 4pm PDT on Friday, April 12 through Sunday night, April 14, and again from Friday, April 19 through Sunday night, April 21. We’ve embedded all six channels below, as well as the schedule for each.

The 12 best things to do in Palm Springs

The 12 best things to do in Palm Springs

Easily the most jet-setting desert oasis around, Palm Springs sprouted into a resort destination in the early 20th century. Ever since, the California city has been beckoning visitors with its arid landscape, golf courses, handsome mid-century vacation homes and increasingly excellent restaurant scene. While many will devote their entire stay to simply lounging by hotel pools (make no mistake, we encourage doing plenty of that), there are indeed other things to do in Palm Springs. The area also caters to the adventurous and energetic, especially winter and springtime hikers looking for opportunities to get up into the mountains or explore craggy desert rock formations. Seasonally, it becomes the epicenter of cool during Coachella and hosts highlights like the design-focused Modernism Week. The scorching heat keeps things pretty quiet in the summer, but no matter the time of year you can embark on historic home tours, visit botanical gardens and maybe even see some snow on a one-of-a-kind tram ride.

Things to do in L.A. this weekend

Things to do in L.A. this weekend

We don’t know about you, but our mind is always focused on the weekend. It can never come soon enough—which is why we’re already thinking about what new restaurants we want to try or where we can drive for the day. Whether you’re looking to scope out the latest museum exhibitions or watch a movie outdoors, you’ll find plenty of things to do in L.A. this weekend. We curate an L.A. weekend itinerary of the city’s best concerts, culture and cuisine, every week, just for you.

All of L.A.’s outdoor movies in one calendar

All of L.A.’s outdoor movies in one calendar

Outdoor movies combine two things we love about L.A.: an appreciation of movie-making and spending as much time as possible outside. Alfresco screenings usually start to pop up across the city in the early spring and continue into the fall and holiday season, be it atop rooftop bars, at L.A.’s best parks or even at a Hollywood cemetery. Most of our favorite outdoor series fall into two formats: Alfresco screenings where moviegoers bring their own chair or blanket and can pack together some picnic food, and rooftop ones where you’ll be offered a seat and some on-site snacks as you catch films both old and new. (If you’re looking for a fun date idea, this one takes the cake.) Be sure to check back all year long for updates on the list, as new screenings are always being added. Looking to see a new movie any night of the week? Check out the best movie theaters in L.A. or the few remaining old-school drive-in movie theaters. And for some at-home inspiration, you can always catch up on the best L.A. movies of all time. For screenings with multiple movies on a single night, each film is separately ticketed unless otherwise noted. Also, movie selections tend to change, but we’ll do our best to keep the list below updated on a weekly basis.

The best picnic spots in Los Angeles

The best picnic spots in Los Angeles

L.A.’s perpetually pleasant weather (occasional triple-digit summer days aside) means never-ending opportunities for outdoor dining. But sometimes, even a proper place setting on a patio feels too formal. For those occasions, we take advantage of the many beautiful picnic spots in Los Angeles. From a bench in a park to a blanket on the beach, here are the 20 best picnic spots in Los Angeles for a casual but memorable alfresco meal. Need to bring some snacks along? Here’s where to stock up on picnic food.

The 16 best things to do in Santa Monica

The 16 best things to do in Santa Monica

Surrounded by mountains on one side and the beach on another, the urban sprawl of Los Angeles seems to melt away as soon as you hit Santa Monica. This beachside city has a charm all of its own and is the essence of that classic postcard picture of Southern California—yes, including a bit of an upscale air in spots and plenty of traffic. But we’re not here to complain about the 10 or PCH. Instead, we’re here to help you fill your free time—ideally that coveted, less-trafficked window between morning rush hour and happy hour or after sunset—with the very best things to in Santa Monica, including its most essential attractions.

Where to see Southern California wildflowers

Where to see Southern California wildflowers

As we move through winter and into spring, some more Southern California wildflowers are starting to arrive—but so too is an antsy feeling as we patiently wait for something close to a super bloom. If you embark on one of the best hikes in L.A. right now, you’ll likely find lots of green grasses but only a few colorful flowers. Instead, you’ll need to embark on a day trip into the desert to see some standout flora—but even then, some of the most dazzling displays are already passing their peak. Since we were lucky enough to actually have a winter with some rain in Los Angeles, the signs do point to being able to see some standout Southern California wildflowers—but maybe not quite a super bloom. What’s the latest bloom status? As of early April, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park’s wildflowers appear to be passing their peak while Carrizo Plain is starting to get a bit more colorful. Closer to home, Malibu’s Point Dume has been blanketed in yellow flowers. But otherwise there’s yet to be anything approaching a “super bloom.”  Aside from those, there’s not much we’d say is worth the trek quite yet. In fact, we’re in a bit of a wildflower lull right now: The desert displays seem to be dwindling while poppies simply haven’t arrived. That could all change with a bit of warm weather, but so far a “super bloom” doesn’t seem likely. We’ve checked in on some of our favorite spots to see SoCal wildflowers and their current bloom status. We’ll update each location as soon as there’s some n

The 13 best Downtown Los Angeles hotels perfect for golden hour

Over the past decade, Downtown L.A. has transformed from a place where business people were forced to stay to a destination where tourists want to stay. Downtown hotels span both historic high-rises and sleek contemporary towers, with enough rooms to cater to convention attendees and tourists alike.

If you’re looking for an L.A. experience that’s different from the typical Hollywood one, consider a stay at one of these Downtown Los Angeles hotels.

The 20 best hotels in Palm Springs

The 20 best hotels in Palm Springs

Palm Springs hotels have gone from strength to strength in the last decade or so. You can now find something to suit any style, from cozy rustic spots to swanky resort-sized stays to quiet boutique properties. Want to book an opulent five-star villa kitted out with every possible amenity plus a dope restaurant? Well, Palm Springs has plenty of that, too. One thing that hasn’t changed is the entrancing “desert modernism” aesthetic and discreet vibe; you’re just as likely to catch a crew of European retirees scouting the famous Architecture and Design Center as a Hollywood A-lister lounging by the pool. And speaking of pools, every hotel on our list has one—a Palm Springs hotel with no pool is like a dirty martini without an olive, after all. Spending time poolside is practically a required thing to do in Palm Springs for travelers in this spirited town. Whether you’re making the trip to Coachella or just looking for a fun getaway, take a scroll through the options below and make sure you pack shorts and sunscreen—it’s gonna be a scorcher.

The Tortured Poets Department: A Spotify Library Installation

The Tortured Poets Department: A Spotify Library Installation

It’s nearly release time for Taylor Swift’s next album, The Tortured Poets Department, and Swifties are busy parsing together clues all over the Internet in order to find out, uh, something. The latest Easter egg hunt ahead of the album’s release: an IRL installation at the Grove. From April 16 through 18, Spotify is teaming up with Taylor to mount a poetry library at the open-air shopping mall, with shelves filled with “books and visual surprises” that hint at the direction of the new album. The installation will be updated each day leading up to the release on April 19. Note that entry to the area is on a first-come, first-served basis. Paging all Tortured Poets:Join us at The Grove in L.A. starting tomorrow to celebrate Taylor Swift's newest era, arriving 4/19. 🤍 pic.twitter.com/46MJb3O3bk— Spotify (@Spotify) April 15, 2024

Cinespia Cemetery Screenings

Cinespia Cemetery Screenings

It isn’t summer in L.A. until the first cemetery screening brings hoards of movie-lovers to Hollywood Forever, toting folding chairs, picnic blankets, snack spreads and lots of booze. Each year, Cinespia brings classic cult favorites to the hallowed resting place of Old Hollywood greats—and a couple of off-site screenings, too. Before it heads back to the cemetery, Cinespia will kick off its 2024 season with a pair of screenings at L.A. State Historic Park, plus its first-ever event at the Rose Bowl. Catch Mammia Mia! (May 10) and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (May 17) in Chinatown and Almost Famous (May 25) in Pasadena. Unlike the cemetery, these spots aren’t BYOB, but you can bring your own food or hit up the on-site bar and concessions. And, of course, Cinespia’s popular photo booths and DJs will make their return, as well. The outdoor screenings are an L.A. rite of passage, a quintessential summer experience and one of the best film venues in the city. Just be sure to get your ticket early, arrive early, pee early… it’s a popular affair, to say the least.

ARRIVE Palm Springs

ARRIVE Palm Springs

4 out of 5 stars

Consider Arrive the Goldilocks of Palm Springs hotels: Its butterfly roof nods to the area’s mid-century architecture while staying fresh with industrial-chic touches, its 21-and-over policy and pool bar keep things more placid than party and its relatively intimate 32-room setup avoids the cold busyness of a high-rise hotel without incurring the honeymoon prices of small secluded spots. It’s roughly a mile from the most walkable stretch of the city’s downtown, but that bit of distance keeps things considerably more low-key here. Rooms are spacious and bright and strike the right balance between sophistication and fun; tropical wallpaper behind the bed adds color and personality without going overboard on retro charm. Aside from a window on the front door (which, don’t worry, has a pull-down shade), all of the rest are relegated to the tops of the walls, which provides tons of natural light while maintaining plenty of privacy. Storage is very limited (though you’ll likely live in a bathing suit during our stay) and we really would’ve loved an in-room coffee maker or kettle (you’ll instead have to drop a few bucks at the adjoining coffee shop). The ground-floor patios are cute if inessential; consider opting for the otherwise identical upstairs studios for at least $30 less per night. As any good Palm Springs hotel should, the pool is the center of attention and Arrive has really nailed that part: The pool and hot tub themselves are exceptionally spacious, with plenty of seati

Hollywood Bowl

Hollywood Bowl

The Hollywood Bowl is beautiful even when it’s empty (when there’s no performance, the iconic venue doubles as a county park). But when there’s a show—when picnic basket-toting concertgoers amble up the hill and fill amphiteater’s 18,000 seats—it’s simply magical. The summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 1922, the Bowl is simply unlike any other concert venue in L.A.; seeing a show here isn’t just a performance, it’s an experience. The gates typically open two hours prior to showtime, when guests stream in and start to claim the picnic areas. Yes, you can bring your own food, and even your own bottles of beer and wine for LA Phil-produced shows (as opposed to lease events, which aren’t BYOB friendly). Being just about anywhere inside the Bowl feels electric, but of course where you sit does still matter (the bulk of the venue is bench seating). If you’re able to splurge on the box seats (which can cost hundreds of dollars each), you’ll be treated to four foldable chairs with two tables that pop open for the ultimate pre-show picnic. On the opposite end, if you’re booking tickets early you might be able to nab $1 bench seats all the way in the back for some LA Phil shows. If you don’t want to drop a ton on seats but do still want a taste of a premium experience, consider booking a reservation at the Backyard, an open-air restaurant right next to one of the huge screens that flank the stage. Reserve an early time slot and you’re welcome to wine and dine right up un

Pez Coastal Kitchen

Pez Coastal Kitchen

Downtown’s Pez Cantina trades its chips and guac (and margs) approach for more of a California-meets-Mediterranean affair at this similarly seafood-focused Old Pasadena expansion. The coastal-colored dining room brings some welcomed buoyancy to this formerly pubby street corner, though Pez Coastal Kitchen keeps things slightly more casual than destination-worthy neighbors Union and Perle. Load up on starters and crudo for the menu’s most inventive entries, like the “ravioli,” a pasta-less dish that wraps ahi tuna in raw scallops with a delicious bath of Baja ponzu, or bluefin tuna that comes perfectly seared and ready to mop up the avocado labneh and truffle-lime vinaigrette underneath. Cocktails emphasize gin, tequila and mezcal (we particularly liked the Lady Bug, a beautiful-and-balanced mix of tequila, amaro and blackberry), while the hyperlocal beers are practically begging to be paired with the crispy on the outside, soft on the inside yam skins, which come dipped in a bed of green tahini and whipped feta.  

D23 Expo

D23 Expo

Every two years, Disnerds come together at the Anaheim Convention Center to celebrate all things Disney and see what sort of magic the company has been working on. Show floor highlights include a peek inside the Disney Archives and the latest ride designs and inventions from Walt Disney Imagineering. If you can secure a seat, the weekend’s keynotes include the celebrity-filled Legends induction ceremony and a look at upcoming releases from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and both animated and live action Disney movies, as well as the latest from the Disney theme parks. When is this year’s D23? You’ll find the show floor and most of the panels at D23 at the Anaheim Convention Center from August 9 to 11, 2024. The convention center hours are from 9am to 7pm each day. The three headlining panels will all take place at the Honda Center this year, including the film and TV-filled Disney Entertainment Showcase on August 9 at 7pm, the theme park-focused Disney Experiences Showcase on August 10 at 7pm and the Disney Legends Ceremony on August 11 at 5pm. Wait, what’s this about the Honda Center? That’s right, to accommodate more guests in the company’s ever-popular showcases, the three main events above have been moved off-site to the Honda Center. Expo organizers tell us that each of these events will hold about 12,000 people, almost double what they’ve been able to in the past. Seating will also be entirely reserved ahead of time (more on that in a minute) so there’s no need to queue for h

Street Food Cinema

Street Food Cinema

For dinner and a movie, all in one, just follow the food trucks. During the spring, summer and fall, Street Food Cinema throws together a series of outdoor parties—usually alfresco, sometimes in a drive-in format—that include screenings of some of our favorite movies, paired with an assortment of gourmet food trucks and even a live music performance from a cool local band. The screenings are held in venues across L.A. and alternate from week to week, so make sure to check the schedule. Some of the outdoor venues are dog-friendly, allowing you to bring your four-legged cinema lover along. See more of this season’s outdoor movie screenings in L.A.

Wild Things Are Happening: The Art of Maurice Sendak

Wild Things Are Happening: The Art of Maurice Sendak

Let the wild rumpus start at this celebration of beloved children’s author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. The Skirball Cultural Center will be displaying more than 150 sketches, storyboards and paintings from the Where the Wild Things Are creator. Titled “Wild Things Are Happening: The Art of Maurice Sendak,” the exhibition debuted at the Columbus Museum of Art in 2022 and will sail off (metaphorically speaking) to visit L.A. from April 18 through September 1, 2024. Admission costs $18 for adults, with discounts for students, seniors and children; it’s completely free to visit on Thursdays. In addition to his own books, In the Night Kitchen and Outside Over There among them, the exhibition will spotlight art that Sendak created for a handful of other authors, including Else Holmelund Minarik’s Little Bear, as well designs for Mozart operas and books. The show will also focus on his personal and family life, with portraits he shot, toys he designed and insight into his life as a child of Jewish immigrants and a lover of Romantic music and art.

Frieze Los Angeles

Frieze Los Angeles

The New York export lands in L.A. for its fifth art fair in February. After first debuting in the surreal setting of the Paramount backlot and then decamping to a space next to the Beverly Hilton, the event has since settled on a site-specific tent in the southeast corner of Santa Monica Airport. Frieze’s massive tent is packed with impressive galleries—and its surrounding grounds with lounges and local favorite food—but the price of admission will likely keep out most casual art fans. Thankfully, Frieze is about more than just the fair: Its arrival attracts major openings at free gallery shows all across the city in the days surrounding the event.

No Values

No Values

As Coachella has become increasingly pop-friendly, promoter Goldenvoice has made it up to aging locals with more and more genre-focused music festivals with stellar lineups. The latest such case: No Values, a fest filled with punk legends you’re almost sure to find in Gen X’ers T-shirt drawer. The Original Misfits, Social Distortion, Iggy Pop, Turnstile, Bad Religion and Sublime top the lineup for the June 8 show at Fairplax in Pomona, with additional sets from the Dillinger Escape Plan, Power Trip, the Damned, Joyce Manor, Suicidal Tendencies, the Vandals, Black Flag, the Jesus Lizard, L7, the Dead Milkmen and more.

Barbie The Movie: In Concert

Barbie The Movie: In Concert

We thought this year’s Hollywood Bowl lineup was already kenough, but here’s one more addition that has us dreaming in pink: Barbie will screen at the Bowl this summer with a live orchestra performing the score. On July 27, conductor Macy Schmidt will lead the Barbie Land Sinfonietta, an all-women, majority women-of-color orchestra, in a performance that accompanies a showing of the Greta Gerwig film. As is the case with the majority of LA Phil-produced shows, tickets are currently only available to subscribers, but single tickets will become available on May 7.

Doja Cat at Coachella 2024: everything you need to know, including start time

Doja Cat at Coachella 2024: everything you need to know, including start time

We’re not the only ones who’ve never been able to get “Mooo!” out of our heads, right? But singer and rapper Doja Cat has come a long way since her days as a cow, infiltrating pop radio with her silky retro-futuristic bangers and becoming a mainstay of music festivals—including this year’s Coachella. Before she steps on the stage, here’s everything you need to know about Doja Cat’s headlining set at Coachella this year. When is Doja Cat playing at Coachella this year? She’ll be performing on Sunday, April 14, during the fest’s first weekend, as well as on Sunday, April 21, during the second. What time will she come on stage? 10:25pm on Sunday, according to the scheduled start time for the first weekend of the festival. Assume that could change slightly if there are any delays, and sometimes the second weekend’s start time gets shuffled around. Regardless, it’s worth mentioning that there’s a midnight curfew (that the festival has sometimes cruised past). What will the setlist look like? Of course, we don’t know the setlist in advance, but we can tap into setlist.fm as a pretty decent predictor. For starters, Doja Cat toured pretty extensively until the end of 2023 in support of last year’s Scarlet, so it’s likely that album will factor pretty heavily into her set. Her last Coachella performance was pretty packed with more than 20 songs, and we’d expect this longer headlining slot to have room for even more. As far as specific tracks, “Tia Tamera,” “Say So,” “Juicy,” “Need to

Coachella 2024 set times and streaming schedule for weekend 1: the full list you need to know

With eight main stages plus a pair of fest-within-a-fest stages, Coachella can become as much a feat of time management as it is one of stamina. The music festival does a pretty good job of minimizing conflicts, but inevitably sets start to overlap or have in-person attendees flocking from one side of the field to the other. To make your life a little easier—whether you’re watching from in person in Indio or on your living room couch—we’ve sorted out what you need to know about Coachella weekend one set times, as well as the live stream schedule. How can I stream weekend one? Head to the Coachella channel on YouTube starting at 4pm PDT on Friday, April 12 through Sunday night. The festival will be streaming basically all of the sets from the six main stages after 4pm (and you can watch up to four at the same time using YouTube’s new multiview feature). The timing of the streams so far matches up with the stage schedule, which you can find at the bottom of this story. When the fest wraps up for the day around 1am, the channel will normally go right into a repeat of the first day’s sets. Once the next day’s stream starts, though, you’ll be limited to select highlights from the previous day. You can find out more—including the day-by-day streaming schedule—in our larger guide to the Coachella live stream. Courtesy Goldenvoice What are the weekend one set times and schedule? We’ve included the entire schedule below—in both text and image form—but before you comb through the cou

Tyler, the Creator at Coachella 2024: everything you need to know

Tyler, the Creator at Coachella 2024: everything you need to know

For Angelenos, Tyler, the Creator is as much of a local cultural icon as he is a global rap superstar thanks to his GOLF WANG store on Fairfax and even his own annual hip-hop fest, Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. But his headlining set at Coachella is nonetheless a pretty big deal—so here’s everything you need to know about his performance at the Indio music festival. When is Tyler, the Creator playing at Coachella this year? He’ll be performing on Saturday, April 13, during the fest’s first weekend, as well as on Saturday, April 20, during the second. What time will he come on stage? 11:40pm on Saturday, according to the scheduled start time for the first weekend of the festival. There’s always a chance the set could start late, and that time is subject to change for the second weekend, too. Regardless, it’s worth mentioning that there’s a 1am curfew (that the festival has sometimes cruised past). What will the setlist look like? We of course won’t know until Tyler actually takes the stage, so until then we can turn to setlist.fm for some hints. “IFHY,” “Tamale” and his breakout hit “Yonkers” are among the staples of his sets. It’s been three years since his last album, Call Me If You Get Lost, though he did release some bonus tracks last spring; that album factored fairly heavily into his 17-song set at Camp Flog Gnaw last fall, though there was a little bit of something pulled from all of his records. Has Tyler, the Creator ever played Coachella before? This will be Tyler’s third

Lana Del Rey at Coachella 2024: Everything you need to know

She’s played Coachella, she’s written a song about Coachella and she’s crafted a whole vibe that’s basically synonymous with Coachella. And now Lana Del Rey finds herself set to headline the first night of this year’s music festival. Here’s everything we know—and a few things we predict—about her performance before she takes the stage in Indio. When is Lana Del Rey at Coachella 2024? She’ll be performing on Friday, April 12, during the fest’s first weekend, as well as on Friday, April 19, during the second. What time will she come on stage? 11:20pm on Friday—at least that’s the scheduled time for the first weekend of the fest. That time is always subject to change for the second weekend, so we’ll update this story accordingly as we move between weekends of the fest. For either date, note that there’s a 1am curfew (though one that the festival has sometimes cruised past). Any news on the setlist? We won’t know until she actually wraps up her performance, of course, but we can get a pretty good idea from combing through setlist.fm. Poring over the past few years of setlists, “Video Games,” “Blue Jeans,” “Born to Die” and “Summertime Sadness” make it into just about every show. As far as some wildcards, though she’s seemingly never played it live before, surely she’ll perform “Coachella – Woodstock in My Mind,” right? It’s also worth mentioning that Lasso, Del Rey’s upcoming country-inspired album, is due out in September, so there’s always a chance we’ll hear a preview track or

If you see a flash in the night sky in Los Angeles, it’s likely fireworks or a blown transformer (and once or twice a year lightning). A bright bulb just kind of hovering there? Likely a helicopter or the LAX flight path. And a bright fiery streak across the sky? Rarely a shooting star, but otherwise pretty much always a rocket launch. Indeed, that was the explanation for Monday night’s otherworldly light streak above Southern California: SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base, a bit up the coast from Santa Barbara. The 7:30pm launch on April 1 delivered 22 satellites into low-Earth orbit, the latest Starlink mission from the Hawthorne-based company and its reusable rockets. Photograph: Michael Juliano for Time Out Vandenberg—formerly an Air Force base and now a Space Force one—has hosted launches for decades, whether it’s satellites sent to space, missiles being tested or some other classified payload being launched into orbit. Chances are, though, that you don’t notice most of these launches: During the day they’re barely visible and well after dark they look like a little flare floating upwards across the sky. But when the timing is just right—usually 30 to 60 minutes after sunset or before sunrise—these rocket launches leave behind an out-of-this-world display in the sky. Dubbed the twilight phenomenon, high-altitude light from the setting sun catches the rocket’s vapor trail, which turns its exhaust plume into a jellyfish-like kaleidoscope

The Broad is expanding with more gallery space and a rooftop courtyard

The Broad is expanding with more gallery space and a rooftop courtyard

If you’ve gotten off at the brand-new Metro stop right behind the Broad, you might’ve noticed that the Downtown museum’s parking garage has a whole lot of empty space on top of it. Well, it turns out that was being set aside for some pretty major plans. The Broad announced on Wednesday that it’ll be building an expansion right behind the existing museum. The Hope Street-facing structure will feature three floors of new gallery space as well as two open-air courtyards. The museum will break ground on its expansion by early 2025 and expects it to be open before the 2028 Olympics. Before we dive into the details, to answer what might be your most pressing question: Yes, the museum will continue to be free to access, and it’ll remain open during construction, too. There’ll be a whole lot more art to see, too, once it’s done, with 55,000 square feet of new gallery space, a 70% increase over the museum’s existing footprint. The Grand Avenue institution is already stocked with works from contemporary art stars like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons and Barbara Kruger, but the Broad says this expansion will provide space to focus on comparatively more overlooked artists and movements, as well.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame’s pedestrian-friendly makeover might make it a little more pleasant

The Hollywood Walk of Fame’s pedestrian-friendly makeover might make it a little more pleasant

Any time out-of-town visitors say they want to see the Walk of Fame, Angelenos start rattling off a dozen reasons why they shouldn’t. But a new city initiative is trying to turn Hollywood Boulevard into the type of destination you’d actually want to show off. The “Access to Hollywood” project will introduce bus and bike lanes to Hollywood Boulevard, as well as widen sidewalks and improve pedestrian safety; it’ll also eliminate a lane of car traffic in each direction and slightly reduce on-street parking. Construction is set to begin by the end of the year and a temporary version could debut by early 2025; a still-in-design permanent implementation will follow. If your memory can penetrate the fog of 2020, this might all sound familiar: The City of Los Angeles first unveiled concepts early that year for a similar makeover, with more details released in 2022 and work that was supposed to kick off in 2023. “Access to Hollywood” continues these same plans (under a slightly delayed timeline now) and unites it with an adjacent pedestrian safety initiative to the east. The result: a 3.6-mile span of Hollywood Boulevard, from La Brea Avenue to the intersection of Fountain Avenue and Sunset Boulevard, with protected bike lanes, as well as bus lanes from Orange Drive to Gower Street. Courtesy CD13 “This project is about making our community safer and transforming how residents, workers and visitors use Hollywood Boulevard,” said city councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez, whose district t

Everything you need to know before heading to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve

Everything you need to know before heading to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve

Eschscholzia californica is as essentially Californian as Disneyland, In-N-Out and Huell Howser. Never heard of it? You probably know it better as the California poppy. When we’ve been bestowed with plenty of wintertime rain, our beloved state flower dots the region in bright golden blossoms. We Angelenos are particularly lucky to live less than two hours away from the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve—a more than 1,700-acre park of poppy-blanketed hills. The Poppy Reserve isn’t the only place to see wildflowers, but it’s definitely usually the dreamiest. The reserve (parking lot at roughly 15101 Lancaster Rd; $10) is open year-round from sunrise to sunset, but it’s only dotted with poppies for a very small slice of the year. So before you hit the freeway, make sure you keep these things in mind. Photograph: Time Out/Michael JulianoAntelope Valley California Poppy Reserve in 2023 Follow the bloom status. As of mid-March, there are essentially no poppies to see yet. (Note: All of the photos in this story are from the mid-April peak of the bloom in 2023.) In the most recent dispatch from the reserve, the parks department notes that some fiddlenecks are visible as well as some tiny baby poppies, but otherwise if you went right now you’d see nothing but green-ish hills. That said, if the weather remains mild, the agency expects 2024’s showing to be better than last year’s. Speaking of, 2023 was an odd year at the reserve: It received snow (snow!) in late February, which

These are the 2024 L.A. Marathon road closures you should avoid

These are the 2024 L.A. Marathon road closures you should avoid

Good luck to all those running the L.A. Marathon on Sunday. Also, good luck to anyone thinking about driving anywhere near the L.A. Marathon route on Sunday. It’s your friendly annual reminder that thousands of runners will descend on 26.2 miles of L.A.’s streets this weekend, and an even greater mileage of rolling road closures will shut down traffic near Dodger Stadium, around Downtown, toward Hollywood and in Beverly Hills. (Of course, you’re always welcome to use the Metro to avoid some of these closures and cheer on the runners.) When the L.A. Marathon kicks off on Sunday, March 17, you’re going to want to avoid driving near some of the city’s busiest areas starting at 4 or 5am and until later in the morning or afternoon: Steer clear of Downtown until a little after 10am, avoid Hollywood (specifically near Hollywood Boulevard) until around noon and Beverly Hills until 1pm. West of there, things get a little more complicated. This year’s marathon once again drops the stadium-to-the-sea route for a “Stadium to Stars” one that makes a U-turn around Brentwood and then wraps up in Century City. So Santa Monica won’t be affected by street closures, but Brentwood, Westwood and Century City will be doubly impacted: All of Santa Monica Boulevard from Wilshire Boulevard to Sepulveda Boulevard will stay closed until 6pm, while San Vicente Boulevard in Brentwood will be closed until 5pm. And consider Century City, where you’ll find the finish line and festival, mostly shut down to c

At L.A.’s WcDonald’s pop-up, your McNuggets come served atop anime projections

WcDonald’s—yes, with a “W”—has popped up with free food in a storefront in a West Hollywood strip mall that’s been flipped into an immersive dining room. Alright, so… what exactly is going on here? Let’s back up first: WcDonald’s has been a fixture in anime and manga for more than four decades, a way to skirt around trademark laws by flipping the McDonald’s golden arches upside-down. But now the fast food giant has decided to partake in the parody too with a rollout of manga packaging and savory chili WcDonald’s sauce around the globe. Photograph: Michael Juliano for Time Out L.A., though, is the only place that you’ll find this WcDonald’s immersive dining experience. OpenTable reservations sold out almost immediately, but you’re welcome to wait in line on March 9 and 10 for a free meal and what I thought was actually a pretty fun though very silly experience. Service runs from 11am to 8pm on Saturday and Sunday, with seatings on the hour—yes, this is a seated experience, limited to 60 people at a time. If you show up without a reservation, it essentially means you’ll be filling in the open seats left by any latecomers, so just keep that in mind. Photograph: Michael Juliano for Time Out Photograph: Michael Juliano for Time Out You’ll easily spot the space on La Cienega Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard by its “W” sign. Inside, you won’t find a typical McDonald’s; instead, it’s a mostly empty space aside from the tables and chairs, though every wall and surface has be

Wayfarers Chapel, SoCal’s singular glass chapel, is closed temporarily but indefinitely

Wayfarers Chapel, SoCal’s singular glass chapel, is closed temporarily but indefinitely

A glassy, faceted modernist structure tucked into a sunny grove of redwoods and perched on a hilltop across from the ocean, architect Lloyd Wright’s Wayfarers Chapel is easily one of the most uniquely beautiful churches in Southern California—and a popular destination for weddings and casual photo ops alike. But its striking Rancho Palos Verdes location has now left the chapel in a precarious position. Wayfarers Chapel announced on Thursday that it had closed both the chapel and the surrounding grounds to the public due to “accelerated land movement” in an area of PV that’s been subject to landslides. As a result, all weddings and events beyond this upcoming Sunday have been canceled, as well. The chapel first announced the news on Instagram, where commenters with wedding dates as far out as next year swapped stories of finding out about their cancellations. (The venue is offering refunds for confirmed reservations.) As it turns out, 175 events between now and October 2025 have been canceled—though, to be clear, that’s not a reopening date, as no plans have been announced. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Wayfarers Chapel (@wayfarers_chapel) According to the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, the chapel has been raising concerns over land movement for the past several months and requested a city inspection last week. While the city did find damage and signs of movement—as much as five inches between the end of November and the end of December last year

The 10 things Angelenos love most about L.A.

The 10 things Angelenos love most about L.A.

Oh, sure, we could complain about plenty of things in Los Angeles. But in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re focused on only offering compliments. For the nearly 10 million people who call L.A. County home, there are plenty of things that keep us firmly rooted here—and things that we don’t just like about L.A., but honestly and truly love. So we turned to our Facebook followers to let us know what they love the most about L.A. As you might expect, the weather was the most popular answer. But not all of the other items on our list below are quite as obvious. Here, according to our followers, are what Angelenos love the most about L.A. The food You know those ampersand T-shirts everyone was wearing a decade or so ago? If you were to make one for L.A.’s food scene, it would probably turn into a floor-length dress: tacos & dim sum & doughnuts & sushi & shawarma & KBBQ & we’ve gone and made ourselves really, really hungry. The weather It’s sunny upwards of 250 days a year and even in the winter the temperature often approaches 70. In fact, with all of the greenery that the seasonal rain brings, we’d say winter is one of the most pleasant periods in L.A. Where else in the country—that isn’t a humid swamp in the summer—can you say that? The vibes Maybe the most intangible characteristic but one frequently mentioned among the responses to our Facebook prompt, L.A.’s chilled vibes make this city a mindset as much as it is a physical place. (Aside from the freeways, which really kill
