Cheap Eagle Rock

If you're in the Glendale/Pasadena area on Sunday, July 31, you might as well slip down to the hip town of Eagle Rock, which sits between them. The town's historical society is having its annual Ice Cream Social with ice cream for $1, free music and a chance to see exhibits about some famous Eagle Rockians (like President Obama).

Cheap Traffic

If you're just coming to L.A. this weekend, Sorry! This is Carmageddon weekend, where the 405 will be shut down for bridge construction from late Friday night to early Monday morning. Because of all the publicity surrounding it, I'm expecting travel to be tight, but not impossible. Avoid Sepulveda Blvd, which paralells the 405. If you're approaching from the north, you'll have better luck with the 5, or Malibu or Topanga Canyons to PCH.
