Yoga At The L.A. Zoo
Zoo Yoga
L.A. Zoo
5333 Zoo Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90027
(323) 644-4200

The Los Angeles Zoo continues to do a fantastic job with event programming and this one might be the most inventive yet. The connection between Yoga and animals is obvious. Leave it to the Zoo to connect the dots and introduce an observational element paired with instruction from a Yogi. Drawing movement inspiration from some of the animals in the zoo, staff and instructors will guide beginners through the basics while enjoying the atmosphere of the zoo itself. This really is a yoga class on a Saturday morning on the grounds of the LA Zoo. Things couldn’t get much cooler.

See Eric Clapton Live!
The Forum
3900 W Manchester Blvd.
Inglewood, CA 90305

There are few names that carry the prestige of Eric Clapton. Unanimously regarded as a living legend among guitarists and fans the world over, it’s also pretty rare to see the musician step onstage. This weekend, Los Angeles will get the chance to see Clapton take to the stage of the storied Forum in Inglewood. Good, bad, or indifferent, whenever Clapton is onstage, the possibility of something historic happening is strong. One of music’s most iconic figures will perform at one of the country’s most iconic venues and he is sure to play hits throughout the evening. That has got to be reason enough to start looking for tickets.
