It’s almost summer, meaning it’s now officially barbecue season. Take a weekend long tour of L.A.’s best BBQ joints with Meat Weekend’s BBQ Bus Crawl. Starting at Union Station, you get eight fixed plates with at least two types of meat and a side at eight different venues each day. Tickets are available for Saturday, Sunday or two day VIP packages. Tickets start at $50 for single day pricing but they stop selling at noon today! (Metro Red, Purple or Gold Line or several local and rapid bus lines to Union Station)

  1. FYI – Uruth Cafe did not give a 10% discount when patrons (including myself) showed a valid Metro TAP Card.
