Go Metro Weekends, Dec.4th – Dec. 6th

Go Metro Weekends is The Source’s weekly guide to having a great weekend in L.A. without a car. All events are easily accessible (within a half mile walk) by Metro bus and rail lines. Have an event you’d like us to include? Shoot us an email at thesource@metro.net. Time and space constraints limit us from listing every accessible event in this city, but this curated list represents what we think is cool and easy to get to.

This weekend we’ve got a cultural jazz festival in Hollywood, a no-budget film festival Downtown, a tour of a castle in Pasadena, and holiday happenings all around town. Get out this weekend, without a car!
