Once more, with feeling: don’t drive this weekend

If you need another reason besides Carmageddon II to “eat, shop and play locally” this weekend, consider the Herbalife Triathalon. Streets will be closed from Venice to downtown L.A. on the morning of September 30, adding to your detour frustrations if you’re one of those people who just loves driving around Sunday mornings.

The race ends in downtown at L.A. LIVE, and if you’d like to attend the Finish Festival Expo or watch the winners receive their awards, go Metro. Take the Blue or Expo Line to Pico Station, or the Metro Silver Line to Figueroa/Olympic.

  1. These two events combined, Tri & Carma…, have literally driven me and my family out of town for the weekend. For residents of Mid City/Culver City/SoRo, the triathalon has literally boxed-in an entire region of the city and frankly, I’ve had enough. This year, I’ve made reservations in San Diego and will be spending my dollars there this weekend. The City says that these events bring money and economic activiity to the City, but I wholeheartedly disagree. I can’t even get to the Expo Line due to the street closures in my area!

    • Hi Rachel,

      Good catch! Clearly I have Halloween on the brain and I just want it to be October.
