Get out and about with your bike this weekend and take advantage of some special Metro discounts! Just mention “Bike Week” to save.

Tonight is Bike Night at the Hammer Museum. Celebrate all things bicycle, have your portrait taken with your faithful two-wheeled ride and enjoy plenty of other free activities. The Hammer’s North entrance on Lindbrook Drive will be wide open to bicyclists who want to ride right in and park at our guarded racks (but please bring a lock). Bike Night will take place from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Feel like checking out the museum on another day? Go Metro and save $5 on admission. (Metro Rapid 720 or 761 to Wilshire/Westwood)

For great food and drink, head to Pasadena and enjoy the collaborative efforts of Kings Row Gastropub and Congregation Ale House this weekend. The two restaurants are teaming up to bring you some great pub dishes and prizes. Flash your TAP card to save some cash at Kings Row (offer excludes special promotions). The festival of drinks ends this Sunday, so get while the going is good. Both restaurants are open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and until midnight on Sunday. (Metro Gold Line to Del Mar Station, Metro Rapid 780 and Bus 256 also serve the area, check Trip Planner for routes)

Bike to Long Beach to check out the new June Keyes Penguin Habitat at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Make sure to print out a coupon to save $2 on adult admission and $1 on child’s admission (valid this weekend only). The Aquarium is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. (Metro Blue Line to Long Beach Transit Mall)

Finally, this is the only weekend Hola Mexico Festival is in town, so squeeze in a film or two (between Star Trek: Into Darkness, who’s ready for Spock?).

  1. You include Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, but you don’t mention Long Beach Pride Festival on Saturday and Sunday?; funny how you forgot to mention a 75,000 attendee festival considering how close Metro Blue Line is to the festival. People could use it to avoid the parking hassle, not to mention avoiding drinking and driving.
