Now. Ideally we'd like to devote an entire post to how the mayor of America's second largest city had to explain to his fellow citizens that "car-free doesn't mean fun-free." But we don't have that kind of time, and you don't need to read about the impending collapse of civilization on a Friday afternoon.
So instead here's the interactive LA Metro page listing activities and discounts designed to keep people close to home. For residents who absolutely have to go beyond walking distance, Metrolink is offering extended late night service and $10 weekend passes good for unlimited rides. We've also embedded Metro's explanatory video at the bottom, which covers all of the stuff we would be telling you about if we weren't disappointed beyond words.
Seriously though. "Car-free doesn't mean fun-free." Who talks like that to other adults? What the hell is going on? Is anybody even in charge any more?
