What should we do this weekend?

on March 9, 2012

UPDATE:  Here are some things I learned on this little outing with the kids.

  • Don’t take a two year old who hasn’t napped.
  • DEFINITELY check out the origami exhibit!!  It is small but very impressive.  Exhibit is running until August.
  • For those of you who want to drive, there is parking across the street for $6.50
  • JANM has a special offer:  GO METRO & SAVE:  Take the Metro and get $2 off any adult admission and a 10% discount at Chado Tea Room.
  • Upcoming FREE days are April 14: Monster Mash!,  May 12: Celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage , July 14: Faces + Places
  • Lastly, if Daikokuya is jammed, check out Shin Sen Gumi on Central Ave, next to Yogurtland.

Hmmm…I often find myself pondering this, especially when my kids are chasing each other around the house screaming at the top of their lungs.  Aha!  Let’s see what FREE events Target is sponsoring this weekend.  It’s Target Free Family Saturday at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo!  Yay!!  The theme for tomorrow is origami (paper folding) and it looks like they will have some really fun craft activities throughout the day.  Before you get to the museum, walk over to Daikokuya and put your name on the list for some delicious ramen and by the time you leave the museum, they may have a table for you!  Parking can be a pain as well as expensive around Little Tokyo so for some added fun, consider taking the Gold Line (or the King Taco line as we like to call it) to the Little Tokyo station.  It will drop you off right across the street from the museum.  Most of the stations have free parking.

Also, heads up on a couple of FREE apps courtesy of my fellow blogger Life at Warp Speed:

Have a nice weekend!!
