Plan your month with our January 2018 events calendar of the best activities, including free things to do, winter events and our favorite concerts
With the holidays behind us, January normally sparks images of a long plod through gray skies and chilly temperatures.
It's winter, after all; you can even still go ice skating. But let's be honest, the weather is still pretty perfect, even with a slight uptick in precipitation.
In fact, take advantage of those clear, post-rain days with one of the best hikes in L.A. Or head to one of the city's best beaches while it's still deserted for the season. Start the year off right with the city's best activities and things to do in our January events calendar.
It's baaaack. DineLA returns for its annual winter edition, this time extending the event for a full 15 days and featuring hundreds of L.A. restaurants offering discounted lunch and dinner meals. With prix-fixe menus that range from $15-$49 (plus an Exclusive Series featuring menus starting at $95), Angelenos can indulge in some of the best restaurants in the city without dipping into their rent money.
Along with the usual suspects, there are a few newcomers on this year's ballot, like HiHo Cheeseburger, Uovo, The Mighty, Lunetta Dining Room and Bar and more. Check out the complete list of participating restaurants here.
