Thanks to John for this event suggestion:
Thursday Nights are free at the Museum and Yamato offers a good hour price menu from 5 - 6. Museum closes at 8. I propose Happy Hour from 5 - 615 then head over to the Museum until closing time. The Hammer Museum is a unique, cutting-edge arts institution that connects the classics and the contemporary through its varied collections, wide-ranging exhibitions, and provocative programs. The Museum is positioned—both physically and metaphorically—at the gateway between the city of Los Angeles and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The Museum is the entry through which the general public can gain access to the diverse riches of the University community. Meanwhile, through the programs and exhibitions of the Museum, UCLA students gain first-hand exposure to the larger world of creative human endeavors. UCLA’s mandate of pursuing cutting-edge research within the sciences and the humanities is reflected in the Hammer Museum’s renowned exhibitions and programs. We approach the arts with the same quest for knowledge, discovery, and understanding that guides the scientist, engineer, or anthropologist.
