On this edition of Finally Friday, KTLA’s Andy Riesmeyer shares some fun ideas for things to do for the weekend of December 17, 2021.
- Hollywood’s legendary recording studio Grandmaster Recorders reopens as a gorgeous restaurant, lounge and rooftop bar. Led by the same team behind E.P. & L.P., the space serves up modern Italian food from and husband and wife team Chefs Monty and Jaci Koludrovic, in spacious digs that nod to the building’s rock and roll history.
- Tour Long Beach’s picturesque Naples Island while taking in the lights and buzz from a wooden gondola. The Gondola Getaway will take you on a romantic, fifty minute cruise where gawking at the cool architecture is as fun as seeing the Christmas lights.
- For the whole family, hitch a ride on The Polar Express in Perris, CA. The hour long trips feature dancing, singing and an opportunity to meet Santa, as the movie comes to life.
- If the crunch of the holidays means you’re searching for some calm, relaxing fun, check out a candlelit concert from Fever. Catch some of the city’s top musicians like The Orchid Quartet at different venues around town.
