Time Out #10 | Monday 5 October, 2020
Embrace your inner basic with these pumpkin spice treats across L.A.
Search your feelings, you know it to be true: Pumpkin spice season is finally here, and it is good. Here in L.A., that “basic” blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and occasionally allspice has made its way into far more than just PSLs: We’ve rounded up some of our favorite spots that have spiced up bread, chocolate, ice cream, doughnuts and cake.
What to do this week
Sat at 6pm The Blue Hour
Watch an opera and a light installation projected onto a battleship from your car during the Blue Hour, an ocean-inspired event on the San Pedro waterfront.
The best of the rest:
Opens Fri Cruise through a jack-o’-lantern tunnel, pick a pumpkin and go trick-or-treating (all from your car) when the drive-through Haunt’oween L.A. debuts in Woodland Hills.

Fri Stream the first of four surprise shows this month with the initial drop from Live From Largo, a new series of music and comedy sets recently recorded at the intimate theater.

Sat, Sun 11:30am–8pm Get Smorgasburg L.A. favorites like Tacos 1986 and Shrimp Daddy delivered with the food fair’s limited-time Smorg Delivered service.

The most amazing events happening in L.A. this month
Drive-in movies, drive-through pumpkin patches, drive-in dance performances, drive-through haunted houses—we think you can probably pick up on the theme for this month’s packed slate of events. But you’ll also find some opportunities for fresh air, including a bike ride in a vineyard and a spooky walking tour, as well as some of our favorite watch-from-home picks.
Here’s what’s open in Los Angeles right now
The reopening groundhog saw its shadow last week (translation: our case numbers are still slightly too high), and L.A. will have to wait at least another few weeks before it can move forward in the state’s reopening framework. But even so, the county announced some meaningful updates about nail salons, breweries and playgrounds. We’ve summed up everything you need to know about what’s actually open in L.A. right now.
