Lakers, Clippers and Kings Pre-gaming and Viewing at The Mixing Room, J.W. Marriott at L.A. LIVE

Burgers & Beers Deal ($18)

With hockey and basketball seasons upon us, you’ll want to go somewhere to pre-game a live match or simply watch the game on the big screen. Fortunately, the posh space in the lobby level of L.A. Live‘s J.W. Marriott known as The Mixing Room is offering up a few deals whenever an L.A. home team is in the rink or on the court.

In a sort of home team-spirited happy hour for those attending the game (and not), they’re offering a Street Food series, with one $8 featured menu item to run one to two hours before each home game. During this time, you can also get a 16-oz beer for $8, a flight of three beers for $12 and a street food item plus 16-oz beer combo for $15.

Seen Whip-It but still haven’t gotten your fix? Miss the Thriller-choreographed party in Hollywood a few months back? Wanna celebrate Halloween in style but sick of breaking the bank? Look no further – LA’s Best Party on Wheels is going to be Thriller-themed on Halloween and costs only $5 with RSVP.

Complete with a “How low can you go?” limbo contest, you’ll want to pull out your red motorcycle jacket, ghoul eyes, macabre face paint, masks and torn jeans. Oh – and your roller skates if you got ’em. If not, never “fear” – 200 pairs of skates will be available to rent. The Down & Derby people have also arranged a live performance by Pink Dollaz.

Disco tunes will be provided by Dublab DJs.
