Welcome to the newest addition of Fandomental activities. We’ve often seen folks asking what there is to do in cities that doesn’t involve drinking or the club scene… but is still within the realm of affordability. Fear not, fellow Fandomentals! Well, at least those of you living in Los Angeles. We’re rolling out a Fandomental curated weekly list of events that range from culture to sports and fit several budgets. As we continue to hone and fine-tune this list, look for other “weekly suggestions” to pop up for a city near you!
