Travel: Do this instead of sitting in LAX Traffic

Should you find yourself in near the Los Angeles Airport on May 12th, it may be worth your while to check out the interesting festivities taking place at the LAX Four Points by Sheraton. Why? This particular Sheraton is known as the “original LA Beer” hotel as it’s bar is dedicated to pouring the best in California’s locally brewed beers. Starting at 12pm that afternoon, they’re celebrating the re-opening of their pool and poolside bar with a  beer tasting party featuring Cali’s finest brews from places like Strand, El Segundo, Hager 24, Taps, Bootleggers, Golden Road, Cismontane, Smog City and Bruery. The event on May 12th is $24 for twelve 4 oz. tastings—not a bad alternative to a boring layover or sitting in LAX traffic. Check out more info here.
