Weekly What To Do: More Than 24 Hours of Things To Do

 Burp! Excuse me, I drank so much soda pop at Galco's Soda tasting last week. Though that soda window may have popped, we have many more events to drink up. The odd artsy idea of seeing a clock be displayed through film is back in LA for twenty-four hours. I say just leave it on a TV and and let it play in a LACMA lobby.
