Labor Day Weekend generally marks the end of summer, although in sunny L.A., that concept can seem pretty mute. Regardless, wave goodbye to the season at one of these six spots in the City Of Angels.
The Highlight Room
Atop Dream Hollywood, with 360 degree views, The Highlight Room will be hosting a Labor Day Backyard BBQ on Sunday. For $25, guests can indulge in the BBQ festivities by picking two of either the BBQ ribs, BBQ rubbed chicken, BBQ pulled pork or the Impossible Burger (the infamous vegetarian burger). They will also get a helping of mac & cheese and jalapeno cornbread. BBQers can hang out by the pool and sip on some cocktails or go into the grill if they wanted to munch on more dishes. Sunday 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
