Turn over a new leaf.......take public transit to these October 2009 events (Part 1)

Southern Californians don’t experience the changing of the fall leaves, but what they do enjoy is the ability to experience a warmer climate; thereby, allowing them to participate in indoor and outdoor events for most of the calendar year without all of the constant rain, snow and other elements that their eastern neighbors experience.  Southern California's weather makes using public transit an affordable and smart choice when attending local events.  If you haven't tried it, below are just a few public transit friendly venues to help you get started.
