Things to do!

The Wedding Website of Catherine Russell and John Paul Kolaski
The wedding weekend will be full of festivities, however here are some fun things to do if you have time to spare!

Hike / Visit the Griffith Observatory

2800 East Observatory Road, Los Angeles, CA 90027
, (213) 473-0800

You can drive right up to the top to see great views of LA including the Hollywood Sign and visit the free Museum. If you're feeling adventurous and packed your sneakers, park at the bottom and hike up one of the many trails, just don't forget your water bottle of you opted for the hike!

El Matador Beach

32350 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA 90265
, (818) 880-0363

Fingers crossed we have good weather this week! Typical LA temps in March is around 70 degrees so for our friends and family coming in from Chicago/ Massachusetts hitting the beach might be a fun option. El Matador Beach is our favorite but we recommend any of the Malibu Beaches, and while you are in that area Duke's is one of our favorites and a great place to grab lunch!

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036
, (323) 857-6000

LACMA is also right next to The La Brea Tar Pits, The Peterson Car Museum & The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

The Original Farmers Market

6333 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036
, (323) 933-9211

Catherine + John's (and Silvio's) Favorite Sunday Night Spot

The Broad

221 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
, (213) 232-6250

This is an awesome contemporary art museum and is named for philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad. It is super close to the DTLA Hotels and wedding venue and they also offer free admission to all guests.


Some of our favorite DTLA restaurants: RedBird (New American) This restaurant is attached to our wedding venue and is one of our favorites (obviously) 114 E Snd Street Los Angeles, CA 90012 Bestia (Italian) In our opinion one of LA's best restaurants, make sure you make a reservation because this spot books up fast! 2121 E 7th Pl Los Angeles, CA 90021 Katsuya LA LIVE (Japanese) Right by the Crypto.com Arena (formally Staples Center) the is one of John’s former Restaurants too! 800 Olympic Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90015
