The bituminous goo filling La Brea Tar Pits has been bubbling out of the ground for tens of thousands of years, and it's likely not going anywhere anytime soon, so what place could be better to wallow in deep thoughts about the eternal mysteries that surround us (and well up under us) than at Late Night Fridays at the La Brea Tar Pits? The museum's curators have a curious idea of what the phrase "late night" means, though, as the summerlong, weekly soirees run from only 5 to 8 p.m. But after the museum closes, stick around for behind-the-scenes tours and witness morbidly fascinating excavations of bits of bones and matter from extinct mammals and the occasional human, along with screenings of 3-D films such as Werner Herzog's solemnly reverential documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
