Plus, TEAM LA, STAPLES Center’s sports apparel headquarters, will have a huge sale featuring 40% off most items, including Lakers, Clippers and Kings merchandise.

“We chose the date of June 3rd specifically because there are no other major events scheduled at L.A. LIVE including STAPLES Center and Microsoft Theater, creating a rare “dark night” at L.A. LIVE,” said Natalie Matsumoto, Director of Marketing, L.A. LIVE. “This makes it a perfect night to easily come to our L.A. LIVE restaurants to experience all that they have to offer and will be a great place for our downtown neighbors to unwind from the work week and kick off the weekend.”

Participating L.A. LIVE restaurants will feature $5 food and drink menus until 10PM including Katsuya, Rock‘N Fish, Red Mango, Rosa Mexicano, Tom’s Urban, Smashburger, Live Basil Pizza, Lawry’s Carvery, The Mixing Room, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill and Triple 8.
