Feeling some FOMO? Don’t worry, you’ve got options:

The Museum of Ice Cream

WHERE: 2018 E 7th Place

WHEN: Through May 29

WHAT: A museum where you pay $29 ($18 for kids) to go through differently themed rooms designed to exalt the beauty of ice cream. And, of course, trying new frozen treats in each room.

OUT Web Fest

WHERE: YouTube Space LA and Downtown Independent

WHEN: May 12-14

WHAT: Experience LA’s only festival devoted to short digital films by LGBTQ+ creators, presented by queer streaming service Revry and focused on the future of queer entertainment in the digital age.

WHY: It’s the future, people.

National Public Gardens Day

WHERE: The Getty Center

WHEN: May 12

WHAT: See the beauty of the Getty gardens in full bloom, and celebrate spring with a few herb-infused cocktails along the way.

WHY: It’s always good to stop and smell the flowers.

Yumi Sakugawa Discusses “The Little Book of Life Hacks”

WHERE: Skylight Bookstore

WHEN: May 10, 7:30 p.m.

WHAT: The graphic artist and author of “I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You” navigates the trials and tribulations of “adulting” in her new book.
