Things to do in BLR...when you have been before

Upcoming trip to BLR will include some free time. I've been multiple times so have done many of the main tourist things:
  • Mysore + Palace
  • Bangalore Palace
  • HAL Museum (my favourite)
  • Cubbon Park and Museums
  • Lalbagh Gardens
  • Various Temples
  • Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace
What have I missed that I should do? On my last trip to Mysore I wanted to have the driver stop at Srirangapatna but he said it wasn't worth it. I'm still a bit curious about going there, but it's a long drive so if it isn't that good, then I should probably do something else.

I'm there for a weekend. I'd prefer local or day-trip type activities as I also have some evening commitments in the city.

Lots of cool pubs and microbreweries apparently (haven't been but have many friends there, I spend lots of time in HYD)
