Crocheted Coral Reef

There are lots of events this weekend for the arts-minded person in Los Angeles. Get your knit-on at the HomeGirl Cafe Alameda and Bruno, Downtown, 2-5. It's Metro close, just east of Chinatown.
Track 16 Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica is continuing their exhibition, "Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef." I'll be there this Saturday from 2-4-ish for a workshop on crocheting with plastic bags that will precede the lecture about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It's fun just to walk around Bergamot and see what's showing at all of the other galleries.
Copro-Nason Gallery is having an opening that night: The Masters of Zap Comix, featuring original artwork by famous artists, R. Crumb, Robert Williams, Rick Griffin and more.

My show-biz guru, Billy Vera and his band, The Beaters are appearing later that evening on the SM Pier at Rusty's Surf Ranch.
The big event this Sunday is Pasadena's Doo Dah Parade. Our very good friend, Charles Phoenix is the GRAND MARSHALL of this event! Congratulations Charles!
It's a free day on Monday at the LA County Art Museum for everyone in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr's. Birthday.
Kingdom Day Parade is always entertaining. It starts at MLK and Crenshaw and continues to Leimert Park where there will be a festival. If you've never visited the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles, you really should. It's filled with cool shops, restaurants, clubs and art galleries.Hope to see you around town this weekend!

Ya know, I've been thinking about attending that same workshop. Hmmm. I checked the website again, do you think we have to bring anything, other than maybe our favorite crochet hook?

Hi Jenna!
As far as I know, you don't have to sign up ahead of time for the crochet with plastic workshop at Track 16 Gallery. I'm going to bring a few large crochet hooks, some plastic bags and a pair of scissors!
Hope to see you there!

There is some cool stuff happening around town. I love the doodah parade. My mom and her belly dancing friends were in it one year.
