Angelus Temple, Echo Park
"City of Seekers" Tour

This is a very busy weekend in the SouthLand! On Saturday morning, we'd love to see you with your knitting and/or crocheting at the once-a-month WeHo SnB, from 10am to noon at the Original Farmers Market, upstairs dining area. I really like this get-together. It's nice to get over to the Farmers Market early in the morning before all the crazy Saturday shoppers get there. It's easy and fast to get a delicious breakfast at one of the many food stands and then take it upstairs, eat and then get down to some serious crafting with the WeHo gang!
If you still want to knit some more on Saturday with a creative group, head on over to the Fairview Branch of the Santa Monica Library, Ocean Park and 21st, 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, Community Room.
The L.A. Conservancy's Modern Committee is conducting their super cool tour, "City of Seekers" on Saturday. It's a self-driving, docent tour of five different spiritual locations in L.A. I have never been inside any of the sites, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm sure that there are still tickets available for this once-in-a-lifetime tour.
Esotouric is holding a tour on Saturday called "Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles." It starts at noon at one of my favorite hang-outs, Philippe's French Dip on Alameda Street, downtown L.A.

The wonderful exhibit, "Nine Lives: Visionary Artists from L.A." continues at the Hammer Museum in Westwood, including the knitted pieces of our local L.A. knitster g.f., Lisa Anne Auerbach. I'm working on getting a group together for Saturday, April 18th to tour this exhibit and knit-in-public in the beautiful Hammer Museum Courtyard. Mark your calendars. Stay tuned for updates.
The NorthEast L.A. Second Saturday Gallery Night should be entertaining this month. Madame X will be at Future Studio; Lalo Garcia will be at the SouthWest Museum; and Mor York Gallery is ALWAYS entertaining!

I read about the California Folk Art Museum's exhibit of 200 Years of Black Paper Dolls. This is a unique musuem on L.A.'s Miracle Mile with an excellent gift shop!

Billy Shire Fine Arts Gallery on Washington, just west of Fairfax in Culver City is having an opening on Saturday night. Artist, Gregg Gibbs, among others, is exhibiting. Larry does photo work for Gregg, so we'll be there. The Shire Gallery openings are always fun.
Sunday is a free day....maybe brunch....maybe chores.....who knows?

Baby, THANK YOU for always providing us with so many interesting goings-on in and around our area. Even if I never physically attend one, I really appreciate learning about what is available, and passing the info on to others. We really should be paying you for this.

Carla just asked me what you have been up to, so I read her your blog. She sends her love.
