Friday Events:
Compatto Yarn Salon is having a "Knit 'n Sip" evening. Call this great little Santa Monica yarn shop for info: 310/453-2130.
My old friend, Doug MacLeod is performing at McCabe's Guitar Shop. Doug and I were blues d.j.s on public radio at the same time. Once in awhile, we were guests on each other's shows. He's an excellent singer/songwriter/humorist and musician.
Another one of my favorite groups, I See Hawks in L.A., is performing at the Cinema Bar on Sepulveda Blvd., just north of Washington Blvd., WLA.
Saturday Events:
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." This show continues through February 28. It's a must-see!

From 3:30-5:30, the Fairview Knitters will be meeting at the Fairview Branch of the Santa Monica Library, Ocean Park & 21st, Santa Monica.
Our friend and fellow L.A. Conservancy Mod Com member, Pete Moruzzi will be reading from his book "Havana Before Castro: When Cuba Was a Tropical Playground" at the Santa Monica main library at 2pm.

On the third Saturday of every month, 10 a.m. the L.A. Conservancy hosts their "Union Station Walking Tour". Call the Conservancy for ticket info: 213/623-2489. If you take this tour, you'll be across the street from Olvera Street (fabulously entertaining) and right near Chinatown. This weekend is Chinatown's celebration for Chinese New Year, the Year of the Ox. It should be quite festive!
Hope to see you around town!
