In L.A. This Weekend

We'll be heading to the desert this weekend for a bit of rest and relaxation. HOWEVER, there are always plenty of things to do in L.A. on a beautiful Spring weekend!
I'm sorry to be missing the Fairview Knitters group for the second time this month. They will meet this Saturday from 3:30-5:30 at the Fairview Branch of the Santa Monica Library, Ocean Park and 21st St., in the Community Room. This gang has really grown since we've started the Ravelry group!
Merna let me know about the Multi-Cultural Weaving Expedition at the L.A. Arboretum in Arcadia. This Saturday, 3/28/2009 The Southern California Hand-Weavers Guild presents an Introduction to the Magic of Weaving. (From the website): Join the Southern California Handweavers’ Guild for a hands-on afternoon exploring the magic of weaving. Several members of SCHG will be on hand to help you work through projects on a variety of looms. You’ll experience many different styles of weaving and learn a little about weave structure. And you’ll be amazed seeing how the colors you select become even more magical when woven together. Free with admission. Introduction: 10:00am-12:00noon, Workshop 1:00-5:00pm.

The Annenberg Center for Photography is finally open to the public in Century City. It's in the space where my beloved Shubert Theater used to be, right next to the newish CAA building, 2000 Avenue of the Stars. The Museum is free to the public. You just have to pay for parking. I'm thinking that it would be best to park over at the Westfield Mall and then walk a block or two to the Museum. I'm really looking forward to touring this new building.

Esotouric is conducting "Pasadena Confidential," a tour of historic crimes in Pasadena on Saturday...always an entertaining pastime. If you decide to go on this tour, try to get the bus to stop at the Pie 'n Burger on California Blvd., just east of Lake Ave. for lunch. The burgers and pie are legendary!
Have an excellent weekend!

DEFINITELY park at the mall - I work in the plaza, and even my dad (who is by no means a cheapskate) balked at the prices they charge in our garage! (Although, I think you can get validation of some sort if you buy something...)

That handweaving guild sounds tempting (have you been following Knit & Tonic foray into weaving?), but you know how much I like getting up at the crack of noon...

I went on a search to find the best apple pie in the area and it was Pie n Burger hands-down! Have fun in the desert!
