Weekend Guide Dec. 16 + 17 +18

The weekend is upon us, are you ready for it? I’m sure you’ll all be busy running around doing last minute holiday things… but check out all of these events if you can. Hopefully you got your ticket to the Sarah Silverman show at Largo tonight, because they have already sold out. I will be there, but if you are out of luck, chck out these other events instead.

FRIDAY Dec. 16th:

Olvera Street is having their holiday fair and nightly candle light procession tonight. The celebration begins at 5:30p and get ready to sing some carols (in English + Spanish) and crack some pinata’s.

If Olvera Street is too far away, and you want to stick to the valley, check out NoHo Commons Holiday Party. Check out the artwork of Cella Gallery and Rico Adair Gallery and enjoy some free beverages.

SATURDAY Dec. 17th:

This 826 LA sounds awesome. On Dec 17, the Spread The Word fundraiser is happening at the Mark Moore Gallery. Tickets are $25 and this includes listening to a set by DJ Mister Amigo and Jason Bentley as well as free beer tasting and yummy food trucks. Artwork is for sale by a bunch of awesome artists, and from what I hear it’s all at awesome prices. This is a great place to pick up a gift for that unique relative that already owns one of everything. Check it out!

At 5pm on Saturday, the 3rd Annual Santa Monica Pub Crawl is happening for charity. So get your festive gear on and get ready to drink. Tickets are $10 and get all the info online HERE. There’s even unlimited bus rides for $4. Get a team together and get ready to have some scavenger hunt/ bar crawl fun.
