Neiman Marcus Last Call (Neiman Marcus)

Hear ye, Hear ye. Grab your boxes, carts or wagons and head to Theodore Payne for their super-duper Winter Plant Sale, tomatoes. The Jewish Women’s Theatre has added an exciting new element to the mix since moving into their new home, The Braid. The Autry is getting in to the food scene ladies with California style history. Also, there’s a very special networking event to jump start 2017 coming up that you should consider attending tomatoes. Speaking of epic, I just feel I need to give CA tomatoes a ray of hope when it comes to our longest drought in history by sharing “Curbed LA’s” recent article.  Just can’t help myself from throwing in this news tidbit.

Now is the absolutely, unequivocally, the perfect time to plant!  With all the rain we’ve had and will continue to receive the soil is chock full of wonderful nutrients like nitrogen, so newly planted succulents and native plants will thrive and grow. It is also the perfect time to hit the plant sale at Theodore Payne that specializes in  California Native Plants for your garden and Theodore Payne is always the “go to place” for ladies.

 Members (and if you aren’t you can join at the door) get a 15% discount and non-members get 10%.  And when you are browsing and purchasing be sure to get the expert advice of the TPF staff and volunteers.  They know their stuff about native plants ladies and they also carry a variety of succulents. And don’t forget that Theodore Payne made our nonprofit resource guide. So what you purchase there is tax-deductible and of course helps the organization to thrive and grow.


 The Braid Art Showsbraid gallery

I love the concept of The Gallery at The Braid. I’ve written about the JWT salon series theatre events before which I equally love but now in their new and permanent home The Braid  they’ve added an inspired new element to the mix.  Art.  The Gallery at The Braid is a beautiful art space dedicated to showing works of beauty and depth illuminating the human condition, often through a Jewish lens.  I highly recommend checking out all “The Braid” and all it has to offer tomatoes and it’s a lot gals.

Often, they curate their art shows to tie into the performances and events they present.  Their art shows feature new, emerging and established artists using a variety of mediums as well. Their next exhibit, “Nourishing Traditions” illuminates what connections California artists make between traditions, home and food with paintings and sculpture that will feed your souls.  Tomatoes, from any heritage, can enjoy this exhibit showing January 21st to March 5th.
