Shangri-La, Birdies, Sunsets, Disney Tour
Bye, Bye July. Halloo August! You can have it all with “Bird Walks”, from the Los Angeles Audubon Society. “Cocktails in Historic Places” is happening at the Shangri La. The “Sights and Sips” Evening Cocktail Cruise is a relaxing way to escape. And you can do more at The Disney Concert Hall than see a concert. Happy August ladies!
August 1-2. Birdie Walks
If you love the outdoors, walking and birds then the LA Audubon Society has got your first Saturdays, first Sundays, second Sundays of the month “Bird Walks” and so much more. Wow! Tomorrow from 9am to noon you can enjoy the “Open Wetlands” of Ballona Salt Marsh with its special ecosystems. Plus the buckwheat is blooming which means spotting butterflies as well. And Sunday the coastal mountains of Topanga Canyon and the birdies that reside there are all yours from 8am to noon. Wonderful ways for a tomato to spend weekend mornings. Get more info.
August 7. Shangri-La Cocktails
The historic Shangri La Boutique Hotel (built in 1939) in Santa Monica has undergone a $30 million redesign and it is the site of the next “Cocktails in Historic Places” hosted by The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles. Experience what Presidents and movie stars did in this timeless example of Streamline Moderne architecture perched above Santa Monica Beach. What could be better than cocktails in an art deco bar rooftop bar to ring in the welcome weekend ladies? Get more info.
August 5 – Sept. 23. Sunset Cruise
The perfect mid-week break with complimentary appetizers and relaxing background music and specially priced cocktails. Scheduled to coincide with local yacht clubs’ “Beer Can Sailboat Races”, you’ll get the perfect picturesque So Cal view. From cozy inside seating to outdoor decks open to the evening sky, there’s no better midweek break. It is certainly a way to cool off from the summer heat and get calm after the stresses of the week.

Walt Disney Concert Hall Tours
I just think it is one of the most beautiful modern buildings EVER and call me a clueless tomato but I did not know that it had tours both guided and self-guided of the entire complex! Why is that so cool? Well, there is more than meets the eye to our concert hall. Not only do you get to tour much of the inside spaces but there is also a library/gallery AND a garden. Who knew? Not me…maybe you. But for those of you that didn’t know, this is a great summer outing for tomatoes and your friends and family. Get more info.
