LA LIFE: Art Walk, The Taste, Bunny Museum
The Foodies over at the LA Times are bringing back “The Taste” where all flavors of food and people from every corner of LA are welcome Tomatoes. Did someone say, “Art Walk”? This Thursday San Pedro is jumpin’ with their “First Thursday Art Walk”. And OMG! Did you gals know we have a Bunny Museum?! Well we do!
Sept 1-3. LA Taste
The Taste hosted by the Los Angeles Times is back and is bigger and tastier than ever with dreamy and yummy tastes served up this holiday weekend. The massive LA Times food festival celebrates the best authentic food and drink in LA, with seminars, wine tastings, and, of course, tons of food from celebrity-name chefs and oodles of fun Tomatoes around every corner. Check it out gals.
The event will be held at Paramount Studios Backlot, which is one of the coolest studio backlots EVER. If nothing else tomatoes it’s a great way to see where movie magic happens. And if you are an LA Times subscriber, well, you are in luck because you can save $25 on tickets Hip Hip hooray!
Sept 7. San Pedro Art Walk
All you have to say is “Art Walk” and you pretty much get the drift Tomatoes. However, the San Pedro Art Walk, the first Thursday evening of every month, is unique. The charming San Pedro Art District resides in the quaint waterfront village with a small-town feel, historic architecture and Tivoli lights adorning the streets. Next up is this coming Thursday. A lovely way to spend your time and start your holiday weekend Tomatoes.
And let’s not forget Tomatoes the evening includes 40 open galleries & studios with a plethora of street vendors, free music, dancing and performances. Plus, there are plenty of places to shop for unusual items and gifts which is always music to my ears gals. Art galleries, shops and restaurants are open till 9:00 p.m. Some restaurants have a 1st Thursday Night Special. It’s a great way to experience Old San Pedro gals.
It might be considered one of LA’s most bizarre museums by KCET but bunnies always pull at my heartstrings. And really… who doesn’t love bunnies. Believe it or not bunnies are not just for Easter, they are a part of our everyday lives from literature to film to advertising to slang. The Bunny Museum’s collection of 33,000 artifacts & Guinness World Record certified is overwhelming but very well organized and curated into categories for a user-friendly experience. It’s a great museum for the kid in you and for the kiddies. So, hop hop your way to the “Hoppiest” place in the universe. Tee Hee!
I’d say it is a wonderful way to spend a few hours and if you take the kiddoes in your life, I’m sure they will be begging to go back. You might even spy some live rabbits that you can feed and pet. We can all thank Candace Frazee and her husband Steve Lubanski who started the collection in their home and when it became too big they created a new home on Lake Ave in Altadena. Each bunny related item has a story behind it Tomatoes. I love it when I discover a cool place in LA that I should have known about but didn’t. The journey of discovery in LA continues for this Tomato.
