Three Things to check out - September 29 - October 5, 2008

Here are three things happening this week in the Los Angeles region you should check out!

1) Los Angeles is truly a diverse community, isn't it? This coming weekend, celebrate Lithuanian heritage at the Los Angeles Lithuanian Fair at St. Casimir's church in Los Feliz. There'll be folk dancing, music, art - and don't forget food!

2) The Theodore Payne Foundation holds its annual Fall Festival and plant sale in October. If you're a member, you can go to the plant sale early October 3 and 4. If you don't join the Foundation, you can still go to the sale on October 11 and 12. The Foundation promotes, preserves, and educates the community about the native plants of Southern California.

3) The Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga holds a fundraiser for its Americana Museum project with a celebration of Woody Guthrie on October 4. Theatricum founder Will Geer was a friend of Guthrie's and the singer often stayed in a wooden shed on the property here when he came to Los Angeles. The event includes readings and music, and a buffet dinner in the garden.

Folk dancing and food - that's all it takes to rope me in.
There is always so much to do in SoCal and so much to see.



It seems to be a lot of great things going on over there...

I am probably going to the Theodore Payne thing. It's been on my calendar!

And while I'm there, I'm going to look for some literature to leave on the doorstep of my idiot neighbors who just put pampas grass in their yard. It should be a crime to sell that stuff.
