Art Walk and Dancing after

As you all know our dear organizer is out of town, and me and Bo will be organizing this art walk for all you lovely people.....I had an idea ..let's make Bill jealous this time and make this an evening to remember tongue wink

I apologise it's a bit late, but here are the details for Thursday night -

1. We'll meet as usual at Pete's Cafe and bar at 6:00 P.M.
Address: 400 S. Main Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Pete's is a award winning American late-night cafe, with a good selection of food and drinks. Since it is a long (and interesting walk), we'll be eating (and of course drinking I have to mention that!!smile) at pete's.

Newbies - come early to mingle and get to know us...Regulars come early to mingle and get to know us again!!

We'll be out of Pete's and begin the art walk at 7:15. Since the art walk ends at 9:00 (though some galleries and lots of the excitement still lingers on till 10:00 - 11:00) we'll have to do the rest of socialising on the walk.

Check this map for the Galleries and Artwalk Route. We will be visiting galleries 3 to 19.

I was amazed last time to see so many people on downtown streets, there are even some bands playing on the sidewalks and even in the galleries. Most of the galleries also have free wine.

Free DASH shuttles would be running on the route shown on the map between 7 and 10 PM .These shuttles will be hosted by local historians Matt Goulet and Mike the Poet, providing fascinating information on the history of downtown Los Angeles.

If we have time and get adventurous we may board one of these and visit some of the scattered galleries.

We'll end our journey at Charlie O's
Address: 501 S. Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA, 90013

Charlie O's is a very cool, cavernous old cocktail lounge with a dance floor. It is located on the groundfloor of the famous Alexandria Hotel (one-time home to such movie stars as Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart and many others), in the heart of Downtown's Gallery Row.

The bar used to be a dive bar but it has been taken over by another management and has become a cool hangout place especially on artwalk night and comedy club nights. (which btw will be a future pub crawlers event)

- They have a cash only bar.
- Valet parking under the hotel for $6

Impress the bartender and order a Cocoa Puff--the bar's signature drink of drizzled Hershey's syrup on a martini glass, Van Gough double espresso, Kahlua and Bailey's.

I talked to the manager there, and he said on Thursday nights, the bar starts picking up around 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM. There are some gr8 eating places just across the street, so we would have time to rest our feet, eat and drink and get ready for some Thursday night dancing.

I will be mailing the contact no. of yours truly and Bo to YES and MAYBE RSVPs'. If you miss us at Pete's or get too involved with one of the art galleries or just want to join us for dancing at Charlie O's....dont hesitate to call us.

Don't hesitate to contact me or Bo if you have any questions regarding this event.

I have updated the event on the website also.
