Return of the Neon Cruise: back by popular demand

MONA busWe're doing another LA Observed night on the world-famous Neon Cruise on Saturday, October 16. It's always a fun few hours being tourists in our own city, getting shown the skyline sights of Downtown, Hollywood, and Wilshire while being enlightened and entertained by urban anthropologist and neon expert Eric Lynxwiler. This year the route has changed a bit to include a fresh look at the former Route 66 in West Hollywood. We get some return visitors each time — and this might be your last chance to take the original tour before the Museum of Neon Art moves out of Downtown. Details after the jump.

Here's the deal. We meet at MONA, 136 West 4th Street, a little before 7:30 p.m., enjoy some refreshments, then board the open-air bus. The museum gives a nice break to LA Observed readers: $48 per person. Sign up via the Museum of Neon Art website or call MONA at (213) 489-9918 and say you're with the LA Observed group.
