In case you're wondering what people do for fun in a prize-winning neighborhood, here's a sample.
Filmmobile: The official traveling vehicle of the Echo Park Film Center will be guest of honor at a party this very evening (Wednesday, 7 p.m.).
According to a communication from the EPFC:
When you move to a new house you have a "house-warming" party and when you get a big blue bus that teaches film and screens movies you have a "FILMMOBILE-WARMING" party!
Please join us Thursday, October 9th as we "officially" welcome the filmmobile to the Echo Park community. Even though the bus has already traveled the country teaching film and video, screening films and celebrating art and creation - we have not had a proper "Meet & Greet".
So please join us for a night of Vegan Hotdogs, movies, the launch of the City of Angels DVD, tours of the bus, laughter, fun and joy for all!
The next one, well, um, it took place yesterday. But it's worth mentioning because not everyone knows that our favorite patrolman, Ed -- whom many of us know as the gentleman who cruises the neighborhood for Select Patrol, keeping an eye on things, an agent of order -- is a maker of music. In his other guise, Ed is a flamenco guitarist who serenaded the syrah grape harvesters-partyers at Joe and Heather D'Augustine's home and vineyard in Elysian Heights a couple of weeks ago. Ed also was scheduled to perform last night at City Sip, the new wine bar on Sunset Boulevard. No doubt he sent hearts beating to wild and unlawful heights.
City Sip advertised:
Ed, our local flamenco guitarist will be gracing us with his organic music this Wednesday evening from 6pm - 8pm. ... Pairs well with a glass of Tempranillo (several to choose from!) and the Spanish Chorizo Plate.
How many of us can claim that distinction? So many people I know pair well with chardonnay.
