It's officially spring on March 20th, date of the vernal equinox, and people are eager to celebrate the season's rampant fertility. Thus, it's no surprise to see so many scheduled events devoted to the welfare of children, animals and the planet. Today's also St. Patrick Day so everyone's going Green in some capacity. On Friday, Dionne Warwick will perform before a heavy-hitting Industry crowd at "A Stellar Night 2010" gala presented by the Starlight Children's Foundation. The Humane Society honors Tippi Hedren at its Genesis Awards ceremony on Saturday. And don't miss Dr. Paul Apodaca lecture on Archaeoastronomy at the Museum of the American Indian on Saturday afternoon.
