Friday, 2/1/13: The Silver Lake Chorus
Looking for things to do in L.A. this weekend? Kick off your weekend with a “symphonious blend of joy-mongering” with the Eastside’s own Silver Lake Chorus performing tonight at Occidental College’s beautiful Herrick Chapel…for FREE!

When: Fri. 2/1, 8PM
Where: Herrick Chapel, Occidental College, 1600 Campus Rd., Los Angeles, 90041

Sunday, 2/3/12: Superbowl – Avoid or Partake
Avoid the obnoxious sports bars and check out The Faculty in East Hollywood. Don’t let it’s compact size fool you – there’s ample seating, lots of flat screens and delicious food. Want to avoid the SB while sipping on a handcrafted cocktail? Mosey on over to The Thirsty Crow in Silver Lake. You’ll find lots of bourbon and not a screen or jersey in sight.
The Faculty, 707 N Heliotrope Dr Los Angeles, CA 90029
