It's Arts Month!
Mark your calendars: January 2009 is LA Arts Month. Through community outreach, ticket giveaways, and a viral word-of-mouth, print, and radio campaign, the arts community is urging Angelenos to enjoy the best the art world has to offer without leaving LA. Whether visiting a local gallery or museum, catching a show at a small theater, or getting a taste of a multi-cultural festival, the point is to seek out new cultural experiences.
Olga Garay (Gaa-RYE), Executive Director, Department of Cultural Affairs
Diane Rodriguez, Associate Producer, Director of New Play Production, Center Theatre Group

Charles Phoenix - Mr. Doo Dah!
Charles Phoenix - pop-culture expert with a passion for mid-century American culture, impresario of slide shows, and tour guide - is adding another feather to his cap. He will stand on the tail-gate of a red 1964 Ford station wagon venture as Grand Marshall of the 2009 Doo Dah Parade, the irreverent twisted sister alternative to the more civilized Rose Parade. Stepping out at 11:30 on Sunday, January 18, "paraders" strut their stuff while parade-goers line up for the fun.

The Widow Clicquot and her
In her latest book, “The Widow Clicquot,” author Tilar Mazzeo tells the intriguing story of a young French widow who became one of the richest women of her lifetime. She was the world’s first great businesswomen, taking over her late husband’s wine business in the wake of the Napoleonic wars. Still a legend in France, Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin built the Veuve Clicquot champagne empire at a time when women simply didn’t control their financial fates. Patt talks with Mazzeo about this captivating historical figure and the legacy she’s left behind.
Tilar Mazzeo, author and cultural historian; in addition to “The Widow Clicquot,” she is also the author of “Back Lane Wineries of Sonoma.”
