WEST HOLLYWOOD—We're unsure about this lomography thing, but it seems to be related to photography and cameras. But what we do know is that the first Lomography Gallery Store and official Lomography Embassy will open its doors on February 18, to much fanfare. A.k.a. a big party, which we're told will include tacos, tamales, live Mariachi music, and an ocean of drinks. We love lomography already! The party starts at 7pm at 7998 Santa Monica Blvd. RSVP at email@example.com [Racked Inbox]
