HOLLYWOOD—There's a brand new farmers market that offers shoppers a great selection of locally grown fruits and veggies, gourmet items, booze, Bulgarini Gelato and the most spectacular view of Los Angeles: the Yamashiro Garden Market, on the grounds of the restaurant perched high above Franklin. The market is held from 5pm to 9pm each Thursday. 1999 N. Sycamore Ave. [Racked Inbox]
THIRD STREET—Tomorrow night, EM & Co is holding a reception/party for Cris Orfescu and his NANOART exhibit. The name refers to a concept explored by the artist: it's the transition of science through art by technology. In addition to art, there's music from DJ Gabriel Diggs, lite bites, beer, and cocktails. Party runs from 7 - 10pm, but the exhibit will be up until February 9. 7940 W. 3rd Street (323-782-8155) [Racked Inbox]
