SILVER LAKE—Too many eastside kitties rescued by Silver Lake's Luxe Paws organization have just one thing on their Christmas list: a loving forever home. The non-profit once again partners up with Los Angeles County Store (4333 Sunset Boulevard) this Saturday for a festive event. In addition to providing free gift wrapping when you purchase the store's signature LA-made goods (donations for their animal-aiding efforts are encouraged), they'll be bringing over a gaggle of cute kittens up for adoption. Stop by from 2-5pm to meet the furry friends and get your last minute gifts purrfectly packaged.
ARTS DISTRICT—We can't be the only ones who are slowly succumbing to the typical holiday stresses (last minute shipping, end-of-year work deadlines, mall parking lots, etc), which is why we are 100% behind Shreebs Coffee's (527 Colyton Street) free yoga session this Saturday morning, so we can kick-off the weekend with a bit of chill. The hour-long, public practice lead by Sara Schwartz starts at 9am and guests will be treated to a gift from sponsor Fabletics, plus nourishment from The Juice and Amazebowls. To attend, RSVP here and head over to the green with your own mat, dressed in your fave activewear.
ARTS DISTRICT—Saturday night, MAMA Gallery (1242 Palmetto Street) welcomes artist Lisa Solberg back for a brand new exhibition. "Mister Lee's Shangri-La" is an immersive, multi-media installation that includes the creation of a plant-filled nightclub, choreography, and even a signature scent created by Solberg. The interactive piece, fresh from its preview at Art Basel, holds a reception from 7-10pm, and will remain at the gallery through January 23rd.
