DOWNTOWN—With the cake-tastic installation Break Bread coming to a close, Think Tank Gallery (939 Maple Avenue) is hosting an incredible night of performances and booze, featuring Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil. First, enjoy the six, caked-out chambers designed by Scott Hove and Baker's Son before moving into the main gallery and lounge, where you can mingle with Zumanity performers before and after enjoying a few private events (snag tickets here before they totally sell out). The event starts at 4pm tomorrow, and it's a great place to grab a drink while taking in DTLA's Art Walk. The front art installation area remains free and open to the public until doors close at 1am.
