Venice Sign Lighting Robert Downey Jr and Bill Rosendahl

Holiday Events in Venice + Santa Monica on Friday, December 2, 2016!

venice-holiday-sign-lighting-2014-pink-mike-bonin-akff-logoVenice Sign Lighting

The Annual Venice Sign Lighting is taking place at the intersection of Windward Ave and Pacific Ave starting at 6pm and ending around 9pm. There are booths from local businesses, live music and festivities happening with the main event around 8pm. That’s the sign lighting where the Venice sign changes to red and green Christmas colors! Typically there is a special celebrity guest to pull the switch for the lights: in 2014 Pink was the special guest and Robert Downey Jr was the first special guest, pictured above with belovedCouncilman Bill Rosendahl.

Montana Ave Holiday Walk in Santa Monica

This is another annual event that thousands attend with the majority of shops open  on Montana Ave in Santa Monica, spanning  10th to 17th streets. Special festivities abound with strolling musicians and bands, Santa Clause in several locations, special sidewalk sales and more. Starts early at 5 – 9pm. Get there early to find parking and pay attention to signs – many are 2 hour parking only.

How Did You Spend Your Time At AKFF?

How Did You Spend Your Time At AKFF?

The Week After AKFF Is Always Hard But Here Are Some Highlights To Make You (and The AKFF Team) Relive Last Friday

loving-churros-from-ridges-churro-barIt was like every other evening on First Fridays, clusters of people jumping from one food truck to another filled Abbott Kinney Blvd. Our first stop was Ridges Churro Truck, where the team had a delicious Nutella churro covered in vanilla ice cream. However, their most popular and favored dessert by many AKFF attendees was their Fruity Pebbles Churro.

shuhari-sampling-teasAfter our churro we stopped by Shuhari Matcha Cafe, a new cafe on Abbot Kinney. The cafe had Halloween treats and Japanese tea beautifully presented, along with samples of their teas. We sampled the Yuzu Chicken, a peppery, tasty and filling tea! We then paid a visit to our favorite Global Party People at Bulldog Realtors where their mixes and friendly vibes could not stop AKFF attendees from stopping by and checking out their art and fun dance party.

Venice License Plate Art by Jon Grauman

Further down the boulevard, VMW Gallery held an art show where you can find cool Venice metal license plates by Jon Grauman. The show also included local artist David Katzner’s photography of sunsets he has taken all over the world. Though this little gem was further down the boulevard it was worth the extra walk!

How about a weekend getaway?

Jeremy-Kidd-Big-Horn-Palm-DesertIf so, check out Venice Artist Jeremy Kidd’s art in the Palm Springs area at Imago Gallery. Jeremy’s work is super large scale photography that’s culled from his hundreds of photos he takes of desert and urban landscapes seen in a sculptural form. You really have to see it, as words can’t describe his art adequately.  The gallery is near El Paseo, the Abbot Kinney Bl of Palm Desert, with shops, restaurants and numerous art galleries.

Imago Galleries 45-450 CA-74, Palm Desert, CA 92260 Tues – Sat 11am – 5pm
See more art on Jeremy’s website: jeremykidd.com
