Get Out: 2 Bake Sales for Haiti, Photography at the Aquarium, Learn to Curl, Hipster RomCom at the New Bev

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Bake Sales For Haiti
There are two bake sales raising funds today for Doctors Without Borders. First there's a Vegan Bake Sale taking place at Locali in Franklin Village from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., one of many of its kind happening all over the country. As we mentioned earlier this week there's a Cookies Without Borders bake sale fundraiser happening today at Scoops in Melrose Hill from 2-5 p.m. (And if you can't make a Bake Sale today, there are some other dining out events tonight happening in support of Haiti relief and recovery efforts.)

Aquarium Photographer's Night
Tonight the Aquarium of the Pacific is letting photographers run wild (well, there are rules) in the venue. The Aquarium will be available to photographers for the sole purpose of getting their dream photos without having to worry about the general public either getting in their shots or being bothered by their equipment. Cost: $23.95 per person, $18.95 for Aquarium members. No other discounts or special offers will be accepted for this evening. 6:30-10 p.m. Purchase tickets online in advance.

Learn to Curl Open House
The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics are almost here, so why not learn what curling is all about beforehand? Tonight Hollywood Curling is hosting an Open House event at 6:15 p.m. at the Valley Ice Center (8750 Van Nuys Blvd Panorama City). It's $10 per person, and you will experience a full introduction to the sport, and some instruction. LAist's Christine Ziemba gave it a shot in September, and she said: "[I]f you're looking for something different to do, consider checking out one of the club's Sunday night learning sessions. We found a better appreciation of something that looks so simple to do on TV. "

Hipster RomCom Double Bill* @The New Beverly
How else can you describe an evening at the New Bev featuring two films that were made in the last decade and marry the malaise of youth and some excellent music to the theme of the fitfulness of love? First up, (500) Days of Summer (3:20 & 7:30) on the bill with High Fidelity (5:15 & 9:25). Admission is always for both films, but you can just watch one if you'd prefer.
