Get Out: Sunday
SUSTAINABLE SUNDAYS: EAT IT UP
Learn how you can be "Eating Greener" via a 40 minute lecture, 20 minute cooking demo and 15 minute Q &A with Eco-Chef Aaron French. It's part of Sustainable Sundays, a new program at the Natural History Museum, which allows visitors the opportunity to learn from museum scientists and guest researchers about international conservation issues. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the door; $9 for adults and $2 for kids. Following the event, Conservation International's Jen Morris will also be presenting information about investing in global pro-conservation, small- and medium-sized businesses at 2:30 p.m.
EAT TO HELP
Speaking of eating and greening, it's the 22nd Annual National Kidney Foundation of Southern California's Great Chefs Benefit, going on this afternoon from 12-3:30 at CBS Studio Center in Studio City. This year's focus is on "Go Green, Go Organic" and features Chef of Honor Gino Angelini and Go Green Go Organic Host Chef Govind Armstrong. Tickets are $150.
SO LONG, WISHES...
It's time for Yoko Ono's Wish Trees in Pasadena to leave. It's a two part-process; the first of which takes place today when the "wishes will be 'harvested' by a team of volunteers organized by the Armory Center for the Arts, the collaborator with One Colorado on this art project, Sunday, November 9 from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M. They will then be sent to Yoko Ono, to be joined with others from around the world." Next week the 21 crape myrtle trees will be relocated to Arlington Garden.
Other Things to Do Today: Get nostalgic at The Onyx Revival, go to Disneyland before it's taxed, have brunch at the Redwood like a respectable hillbilly, check out some Danish films on the last day of the Fest at Arclight, or grab a sweatshirt and see a free outdoor staged reading.
