What’s on tap for a Tuesday night in LA? Here’s a lineup we picked out for you: Spooky cartoons at Cinefamily, an evening with Mrs. Brady at the Paley Center, Hector Tobar at Skylight Books and wine and jazz at Palate in Glendale. Read on for all the details.
Tonight at 7 pm, the Paley Center presents an evening with Florence Henderson, better known to millions as Mrs. Carol Brady. She’s had years under her belt as a singer, actress and TV personality, and tonight she’ll discuss her life on television and sign copies of her newly published autobiography, Life Is Not a Stage. Tickets: $20.
Hector Tobar, Los Angeles Times columnist and Pulitzer-winning journalist, will read from and sign from his highly-anticipated new novel, The Barbarian Nurseries tonight at 7:30 pm. Tobar’s book is being called “the great panoramic social novel that Los Angeles deserves--a twenty-first century, West Coast ‘Bonfire of the Vanities.’”
Palate Food + Wine in Glendale holds its Tuesday night wine tasting tonight from 6:30 to 9 pm. For $10, customers get four tasting pours. Tonight’s lineup features an array of natural wines from winemakers Tracey and Jared of Donkey & Goat Winery, including Cuvee Grenache Rose, Stone Crusher Roussanne, Improbable Chardonnay and Old Vine Carignane. Music begins at 8 pm.
Cinefamily’s resident animation historian Jerry Beck programs his “monster mash-up” of classic cartoon monsters, spooks and witches on 35mm and 16mm film prints on the big screen. Tonight’s lineup includes Casper the Friendly Ghost and Witch Hazel along with a few creepy independent films. The event starts at 8 pm. Tickets: $12.
