Don't Drink & Drive, Drink & Walk

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If walking the “self-guided” tour of downtown’s art galleries during the Downtown LA Art Walk isn’t your idea of a good time, consider being guided by a poet who plies you with alcohol and whispers words of poetry in your ears at each stop. Sound better? We thought so.

Poet Ed Rosenthal and Teka-Lark Lo lead the Poet’s Art Walk tomorrow night and you’d be crazy to miss it. Consider it guidance for those afraid of self-guidance. Or a great reason to get off your duff and walk the city – without a car, without a bike, without a plane or a train! (Perhaps we should lead the tour?)

The night starts off with Green Schnapps (in honor of Lord Byron) at Lost Souls Café at 6:30pm. From there, the walking/drinking/reading art tour will wend its way through Gallery Row:
7:10pm @ Crewest Gallery – Scotch in honor of Bukowski
7:20pm @ Stella Dottir – Gin in honor of Dorothy Parker
7:40pm @ Metropolis Books -- Vodka in honor of Frank O’Hara
8:10pm @ Pharmaka Gallery – Free choice in honor of School of Poets
8:25pm @ El Nopal Press Gallery – Rum in honor of Frida Kahlo
8:45pm @ Red Dot – Two buck chuck in honor of the LA Poetry scene
9:00pm @ Pete’s Café – Drinking & eating and who knows what else…
