Puppetry
Tonight is the premiere of an original one act performance piece with alternative puppetry over at the Electric Lodge--it's a solar powered theatre--in Venice. The Triumvirate Pi Theatre's latest show, "Does He Know?", explores broken relationships and the search for love through live actors interacting with various forms of puppetry. The show runs through next week on Saturdays and Sundays. Self-Guided Tour of Historic Pico-Union
Today marks the first day that you can take a self-guided tour in the Los Angeles Conservancy's bilingual Pico Union: Layers of History (.pdf). "Pico Union is among the city’s most architecturally diverse and distinctive communities." And so the tour begins into this city's fascinating history.

Spring Equinox Hike
Hello, Spring! Bring in the new season with an evening hike in the middle of Los Angeles at Franklin Canyon. The two hour "moderate" hike begins at 6 p.m. and is led by the William O. Douglas Outdoor Classroom, who will discuss seasonal changes, constellations and the planets. (Note: a listing in Outdoors Magazine does not provide a meeting place, but the park is small enough, we presume people meet at the Visitor Center)
