Pencil This In: Wednesday

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

If you’re a fan the David Boreanaz-Emily Deschanel sexual tension on FOX’s Bones, then you’re in luck. The two co-stars as well as other cast members and crew are appearing at the Paley Center tonight to talk about the show.

7 pm // Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills // 465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills // $25.

Listen to Stephen Hawking (in real life!) as he talks about the black hole as a door to a different universe. Theories abound that the black hole’s ability to warp time can also lead to time travel. Hawking, though his body has been relegated to a wheelchair because of ALS, remains one of this (and last) century’s greatest minds. There are only 500 seats in the auditorium, so get there early.
