The EM & Co boutique is hosting an opening cocktail and appetizer reception for Chris Callaway's first solo photography exhibit "Femme Fatale" tonight from 7-10 pm. His work explores the “dark side of female seduction through a series of portraits and fashion editorial photos.” DJ Vancans will also be on hand spinning original compositions.

Tonight’s the final event for OJO’s three-month residency for MOCA’s Engagement Party. The art collective’s members and special guests will provide attendees with a different kind of lecture experience. OJO members will stand next to the lectern and act as the house band, using audio effects to affect the audience’s reception of live speech. “Focusing on specific words and phrases in order to induce listeners to react in all sorts of ways, their interventions should lead to a chaotic and memorable lecture.” The Engagement Party runs from 7-10 pm tonight, and admission is free.

In June, Breadbar and Chef Nori of Ironori Concepts launched the “the hatchi series,” where a guest chef event showcases his or her work -- with the theme of eight (“hatchi” means eight in Japanese). Each chef’s menu features eight small plate courses (six savory items and two desserts) priced at $8 per dish. Guest Chef Roberto Cortez will take the helm tonight from 6-10 pm at BREADBAR Century City. All menu items are $8, and each guest must order a minimum of three dishes. ***THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.
