Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

It’s a little quiet on the event front, so here’s your short and sweet list of options to do tonight tonight: DRINKS
Silver Lake says goodbye to Stinkers the trucker bar tonight at 9 pm. To say farewell in style, Stinkers is offering $2 Colt 45 tall boys. Music will be provided by DJs Jimmy James and Eden Knievel. “Stinker's will reopen shortly in another incarnation, hungover but having shaved, showered and taken out the (white) trash.”

Admission to LACMA is free today, courtesy of Target. Exhibitions at the museum include Renoir in the 20th Century, which focuses on the last three decades of Renoir’s career following his rupture with impressionism. The museum is open until 8 pm tonight.

The New Beverly continues its Valentine’s Day double feature with David Lean’s Summertime, starring Katharine Hepburn entangled in a love affair with a married Rossano Brazzi at 7:30 pm followed by soap opera/social commentary All That Heaven Allows with Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman.

For food and wine lovers, the Monday night suppers at Lou are not to be missed. Tonight, Vinoterra winemaker Gogi Dakishvili from the republic of Georgia is Lou's special guest. Did you know that Georgia has the world’s oldest archeological evidence of grape winemaking? Possibly dating as far back as 6000 BC? He'll be giving a short chat on the subject at 7 pm, though dinner is being served from 6-11 pm. (The entree tonight is Smoked Niman Ranch pork loin, Santa Monica Mountain chanterelles, duck fat-fried potatoes, house-cured bacon.) The three-course dinner with five wine pairings is $55.
