Pencil This In...Friday
Now Thanksgiving's over, the Christmas/holiday season is ushered right in. / Photo by Rebecca Joyce via LAist's flickr pool.
RED LINE PUB CRAWL: As you heard on LAist earlier, the MTA is running the Red Line until 3 am on the weekends until the end of the year. So do the safe thing this party season by staying off the roads when imbibing as many toddies as you want. There’s public transportation to the rescue. Now tonight’s organized Red Line pub crawl will begin at 8 pm at Traxx in Union Station and then make the trip around 9 to Hollywood’s Cahuenga corridor.
CLASSIC FILM:: The Gene Kelly-Debbie Reynolds-Donald O’Connor classic musical Singin’ in the Rain comes to the Egyptian Theatre tonight. It’s arguably one of the best movie musicals ever made. “Co-director Kelly (with Stanley Donen) shines as silent movie idol Don Lockwood, whose career (and leading lady, hilariously played by Jean Hagen) are imperiled by the coming of sound -- until he hooks up with lovely ingenue Debbie Reynolds. The brilliant supporting cast includes Millard Mitchell, Douglas Fowley and the great Cyd Charisse.”
FEST: Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way, it’s time for the Christmas holidays to begin, right? Pasadena gets a jump start today at 4 pm (on Holly Street between Raymond and Fair Oaks Avenue) with 30 tons of snow, a tree lighting, live reindeer fresh from the North Pole, kids crafts and activities, performances, trolley rides and … Santa, of course.
