Guerilla Gorilla Thursdays Tonight @ Ghettogloss

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Some may ask why Ghettogloss wants to have some douche walking around in a gorilla suit every Thursday, but we at LAist accept it for what it is: another excuse to be ridiculous in Silver Lake.

This Ghettogloss place describes themselves as a "Fine Art Gallery, Art Rentals, Retail Store & More". But we can only assume when they say more, they mean some poor guy sweating it out in a gorilla suit so that drunk art groupies can gab him and take a hilarious new Myspace pictures for all their friends to enjoy.

But of course the free booze, frozen bananas, and a 16mm showing of King Kong (not certain what version) doesn't hurt the cause. The only thing that can make photo opps with the gorilla suit guy better is to be wasted off of free booze to the point that you might barf up frozen bananas, riiiiiiight?

Plus maybe someone might enjoy or buy some art, anything is possible.

Ghettogloss is located at 2380 Glendale Blvd. in Silver Lake, 7pm-11pm
