Happy Valentine's Day from the Griffith Park Bear

Last month we awwwww-ed over the City's Most Adorable Mystery, i.e. the bear at the Fern Dell entrance to Griffith Park's ever-evolving fashion statement and his unknown dresser. This morning a reader sent us this shot of the bear, who is dressed in some red-and-white heart-covered crocheted shortalls in honor of Valentine's Day. Like a big, smoochy gift to all Angelenos, this bear is a whole lot more charming than those cheesy street vendors' scary hot pink bears and plastic wrapped gift baskets and goodies--so maybe an evening stroll or drive in Griffith Park with your sweetie is in order this evening. (Psst, head up there to catch some of this town's loveliest make-out vistas. Maybe if you stop by Moby's you can score a free sweatshirt!)

If you want to keep up with what the bear is wearing (like surfer shorts, or, gasp!, nothing) he even has his own tumblr site.
