  1. Even though I think I’ll be keeping it low key, at home in my pjs, it’s great to see that so much is going on in L.A. to celebrate this historic event!

  2. I think I’m going to bike over to the Pantry for breakfast at 6 a.m. and then go hang at L.A. Jive until 9 a.m. or so. Then I’ll go to work, listening on an old-school transistor radio on the way in.

    PSssst. It’s “Barnsdall.”

  3. I’ll be at the Art of Change ball…looking forward to getting sappy & sobby with a giant crowd of crazy people. :)

  4. Not listed even on the links is “Sierra Cup” here in Monrovia. They will have all the TV’s inside and the big screen on the patio tuned to the event. Great coffee, breakfast sandwiches etc. They will replay the it all again at 5:30PM for those that miss the morning event.
    409 S Myrtle Ave, Monrovia CA 91016 626-301-4214.

    It may be a bit more subdued than some of the bigger parties.

    I’ve got morning appts so I’ll be missing it.
