Happy Birthday (and other January events)

The first weekend in January I won't be able to hold my usual Saturday office hours, even though I have enjoyed meeting so many interesting people so far.

That day, January 05, the Marion Davies House will be closed, both for a wedding and because of the special events on Sunday, when the birthday bash happens.

I will be there, probably shooting still images. If you see me, please say hi!

Meanwhile, the flash fiction workshop on 14 January is getting very full, so if you intend to come, please make a reservation.

For Sunday, here is something from the main page of the site's website, as a reminder:

Happy Birthday Marion!

Happy Birthday Marion

Sunday, January 6
11 am - 2 pm

In honor of her birthday, Santa Monica Conservancy docents turn the spotlight on Marion Davies: actress, philanthropist, famed party hostess and mistress of media tycoon William Randolph Hearst at Davies's 1928 Julia Morgan designed Guest House. From 11am-1:30pm guests may tour the historic Guest House, view photos of Davies and join in this year's dancing with Rusty Frank's Lindy by the Sea Dancers.  A 30-minute swing dance lesson will be offered at 12pm by world-renowned instructor Giovanni Quintero, and a special birthday tribute to Marion will begin at 1:30pm. Guests are invited to come in their favorite Gold Coast era attire or dress as if attending one of Marion's famed costume parties.

Event is free, reservations recommended. Parking is available for $3/hr or $8/day.
