On the last Sunday of the month starting in March 2010, LAVA welcomes interested individuals to gather on the third floor of the historic Clifton’s Cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles (noon-2pm), for a loosely structured conversational Salon featuring short presentations and opportunities to meet and connect with one another. If you’re interested in joining LAVA as a creative contributor or an attendee, we recommend Salon attendance as an introduction to this growing community. We also recommend the shortbread.
• Quirky songstress and LAVA Visionary The Ukulady offers a Salon program of interactive craft-making & musical mirth.
• LAVA Visionary Harvey Sid Fisher will bring his body, his voice, his songs, his mind, his humor, and his guitar and expects some parts to be ruthlessly entertaining.
• LAVA co-founder Kim Cooper will be bringing offbeat board games from her collection (and encouraging others to bring in their favorite obscure games) for a casual post-lunch play-a-thon. Come try your luck at Chutzpah (aka Jewish Monopoly”), “Manhunt, Art Linkletter’s House Party and other oddities.
Clifton’s Cafeteria is at 648 South Broadway, near the corner of 7th Street. There are numerous paid parking lots nearby, and the closest Metro station is Pershing Square. Clifton’s is online at http://www.cliftonscafeteria.com
