The 2nd Annual “LOVE is a Warm Blanket” Drive for the Homeless aims to warm up the lives of the less fortunate during this cold time of year. A local resident, Angela Amirkhanian, 26, founded and launched “LOVE is a Warm Blanket” in 2012 as a simple act of goodwill. She received donations from friends, family and supporters from various social networking forums. Larger blankets and comforters were donated to the Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter in Downtown Los Angeles’s skid row.

To be ..or not to be…that is the question? For “Los Felizians” its a no-brainer! The Independent Shakespeare Company (ISC) brings the passion of the classics to the park for free. Since 2010, when the company moved their festival to Griffith Park’s Old Zoo, ISC has focused on diversity in theater trying to reach out to multi-generations and backgrounds. Tonight’s performance is “She Stoop’s to Conquer” by Oliver Goldsmith. You can check the schedule for other performances, such as Macbeth and As You Like It. They even offer pre-show performances by Los Angeles Artists on certain days so check the calendar and get there early to experience the entire event in its full capacity.
