Nestled inside the Tom Bradley Room at L.A. City Hall were about 100 people, dressed in cocktail attire, enjoying performances by YouTube sensations Clara C. and David Choi. At the back of the room were tables filled with silent auction items, including tickets to see the L.A. Lakers and for Audrey’s Night Out Fashion Show in September (shameless self-promotion, I know). But this wasn’t a private concert for the lucky group — it was a fundraiser and a chance to showcase the inspiring Asian-American youth of today.
What’s there to do during the dreaded Carmageddon weekend? I know some people are opting to stay home so they’re not stuck on the roads all day, but this is the worst week to do it! There’s a lot (and I mean A LOT) of food, drinking and live music in this week’s lineup of events. So fight the traffic for a bit this weekend — it’ll be well worth the drive.
