“Blame it on the Boogie”

Who can resist a classic MJ tune? No one I know. While yesterday was very heartbreaking with the passing of our beloved Michael, I must admit that I was never so energized by hearing his music – and I LOVE to rock out to MJ. We have been blessed in the last 24 hours with more Michael Jackson music than we have heard in a long time, so while I am devastated that the King may never collaborate again with Jay Z, I am completely loving the MJ craze that is happening everywhere I turn. Even KCRW played MJ for hours straight last night. And my coworker is finding amazing MJ raver remixes that we are jamming out to at our desks. In the end, some happiness has come from this sad event. I will leave you with these parting words from MJ himself: “Don’t blame it on the sunshine, don’t blame it on the moonlight, don’t blame it on the good times, blame it on the boogie….”

But, on a lighter note, tonight is once again Barnsdall Fridays Weekly Wine Tasting with Silverlake Wine – my new favorite pastime. While LA is known to suffer from a lack of public space, Barnsdall Fridays attempts to make up for this negative. And if I were you, I would check it out. Barnsdall is one of LA’s best-kept secrets. Barnsdall Art Park is the site of Frank Lloyd Wright’s infamous Hollyhock House. Originally owned by Aline Barnsdall, the park rests at the top of Olive Hill, near the intersection of Hollywood and Vermont, and is now owned by the City of Los Angeles. Barnsdall is also home to the Junior Arts Center.

If you enjoy laying on soft grass, viewing the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory, drinking delicious wine, listening to soothing music, and surrounding yourself with others who enjoy the exact same things, this is the event for you. And who can pass up a juicy dog from Let’s Be Frank, followed by a architecturally-famed ice cream sandwich from the folks at the Coolhaus mobile truck.

See you there!
