David Choe “Snowman Monkey BBQ” Book Signing | Giant Robot

LA based graffiti/graphic artist David Choe will be signing copies of his latest literary achievement “Snowman Monkey BBQ” at Giant Robot  – a space that helped the artist get his start. If you go, which you should, let me know what the hell a Snowman Monkey BBQ is – judging by David’s sense of humor there’s probably a good story behind it. (more info here)

Dia De Los Muertos | Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Come on down to the local cemetery to celebrate the 15th year the Hollywood Forever has been putting on the Dia De Los Muertos event. The Mexican tradition lives strong in Los Angeles and has an added air of meaning and “spook” being that it is held at the cemetery. From 12pm – 12 pm, guests will have the opportunity to walk through the grounds to see luminaries, alters and offerings, craft stations, traditional dance performances, and experience several other Dia De Los Muertos traditions.

Halloween Safari | Malibu Wines

For me, Halloween and wine is like peanut butter and chocolate, it just makes sense, and Malibu Wines is making dreams reality with their “Halloween” themed safari tour. Day tour and night tours (Friday – Saturday only) are offered where you’ll make you way through a “truly mysterious ranch”. Sounds like the stupidest, most fun thing anyone could do in LA on Halloween – I am soooo there. (more info and tickets here)
