This time around, she takes on The Theatre at Ace Hotel for a night of conversation and discussion of anything and everything and a lot of what grinds Lebowitz’s gears. [More info]

Puppy Bowl Pup Rally February 4, Fox Hills

However, L.A. is following in the capital’s footsteps for one day, offering free entry to several museums across the city. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, the Japanese American National Museum, and Descanso Gardens will all have no-cost entry. [More info]
