Need something to do in the next two days...

With the crashing of cymbals, the power of over a hundred voices and the sonority of orchestral brass and strings, Gustavo Dudamel leads his first ever Carmina Burana in Los Angeles July 21 & 23! Orff’s epic work, based on medieval poems about life, love, morals and drinking, is a summer highlight you won’t want to miss.

If theres one art / design bookstore that'll fulfill my needs, it has to be Hennessey & Ingalls. Located at the heart of Santa Monica, this homey bookstore continues to impress artists with they're exclusive and eye-opening collections. The first time i stepped in, I felt like a kid in a candy store; i was overwhelmed with excitement and found myself running around picking up books. However, I also found myself spending a full 6 hours at the store. So, if you plan on visiting this amazing bookstore be sure to BRING A WATCH! seriously, 6 hours there felt like 30 minutes. So whether your looking to be inspired, or want to check out some books on architecture, illustration, graphic design, fine art, books, or anything remotely related to art, you'll find it here. Do i recommend it? Hell. Yes.

One of my favorite places to go in Santa Monica and one of the few vibrant architectural bookstores. It is easy to get lost in the various design sections, including regional speciality areas like California Architecture. The store is in a beautiful location just off the ocean and a couple of blocks from the promenade. Stout in San Francisco comes close to this store but has no where near the space of this store; Praire Avenue Architecture bookstore in Chicago is sadly no longer in business.
