If you could make someone’s dreams come true, would you? You can! Click on this link  or the image above and vote as many ways as possible. By voting, you will be helping to SEND ME AROUND THE WORLD!

As a travel host for, I’d get six months, six continents, all expenses paid, my choice of destinations, and $50,000 cash when I return.

Travel is my greatest passion, along with uncovering the secrets of cities, living outdoors (camping, backpacking, hiking, these are the things I live for), eating and drinking everything. And I mean everything.

I believe I would be very, very good at this job. Vote. Like crazy. As many times as possible. For the next two days.  And then, get outside:

The Vagina Monologues with the LA Derby Dolls

This is the kind of weird mash-up at which LA excels. Taking one iconic thing and squishing it together with another iconic thing. Though L.A.’s Derby Dolls are best known for their amazonian stature and kick-ass roller skills, tonight they present ‘The Vagina Monologues’ in a benefit for local charities. The Derby Dolls will perform alongside Emma Dumont, star of the ABC Family show “Bunheads” and Janice Kent, known best as Maryellen in “The New Leave It To Beaver.”

$14 general; $10 students

Doors open at 6:30pm

The Loft at Liz’s is above Liz’s Antique Hardware, an incredible collection of antique pieces (doorknobs, light switch plates, hooks) for the home.  In the loft, Liz curates wonderful exhibitions, and provides the nicest receptions I’ve ever been to, with catered eats and nice wine.  ONE SHOT : [SPACES] opens during Month of Photography LA (MOPLA) sponsored by The Lucie Foundation.  Inspired by the theme, curator Liz Gordon offers a look beyond the physicality of Spaces.
