“When you dip I dip we dip”

September 1, 2011

Get Freak Nasty and double dip at Abbot Kinney this month for the upcoming First Fridays and Abbot Kinney Festival (the festival that will still go on – sorry Sunset Junction fans).

Abbot Kinney has a lot to offer, if you don’t know already. Overpriced but fun boutique shops to browse, hipster Intelligentsia coffee, a night spa, bar that allows furry friends, a slew of restaurants with a range of cuisines, art galleries, “legal” pot, a tea house and a fun jazz and gay bar – sold separately.

First up is First Fridays. And surprise, it’s every first Friday of the month which is this Friday the 2nd. Stroll the streets, take in the art, grab food at a truck or hit up a restaurant and bar.  Lots of Venice people watching on this night. We’ve got your standard beach boy, stoner hippie, Westside hipster (on the endangered list), beach athlete, artists, art appreciators, industry types and those from the establishment.

For more info you can go here:

Then later this month on Sunday, September 25th is the

Abbot Kinney Festival

Abbot Kinney Blvd.
Venice
10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

A Westside festival, that is easy to get to, easy to meander along and easy to see the playing artists. What more does one want? It’s the hipster rival to the Sunset Junction that is actually happening. There are booths with great treats, art, jewelry, gifts and strategically spaced out stages for up close personal music treatment.  Mr. Edward Sharpe and his crew were able to grace us with their presence before. You can peek at the fun here: Edward Sharpe Abbot Kinney 

Get ready for September 25th and check out the artists listed to play http://abbotkinney.org/

As always, I recommend riding in on a bicycle or skateboard to ease your troubles.
