Eastside Weekend: Youth Photography show in Boyle Heights; terrariums at Pop-Hop; Santa Claus in Highland Park


Terrariums tend to be capricious. It’s a beautiful addition to one’s home, but there are so many elements involved within such a small, contained space. Get to know your green thumb with this workshop at Pop-Hop Books & Print. Register online before showing up with your own plant. Actually $35 gets you two-hours and materials are provided! Sunday, December 14.

Your face has so many muscles and none of them do anything for you. Put them to work with the Whatever comedy show and show them who’s boss. This time around comedians Brendon Small, Whitmer Thomas, Donny Divanian, and a few others join hosts Eric Dadourian and Allen Strickland Williams at the Center for Arts, Eagle Rock. Friday, December 12.
Santa Claus Flyer
Most likely Highland Park is sick of men in beards, but this time around it’s Santa Claus! Bring your children to meet jolly ol’ Saint Nick at Awesome Playground in Highland Park, write him letters and get their photo taken with the elusive creature known as Santa Claus. $20 pre-register, $25 at the door. Friday, December 12.

In numbers consumers can change the world. Think what a cash mob can do for Eagle Rock? The Shop, Ride, NELA event will journey through Highland Park and Eagle Rock, making stops at LADOT’s two local business-sponsored bicycle corrals where riders can shop, dine and patron their favorite businesses with other like-minded bicycle/consumerist folk. Riders of all ages are encouraged to join and can meet at the Highland Park Goldline Station at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, December 13.

View the neighborhood through the eyes of budding photographers with the Las Fotos Project. Sixty-five girls have participated in the fall semester with Las Fotos Project, and are now displaying their work in this group show, where they will be on hand to talk shop and explain their experience in photography.

Girl Tears offer bite-sized punk songs that can accompany your slow-mo crash against the couch cushions after a long work day. The band plays Permanent Records, Saturday, December 13.
