Spend New Year's Day with a huge aquatic family – there are over 11,000 animals at the Aquarium waiting to gobble up their dinners. You can watch them feed and then you and your family can chow down yourself – no muss, no fuss, no cooking, no cleaning! So tuck into turkey and all the fixings, right up through the pumpkin pie

(JAN. 2) Local merchants on or near Abbot Kinney, the thoroughfare that runs diagonally through Venice, come together every month to feature the best artists, gifts, products and music in the area. Local charities benefit as art junkies, couples and families descend on the always funky beach community. And, of course, beverages are available.

The mission of First Fridays is to promote and support local artists and musicians by providing them with an outlet to showcase their work. Every first Friday night of the month, participating Bixby Knolls businesses will unite to promote local artists and musicians through extended operating hours. In doing so we hope to encourage a dialogue between businesses, artists and the community.
