Watson Adventures’ Secrets of the Huntington Library Scavenger Hunt

Huntington Library

1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, 91108

11:00am to 1:00pm

Put the Hunt in the Huntington Library on a unique scavenger hunt for adults!
No, don’t call it a library. Call it an eye-popping mansion filled with wonders! Call it a treasure house of amazing art! Call it a botanical garden of spectacular specimens, or a conservatory of exotic micro-climates, with a rainforest and a “Cloud Forest”!
Railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington spared no expense in creating his personal Eden, and we’ve created a hunt that reveals all of its quirks and secrets, from art masterpieces (hello, Blue Boy and Pinkie!) to nature’s marvels (no thanks, orchid that mimics a fly’s hairy abdomen!).
If you haven’t been to the Huntington Library near Pasadena, then it’s time you treat yourself to an incredible adventure. Price includes venue admission. Advance purchase is required via our website. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.

On August 2, Venice Arts Gallery will host the Opening Reception for its latest exhibition, “Ecotone: Boundaries, Tensions, Integrations.” The exhibition features seventeen artists, each exploring and documenting in-between or transitional spaces through photography or video. These works, investigating interactions caused by human migration or displacement, urban encroachments onto nature, or environmental strain, question how we relate to borders and places of transience, and what exists in these ambiguous spaces.

6:00pm to 9:00pm

The Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc. (AADAP) will be celebrating 42 years of serving the community at the 21st Annual Benefit Concert- Showtime 2014. Our event will be held on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 in Little Tokyo, Downtown Los Angeles and promises to be an exciting event, providing over 300 attendees with exclusive live performance, stories of success, and a silent auction and opportunity drawing. Showtime is an annual event that seeks to raise funds for program services as well as to recognize key contributors to AADAP in the field of prevention and treatment. It’s also a time for supporters to gather with Board and Staff to celebrate the accomplishments of the year and see the real-life impact that their contributions are having on clients and program participants.

With the support of generous sponsors AADAP has been giving men, women and children access to affordable and quality services for over 42 years. With a staff of 120 and an annual budget of approximately $10 million, AADAP manages 13 distinct programs at 10 sites and four client residents. Significant among its accomplishments, AADAP:
• Has treated more than 50,000 youths and adults;
• Has served 300,000-400,000 people from diverse communities countywide;
• Established a strong reputation and long-standing relationships in South Los Angeles

Showtime has historically featured many up-and-coming acts from the Asian Pacific Islander community, giving a stage for young artists to gain wider recognition. Our past shows have included Quest Crew, Ken Jeong, Margaret Cho, Hiroshima, Daniel Ho, and many more talented and exciting performers. This year will feature rising stars JAZMIN Sisters bringing music that fuses traditional R&B and Hip-Hop. The event will also feature singer/songwriter/actress Meg Delacy, star of AwesomenessTV’s new show “Side Effects”, and stand up comedians Kermet Apio and Cary Tobaben.
