Where did this LosAngelesBeautiful phrase come from?, you may ask.
It grew out of Bruce’s Buddies, my social experiment, which connected like-minded Angelenos together as a way to make our city more livable.
In the past 4 years, you have all shown me that Los Angeles, as both a physical environment and a state-of-mind, beautifully encapsulates all the qualities that, I believe, make this city amazing.
For me, there are 3 qualities, or ‘ecologies’, that form the basis for LosAngelesBeautiful: 1) History - an imperfect city to be proud of and improve on; 2) Environment - the natural & man-made surrounding conducive to habitation; and 3) Community - a resilient group of like-minded adventurers who fight for and celebrate a city which was said to be unlivable (HA!).
You are invited to join me in celebrating this city - and my 30th Birthday - with a 3-part, all-day, roaming social. All are welcomed, for all or part of the day; pick and choose!
