Some Helpful Info!
Parking is pretty easy. We have parking. Park in the lot with the Yellow Coffee Shop sign. We will have balloons and other markers to let you know you are here.
Gifts! I am fortunate and blessed to have everything I could ever want or need. (except more guitars). If you have something already I will be honored and love it. However, Instead of gifts, I am asking for donations to 2 of my favorite charities.
Charity One - Sweet Relief
Founded by Singer-Songwriter Victoria Williams, Sweet Relief Mental Health Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing mental health issues, disability, or age-related problems.
Donate whatever you can afford here.
Charity Two - Santé D’Or Foundation
Santé D’Or Foundation
is a no-kill animal adoption center serving the Los Angeles community, predominantly staffed by volunteers. This is where we adopted our dog Luka! Though primarily a Cat rescue they occasionally have dogs that need homes. There he was, poor Luka surrounded by all these cats. We had to get him out of there! (Kidding, we love cats, and I know of 3 kittens that are adorable beyond belief and need homes.)
Donate whatever you can to
In addition to the studio, we will be using the dining area of the restaurant next to us. Their kitchen will be closed. We will be bringing in hot food, apps, and drinks. It gives us extra space and an extra bathroom. We will also have food and drinks in Room B at the studio but that setup will lean vegetarian.
We have a box of earplugs if you need them. Help Yourself.
Make yourself at home, introduce yourself to total strangers, and don't be shy about joining any games or joining in the jam sessions.
We are having food delivered from a variety of sources, throughout the party. Wraps, Subs, Pizzas, Tamales, Burritos, Chicken, and more. If you would like to bring a dish or dessert ala potluck style you are more than welcome to but there is no obligation.
We have Giant Jenga, Crimes against Humanity, Trivia, and other get-acquainted-with-people games.
We also invite you to create your personal “Intent” bracelet. Stamping a word you choose onto a silver metal washer bracelet. The word I chose today is “Now”. reminding me to stay present and in the moment.
This is a BYOB party. We will have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages but if you want to bring some beer or other libations you are welcome to. We just ask that you drink responsibly.
If you have any questions feel free to call us at 818-259-4206.
