Thursday, May 25: "Bizarre San Fernando Valley, Oddities, Folklore and More."

Join us on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. as Greg Gonzalez and Daniel Zafran of L.A. Meekly present "Bizarre San Fernando Valley, Oddities, Folklore and More." L.A Meekly is a free monthly podcast that explores Los Angeles' lesser known history and legends. Greg and Daniel are Los Angeles natives who visit local museums, landmarks and historic sites throughout Los Angeles County. They have covered a wide range of topics including the history of corruption in the cities of Bell and Vernon, the history of oranges in Los Angeles, the Prohibition Era, and the St. Francis Dam, to name a few. L.A. Meekly was named one of the 11 podcasts about L.A. that you should listen to by Los Angeles Magazine this January. This event is free and open to the public, and will be at the Andrés Pico Adobe, 10940 Sepulveda Blvd, Mission Hills. There will be a free door prize drawing and light refreshments. Parking is free. Donations are encouraged and greatly appreciated.
