Barbrix opens soon, caters WriteGirl benefit
Two great programs that help at-risk youth find their voices and improve their schoolwork are hosting very cool benefits this month with delicious local food choices.
This Sunday, May 3, WriteGirl hosts Playwright Girl, a benefit performance and reception featuring food from Silver Lake's newest wine bar Barbrix, Mozza, CakeMonkey and Hocus Pocus wines. Actors including Angela Bassett, Melora Hardin, Annie Potts and Barbrix partner Adria Tennor will perform works by the girls who were mentored by WriteGirl. Tennor is planning a mid-May opening for Barbrix on Hyperion.
And don't forget about the Craft Beer Fest L.A. on May 9, which benefits 826LA and includes lots of craft beer, cheese, Scoops ice cream and vegan snacks. Tickets are just $36 and are still available.
