Coming Attractions: International Cultural Day; 'Awesome' Book Reading; Doll Tea Party

A Taiko drum performance at Third Street Elementary School's 2009 Culture Day.

One of the amazing things about Los Angeles is its diversity. There are so many different cultures represented in this city, and it's great when local organizations recognize it.

In this case, it's Third Street Elementary School in Hancock Park, which will be celebrating the diversity within its classrooms with International Cultural Day on Saturday, Nov. 6.

The event, which also serves as a fundraiser for the L.A. Unified public school, will offer food from more than 30 countries, including Thailand, Korea, France, Mexico and Switzerland. There will also be live world music and performances from professional artists as well as Third Street students.

A special appearance by Avan Jogia, who plays Beck on Nickelodeon's "Victorious," will also join the party.

It's a great way to see cultural diversity up close and support a local public school in the process.

Now this is something CC would go crazy for! Pottery Barn Kids is hosting a Doll Tea Party on Saturday, Nov. 6 (2 p.m.-3 p.m. & 3 p.m.-4 p.m.) at participating stores.

Not only can little ones dress up for the occasion, but they can also bring a favorite doll or teddy bear to accompany them on this special outing.

In addition to complimentary refreshments, this tea party (recommended for children ages 4 and up) will also feature crafts and stories. But because space is limited, you need to RSVP to your local store.

Cheers!

Thanks for the info. Dealing with addiction can be hard and you should have an intervention for people you love when they need the extra help.
