LA Life: Croquet, Greystone & Holiday Lights

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Croquet anyone?  Not the usual thing you hear in November tomatoes but after all this is LA so Croquet, Champagne and Oysters is not unusual at Barnsdall Park.  Ladies you could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that Greystone Mansion is opening its doors for a few days to the public.  That’s you and me! I’m now going to mention the …gulp…Holidays. Egads I may panic, but the LA Conservancy has got a new tour this year.

Holy Moly! The historic Greystone Mansion will open its doors to the public! I kid you not tomatoes. For the next 3 weekends you can feast your eyes upon the beautiful interior architecture of the 46,000 square foot iconic Greystone Mansion. 25 highly acclaimed interior designers will bring the mansion to life for the Maison de Luxe Designer Show House Event presented by Luxe Interiors + Design, in conjunction with the City of Beverly Hills and the Friends of Greystone. This rare opportunity sounds like a wonderful outing with someone special or a group of tomatoes. Ooh La La!

Plus there will be on site dining options as well.  I wouldn’t hesitate to get your tickets now ladies for your chance to see the inside of The Greystone Mansion.

Croquets the game and Barnsdall is the name.  It’s time again for the Barnsdall Art Park’s “Croquet, Champagne + Oysters” fall fundraiser this Sunday, November 8.  Believe it or not, you can swing into the holidays with a game of croquet (only in LA) or just relax with Champagne and enjoy some old fashioned fun to raise money for this wonderful city park and its programs.  I dare ya to dress in white and don a hat tomatoes.

I know I know it seems a little crazy to be rushing you in to the “holidays” but I know this brand new super cool tour from the LA Conservancy will sell out fast tomatoes. This year the “Modern By Moonlight” walking tour becomes the “Modern by Holiday Light” tour exploring the skyscrapers and plazas of Bunker Hill all decked out, festive and twinkling for the holidays. December 12th is already sold out so I’d get your holiday groove on quickly.  Can’t believe I’m saying the “H” word.
