Your Civic Minded Friday Night Party Option: CelebrateLA

There will be figureheads and free nachos—and you’re personally invited

Antonio Villaraigosa is packing up his office—and he’s not leaving quietly. In case you’ve missed it, the outgoing mayor is throwing a big (read: expensive) annual multicultural block party that extends from the steps of City Hall to Grand Park tomorrow evening. Everyone is welcome from 5 – 10 p.m. at the annual event, and more than a few VIPs have already RSVPed: President Bill Clinton, Ryan Seacrest, Wanda Sykes, Placido Domingo, and players from the Galaxy and the Kings will join local artists, performers, and chefs on hand for workshops and demonstrations. Party bonus: A fleet of L.A.’s most enticing food trucks will line the streets, and Hungry Hog is giving away free nachos.
