The do-gooders who run the Downtown Women’s Center have gotten well deserved new digs and they are having a parade to celebrate. On December 10th Mayor Villaraigosa, Councilwoman Jan Perry and many of the center’s Skid Row clients will Mardi Gras it red carpet style from the old joint (on Los Angeles Street) to their new swanked up historic building on San Pedro. There will also be dancers, musicians and an all-female Mariachi Band walking the 10 a.m. procession. You can tour the Neo Gothic Florence Casler and William Douglas Lee building during the festivities. More Information.
