“As a writer, I spend most of my time in my head, working with words, thinking about words, combining words into unexpected parcels. I’m also someone who always makes time to read. Sitting down with a novel is just a part of my regular routine. So when it comes time to step away from my work week, to carve out a day that is different, to undo, I try to get away from words and to get out of my head. My UNDO day is not a day of rest, but of a different kind of work. I try to do something physical, to fix something or make something or even, (though more rarely) to clean. I like to change the physical makeup of my world in some way, instead of the imaginary landscapes in my head. I like to end at least one day a week physically exhausted. Most people in the world don’t have the choice of recreational exhaustion, so as I undo I’m compelled to recognize the luxury it is for me to use manual labor as a method of unwinding, rather than surviving. I undo by doing.” (Charles London)
In 1984, we built archery ranges in Los Angeles for the Olympic Games. They still stand, and every Saturday at Rancho Park we non-Olympians (for the most part) can use them! See you at 11am, Robin Hood, as we take our free lesson.
You think you know bingo, but you don’t. And even if you do, you don’t know Le Bingo. Saturdays at Le Poisson Rouge with outrageous host Linda Simpson, Le Bingo is not your grandma’s 25-cent gambling habit. Happy hour drinks and wacky prizes make this an experience to have at least (and perhaps at most) once.
