What to Know
Saturday, Feb. 16
Woman's Club of Hollywood
Let's talk about a particular pastry and a particular holiday that falls around the middle of the second month.
It isn't the scone we're speaking of, and we're not cooing over cannoli, but we are talking pie.
It's a dessert that sometimes speaks of summer days, and windowsills to cool upon, but it actually has some Valentine's cred, too.
And one of the messiest and merriest local spotlights on the sweet occurs at the annual Valentine's Day Speakeasy Party & Pie Fight, a vintage-vibe'd event helmed by The Roaring 20s Street Jam.
It's not on Valentine's Day proper in 2019, but two days later, on Saturday, Feb. 16.
A pre-sale ticket is $35, you'll want to don your flapper-esque best, but you'll also want to keep in mind that you'll get doused in a lot of whipped cream, should you participate in the old-style placing of pies upon your friends' faces.
Gently placing, we hope. This is a proper Valentine's festivity, after all.
The place is the Woman's Club of Hollywood, and other hot-hot happenings will be afoot, like tuning up your hoofers at a dance lesson and listening to live, wayback tunes from Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang.
