Heritage Square Museum is a living history museum that explores the settlement and development of Southern California during its first 100 years of statehood. The eight historic structures located at the museum, constructed during the Victorian Era, were saved from demolition and serve as a perfect background to educate the public about the everyday lives of Southern Californians from the close of the 19th Century into the early decades of the 20th Century.

It’s almost that time of year again – when the frost is on the vine, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and the silver bells are ringing. Ok, who are we fooling? There is no frost in LA, we all live in apartments, and our smart phone ringtones are the only things ringing, BUT each December we DO have the absolute-best-time-you-can-have-on-concrete-under-palm-trees… The 2013 SANTA Monica Pub Crawl!

Last year, over 5,000 people crawled their hearts out to 25 bars, raising over $20,000 dollars for the Westside Food Bank! This year, they are working to make this the biggest and best SANTA Monica Pub Crawl ever with fun prizes and contests, all while helping the less fortunate put food on the table this Holiday Season. So, dust off those antlers, shine up those menorahs, and get ready for the 5th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl!
