Going out on a limb to try something new, break away from the crowd, or start a movement takes a commitment by a committed individual. The silence of being out on that limb dissuades many from following through, but those that do - those that persevere when others quit - have created a more interesting, more important City. And though it's rare to find someone who changes everything all at once, it's sometimes more important to know those taking the individual steps to move us all forward. And knowing WHY they do what they do can be the most interesting story of all.
Los Angeles is full of people doing interesting things for interesting reasons, forging new paths in the city. Come hear from three of these unique Angelenos who have made the city better for the choices they've made.
Join other LA leaders and fans at this special, no-cost event on July 25th at Katsuya Glendale at the Americana. Happy Hour specials will be extended for the event, and parking will be validated for up to 3 hours.
