Sat November 20 at 9:30 AM, Pershing Square
Pershing Square, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Hundreds of Angelenos will hit the sidewalks this November for The Great Los Angeles Walk 2010 – the annual event that dispels the myth that “nobody walks in L.A.”
For the fifth annual event, the Great Los Angeles Walk will return to where it all began: Wilshire Blvd. (the site of the first Walk in 2006). Participants will meet at downtown’s Pershing Square at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 20, and proceed to walk the entire 15.6 mile length of Wilshire.

Along the way, as they hike down L.A.’s grand boulevard, walkers will encounter historic buildings like Bullocks Wilshire and the Wiltern Theatre; attractions such as MacArthur Park and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the remains of L.A. icons that fell to the wrecking ball, such as the Ambassador Hotel and Perino’s.

Oh man, this sounds AWESOME, but GF and I have been trying to set up a queer girl, vegan couples date for weeks and we finally settled on that day and that time.

Take lots of pics! And we'll see the the next day, yes?

Ooh, my sister and I are totally planning on doing the first half of this -- up to LACMA, at least, where there will be food trucks and such. I really hope it doesn't rain, though, which is the current forecast for Saturday.

I did all of last year's walk, down Adams/Washington, and it was a blast! There are so many cool sights that most Angelenos see only as a fast-moving blur from their cars.
