The City Prolific: Weekend Events July 13 – 14

The City Prolific: Weekend Events July 13 – 14

Last weekend was one of beaches, pools, bicycles, bikinis, and barbecues. Biked up the coast from Manhattan Beach to Venice, swam in the ocean, swam in a rooftop pool, and barbecued in our little backyard.  This weekend will likely be a little more urban (and clothed).
