Event pics for Arbor’s Venice Votes events coming soon!

Come on down to the Arbor Collective this Sunday between 3 p.m. & 7 p.m. and request your mail in ballot for the upcoming  Venice Neighborhood Council election while knocking back some ice cold Firestone Walker brews, grinding on sliders from Mercede’s grill, and laughing at stand up comedy! All provided courtesy of the Arbor Collective!  What a cool way to participate in the VNC political process. Big fist bump to Bob, Dakota, and the Arbor Team for organizing and hosting this!

Here is a message from Arbor:

Arbor is having a free Get-Out-The-Vote comedy event, to support the VNC election.  As you may know, voters have to request a mail in ballot this year, and many people do not know this.  As a result, we are working hard to get the word out, and help people request their ballots.
This is an open to all event.  All VNC candidates are welcome. 

Event to include:  

  • Meet your candidates.
  • Request a ballot, & have a few beers.


See great comedy by Lachlan Patterson (NBC), Kate Quigley (Date Fails) and Shapel Lacey (It’s Managed). Hosted by Venice Underground Comedy’s Bronston Jones & Matt Devlin.

Music by:  DJ Maxim Adams b2b Dwade
Food and drinks: 
    • Sliders sponsored by Mercedes
    • Beverages by Firestone Brewery

See you this Sunday at ARBOR Venice 102 Washington Blvd Venice, CA 90292!
