It opens 4-7pm Friday, Dec. 13. Come mingle with the artists over art and drinks. 624-7491.
  • The Pink Flamingo Theater is keeping the comedy flame alight during the long cold nights of the holiday season with their Holiday Comedy Show.

  • Through Dec. 23 the MHAA: Salvador Dali is also accepting donations of non-perishable food for the Food Bank for Monterey County in exchange for reduced admission. What is MHAA: Salvador Dali, you might ask? It’s the art venue formerly known as Dali Expo. Before that, Dali17. Before that, Museum of Monterey. Before that, Monterey Maritime and History Museum. That last one is from way back, but the MHAA (Monterey History and Art Association) used to run it then. 372-2608.
