With the spectacular BOLD holiday kick-off performance of Robin Thicke on Rodeo Drive Thursday, Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse has barely started spreading the joy: Sunday evening at 5 p.m. in Beverly Canon Garden she joins Dr. Deepak Chopra for the Gift of Meditation in the park, and Monday, at 8:30 a.m., Walk with the Mayor she will host special guest gubernatorial candidate and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as she walks to the Good Shepherd Church and the Dina Collection, home of Yossi Dina and Reelz’ Beverly Hills Pawn, the pawnbroker to the rich and famous.
Monday, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa comes to Beverly Hills to take a Walk with OUR Mayor – Lili Bosse. He might learn a little about accessibility and staying close to the people he governs – lessons for sure! The former LA Mayor is one of our State candidates for Governor and it will be an awesome opportunity to meet and greet this venerable icon of LA politics.
The USC and UCLA football teams will meet at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Saturday with the Trojans seeking their second consecutive 10-victory season and the Bruins trying to become bowl eligible.
