Join us for a special evening walking tour with the LA Conservancy of Downtown LA’s Modern Skyline! By day, the glass and steel towers of the business district exude corporate power. Yet by night, glowing windows, evocative lighting, and reflective skins transform these Modern monoliths into a beautiful and mysterious landscape.
This special walking tour takes an evening stroll among the architecture, public art, and plazas of downtown's Bunker Hill area. The tour ends at the Bona Vista Lounge at the top of the futuristic Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites, for no-host cocktails, dining, and spectacular nighttime views. Guests will enjoy discounts on select cocktails.
Interested in this tour but can’t make it out on the night we’re going? Check out all the great walking tours with the LA Conservancy here: https://www.laconservancy.org/walking-tours.
Our next community service event will be a Community Cleanup on Sunday, August 31st in Venice Beach. This event is hosted by Angel City Brewery, who will supply volunteer t-shirts, gloves, trash bags, trash pickers as well as some post-cleanup food and drinks. We will meet at noon and pick up trash in the neighborhood and/or beach for approximately 1.5 - 2 hours.
It’s summertime which means it’s time to enjoy some great music at the Hollywood Bowl! This year we will be attending The Simpsons Take the Bowl. The Simpsons is longest running American sitcom ever and widely considered to be one of the greatest TV shows of all time. (Toting 28 Primetime Emmys® to prove it!)
Join us for this Saturday Spectacular where the Hollywood Bowl orchestra will accompany some of your favorite Simpsons scenes on the big screen. The event will be filled with plenty of special guests, Conan O'Brien and Weird Al to name a few, and of course, a fireworks finale! Woo-Hoo!

Although engineers are highly skilled in applying technical know-how to solve complex problems and build magnificent projects, they often lack the soft skills needed to climb the corporate ladder.
“Engineer Your Own Success: 7 Key Elements to Creating an Extraordinary Engineering Career” is a seminar in which author Anthony Fasano, P.E., provides the missing link between technical and social intelligence by educating engineers on how to develop interpersonal communicative skills, build an effective network, work through challenges, and set clear career goals.
