    West Hollywood to Offer Snow, Flu shots, Drag Story Hour, and More this Saturday

    The City of West Hollywood calendar is chock-full of events this coming Saturday, December 15, 2023. From a winter wonderland full of snow, free flu and COVID vaccine shots, Drag Story Hour, and more, there’s plenty to do and most of it is within walking distance.

    It all begins at the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station’s Parking Lot, at 780 N San Vicente Blvd. From 10am – 12pm, the City of West Hollywood will be hosting two vaccination clinics in collaboration with the Office of LA County 3rd District, Supervisor Lindsey P. Horvath and the LA County Department of Public Health. Residents and visitors alike will be able to access the modified COVID-19 vaccine and the seasonal flu for free. Individuals receiving the COVID-19 booster are encouraged to first consult with their physicians and to bring with them their vaccination record card.

    Then we mosey on to West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd, where from 11am – 11:30am, the city will host Drag Story Hour, a series of story time readings by drag performers for children of all ages presented by the City of West Hollywood in partnership with the West Hollywood Library. For more information visit https://www.weho.org/community/arts-and-culture/literary-arts/drag-queen-story-hour

    Then, from 1pm – 4pm, it’s a Winter Wonderland at the West Hollywood Park & Dog Park at 647 N. San Vicente Blvd. Bundle up and watch in wonder as West Hollywood Park transforms into an arctic village of holiday fun and merriment. A family-friendly frost fest with entertainment, games, music, hot chocolate, snacks, and good cheer awaits you.

    A second vaccination clinic will take place in the Eastside, from 1:30pm to 4pm, at Plummer Park’s Fiesta Hall, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. Residents and visitors alike will be able to access the modified COVID-19 vaccine and the seasonal flu for free. Individuals receiving the COVID-19 booster are encouraged to first consult with their physicians and to bring with them their vaccination record card.

    And finally, we’re back to the Westside City Poet Laureate Writing and Reading Workshop: Holiday Poetry Hotline (2 Part Series), from 2pm – 4pm, at the West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. It’s free, but a RSVP required: https://www.weho.org/community/arts-and-culture/literary-arts/city-poet

    Join West Hollywood City Poet Laureate Jen Cheng and the West Hollywood Library for a workshop of poetry writing and reading in preparation for the West Hollywood Holiday Poetry Hotline, inspired by The Poetry Pharmacy. Holiday stress doesn’t need to get us down when we have poetry to connect to our shared humanity. Members of the public will be able to dial in to the Holiday Poetry Hotline and receive a “poem prescription” from you. For those who want to share their voice on the Holiday Poetry Hotline on December 23, we will practice and record your voice reading poems curated by Jen Cheng in the last hour of the workshop. If scheduling is a challenge, you’re welcome to do only Part 1 of this workshop. No experience needed. Come with curiosity.

    Holiday Poetry Hotline Participant Workshop
    Saturday, December 23, 2023, 2pm-5pm
    West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd.
    Free, RSVP required; https://www.weho.org/community/arts-and-culture/literary-arts/city-poet
    Participants in Part 2 of this project are required to attend the Part 1 training aspect of this workshop on December 16.
    Under the guidance of West Hollywood City Poet Laureate Jen Cheng, workshop participants will be answering phone calls live to deliver “poem prescriptions” for callers. We practice the art of listening and choose a poem from our dispensary of curated poems. Several Pride Poets will be on hand to write custom typewriter poems.

    The West Hollywood Holiday Poetry Hotline is designed and led by West Hollywood City Poet Laureate Jen Cheng to offer poetry and compassion during the winter holiday season. Dial in to the Live Hotline at 310-853-3952 on December 23 from 2pm-5pm to receive a “poem prescription” from a live reader or request a custom poem.

    Enough already with pumping us up with all these damn shots! You’d think we’re cattle or something awaiting slaughter.
