Join us on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 3 p.m. for a docent-lead, one-hour tour of “Route 66: The Road and the Romance” at the Autry Museum in Griffith Park.
The exhibit, which includes 250 extraordinary artifacts, traces the impact of this iconic highway on modern culture. America was drawn to it, sang about it and prospered along its meandering from Chicago to Los Angeles.
While we’re there, we’ll also check out the Autry’s main purpose, a museum of the West’s history in reality and in film — and browse the best museum gift shop in Los Angeles — after enjoying an early dinner together at the newly renovated Autry cafe, Crossroads West.
Admission is $8. Please check in at the Visitor Services desk at 2:45 p.m. and tell them you are with the SingularCity group. They will take your payment and give you admission stickers. This event is open to everyone, so please feel free to bring your friends — but do be sure to RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Autry” in the subject line.
Parking is free, but allow plenty of time to locate your space so you’ll be ready to start the tour promptly at 3 p.m.
