Last Thursday, I went to a great opening event for the current Theo Ehret: The Grand Olympic exhibit at 722Figueroa. Ehret was the house photographer at the Olympic Auditorium from 1965-1985, and built an amazing portfolio of compelling sports photography. The exhibit runs through the end of this month, from 2pm-5pm by appointment only. Check some of Ehret’s great work from the show here, courtesy of the guys at 722. And there’s a great video too.

Thanksgiving is about celebrating family by sharing a meal (I think) and what better meal to share than pizza? Great new stickers from Benjamin Escobar.
