A STRAW POLL IN THE LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL RACE WILL BE PART OF THE EVENT
The Alano Club launches its fourth annual Family Fun Day this Saturday which will be packed with bands, food and games and in an unusual twist -- a straw poll will be taken of the 11 candidates running for Janice Hahn’s former Los Angeles Council seat.
From 10 a.m. until midnight, the club will host nine separate bands, an array of children’s games and loads of food. Day entry is free and will start off with bands, such as the local group, Last Day Off at noon, One Ten South at 3 p.m. and Choyce at 4 p.m. The Alano Club serves hundreds of residents in recovery from alcohol and drug abuse.
During the event and possibly even more enticing for some adults: a straw poll of the current candidates running for former Los Angeles Councilwoman Janice Hahn’s seat will be conducted from noon to 5 p.m.
The non-binding poll will add some additional spice to the event, said Bob Ahl, the club’s general manager.
“We are civic minded and we feel this is a civic thing to do,” Ahl said.
The evening events, which will cost $10 per entry, will begin at 7 p.m. with Belly Love and at 8 p.m. with Electra, a Greek musician who has received broad accolades for her rock music and writing who typically charges $2,000 a night for her events. She’s donating her time, Ahl said, for Alano’s cause.
Acidic will perform at 9:30. That group, Ahl said, “of four young talented musicians,” recently signed a record deal.
The non-binding straw poll will be reported later in a Random Lengths story.
