May 28 picnic- Dont miss out

If youre in town on May 28th you HAVE to check out this event. It looks like its gonna be like the old school May 28 picnics that were great .They’re gonna shut down Hollywood blvd. from Vermont to Alexandria. This is like an Armenian Cinquo de Mayo block party. There should be lots of good food, great entertainment, hot girls, and well you really don’t need much more than that so get your ass over there. Its in Little Armenia, if you watched Sopranos and saw the Italian festival they had and thought “what the hell why cant we ever do shit like this or have this stuff in LA?” well this is it so stop complaining and get over there. Even the Mayor is gonna be there.

The entertainment will consist of
Element Band, Vokee, Sako, Ara Sahagian, Karnig Sarkissian, Nersik Ispirian, Paul Baghdadlian, Gor Mkhitarian, Ara Shahbazian, and many more. Various dance groups are also scheduled to perform traditional and contemporary interpretations of Armenian folk dances throughout the day.

That’s like a whose who of Armenian entertainment minus Nune and Tata. (See I’ll admit what it doesn’t have, but that’s the only thing that’s missing)

A variety of vendors, diverse entertainers, performers, writers, and organizations will be on hand from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, highlighting Armenian culture and raising awareness about Armenian history. Traditional Armenian food and artifacts will also be a part of the festivities, all in the tradition of celebrating Armenia's cultural wealth

I’d say see you there but I’ll be in Argentina so have a kebab sandwich for me.
