“Sunset at the Oasis”, a series of music and culture, will hold regular Saturday night events through summer 2014 at The Frog Spot, a pop-up café and free weekend visitor center operated by Friends of the Los Angeles River.
Tucked behind a sculptor’s studio on the edge of the Glendale Narrows portion of the river, the Frog Spot is landscaped in bright-white garden stones, with seating areas, shade sails, a concession stand and information kiosk operating from a vintage trailer, and a convertible stage area. The entire patio overlooks the lush green-bottomed river, affording a view of bicyclists and herons alike.
The “Sunset at the Oasis” series will run every Saturday night through October 4th. The Frog Spot is also open as a free public visitor center to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, offering free bathrooms, cold filtered water, wifi, snacks and other amenities.
The Frog Spot is a pilot program funded by Miss Me Jeans and REI. Further information can be found at www.thefrogspot.org and on Twitter @TheFrogSpot.
