friday february 14 | pajama jam

For those of us here in LA, it’s thus far been a solemn and heartbreaking start to 2020 with the sudden losses of people who have meant so much to our city and to our individual circles of friends and family. Fortunately, we’re at the start of a new month, and with it, the hope of abundance and good tidings that may help us put our hearts back together.

Well, it turns out that our next PIÑA event falls on Friday February 14th (Valentine’s Day!) and we’re determined to make it fun and unique. Sooo, we’re inviting you to dress down…waaayyy down…and join us for the PIÑA PAJAMA JAM!! Yup. Come dance the night away in your favorite sleepwear to the sounds of La Junta resident deejays degruvme, Yukicito & Glenn Red and our special guest from world renowned online music program Expedition RadioBIG BAD BABY BUBBA!

NOTE: The emphasis is on sleep’wear’. You gotta have pj’s on (or regular clothes for those coming from V-Day dinner)…or something comparable (sorry to the freeballers who like to sleep in the buff!). And footwear…because every now and then a glass breaks.

See you on 2/14 with lots of love!
