How Obscure

Obscura Day 2011

A day around the world to find or do something obscure to do. LA has 4 different activities. So explore and interact with LA's mysteries.

Esoteric LA: John Fante's Dreams from Bunker Hill

Meet at Clifton's Cafeteria, Broadway & 7th Street
Los Angeles, CA, US                                 

 Obscure Errata Salon at Betalevel

Located in a basement down two back alleys in the heart of Chinatown, Betalevel will open its doors for a day of readings and an odd tour of downtown Los Angeles - part performance space, part music venue, part speakeasy.
Details/Special Instructions:
  • 8pm-11pm.
  • Open to the public but probably not suitable for children.
  • Betalevel is located behind the Full House Restaurant in Chinatown

Paranoia Bike Ride Through Los Angeles

  • 3pm-6pm.

  • Bring your own bike and be prepared for a two-hour long, moderate intensity bike ride.

  • The Paranoid Bike Ride will convene at Chungking Plaza on Hill Street (between College and Bernard)

  • All proceeds from Obscura Day ticket sales for this event will go to support the Betalevel or a charity of their choice

  • Dinner and Magic at the Magic Castle

    The dinner at the Magic Castle seems the most intriguing

    While the lobby of the castle has no visible doors to the interior, Obscura Day visitors will be given the secret which allows them access to the inside and explore the hidden passageways and magic rooms of the castle.

    The evening will include:
    • Three course dinner for each guest, consisting of a Salad, Main Course, Dessert and Coffee.
    • Numerous Magic shows, with eleven different acts performing throughout the night, and magicians performing in the bar and lounge all evening long.
    • A chance to tour the castle and meet the resident ghost, alongside Castle Member Ryan Majestic.
    • Not to mention the chance to mingle with dozens of magicians as the Castle's numerous bars.
