Here's a handful of things to keep in mind for today.
- Learn to be a sexy speaker in 60 seconds or less as part of a seminar by the Jewish Business Networking Organization’s first Westside chapter at Kehillat Ma’arav Synagogue, 1715 21st St., Santa Monica.
- The Santa Monica Public Library celebrates the seventh annual Green Prize for Sustainable Literature at the special event An Evening with Frances Moore Lappé: Celebrating Sustainable Literature and Food on Thursday, September 12, at 6:30 pm, in the MLK Jr. Auditorium at the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
- Check Santa Monica Patch's live traffic map before heading out to work or to run errands this week.
- Did you know there are a ton of social groups open to everyone on MeetUp.com? You can search by interest or location and a quick gander at the Santa Monica area shows meet ups for techies, hikers, singles, beach volleyball players, gamers and even honey lovers. Is there a group out there for you?
- To get alerts on breaking news as it happens in town this week (and after), make sure you are signed up to get our emails. Click on the 'get the daily newsletter' at the top, right corner of this page. (If you see something that says, "hi, username," then you're already registered.
