Metro is becoming a part of Los Angeles in more ways than one. Not only more Angelenos are using Metro to commute but we’re discovering the role Metro plays in supporting culture in L.A.
Last Sunday, Metro extended its support to Los Angeles museums and its visitors by offering discounted fares. Now, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Metro steps up its game.
On Sunday, February 12th – on the weekend preceding Valentine’s Day – Metro invites you to attend a free Valentine’s Day Art Tour on the Gold Line. The tour will begin at the Gold Line Arcadia Station at 2 p.m. and end at Azusa Downtown Station at 4:30 p.m.
The tour will include station art and even pop-up theatre featuring Shakespearian love stories. The performances will be staged by the Independent Shakespeare Co.
On Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, February 14th) you are invited to…. dance the dance of love: tango! Take a spin in the Union Station’s Historic Ticketing Hall! Don’t know how to tango? No problem! You’ll have the opportunity to take a free tango lesson! There’ll be dancing and live music by the orchestra Tangótico! And when you’re ready to watch professionals dance the tango Carlos Barrionuevo and Mayte Valdes will show you how it’s really done! Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Dancing from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Another great news: FREE TAP cards will be available for attendees at the start of the tour. Parking is available at Arcadia Station.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day With Metro? Sounds like fun and on the budget to boot! Who knew that art, Shakespeare, tango and Valentine’s Day can come in one sentence with Metro? We didn’t, but hey, kudos to Metro! Valentine’s Day With Metro is a great way to entertain the community AND expand Metro’s fan base.
