Wilfair-Adjacent Tar Pits Hair Ball

Wilfair is sometimes called whimsical, but other real-world things around Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue here in Los Angeles way, way out-whimsical a certain hotel and motel.

For instance? The La Brea Tar Pits, which are indeed very real and one of the world's great fossil sites, are throwing a fancy dress party on Saturday, June 21 called the Hair Ball.

Are guests invited to show with their hair done up in huge and strange shapes that pay homage the Ice Age era of the tar pits? They are. It's a fundraiser for the Page Museum, which is where the fossils found around the tar pits are displayed.

I mean, really. C'mon! This photo is so Fair Finley, or what she might aspire to: A mastodon atop her head.

We'll dance together there on Saturday in spirit, friends. Now who is doing her hair in the style of a sabertooth cat?
