greenbyte: Earth Hour 2009, 8 Days and Counting

Earth Hour 2009 is scheduled for Saturday, March 28th from 8.30pm to 9.30pm (PST).  People are asked to turn off their lights for one simple hour as their way of showing support for, well, the Earth.  This year, Los Angeles is expecting to participate big time.  Besides the main event, a concert at LA Live with Mayor Villaraigosa, LA landmarks such as the Griffith Observatory, the LAX pylons, Getty Center, STAPLES Center, and even (my gastrointestinal favorite) Pink's will be turning off their lights.  Local entertainment venues like Groundlings, Amoeba, and The Comedy Store will host "dark performances."  If you'd rather romance your date at the same time as voting for earth, several local restaurants will be offering dinner by candlelight.  Check out Open Table for a full list of Dine by Candlelight participants and make a reservation.  There are also rumored to be viewing parties in-the-planning as well.  Check Earth Hour's LA site for a full list of activities.

Gina Rene will be singing downtown at the LA Live Concert.

Watch on a jumbotron as large swaths of the city go dark.
Shepard Fairey's VOTE EARTH poster.  Come on.  Turn your lights out.  You don't want to be the one who votes "global warming."
