The Lincoln in Venice is a modern yet vintage craft cocktail bar that just celebrated their one-year anniversary. The Lincoln’s
clapboard street frontage feels inspired by a faded postcard plucked from a dusty swap meet—and recalls the area’s industrial
heritage in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s when it was home to numerous auto repair and custom shops. The space provides and
rewards community and the mixing of different audiences from workaday drinking buddies to elegant post-dinner dates.
The Lincoln has secured significant accolades since opening, including being named
– one of Los Angeles Magazine’s “…best DogFriendly Bars in Los Angeles;”
– CBS Los Angeles “Best Summer Cocktails in LA;”
– one of LA Eater’s “18 Hottest Cocktail Bars in Los Angeles Summer 2016,” listed #1. #thelincolnla.




Pacific Pups Rescue
Pacific Pups Rescue’s purpose and mission statement is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home surrendered and homeless dogs from kill shelters, the streets, and community members in need. We rescue and carefully re-home dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes. They live in foster homes, where they are loved and continue to learn and grow while we find them forever homes.

Dogs of Service
Dogs of Service is a non-profit 501c3 organization committed to providing military men and women with service dogs that were rescued from the shelter, free of charge while simultaneously building a community of healing. As a No-Kill Coalition partner, they strive to create a supportive and nurturing community for veterans and their dogs as an effective pathway for healing and integration back into civilian life.

NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles)
NKLA is an initiative of Best Friends Animal Society, bringing together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of homeless pets in L.A. city shelters. Our plan is straightforward: Provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so that fewer animals go into shelters and increase adoptions so that more animals are placed into new homes. In 2015, the NKLA Coalition helped find homes for about 27,100 dogs and cats, and Best Friends provided support for about 14,700 spay/neuter surgeries for L.A. pets.

Sunny Bak
Sunny Bak is a Venice- based photographer who began shooting at the ripe age of twelve. Sunny pursued her passion for
photography by studying at New York’s prestigious The School of Visual Arts The Nikon House, as well as at The New School
with Philippe Halsman. Upon completing her studies she operated studios in both New York and Los Angeles from 1986 to
1991. Since 1992 she has made Venice Beach her home where she is a board member of the Venice Art Crawl.

Don’t miss this great event. Even if you don’t have a dog, it’s worth going. Bring friends that do have dogs!!
