Join us for the return of Amoeba's prodigal son, Brently Heilbron, the original host of our charity auctions! Brently will be hosting a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood to benefit Inner-City Arts Saturday, August 6th at 4pm. We've uncovered a treasure trove of crazy collectibles and promo items for Brently to auction off, not to mention concert tickets to see Kraftwerk at the Hollywood Bowl and Culture Club at the Hollywood Bowl; gift certificates from our amazing neighbors; and lots more goodies you never knew you had to have.

Our charity auctions began back in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana. What started as an effort to help the Gulf Coast relief efforts has turned into an 11 year commitment to supporting organizations ranging from Doctors Without Borders to the Los Angeles LGBT Center and an incredible $450,000+ being raised through our charity auctions

At every auction Amoeba matches all winning bids up to $1,000, doubling the amount of money going to charity. We do this with the help of our partners and friends who donate their goods for the auction and the generosity of our customers who come down to the auctions and open up their wallets and their hearts.

Pokemon Go at Amoeba Hollywood

Everywhere you turn lately, people are talking about or playing Pokémon Go. It's a new augmented reality game you play on your cell phone that combines the real world with the virtual Pokémon world. Although it just launched last week, it's already more popular than Tinder.

After tons of trainers (as the users are called) were seen playing it on their phones while walking around Amoeba Hollywood, we discovered we're actually a gym in the game! A gym is where you go to battle other teams to either claim the gym as your own or defend it against attacking trainers. Plus, you get experience points by battling, which gets you more levels and more powerful Pokémon. However, to battle at a gym you need to get to Level 5 in the game. Confused? Read more about how the game works.

We're getting Pokémon Go fever like everyone else, so we're giving trainers a discount while you're playing at Amoeba Hollywood! Just take a screenshot of a Pokémon you caught inside Amoeba Hollywood and show it to the folks at the information counter on the main floor. We'll give you a $3 off coupon for your purchase of $5 or more. (Limit 1 per person per day. Can't be combined with other offers or discounts. Not valid on Amoeba.com. Offer ends July 19.)

Come catch 'em all!
