Fourth of July started out overcast and slightly cool in Hollywood, but by about 12:15pm the clouds burned off and the sun came shining through, just in time for the festivities to start at Amoeba Hollywood. We strategically hid "golden tickets" in plastic easter eggs
around the store, each filled with a prize such as a free Amoeba gift certificate
, free chair massage
by our go-to masseuse Terrence, free caricatures
from Rene and April, or a free Amoeba t-shirt
. Not to mention lots and lots of coupons for free ice cream
and free hot dogs
, courtesy of two food trucks visiting Amoeba today: Dogtown Dogs
and The Good Times Ice Cream Truck
Our own DJ Continental Song-gress
spun records in the afternoon, providing the star-spangled soundtrack for our busy shoppers taking advantage of the last day of our massive poster sale
and hunting for golden tickets.
Hollywood closes early tonight (at 7pm) but we'll be back open on Thursday, July 5 at 10:30am. Have a happy and safe holiday!
Note DJ Continental Song-gress's stylish, one of a kind hat hand-stitched by our very own Daniel!
