History Happy Hour with Reino Niemela Jr. WNP Event

Aug 17, 2022 6:00pm-8:00pm (Wednesday) at The Museum at The Cliff 1090 Point Lobos Ave

History Happy Hours hosted by Western Neighborhoods Project (WNP) are now in-person!

Join Nicole Meldahl and (sometimes) Chelsea Sellin as they enjoy adult beverages while chatting with local historians, artists, longtime west side residents and other surprise guests on Wednesday evenings at The Museum at The Cliff.

On Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at 6:00pm, we invite you to the former Cliff House Restaurant at 1090 Point Lobos Avenue for complimentary refreshments and a casual discussion with Reino Niemala Jr.. His father, Rey Niemala Sr., was an artist and designer who began working for the Whitney Family in the 1930s and was responsible for all the hand-painted signage at Playland at the Beach. "Naiad Cove" is the first expansive exhibition of his work thanks to Reino's generoisty. Guests will hear Reino talk about his dad, his memories of Playland, and more!

Doors open at 6:00pm for check-in and the main program will begin at 6:30pm, running for approximately one hour. Afterwards, guests are free to explore our newest exhibition, "Naiad Cove," or simply hang out, mingle, and enjoy the view.

This program is free for WNP Members and $30 each non-members. If you aren't part of the WNP family already, you can fix this problem by joining WNP for the low low price of $50 a year.
