The NEW Santa Monica Place opens at 10 am on Friday. It looks pretty hip and cool. It's always been a gathering place, since long before Third Street was brought back to life. It's going to be great to have this neighborhood hot spot reopened after several years of construction and hope it will bring a boost to the local economy.
Be sure to stop by and check it out the next time you're in the neighborhood. Santa Monica Place has a great web site if you want to see more of what you can expect and see how great it looks.
