Before he went Little League, your hubby sang the blues, jammed on the electric guitar, and was a chapter shy of completing The Great American Novel.
Give him a chance to flex his former talents at Pops & Tots, a new monthly open-mic night for dads hosted by Grow Kid Grow. The cozy Silver Lake resale shop moves the racks and cracks brews for papas to perform for — or with — tykes. Get there early to score parking and great finds (Halloween costumes, discontinued Dwell bedding).
Moms are welcome, too. But if you’ve already heard him recite the Star Wars prologue backward, take the night off to do things you used to do.
Every third Friday of the month, 7-9 p.m., Grow Kid Grow, 4310 West Sunset Boulevard, between Bates and Fountain Avenues, Silver Lake (323-661-4769 or growkidgrow.com).
