You have written your tribute to David Bowie on Facebook, and you have gotten drunk and spent the entire night watching Ziggy Stardust videos. Now you need to get out and be with other Bowiephiles who share your loss, but where do you go? There is no bar frequented by Bowie, no park dedicated to him, and no statue (at least not yet). Some fans have left flowers and glitter at his star on the Walk of Fame (North side of the 7000 block of Hollywood Boulevard off of Orange).
Here are a number of events where you can you can skate, DJ and dance your heart out. Let all the children boogie.
