The Birth and Baby Resource Network will open a San Luis Obispo center at 849 Monterey St. to help inform the community about pregnancy, birth, and early parenting. The official opening is at 4 p.m. on April 26. The network is a nonprofit community-based volunteer organization that seeks to help educate and support childbearing women and their families. The group is also planning a lending library with information about childcare, breast-feeding, pregnancy, and related issues.

"I hope it becomes a place people feel free to come in and share ideas and learn from each other," said member and volunteer Andrea Rooks. The fees for the center were raised through fundraisers, with the annual Birth and Baby Fair as the largest moneymaker. This year's fair will be held May 12 in Mission Plaza. For more information, call 546-3755 or visit www.bbrn.org.

You can be drug free and still get high this 4/20. Ambission Clothing will present its fall collection and showcase local artists involved with the Central Coast's surf and skateboard culture. The event, dubbed Get High on Art, comes to the Art Minds Gallery, 560 Higuera St., on April 20 from 7 p.m. to 11ish. Admission will be free, as will beer and wine. "San Luis Obispo is a hotbed of talent for the surf/skate industry, and we want everyone to know what sort of products San Luis produces," said Ambission Clothing part owner Dustin Odbert. "Get ready to drink some art, look at some beers, and have an amazing time."

Featured artists will include Russ Pope, Shawn Hewson, Eric Soderquist, Burly Vreeland, and Aaron and Devon Gomez. For more information, visit www.ambissionclothing.com.
