It looks like the work of Belgian Case Studyo is headed toward the light. We mean this literally: they are now making lights. First it was Grotesk’s 6FT – 6IN footed sculptural lamp and now Steven Harrington has made three unique lamps with the artist series brand. If you have the money, you should probably buy one of these happy little light friends.
It’s hard to describe Slake. It is a Los Angeles based publication that is thick literary journal, art sharer, poetry slam, and LA conscious content creator working under the perma-tag, “A City And Its Stories.” It’s very sleekly made and laid out to reflect its theme which, for late 2012′s Issue 4, is dirt. Assembling around fifty creatives, the resulting dirty issue is over two hundred pages of content.
Morning Glory Confections is a Los Angeles sweets maker known for their brittles. They come in tiny clear boxes with dainty geometric blue flowers on them with crazy sounding flavors like “Thai Curry Peanut” and “Chai Tea & Cashew.” They each take a flavor concept, mash them with a nut of some sort, and lets everything settle in together. They’re quite inventive and a nice entry in local brittle.
What are you doing tonight? Getting a drink? But you don’t know *where* you are going? We wanted to remind you that we’ve made a pretty lengthy list of places to grab cocktails from that you can always find on our Los Angeles, I’m Yours Drink Map. The map is intended to be a curated resource of places new and old to try out if you’re ever looking for a drink. There’s a ton of different places that range from super fancy Beverly Hills places to divey, dark places in Highland Park.
It’s that time of the year. The announcement of Coachella brings a flurry of activity to the entire Southland. For those “magical” two weekends, every venue in the city has the luxury of booking the same acts all across the city. Some call them “pre-Chella,” my friends call it “localchella” shows, others call them a better use of $500 than sitting in the desert. Regardless, Pomona becomes a favorite destination for the musicians and comedians of Coachella. The beautiful Fox Theater and the Glasshouse will, without a doubt, host many shows, with tons of “surprise guests.” But you’ll be wondering…
Where do I get a bite to eat around here?
