The sixth annual charity event celebrates the LA Cocktail Community and the artists among them, with proceeds always benefiting a charity: this year proceeds will benefit […]
A stately glass structure rising above LA Live, the JW Marriott watches over all the hottest events downtown. The JW, if I may deign to be so familiar, is home to many world class dining establishments, including Wolfgang Puck’s WP24 & Nest, Ford’s Filing Station and The Mixing Room – which will once again be […]
If Drinking had a high holiday, that holiday would be Repeal Day. On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment was fully ratified in our Constitution which effectively repealed the 18th Amendment, the very malefactor that had brought about Prohibition in the first place. Thus, drinking no longer had to happen in clandestine speakeasies, giving Americans the freedom to […]
Gaze off into infinity. Forget your deadlines, your back pain, your car payment, and your nagging neighbor. Be present. That’s what a yoga practice asks of you, but that’s not a simple request when your gym is downstairs from your office or you’re doing asanas in a stuffy room looking at traffic through the window.

Lately, my life has been a series of tepid decisions. I choose clear polish for my finger tips. I have been driving the same reliable car for eleven years. My wardrobe is a mix of whites, blacks, and grays. However, something has come over me this summer. I have been exploring the possibility of being bold. Making choices, instead of sitting on the sidelines. Summer calls for something bright and fun, and by-golly I’m going to take advantage of it!
Summer is the season of soirées. The long days of summer entice us to gather together to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors that have been hidden from us all winter. Whether you’re hanging out on a blanket on the grass, sunning on a beach towel in the sand, or lounging by the pool at a backyard barbecue, this Summer Picnic Punch is made for sharing and will guarantee that you’ll get invited back.

The Roger Room has a new Spring Menu. Since California knows nothing of seasons, winter being just a name we call 3 months out of the year, it is nice to mark the advent of Spring in our calendars with something significant. Some choose Groundhogs; I choose cocktails. Voted Best West Hollywood Bar by LA […]
Five years ago, a handful of dedicated cocktail authorities and historians had a dream. This dream was to find a place to preserve and showcase the distinctly American art of the cocktail. They wanted a place that would educate and advance the evolution of the cocktail community. That dream was made into reality in The […]
I love breakfast. I’m one of those people who wants eggs at dinner and is perennially pissed when I miss the customary 11am cut off at most establishments. Thank goodness for Dora Herrera. Dora and her mother have been serving up James Beard award winning food since “Mama Yuca” opened up a little stand in […]
