For the New York Giant’s Fan we suggest a good old fashion Whiskey Sour. This sour whiskey drink is a favorite for many and the grenadine adds a sweet touch that is pleasing to the taste buds. For the Boston Patriots Fan we suggest a Boston favorite cocktail - Gin, apricot brandy, grenadine, and a splash of lemon and garnish with an orange-cherry flag.
No matter who wins at least you will be prepared with a perfectly delicious cocktail to keep the party going!
It’s time to refine your pallet and explore the wonderful world of mixology! Time to put down the Red Bull & Vodka and try something worth sipping on!
Next time you go to a Happy Hour with your coworkers pick a cocktail that really makes a statement! LA Weekly did the heavy lifting on the top 55 cocktails in LA and we narrowed down our favorites.
1. Mojito Sphere: At Providence get 3 Courses of “cocktails”: three spoons; three spheres: a mojito, a greyhound and a gin and tonic. Our fav is the Mojito hands down!
2. Flaming Honey Bowl: Taste of the island to be shared at Rosemead tiki institution Bahooka
3. Tequila con Sangrita: At Border Grill, the spicy, citrus-based house sangrita is just right mixed with tequila.
What do you wear the opening of Hedi Slimane’s “California Dreamin” show at the MOCA Pacific Design Center?
We’re thinking the always chic look in black. We suggest picking out your finest dark asymmetric sweater, your ultra skinny Edie pull on jeans, and your fav black leather bag! This exhibit is a must-see for all of you who cannot get enough of the famed photographer’s black and white gritty prints. The second floor will feature a full-scale installation with projected images and a specially built stage that will host numerous up and coming Cali bands.

Thursday is technically considered the weekend, right? We’re going to have to go ahead and give that a definitive “YES!” If you’re with us on this one, keep reading.
Stationed in the Hollywood Roosevelt, the Spare Room is a modern day gaming parlour and cocktail lounge that is anything but your typical Hollywood scene. Not only does this swanky lounge feature two vintage bowling lanes amidst a sea of custom, eclectic furnishings, but this October, the fabulous Samantha Shelton (of the jazz cabaret act ’If All the Stars Were Pretty Babies’ with Zooey Deschanel) is curating a live music series every Thursday! Are you dying yet? Because we are.
Now, what to wear, what to wear? This is the perfect time to debut the new Fall/Winter collection! This line blends rock ‘n roll design with DIY flare, perfect for the retro feel of the performances. Think along the lines of the Fitted Zip Sleeve & Front Jacket paired with High Waist Skinnies. Introduce this edgy ensemble on October 27 for The Petrojvic Blasting Co. performance!
If you’re looking for something authentic to do this Hallowe’en forget pounding the streets with the kids and instead head to Hackney for a weekend of horror movies in a church. The Round Chapel in Hackney, E5 will play host to these special Hallowe’en screenings from the people who brought London the Rooftop Film Club. Experience Cinema is a new way of watching cut, alternative and classic films in unusual settings.

There is a licensed bar and visitors are encouraged to dress up, though fancy dress is not essential. Prepare to scare yourself silly in this spookiest of settings.
Attire: This is a hipster hangout housed in an industrial steam-punk venue! So, with that said ,dress code is not strict but they do ask you to be in “East Side lounge” attire. May we suggest our Loulou Skinny Mid Rise Trouser with a chambray top and a motor cycle jacket. (Yeah Rosie the Riveter is our inspiration. Duh.)
Got to have drink: Depending on your plan of action the wine + beers are all well crafted and distinct choices. The bartenders are very friendly and if you tell them your usual likings they can suggest a wine or beer selection for you. Try being adventurous and give something new and or local a try!
Attire: Since this is a more casual spot you might want to keep it hip and go with your Gwen wide legged Hudsons and pair with a knit top and your wooden platforms for lift. The bar stools are high (just saying).
So with that said, all we can say is that this secret underground sensation is obviously THE place to be (if you know the secret location). However, don’t be fooled as this is not your Grandma’s BINGO night in face there is hardly any bingo at all! A night filled with loud music, booze, markers and lots of yelling this party is the place to see and be seen! Bingo is indeed being played, but in a more anarchist/crazy/fun kind of way. A night of debauchery that was born and raised in London and then like a bat out of hell graced it’s presence on our fine coast.
Oh and P.S there’s also a dress code: “Undercover on your way there, dangerous once you’re inside.”
We recommend your black stealth Hudson Collin Signature Skinny with a beat up white tee and your leather jacket. Undercover, Hardcore + ready for action!
But remember….you didn’t hear all this from us!
First things first: Grab your go-to pair of Carly Flap Pocket Straight Leg Hudsons. These jeans have a true straight leg form and give you that “never-ending legs” look! The Elm Dark Blue wash are the perfect balance of a rich, masculine indigo with a feminine whisker detail flare. Be sure to cuff the bottoms or roll the hem the slightest bit for a subtle greaser look!
Avoid all the bells and whistles and go for a sheer, plain top. Crew or V-neck approved! A sweater will also compliment this outfit nicely, try a longer black cardigan (with suede elbow pads!) out for size.
If there is one shoe that will reign supreme this Fall, it is the oxford. A pair of Oxfords will go a long way, but most importantly, you can dress them up OR down! A pair of two-toned Oxfords or Tassel Loafers will give an air of masculinity, but still show off the dainty form of your female foot.
While our male counterparts are typically not adorned in jewelry, there are a few staple items that will complete this ant-feminine ‘fit such as a boyfriend watch paired with a black felt hat. These last two items will blend all the different pieces together and polish off the look!
