How To Eat a CoolHaus Shop Ice Cream Sandwich

CoolHaus ice cream sandwich by Caroline on Crack

The brick-and-mortar CoolHaus Shop in Culver City has lots of cool things going for it over its truck counterpart. Not only does it serve San Francisco’s Blue Bottle Coffee but it has a Mason Jar program where you can mix ice cream with stuff like hot chocolate, coffee, or hot chocolate AND coffee. But, I…

Corner Door Cocktails in Culver City Aren’t What They Seem

Mezcallin by Caroline on Crack

It was my first time at Corner Door, which just opened in June next to A-Frame and Waterloo & City in Culver City, and yet the bartender made me a French 75. I looked at him sideways, sorta disappointed that he decided to lead with that at this hosted tasting. Why not show off with…

2nd Annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade: Feasting in Galoshes

LA Loves Alex's Lemonade 2011by Caroline on Crack

This past Sunday the sun broke the weekend storm just for  L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade charity food fest. At least it seemed like it. Since the rain stopped and the clouds cleared in time for the early afternoon Culver City fundraiser. But the organizers were prepared just in case, erecting tents to shield the vendors…

Magnum Pop-Up's Bar Lounge at Royal/T: Where the Party's At

Traveling restaurant night, Magnum — by chef Joseph Mahon and “wine pimp” David Haskell — is finally hitting the Westside, taking over kawaii Japanese maid cafe Royal/T in Culver City for its third incarnation. A fitting setting not only because it complements the event’s drive to raise money for the Japanese Sake Brewers Association‘s (JSBA)…

City Tavern in Culver City: Tap That Ale

When I was a kid and drew up blueprints of my dream house — you know the one I’m talking about, where you put a swimming pool on the second floor and a dance floor in the middle of the kitchen — I had also imagined my fab pad to have beer taps. OK, by…

Blog Bite: Akasha's Doggy Treats

OK, obviously I didn’t eat the doggy treats made by Akasha Richmond of Akasha in Culver City, although I bet I could and I’d be fine since they’re made with peanut butter, honey, oats, brown rice flour and peanuts. Yup, I could so eat that! But no, Akasha gave the treats to my dog Mya…

Boozing With Man’s BFF: Dog-Friendly Bars in Culver City

Ever since I got my rescue pit bull Mya, I want to take her with me everywhere. I mean, wook at that wittle face! Unfortunately, most bars/restaurants usually won’t let me share a table with my new canine bff, something about it being a violation of a health code or something. Pfft! In any case,…

Favorite Bites and Sips at LA Loves Alex's Lemonade

Sunday may have been the inaugural LA Loves Alex’s Lemonade food event for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation — a charity dedicated to fighting childhood cancer — but you wouldn’t have known it was the first time by sauntering around the beautifully laid-out event. Unlike most food fests which are usually crazy feeding frenzies and absurdly…

Fraiche Culver City's Pre-Prohibition Nights: $1 Bites, $5 Cocktails

Ever since Albert Trummer left Fraiche Culver City back in 2008 to go and open up his own bar, Apotheke in New York City, Fraiche’s cocktail program has never been the same. But now there’s a new bartender behind the stick: Kiowa Bryan, formerly of the Soho House where she trained under The Varnish’s Chris…

All About Andy: The Warholian Exhibit at Royal/T Cafe

Last night was the press preview party for The Warholian, the new all-things-Andy-Warhol art exhibit at Royal/T Café in Culver City. Sponsored by Barbie — yes, the doll — and featuring tastes of limited edition “Tribute to Warhol” Dom Perignon champagne (normally $50 a glass!), how could I say no? Add to that the exhibit,…
