Eat My Blog Summer 2010 Charity Bake Sale Plus 3 Recipes

Last year’s blogger charity bake sale, Eat My Blog, was such a huge success that it just makes sense to make it a biannual thing. Not only is it for a good cause, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, but I can only go so long without such yummy fare. This summer’s bake sale will feature…

Red O Restaurant: New Mexican, Tequila Tunnel and More Cowbell

I’m going to admit something to you that may get me disbarred from the L.A. Food Bloggers Association, if there was one. I don’t know who this Rick Bayless is. At least I didn’t really before I was invited to a blogger dinner at the new Red O Restaurant (Bayless created the Mexican cuisine menu…

Urban Hike: Robertson Boulevard From West Hollywood to Culver City

Living in L.A. we come to accept that all these cars and all that traffic are an intrinsic part of our culture. Hey, this is a sprawl so we spend a great deal of time in our automobiles to get to work and play. But while we do that we end up skipping over a…

Photo Gallery: Nights With Neve Ice Party at Osteria La Buca

Last night’s Neve Ice party at Osteria La Buca was like a blogger Tweetup. Build free, delicious cocktails and they will come. Heh. I arrived with ShopEatSleep and SocialDomainLA and ran into Food GPS, Teenage Glutster, marpop, SauceLA, Thirsty in LA, Squashblossom, inomthings and Eating LA. Craziness. We were all there to enjoy the cocktails…

Bloggers, Brew & Boardgames: Tamarack Lodge and Mammoth Brewing Company

What does a food/cocktail blogger do for fun in Mammoth? As you would guess, not much. The mountain resort town is a far cry from the destination spot for good food and well-made cocktails. I found this out on a Mammoth trip this past weekend with a bunch of my blogger friends. While the Village…

Tips on How To Send Back a Bad Meal at a Restaurant

You’re at a nice restaurant and discover that your entree is not up to snuff. Maybe it’s missing the goat cheese that was listed in its description on the menu, maybe it’s supposed to be a hot dish and it arrives cold. Do you a) complain to the server and ask the kitchen to remake…

This Weekend: $4 Maker's Happy Hour, More Bloggers Helping Haiti

Lots going on this weekend. And no I’m not talking football. I’m talking good-hearted bloggers, speed dating with derby girls and oh, football. Thursday, February 4, 2010 Maker’s Mark $4 Happy Hour at Checkers Downtown I’m so bummed I have to miss this. Of course this would be on the same day as my boozy…

LA Weekly's 2009 Web Awards Party at Bardot

I scored an invite to the most exclusive party I’ve ever had the privilege to be invited to. So exclusive that I basically had to win an award (or two) to get in. Yup, it was LA Weekly‘s 2009 Web Awards party at Bardot in Hollywood. And because the VIP venue in the Avalon has…

The Tar Pit: Swanky Times Are Here Again

We were going to crash the Tar Pit‘s press party no matter what. It was essentially a sneaky peek of the brand-new La Brea Avenue bar by famed mixologist Audrey Saunders (Pegu Club, NYC) and chef Mark Peel and Jay Perrin (Campanile). And this would be a hot ticket as press was swirling the Interwebs…

Best of L.A. Cupcakes Tour With Bloggers and Chevy

Happy National Cupcake Day! Yup, that’s today. And last Saturday I celebrated it early with a bunch of bloggers via a “best of L.A.” cupcakes tour thanks to Tara of Tara Met Blogs/LA Cupcake Meetup and Chevrolet. She normally does cupcake meetups at one location at a time but the carmaker was willing to supply…
