Launch of Bigfoot Lodge West’s New 80-Whiskey List

This Saturday, Bigfoot Lodge West in Culver City/Palms is launching a brand-new cocktail menu and whiskey list. “But didn’t they just open? What’s with a new list already?” you may ask, and yes they opened just over a year ago. But this new whiskey list boasts to have “the biggest small batch bourbon selection and…

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…

Waterloo & City: Fresh Pub Fare & an Impressive Start

I was so excited when I heard that gastropub Waterloo & City just opened up in my old crappy hood, down the street from my old favorite BBQ joint/car wash at Outdoor Grill. It’s only been in business for four days and yet has already received a ton of attention. Maybe this stretch of Washington…

Pitfire Artisan Pizza and Its New Spring Menu

When I lived in Mar Vista for 10 years, I hated the fact that there weren’t any cool eateries or bars within walking distance of my hovel near Venice and Centinela. Cut to four years later and now there’s a fancified Alibi Room, Rockenwagner Bakery, the Curious Palate and, most recently, Pitfire Artisan Pizza, which…

Rush Street: Girls' Night Out of Pole Dancing & Girly Drinks

I did something the other night that I swore to myself I’d never ever do. I took a pole dancing lesson. Yup. Rush Street has an ’80s ladies’ night on Wednesdays on its second floor where ladies can take a free pole dancing lesson courtesy of Studio City’s pole dancing/fitness studio, Polistic. And I was…

Blog Bite: $4 Buffalo Trace, $5 Sazerac Rye at Bigfoot Lodge West

Stopped by the Bigfoot Lodge West for my friend Shelley’s celebratory cocktail hour. We’re celebrating her getting into UCLA med school. She had confused this Bigfoot with the Atwater one which has a happy hour. This one doesn’t but fortunately on Monday nights it IS whiskey lover night. Meaning we have our choice of a…

Beacon Rediscovered: Butterscotch Pudding, Happy Hour, Quality Dinner

The last time I had dinner at Beacon in Culver City was, wow, a boyfriend-and-many-bad-dates ago and pre CoC. I vaguely remember having the Bento box and not really having anything stand out about my dining experience. I’ll blame it on the company back then. Heh. In any case I hadn’t gone back til I…

"In Bed Together" Opening at Royal/T

By fauxLAhipster Since Caroline had to go out of town for her bf’s Lemons race, she asked me to cover this apparently uber-strict-guestlisty opening (only the opening was guestlisty; the exhibit is open to the public right now) of “In Bed Together” right off the heels of Royal/T’s insanely popular Hello Kitty Three Apples exhibit….

Akasha's Tru Organic Cocktail and Indian Dinner Pairing

Awesomeness! And FINALLY! A dinner that pairs food with not wine or beer but cocktails! I’m so excited! Chef Akasha Richmond of Culver City’s Akasha Restaurant, along with Litty Mathews and Melkon Khosrovian — the owners/creators of Tru Organic Spirits — is behind this very special and rarely seen food event. Chef Akasha, a fan…

Culver City Happy Hours: Fraiche, Gyenari, Rush Street

I’m always on the hunt for a decent happy hour on the Westside since I can never seem to make it on time for the ones in Hollywood and downtown. So I was giddy to find that Culver City has a wealth of happy hours, well, I found three. The only thing is they all…
