Chances are that if you ran into Guerra de la Paz's colorful sculptures in an art museum, you'd enjoy them from afar and then take a few steps closer. That's because the Cuban born American artists who make up Guerra de la Paz, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz, create curiously interesting sculptures made out of old clothes. In fact, they originally took their…
Please Lord, before I die, let me be pelted with thousand of tomatoes. I'll make my way over to Spain to participate in the world famous La Tomatina festival. There, I'll get battered and bruised up, and for an intense hour or two I'll remember why tomatoes belong safely in my stomach and not splattered on my face.
Today, on August 26, 2009, more than 45,000 people from all over the world descended on the small Valencian town of Bunol, Spain to experience the world famous tomato… Continue

The guys at Arrested Motion took some awesome shots at the opening of Gary Baseman's “La Noche de la Fusion” at the Corey Helford Gallery this last weekend. These photos really show why LA's art scene is one the best in the world!
Baseman's first solo return to Los Angeles in over two… Continue

Still don't have a gift for Valentine's Day? If you haven't rushed out to buy your La Perla lingerie, might I suggest some good old fashioned Victoria's Secret? They just released pictures of their… Continue
There will only be a few times in my life when I can say that I saw true history in the making. Sure, we weren't shivering amongst millions who braved frigid temperatures to watch the inauguration live at Capitol Hill. In fact, in our t-shirts and jeans, we basked in the sweet California sunlight with a thousand other Angelenos today. One quick sweep of the crowd and… Continue
As a follow-up to a previous post, Sam and I decided to hit up a few Park(ing) Day LA spots on Friday to see what kind of creativity and ingenuity would come out of two completely different companies - Google and Causecast.
Our good friend Tony, who coincidentally told us that Gyu-Kaku was the bomb, also recommended this French restaurant named La Cachette. Now mind you, I am not a big French food fan. In fact, we went to Paris about a year ago and I almost swore it off for good. I did go to… Continue
Once Annie and I submerged ourselves in the heart of Santee Alley, it felt like we weren't in Los Angeles anymore. It felt like we were on the streets of South America at a huge shopping bazaar. We had tons of fun walking around and hunting for hidden gems.
Santee Alley is about four blocks long and is not a place you go to find great quality clothes you would find at a place like South Coast Plaza. It's more like a place you can find neat,… Continue

Rated 4 our of 5 stars on yelp, I was simply expecting a bit more. Located in the heart of Downtown LA, Suede Bar is in the Bonaventure Hotel and just opened on June 22nd of this year. The bar can fit about 100 people max and has comfortable suede couches and chairs. The bright red seating along with the red lighting is a bit overwhelming and a tad cheesy.
- the DJ was playing good dance music.
- the… Continue

Most of you like vodka. Vodka-soda, vodka-cranberry, vodka-tonic, etc. Not me. I'm a whisky guy. That's why when I walked into Seven Grand and saw that they served over 200 kinds of whisky, I felt at home. The sylish whisky bar is dark and is decorated like a private hunting-club (stuffed moose heads with big antlers on the wall), with pool tables, and a good sized outdoor smoking patio with seating.
Summer is here, So Cal is scorching, and it's time to jump in the pool! Every Saturday and Sunday from 1pm-7pm, the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA hosts a raging rooftop pool party! Listen to different DJ's every week while you enjoy your drink, the view, and your nice new tan. I haven't gone yet but have heard good things about it and plan to go soon.
-Call the hotel to find out who is promoting the day you want to… Continue
Eternal Verities by Caia Koopman - Opening reception on 7/5 @ 8pm-11pm
When I first saw Caia Koopman's work, it immediately drew me in. “My philosophy behind this body of work is that there is a strained relationship between nature, humanity and femininity. Nature and femininity have a huge presence in my art. Not only is nature beautiful and strong, but simultaneously fragile as are my female characters. I want to provide a message… Continue
