Busy As Hell Recently: But Still Finding That Time For Puro Pinche Pari!
Finally! A food and drink event that doesn't clash with my recent traveling schedule!
I'm proud to announce that I have been asked to cover this awesome event this year and will do so with utmost thirsty diligence! Pretty excited, I'm not going to front. I can finally attend these events that I'm pinche "legal". After all, it was this very event last year that landed me my mention on the New Yorker.

This year, along with Jonathan Gold, we are celebrating the speakeasy style of downtown LA with cocktails by 213 (Cole’s Red Car Bar, The Varnish, Las Perlas, and Seven Grand), and nine of the finest restaurants in town (Lazy Ox, First & Hope, Come Ca, Providence, Jar, Rustic Canyon, Susan Feniger’s Street, Grace, and Rivera). We’ve also invited KCRW’s Garth Trinidad to spin music all night. Chef Ludo Lefebvre will be attending, among other celebrity chefs.
I know the ticket price ain't something you're used to (at $185 a person) but its not like Zocalo doesn't deserve it. Since 2003 these guys have been bringing interesting people and the community together to cover the deepest of topics. All free, they keep it real as a non profit. Not to mention the admission price is probably 1/4 the price of how much $ it would actually cost to all these big hitter bars and restaurants one by one.
As if the night couldn't get any better...all this followed by a show from The Gears at The Redwood at Midnight! Good thing The "Pirate Bar" is walking distance from Union Station. Wow, going to be a fun weekend indeed.
