To kick-off the launch of their new Craft Cocktail Jelly Shot line, Ludlows Cocktail Co. threw a Bar Crawl in Downtown Los Angeles featuring exclusive first tastes of the Jelly Shots before they hit stores plus matching cocktails. The first stop was Peking Tavern, a Chinese street food gastropub, where people sipped on Wong Chiu Punch made with bai jiu, hibiscus and lemon to go with Ludlows Planter's Punch Jelly Shots, made with two year barrel aged dark Trinidad rum, pineapple, cherry, lime and coconut. The next bar was Mas Malo for Medicina Latinas with tequila blanco, lime, agave and ginger paired with Ludlows Fresh Lime Margarita Jelly Shots, made with tequila blanco, lime, triple sec, and salt. The night ended with DJ's, dancing, and bottled cocktail table service at Honeycut, where people helped themselves to Candy's Room, a mix of gin, Lillet Rose, lemon, peach and ginger fizz, to match with Ludlows Moscow Mule Jelly Shot, made with 5x distilled triple filtered vodka, ginger beer and lime.

At Fi3’s L.A. fashion and culture fair back in July, one menswear brand lassoed our attention—Freenote. The vintage-inspired clothing was well-tailored and almost uniform-like, but in an elegant fashion. Brothers Matt and Andrew Brodrick founded Freenote in 2013 in Southern California. The Brodricks worked with Electric, a premium eyewear and lifestyle company for ten years, building the brand. What separates Freenote from numerous California-based clothing companies, is that the company manufactures all its clothing in the States. The look is classic American menswear and made for men who appreciate quality and style. We had a chance to talk with the Brodricks about their company, their obsessions, and their stylish tips for guys.
