Following the stunning success of last year's sold out event, on Saturday night A+D Architecture and Design Museum threw its annual 'Celebrate' gala, inviting guests out for a full evening of music, drinks, bites, auctions and more, all in the name of design and creative thinking. A festive runway show featuring designer items echoing the fundraiser's theme of "The Journey" capped off the evening, and even sent some guests home with new, one-of-a-kind travel bags to accompany their own personal adventures.
To celebrate Raquel Pomplun's honor as the 2013 Playmate of the Year, last night Playboy took over one of Chateau Marmont's famous bungalows for an intimate party with a special artistic slant.

Some of the town's most philanthropic celebs, socialites, and young professionals stepped out to LACMA in support of UNICEF's Next Generation L.A. launch event last night.

As we saw at the S.K.A.M. Saturdays opening poolside bash at Drai's, L.A. has never been more ready for summer and pool party season to commence. The pools are heated, the DJs are on deck, our swimwear is on point, and legions of inflatable crocodiles and turtles await being floated upon, so it's your move, Mother Nature. Helping warm L.A. up until our favorite time of year arrives was Sunday's Peligroso "Cinnco" de Mayo celebration at the Hollywood Roosevelt's poolside Tropicana bar. See how fashionable guests like Louise Roe and fiancĂ© Josh Slack got into the summer spirit lounging poolside while sipping on the new Peligroso Cinnamon tequila as the turntable stylings of Mayer Hawthorne and DJ Snake Cut filled the sun-soaked afternoon.
In anticipation of Cinco de Mayo, Drai's Hollywood launched their weekly S.K.A.M. Saturdays over the weekend with a festive Mexican twist and Lil Jon as the guest DJ for the rooftop pool party. Yes, hard to remember after last night's torrential downpour and today's bizarre cold-but-warm-in-certain-spots thing, that Saturday couldn't have been more pleasant for a pool party. I'm really over trying to keep up with the erratic weather patterns of Southern California, but I do know a glorious pool party season is imminent, we just have to be patient and savor the 95-degree-day tastes we're given along the way. Until then, enjoy this preview from S.K.A.M. Saturdays at Drai's to see how awesome summer is going to be once it finally arrives.
L.A.'s masked Mexican wrestling phenomenon went all out for the holiday yesterday with the Lucha VaVOOM "Cinco de Mayan" Spectacular, bringing audiences a winning combination of various Mexican customs and entertainment. Held at The Mayan theater, the evening featured mariachis, "chicas fighting," feathered Aztec dancers, low riders, tamales, tequila, very sexy burlesque dancers, and of course the theatrical masked wrestling matches. Do you think your Cinco de Mayo got weird? Well, unless it involved dancing little people in full cholo and chola regalia or men in unitards kicking each other in the head, it doesn't hold a candle to Lucha VaVOOM's...
