Get excited everyone, the best holiday of the year, Easter, is almost here! Ok, maybe Cinco de Mayo's better, and also St. Patty's, Christmas, 4th of July, Hanukkah, New Year's, Kwaanza, Boxing Day, President's Day, and pretty much anything that might give you a day off of work. But just because pastel-colored chocolates and egg painting stops being fun after (SPOILER ALERT!) you realize the Easter Bunny's not real, doesn't mean there aren't alternative, adult ways to have fun on J.C.'s big day. Here are some thoughts.
Welcome to "Traveling With The 99%," our guide to getting the most out of your holiday travel—whether you're going by plane, train, boat, or automobile. Today's topic: onboard boozing.
Like most mega-cities, L.A. is populated with lots and lots of people who grew up somewhere else, and this is never more clear than during the holidays, when the 20-somethings clear out of town so thoroughly that you can actually lift your arms inside The Brig. Chances are you're going somewhere also, and perhaps you're feeling the trepidation that comes with knowing that the only plane ticket you could afford is a middle-seat on a red-eye that's putting you in Denver by way of Jacksonville. Which brings us to today's crucial part of economy class holiday travel: drinking.

It's difficult sometimes to remember just how large this country of ours is. America is a broad, diverse land, and by that, I mean that America is basically completely jammed full of crazy weirdos. Some of these weirdos are completely awesome and many of them are horrible, but regardless of where they fall on the scale, one thing remains true: you will encounter almost all of them (99% of them) while flying economy class.

With that, we bring you some of our top summer guides to an array of awesome things, most of which are booze-related. More»
As you've hopefully noticed from our past few Best Of Summer 2012 retrospectives, we had a pretty great summer in most regards, from crazy pool parties to club openings. But we realized that some of our favorite posts from the past few months defied easy categorization. Some of these were news or gossip items that we just had to share with you guys, some are looks at L.A. history or local characters, and there's even a retrospective of shamelessly debaucherous tequila tales in there that you can choose to view as either a warning or a challenge. Enjoy them all: I know we did. More»
Last night I saw a pack of dirty hippies in Davey Crockett coonskin caps hardcore frolic across the intersection of Sunset and Gower, barefoot, and I'm 95% sure they were on some combo of E and acid. It was 7:45pm. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of it for you, but we do for these other unbelievable, obscene, and just plain strange occurrences and sights seen that took our breath away over the last few months. From public nudity en masse to the discovery of a Hollywood Hobo Fight Club, here's a collection of our favorite local WTF moments of summer. More»
What says "summer" more than a pool party? Even out here, where a winter snowstorm would be considered a legitimate act of God, we still breathlessly await the summer months, when the temperatures climb from comfortable to scorching and we all have an excuse to get blindingly day-drunk next to a hotel pool, mansion pool, or even an extremely well-placed inflatable. Oh, and there's a whole new round of poolside shenanigans after the sun goes down. But don't take our word for how wonderful our summertime pool party scene is. We'll show you, as we continue our Best Of Summer series. More»
Keeping up with the fast-paced merry-go-round cycle of L.A.'s fickle nightlife landscape is a duty we take full responsibility for so that you don't have to. Just staying current on the whole Paul & Andre/Smoke & Mirrors arrivals, soft openings, relocations, and abrupt closures saga was in itself as exhausting as watching an episode of "The Newsroom." From the beach to the middle of Hollywood, here's a look at the openings of summer's most noteworthy new nightlife destinations: More»
There's plenty to love about summer, sure, but is there really anything more consistently awesome than the live music? It seems like every weekend, there's another festival, another secret performance, another KCRW-sponsored conceptual series. Simply put, if you love seeing live music as much as we do, you had very little to complain about this summer. Let's take a look back at some of our favorite music moments from the past few months.

One of the drawbacks to many electronic music shows is that they take place indoors. As much fun as a club night with a major headlining DJ can be, a sweaty, claustrophobic indoor space is just kind of the wrong look when you're in the middle of a summer as beautiful as we've been having here in Southern California*. That's why we're beyond thrilled for next weekend (August 3 + 4)'s HARD Summer, Downtown L.A.'s annual massive rave-style outdoor music festival, which looks to seriously up the ante this year with 2 days of music across 4 stages and an insane lineup that should satisfy ravers, indie kids and even hip hop heads. Read on for the full lineup, set times and more! More»
4th Of July Weekend is just about here. Hopefully, you're putting in your last full day before the five-day weekend, even staying late in the office if you have to in order to make sure every "i" is dotted, because the American workforce is full of can-do team players that never quit until the job is... hey wait, where are you going? You're leaving already? It's barely noon! Well, before you go, a question: you're not, by chance, going to a pool party this weekend, are you? Because I hear you don't do so well at pool parties.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
