I never thought this day would come and am a little embarrassed to admit I have a genuine emotional attachment to something as silly sounding as a party in the vapid world of Hollywood nightlife, but it's the truth. Tonight we say goodbye to an L.A. institution that has more than stood the test of time with the final Teddy's Fridays after an unprecedented six or so-year run. More»
via guestofaguest.com: Let's skip the pick-up artist BS and get down to brass tacks. There are some basics to know about how to approach women guys should be aware of, so please allow our cohorts in NYC to enlighten you with some game tips on what and what not to do when picking up women at a nightclub.

In the seven-ish months since Paul & Andre opened its doors and diluted the obscenely over-saturated bottle service, fog cannons and dubstep scene to bring a little bit of NYC flavor up in Hollywood, the landscape of L.A. nightlife has changed. Namely, it gave us a reason to believe not all nightclubs in this city have to be tacky. I personally have come to love the place and spend entirely too much time there but at least I've been taking full advantage of a good thing while I still can before it closes on Sunday. More»
A night out on the Sunset Strip invariably contains a few things: falling on the ground, a D-list celebrity encounter and a heated drunken argument with a complete stranger. Since Bristol Palin's whole life is a D-list celebrity encounter, we know she was able to knock off that whole checklist in about 4 minutes of riding the bull as a heckler screams "your mother's a whore!" at Saddle Ranch last night thanks to the video below.

[Photo via] Considering it hadn't already been condemned by the Department of Public Health due to the great frequency of human feet on dining surfaces, we're actually impressed with how long SBE was able to keep XIV afloat. Eater reports the Vegas nightclub in disguise as a Michael Mina restaurant shuttered for good this week. More»
Was The Colony built on an Indian burial ground or something? For a place with such a poncey Hamptons theme, SBE's strangely celeb-happy tourist trap is seeming even less Montauk and more Seaside Heights, what with the amount of drunken brawls and police interventions we've seen as of late. The latest entry in the encyclopedia of sloppy awfulness comes courtesy of star-faced rapper The Game, who stands accused of punching a man in the face late last night. Let's review video of last night's scuffle and brush up on those that came before it. More»
Stop scoffing, you snobs—with Brent and Jen and Samantha Ronson all there tonight, it's going to be just like the golden era of Hyde circa 2006 (?). At least that seems to be the goal. After severing their business partnership from him in 2009, we were surprised to learn Brent Bolthouse and Jen Rosero are back on team SBE for the reopening of Hyde. Once the toughest door and hottest late-night spot in L.A., the forlorn club had succumbed to dubstep and bedazzled Amatuer Night MVPs before Sam Nazarian's group took Hyde off of life support in February for a much needed time-out from L.A.'s mercurial nightlife scene. Since then, it's undergone a makeover and enough time has passed to clear the air of the douchery that was stinking up the place in its twilight years. More»
via guestofaguest.com: We've all found ourselves trapped in a painful alcohol-induced conversation at the bar. How did you get yourself into it? But more importantly, how do you get out? It often seems like there's no way to break away from the unbearable exchange that won't end, but we have some escape tactics for you the next this happens. MORE>>
Over the course of human history, visionaries and altruists have joined forces and formed societies with the express goal of changing history and overcoming impossible odds, whether it's resisting Nazis or proving that the Earth revolves around the Sun. But here in L.A., a society has formed with maybe the most audacious goal of all: to create fun and unique nightlife on Saturdays. And despite being written off as Amateur Night, their Society parties at Trousdale seem to be a hit. More»
I'm not sure if it's that people with preexisting conditions flock here or if this town brings out the cray cray in its once sane inhabitants, but L.A. is loaded with unstable individuals. Combine that with urban sprawl where cars are pretty much a necessity for this population, a rush hour that's actually several hours that span across the better portion of the daylight hours, Coffee Beans and Starbucks' that outnumber gas stations, swollen egos and we have an intense and volatile driving situation. And in a city of aggressive drivers who don't care if they live or die, they just don't want to have to sit behind the car waiting to make a left turn, the roads can be a scary place for cyclists.

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.
