Premium tequila and mural painting might appear to be an unusual pairing at first, but both have very deep and very important roots in Latin culture. The two popular customs came together last week with the help of Jose Cuervo Tradicional premium tequila as it celebrated the launch of its "Tradicional Mural Project 2012" with a rollicking party at the Book Bindery's Brick Building in Culver City, featuring live music from Nick Waterhouse.

With less than 24 hours notice to pull off a debut soft opening for the L.A. rendition of NYC's beloved barbershop speakeasy bar, the Blind Barber boys drew quite an impressive crowd seldom seen west of La Brea to Culver City last night. After receiving news their liquor license was active on Wednesday night, they rallied the troops and got emergency backup from mainest men Will Crimes and Nick Foster to supply tunes for the first night of operation at Blind Barber L.A. We swung by to help christen the new digs with cocktails and snapped some shots (alas, with camera phone) to give you a sense of what the place is like in action along with our notes on the experience.

Get familiar with the Blind Barber because it's about to become your go-to neighborhood spot for the lads needing a trim or shave by day, and speakeasy-style watering hole by night, just like its beloved original location in NYC's East Village. Except for one little thing: the noms. Yes, the L.A. rendition of Blind Barber which opens today introduces food to its repertoire of services and GofG L.A. has the first inside look at this fine establishment and its menu of tasty new food and drink offerings.

Fantastic news for those of you who thought you were going to have to choose between paying for your heart medicine this month and getting the traffic cops off your back! After going back and forth on their beleaguered red light camera system, the LAPD has finally declared that they will not pursue the 65,000+ drivers with unpaid red light camera tickets, most of which are in the neighborhood of $500 per violation. So if you're still holding an unpaid L.A. red light ticket, congratulations! Go treat yourself to an iPad. More»
With all due respect to the L.A. Weekly's Squid Ink blog (even if the departure of Jonathan Gold gives them a kind of "Van Halen with Sammy Hagar" vibe these days), we have a bone to pick with their recent "Top 10 Late Night Eats" list. It's pretty simple: 11 p.m., when several of the restaurants on their list close, is not even remotely "late night." More»
Eating after midnight: even if you're not worried about turning into a Gremlin, it's not exactly good for you, right? But let's face it, we've all had nights when the bars are closing, the booze is burning a hole in your stomach, and you'd rather lay down in the middle of Wilshire than go home to a fridge full of condiments and frozen broccoli. These are the nights when you need our indispensable guide to the best restaurants on the west side (east side guide coming soon!) that will still be open when tonight turns into tomorrow. More»
We've all had those mornings- you wake up after a hard night of partying, struggle to locate your phone, wallet, and/or pants, chase four Advils with a double-shot of espresso, and tell yourself that you're Never Drinking Again.

For those of you ready to keep the party going in daylight, here's a list of our favorite all-you-can-drink brunch spots where you can wine and dine your early-morning woes away. More»
Have you stocked up on bottled water and batteries? Updated your Last Will and Testament? Mel Gibson-proofed your house? If the answer to any of these questions is "no," you'd better get it together, because come Friday night, Carmageddon is upon us, and in the words* of County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, "it is totally going to f*#% your s*#$ up."
But don't reach for the suicide pills just yet (keep them close just in case), because we're here to help. Presenting: the Guest of a Guest LA Carmageddon Survival Guide! More»
