What to do on a nice summer weekend in L.A.? Well, seeing as there seems to be a different one every weekend, go to a music festival--that's what! As the summer of live music continues, this weekend brought the 2013 Jubilee Music & Arts Festival in DTLA's Arts District. Previously held in Silver Lake, this year's event boasted headliners such as the Black Lips and Free Energy, plus food from some of the finest L.A. food trucks and vendors.
The Hamptons Free Ride boys are back again this summer, and this season they're hitting up Southampton. The electric shuttle had its inaugural ride back in 2011, when locals James Mirras and Alex Esposito started driving people, including Bon Jovi, around the Hamptons beaches for free. On top of their service in East Hampton, Montauk, and Amagansett, the Hamptons Free Ride boys will be cruising out to Southampton beginning on Memorial Day. They partnered with Southampton locals, Chris and Stacy Dimon, to launch the new route. Now, getting around town and to Cooper's beach will be easier than ever. More»
Now that the season of giving, spending and celebrating is in full swing, high-end fashion boutique KIN teamed up with AGAIN Apparel Tuesday night to host their annual holiday party. From gourmet bites, free-flowing cocktails, pampering and exclusive shopping of the fall/winter collections, the night gave the crowd of L.A. tastemakers who came out plenty to keep their stylish selves busy at the West Hollywood boutique.
A collection of top streetwear designers, pro skaters, stylists and other local tastemakers stepped out last night to help leading independent footwear brand SUPRA celebrate the release of their hot new kicks. With Cyress Hill's DJ Muggs laying down the party jams and free-flowing SVEDKA throughout the night, the SUPRA team proved they know how to properly throwdown on a Thursday.
Birth of the Cool. Seven years ago, Carlos Quirarte, a twenty-something originally hailing from The Mission in San Francisco, was looking for the perfect spot to throw an after party for the uber hip clothing company Earnest Sewn, who he was working for at the time. Earnest Sewn, whose name and design principle is literally translated as “product sewn in earnest,” needless to say, needed a space that was authentically cool. His buddy Matt Creed, the DJ-cum-actor-cum-artist, and down by law kind of guy who walked around downtown Manhattan with Kirsten Dunst on his arm, introduced Quirarte to his former NYU roommate, Matt Kliegman, who just happened to be throwing the best downtown party in the city at the time. Matt, a kid from Long Island, hell-bent on leaving his corporate job at JPMorgan, was running the show at “SALON,” a place so cool that to this day it doesn’t have a Google search result. The venue, located on the east side of what was in the works to become the Jane Hotel, went on to become “Socialista,” and is currently Café Gitane at the Jane Hotel. The east and west coast kids met, joined forces and quickly became pied pipers of the Downtown scene. More»

Hamptons Free Ride is back again this summer, and this year they're hitting the road in Montauk. Just as the name implies, the free electric shuttle, started last year by locals James Mirras and Alex Esposito, drives people around town and to the beach for completely free of cost.
And with new sponsors, including Zappos, Heineken, East End Tick Control, Flywheel Sports, and Royal Botania, this means more free stuff for the riders ranging from Vita Cocos and frisbees, to discount cards and nail polish. According to co-founder, Alex Esposito, "We're really trying to hook our passengers up with a lot of free stuff this year."
A free ride and free stuff. More»
