My last absinthe-fueled escapade ended with being screamed at by my friend's older brother at 3am. He was taking the LSATs in the morning and did not appreciate being awakened to the booming cheers of the piss-drunk group of us competing in the noodle float "horse race" in the pool. Oh, and all of us were naked. Given this kind of debauchery absinthe inspires, I kind of understand why it was illegal in this country until six years ago. But in honor of National Absinthe Day, we've come up with the best places in town to observe the holiday. Make Hemingway proud and stop by one of these top 6 L.A. spots serving absinthe cocktails.

My last absinthe-fueled escapade ended with being screamed at by my friend's older brother to shut up at 3am. He was taking the LSATs in the morning and did not appreciate being awakened to the booming cheers of the piss-drunk group of us competing in the noodle float "horse race" Olympics being held in his parents' backyard pool. Oh, and all of us were naked. Given this kind of debauchery absinthe inspires, I kind of understand why it was illegal in this country until six years ago. But today is National Absinthe Day, the anniversary of the lifting of the U.S. ban which we celebrate by enjoying our right to dance freely with the green fairy tonight. We've done the work for you and come up with the best places in town to observe the holiday, so once you've attended to your responsibilities for the day, make Hemingway proud and stop by one of these top 6 L.A. spots serving absinthe cocktails.

I'm not saying I agreed with it being outlawed, but I totally understand why absinthe was illegal in this country until five years ago. My last adventure in drinking (not sipping, but drinking) absinthe, a group of us ended up in a pool at my friend's parents' house in the middle of the night, naked, with his older brother coming out to scream at us to stop being so loud because he was taking the LSATs in the morning. And this is the kind of debauchery absinthe leads to with it's very special "let's get naked" buzz. Today marks National Absinthe Day to celebrate the five-year anniversary of its US ban being lifted, giving you all the more reason to come out for a dance with the green fairy tonight. We've done our homework and come up with this cheat sheet to the best places in town to get your green drank on in honor of the high holiday. More»
When NYC nighlife barons Paul Sevigny and Andre Saraiva headed west, they had everyone in LA talking. From the get-go, they weren't set to last long. After a short 6 months, the pop up party "PaulandAndre" closed this weekend. We hope this means their focus will shift to opening Le Baron in Chinatown. MORE>>>
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»
Okay, fashion hounds, TONIGHT is your night! For the third annual global event founded by Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers, Fashion's Night Out takes over L.A. and this year's seems bigger than the last, with even more events and parties presented by our favorite local boutiques, shoe stores, designer flagships, and hotels. With so many events from Hollywood to Santa Monica and so little time, the options and decision-making can be a tad overwhelming but we're here to help. More»
Nobody works harder to look bad than the modern ultra hipster. From the countless hours spent combing through vintage clothing racks for the absolute tackiest pieces, to days spent in front of a mirror polishing their best bored frowns and hostile scowls, not caring is really hard. And woe to the polished hipster that accidentally breaks character in public, lest even an ounce of actual sincerity comes to the surface and ruins everything, forever. Luckily, Hollywood has set the bar extremely high, so let's take a peek at these Cobra Snake photos from Hemingway's and see if we can find ourselves some new role models (sorry, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but you're old news):
Everyone gets excited to party on a Thursday. It tells the world that you're not constrained to the drudgery of the five-day workweek, or at least that you plan on accomplishing absolutely nothing on Friday. But some people clearly get more excited than others, and based on the amount of wide open mouths in these photos, I'd say most of those people were at Hemingway's last night for Old Fashioned Thursdays.

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.
