The Walking Answers To: “Where Should We Go Tonight?”

Comments  (3)

Aug 16, 2012 —  In the land of who you know and what have you done for me lately, the LA nightlife scene can often be a little tough to navigate. But it’s our job to help steer you in the right direction, and we couldn’t do that without the assistance of some of the best nightlife writers and bloggers in the city. For every tough door, hidden speakeasy, booming karaoke spot, and dingy dive, there is a writer who is painstakingly jotting down notes and turning public opinion on these meccas of mixology with well-written reviews (or just snarky opinions depending on the blog).

Below are a couple of our favorites though; writers who have scratched, clawed, and name-dropped their ways into every door in tinsel-town. If you’re lucky, you might meet them on the beat, and maybe you’ll be name-dropping them to get into your next hotspot.

    In Kimberly's words:

    “I started writing while I was still modeling by doing an "Ask the Model" column on a popular Men's website. They liked it, and other people started asking me to write for them. I was one of the first writers on board at NiteGuide Magazine in California, and I still cover events, nightlife and interviews for them. After that it was easy to start working for other people. It was a simple transition to nightlife writing since I spent most of my life in Hollywood. Everyone I know is either a model, actress, club owner, club promoter or DJ!”

    In Tamara's words:

    “…There was the time I was out with a guy and we met another couple. We ended up going back to their place which was right across the street. The girl said she wanted me to come with her to try on her clothes in the bedroom. I thought this was a little weird but she was also a model which made it seem somewhat less strange. Once, in the bedroom, I realized what was really going on. She didn't want her boyfriend to know she was doing drugs so she had suggested this rouse [sic] so she could have an excuse to get away from him. So, I had to try on like five different outfits to help her hide the fact that after showing the boys the new clothes, every time we went back into the bedroom to change she would snort god knows what. I started to get really irritated which I think she realized because she offered to let me keep a bunch of the clothes. So at least I got some new designer clothes out of the evening.”

The perks of free drinks and occasional free designer clothes sound pretty sweet to me....as well as the crazy stories racked up along the way :)

Good call on Roger Room Tamara - it's also one of my favorite bars in LA. Helps that I can walk there though.
