    Late Spring/Summer Movies @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery
    Hollywood Forever Cemetery Screenings - Movies | Screening in Los Angeles.
    Nov 4, 2012
    "This is one of the most unique nighttime events. Any place where you can picnic and bring your own food and drink (including alcoholic beverages) is already a plus. Add a movie screening and a nice, balmy, Southern California night and you're set. But wait, there's more. It all takes place in an iconic cemetery, full of ornate headstones, dark corners and spooky ambiance. I have also never been to a more crowded, outdoor event. You absolutely have to buy tickets in advance or you don't get to go. Also, we purchased the parking inside the grounds which makes such a big difference. No waiting in the line that wrapped around the block or carrying our delightful picnic seven blocks. Leaving was a little interesting, but well worth it. If you're looking for something a little different and you love classic movies, this is right up your alley." hide

    Lounge / Whiskey Bar
    Seven Grand - Lounge | Whiskey Bar in Los Angeles.
    Nov 4, 2012 Old Fashioneds and Manhattens "I happen to be an old fashioned drinking kind of girl, myself, and there's nothing more disappointing to me than going to a bar and either receiving a blank stare when I order one, or getting a sweet, marashino-overloaded concoction. The beauty of Seven Grand is I can walk up to the bar, tell the bartender I'd like a variation on an old fashioned and I will receive something amazing. You can tell that these drinks are worth the average $10 a glass because of the time the bartenders take to craft these cocktails. You can stand and watch; there's a real art to it. And when it's all said and done, the perfectly boozey, slightly sweet bourbon old fashioned I hold in my hand is completely worth it. And there may be a splash of amaretto in there for some excitement. You never know, but I trust this whiskey bar. The copious amount of mounted animal heads is a nice addition too. Play some, pool, listen to some music and feel really rustic with your stomach-warming glass of your choosing." hide

  • Getty Center

    Museum
    Getty Center - Museum in Los Angeles.
    Nov 4, 2012 In a League of Its Own "The first time I visited the Getty was after I had graduated college. I've lived in San Diego my entire life, so close, but had never seemed to get myself up there. It was incredible and I'm so glad I finally went. Naturally sitting up on a glorious hill already sets the Getty apart from its comrades in the artistic world. It makes it special, allowing you breathtaking views and gorgeous manufactured gardens to roam as you sit outside. When I visit museums I generally don't go to main exhibitions because they cost too much money but the Getty makes art readily available. Parking may be $15--which if you stay for an entire day and have a few people in your car isn't a tragedy--but general admission and special exhibits are absolutely free. For me that's one of the biggest draws for this museum. Nothing is off limits and you can have an entire day without stressing about the cost. If you've never been, now is your chance, The Getty is practically beckoning to you." hide
