How to Win at Wine

Go Go’ers, get ready to rumble.

Wine Riot LA hits Downtown Los Angeles this Saturday and whether you know a Rhone from a Riesling, the revolution wants you.

The world awaits your wineglass with 250 wines from all over the globe, crash courses in which the “textbooks” are sipped, not studied, a “Bubbly Bar” (sparkling wines for your oh-so-sparkling personality), an “only-the-hits, ma’am” DJ, tattoos (don’t expect butterflies), photo booths, Instagram stations, and vintage-inspired postcards to record your “in vino veritas” adventures, mobile apps to record your faves, and hundreds of like-minded drunkards wine enthusiasts.

Choose afternoon Riot 1 or evening Riot 2 for four hours of pours with no actual protest except against the boring and the mundane.

You’ll drink to that.

WINE RIOT LASat, Nov 9, 1- 5 pm OR 7-11 pm; $60 per riot/21+Majestic Halls, 650 S Spring St, DTLA 90014

12 years dreaming....
Dream big

Twelve Years Dreaming

You already know the Create:Fixate events as your afternoon-into-evening immersions into emerging multi-media art, spoken word, and eclectic music, all washed down with cocktails in a vibrant space.

For the non-profit org’s twelfth anniversary, curator/event producer Michelle Berc and the C:F gang literally dream big in DREAMS; graffiti artists and fine art artists collaborate to create large, mural-like paintings in one of the org’s two warehouse spaces.

The intention is to bring down “the walls of the art scene” and if you’ve been to a C:F bash, you know that’s just what will happen.

The creative mash-ups will be finished in time for the Saturday anniversary party, which includes an all-ages afternoon preview (including a supervised Kids Kreativity Zone) before the 21+ all-night-long main event with 25 visual artists and the Audio Lab featuring a diverse group of musical artists.  All of the proceeds benefit C:F’s programs, which encourage at-risk youth to express themselves through creativity.

All of the above and you get to play.

CREATE: FIXATE’S TWELVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY – DREAMSSat, Nov 9, 4-7 pm/all ages/free-$5 suggested donation.  7 pm – 2am/21+/$20 ($15 before 9 pm) —  Lot 613, 613 Imperial St, DTLA 90021
