Tonight and beyond…so many ways to celebrate Spring!
Wanderlust bigger than your spring fever travel budget? Alcove and Spring Bar have you covered! Tokyo and the South of France are just a couple of the garden-centric locations you can visit tonight via delish libations at this annual Los Feliz cocktail bash; think Suntory Toki highballs/cherry blossoms and St. Germain cocktails/elderflowers. Or take a trip down the rabbit hole at the Alice in Wonderland-themed tea party, which includes Hendricks gin cocktails and an “Eat Me/Drink Me” shot. Admission is free and so is the spring-themed photo booth. Cocktails can be obtained via tokens at the bar. The first 75 people in attendance get swag like flower crowns and aura photographs; with five drink stations, your aura will definitely read “very, very happy”.
Best way to celebrate Hump Day? Head to Westfield Topanga for the 21+ The Taste of the Valley. Your ticket to this one-stop gourmet stroll unlimited samples of sweet and savory bites from 45+ restaurants (including Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, Tender Greens, Pedalers and A Sweet Bite) plus delish sips from 120 wineries, three dozen spirit purveyors — think high-end tequila, rum, gin and whisk(e)y — and over a dozen microbreweries from California and beyond. Tickets will be more at the door so grab yours today! Wednesday never had it so good….
