South Park Flea Market

27 02 2008

I just love flea markets. It reminds me how me and my mom use to go every sunday. This Sunday, South Park Flea Market is letting a limited amount of people in for free. Now just think of the extra cash you will have to find some cool stuff. I just love a deal. There will also be … Phillip Dane interviewed by Angeleno Magazine for the March Issue, DJ Derrick Wize spinning beats that will have you dancing down the ailse, and yummy food to eat as you browse. Also  did I mention there will be free parking. You can’t beat that because everyone knows it’s a bitch to park in L.A

This Sunday March 2, 2008
9am – 4pm

Corner of 8th & Grand
Downtown Los Angeles

MetroMix Party

26 02 2008

Sorry for the long time no write, but I have been bouncing around the UK and Ireland like a bouncy ball. Incase ya’ll have figured it out,I’m on vaction. But don’t think I have forgotten about all of my pretties. Even though my ass is on holiday, I took time out from it to bring you the 411 on L.A’s night scene. So enjoy this bit because there might not be another one till my ass is planted back in the states.

Same Sex and Single in the City

9 02 2008

By Philippa Medearis

The Grammy’s, Yeah yeah, Chinese New Year, Yeah yeah. Hold on, I’m going to be single, AGAIN (?!) for Valentine’s, I hear you scream.

Being single in LA is not as easy as it seems and being single and a lesbian brings two major issues. First, the greatly reduced population who are eligible to be hit on. Next, where are they to be found? So not to light a fire under your pants but this could be the last weekend to cop a date for the big night. And even then, if you manage to score, it begs the question – Does that mean I have to buy a gift for Valentine’s too? If you’re not prepared for that then maybe you should stop reading this blog, stay home, watch re-runs and make popcorn.

 

For those of you brave enough to read on here’s some ideas of where you could meet your next great love:

 

Girl Bar

661 N. Robertson Blvd.,

West Hollywood, CA 90069

www.girlbar.com

Even if you leave alone you’ll be in great spirits after leaving the ‘Comedy and Cocktail’ night, February 8. Before ten no cover, after ten $10. Sign up to the guest list online.

 

 

The Palms doesn’t have anything specifically Valentine related but it’s is has a fun and friendly atmosphere most nights and cheap beer on Wednesdays. To find them go to:

 

8572 Santa Monica Blvd,

West Hollywood, CA 90069

www.thepalmsbar.com

 

Cover $5 after nine.

 

 

For something more low key without the flashing lights and impending hangover try the South Park flea market. No relation to the cartoon, as far as I know. For this one you’ll have to wear your gaydar to sift through the eclectic collection of culture and art. Included in the mix is music and food – something for the soul, something for the stomach. Make it a date, and bring the kids:

 

8th and Grand

Downtown Los Angeles

www.southparkfleamarket.com

Every Sunday 9am – 4pm

$2.00 ($1.00 with Flyer or ad) Students w/ ID, kids under 12 & Seniors Free

 

 

Have fun! And for those of you who got lucky, stay tuned to read cheap gift ideas to buy the one you don’t really love!

 





Alternative Superbowl Fun

Alternative Superbowl Fun

By Philippa Medearis

If the Superbowl bowls you over with boredom, don’t fret, there are thousands like you, women and children first and there’s probably a few guys scattered around too.

Beer and pizza doesn’t cut the ice bucket for us all, so for the ‘Lets Go Out and Celebrate the End of the Football Season Fans’ there’s still a full choice of activities; from art and culture to dining (avoid the sports bars obviously who will probably be airing the Superbowl) and of course Venice beach is always open.

This event ends Feb 11, So this is your last week to see the man who made Louis Vuitton supercool.
