Drink: Los Angeles (Created by the folks behind the hit book Eat: Los Angeles) is the essential pocket guide to the best pubs, cocktail bars, coffeehouses, wine bars, dive bars, tea houses, juice cafes, boba spots, karaoke bars, and neighborhood watering holes across LA. Organized by region, this nifty little book gives the Why, What, and Who for every worthy beverage-lover’s spot across the city, from Long Beach to Encino, Venice to South Pasadena, Beverly Hills to Boyle Heights. And at just $15, it’s a great gift for thirsty Angelenos.
100 Not So Famous Views of L.A. is the gorgeous art book by artist Barbara Thomason who roamed her beloved Los Angeles, seeking the vistas, nooks, bridges, signs, streets, and landmarks that most captivated her. Inspired by Hiroshige’s acclaimed print series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, this grand project resulted in the 100 paintings reproduced in this gorgeous hardcover book. Intimate, often recognizable, and sometimes unexpected, Thomason’s paintings capture the vibrant L.A., the quirky L.A., the beautiful L.A.—the essential L.A.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get the must-have guidebook, meet great people, and get your drink on!
