Oh….. do I love this time of year. Sun is always shining. The locals tend to mellow out a bit more than usual and a plethora of summer and nightlife activities present themselves in a way not like anywhere else in the States. Here are four things I think you should do!
1) Our dear friend, Jack Appleford, reads from his opus “101 Dirty Hot Hotel Stories”. If you ever had wondered what crazy stories a hotel concierge has, this book is for you. The reading takes place at the Travelers Bookcase(8375 West 3rd street, Los Angeles CA 90048 323-655-0575) on Friday July 20th. Snacks and Drinks will also be available.
