We know how to kick back...Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presethttp://instagram.com/p/mcdET6hgpB/This weekend I was in charge of live visual production at Insomniac's We Are NRG event in San Bernardino. I got to run stage visuals in front of thousands. –Whoopi (Twitter|Instagram)http://instagram.com/p/mbKDfXmt7j/http://instagram.com/p/mbehqpGt8p/This weekend was all about food trucks! On Friday I went to first Friday's in Venice and had some bomb fried brussels sprouts lathered in smoked ranch. On Saturday I continued the food fest at Taco Madness 2014 where Frida's Mexican cuisine hit the spot with their amazing tacos. It was a wonderful celebration of Los Angeles culture that culminated with the announcement for the winner of the online tournament of Taco Madness 2014, El Coraloense, as well as the judges pick for “Best in Show” taco award Carnitas El Momo, presented by premier sponsor Groupon along with a cash prize! –Emily (Twitter|Instagram)unnamed-2Spent the weekend trying to figure out what the heck CicLAvia was and why I wasn't there. Also got to check out Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Oh and also Game of Thrones season premiere, duh. #HailHydra –Allenmad_men_season_7_posterIn preparation for the seventh and final season premiere of Mad Men I started the marathon to finish season six. –Gabil (Twitter|Instagram)unnamed-1I finally had the chance to sit for six consecutive hours to watch HBO's Girls and it was epic. –Kristen (Twitter|Instagram)imageThis weekend, I was a little under the weather but I managed to get hooked to HBO's GIRLS! Such a good show, I'm addicted! —Bree (Twitter|Instagram)kyle whiskey blog 1kyle whiskey blog 2kyle whiskey blog 3kyle whiskey blog 4Friday night, I attended a private tasting event for Johnnie Walker in Venice. To me, it was one of the best tastemaker events I have been to. From the setup, the decor, the history of the brand, and everything else, it was very well planned. The US Brand Ambassador did a presentation on the history of the Walker family, as well as the specific differences between each of their signature brands. We got to taste everything from their new "Double Black" to the top level "Blue" label. I feel like I learned so much of about Johnnie Walker and what tastes good — who knows, maybe I'll save up and buy a blue label bottle one of these days. –Kyle (Twitter|Instagram)http://instagram.com/p/mbjP-LjK-W/Saturday I went to the James Turrell exhibit at LACMA which blew my mind — definitely changed the way I look at colors and light, and how I think about visual perception. Stopped by a friend's place afterwards for dank tacos, tunes, and Monopoly Deal. Sunday I pigged out at Serving Spoon (fried chicken breakfast special), checked out the Melrose Trading Post and shopped for spring clothes on Melrose/Fairfax. Finished the day off with amazing shrimp ceviche at Mariscos Chente. —Diana (Twitter|Instagram)
