The second annual Negroni Week is taking place across the country and around the world from June 2-8, 2014. During Negroni Week, participating bars - over 1,200 as this post goes live - are mixing up Negronis and donating at least $1 from each cocktail sold to a charity of their choice. Campari has announced that it will donate $10,000 to the qualified charity of the bar or restaurant that raises the most money during this year’s Negroni Week.
Besides the classic Negroni - made with gin, Campari, sweet vermouth - imbibers can look forward to variations like the Negroni No. 9 at Rivera, and special events like the Negroni Soirée, taking place at Harlowe on Tuesday, June 3.
Following are just a few of the dozens of participating bars and restaurants in Los Angeles. Check the Negroni Week website for a complete list of participating bars, then follow the social media action via Imbibe Magazine’s Twitter and Instagram feeds, and the #NegroniWeek hashtag. Cheers!
Silver Lake is one of L.A.'s most featured neighborhoods, named after one of two reservoirs around which it was drawn. Sunset Junction, Silver Lake's urban center, is located at the intersection of Santa Monica and Sunset Boulevards, two main L.A. streets that otherwise run parallel all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Until the mid-1950s, the Junction served as the site of the branching of two inter-urban railway lines. The neighborhood was also home to Walt Disney's first large studio from 1925 to 1939, located at Hyperion Avenue and Griffith Park Boulevard. Since then, the area has become renowned as a community that’s continuously in flux, home to a population that is diverse even by Los Angeles County's multicultural standards. Despite all the recent Silver Lake media coverage, it can still be hard to find the lesser known places worth visiting. Read on to discover Silver Lake’s must-see hidden gems.
