Karen Young

Of all the cities and suburbs throughout Los Angeles, West Hollywood can rightfully be named the most prominent area for brunch—and most definitely, the perfect place for a boozy brunch. The city limit extends as far east as La Brea and as far west as Doheny, with Beverly and Sunset Boulevards to the north and south.

For this brunch list, we’re sticking to a more condensed area affectionately called WeHo, with a list of ten restaurants that provide just a taste of what’s available—ranging from rooftops to southern comfort to a drag queen brunch. Cheers!

Venice Beach is patterned after Venice, Italy, and both places have a system of canals. That said, you wouldn’t find nearly as many skaters, street art, or palm trees in the Italian city. Venice Beach has developed four different zones that all have their draws, including trendy Abbot Kinney, funky Oceanfront Walk, a section south of the canals by Marina del Rey, and an increasingly vital stretch of long-gritty Lincoln Boulevard. Discover five of Venice’s best dishes that cover different cuisines and span the key neighborhoods.

The Guide to Earth Day Events in Los Angeles

Discover Los Angeles

The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970 and activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life. Those peaceful demonstrations across the country are widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

The theme for Earth Day 2018 is End Plastic Pollution. In Los Angeles and around the world, Earth Day participants will be marching, signing petitions, planting trees, and cleaning up beaches and roads. Read on for Earth Day events in L.A. taking place on or near Sunday, April 22.

Sip and Shop at Los Angeles Wine Stores

Wine tastings seem to be the new happy hour, with the addition of trivia and knowledge thrown in for good measure. Tastings can even be found at grocery stores, such as select Gelson’s, Whole Foods, and the Trader Joes on La Brea for free or nominal fees. Wine shops like the independent K & L Wine Merchants in Hollywood and The Wine House in West L.A., or corporate spots such as Total Wine also offer tastings. Some of the most interesting tastings are held at small, boutique wine shops, often located in strip malls or hidden in places you least expect, with eclectic food choices that often differ from the basic crackers and cheese.

To mix up your wine game with a new take on tastings, here are wine stores across Los Angeles with a wide range of vibes and personalities, from elegant French, to earthy Mediterranean, to boutique sustainable, organic, biodynamic, and natural wines.
