5 Things To Do In LA This Week: 9.29-10.5

Monday, September 29

Blue Bottle Capuccino

It’s National Coffee Day. Treat Yoself With Some Fancy Coffee. | Blue Bottle, Venice

In order too celebrate this joyous day properly, my suggestion for you is to head to your nearest Blue Bottle – much like my coffee counterparts I too am an East Bay Area transplant, and I have to say, no biased bull… Blue Bottle makes the smoothest, tastiest, coffee in California. I realize dem might be fightin’ words to some, but I stand behind the bottle that is blue. This past April Blue Bottle took over the old Handsome Coffee Roasters spot Downtown in the Arts District, but as of last week or so, they’ve opened up their SECOND LA location in Venice – right on Abbot Kinney. Yay the Intelligentsia overflow will have somewhere else to go! I also couldn’t be anymore thrilled to report that Blue Bottle has plans to open up a Culver City location in 2015. Let’s hope they means like January2015

DBA Writers Room Flyer

The Writers Room – This Week’s Special Guest: Mark Leibovich | DBA Hollywood

“Love the written word but hate the puffed-up pretension of literary events? Enter The Writer’s Room with Reza Aslan, a refreshing take on the typically staid literary event. Expect live music, audience participation and a few too many drinks being consumed — in other words: a good party.” – DBAhollywood.com

Well there you have it. Interesting to think literary chats could be described as “a good party” but I have a feeling that with professional partiers “DBA” behind the idea, there’s probably truth in those words. This week come hang with New York Times Chief National Correspondent (woah) Mark Liebovich and hear him chat about his #1 New York best times seller book, “This Town”. More info/times/and tickets here.

LA's first Cat Cafe

LA’s Very First “Cat Cafe” | Chinatown: Far East Plaza

Ask and you shall receive you Japan jealous, crazy cat lovers you! LA is officially hosting a cat cafe pop up in Chinatown this Thursday and it will be open for kitty business until Sunday October 5. LA Weekly reports here that Carlos Wong, the guy behind the venture, has partnered with Chinatown BID and Best Friends LA (one of our favorite local organizations who are setting a great example by identifying themselves as a no-kill shelter) to bring plenty of kitties for loving and petting while you sip on a beverage or what have you. The best part? If you find that you’ve managed to fall in love with one of the fur babies, you can adopt him/her and take them home with you! Ohhhh it’s going to be so great. SO GREAT.

Chinatown: Far East Plaza, 727 N. Broadway, Chinatown

Front Porch Cinema & Eat See Hear Presents Frozen | Santa Monica Pier

We start the fun this Friday with a screening of the latest family fav, Frozen – Get more info and the full schedule here and be sure to RSVP on their Facebook page if you’re in!

Nick Waterhouse | The Mayan

For a white guy from LA, the man knows his rhythm & blues, jazzy, soul music! And to see his show live at a venue like The Mayan? Priceless. Get ready to snap your fingers and tap your feet, because Nick Waterhouse is gonna make the whole room move.  Get your tickets here.

DTLA: Mayan Theater 1038 S. Hill St., Los Angeles, CA 90015

Bombay Bicycle Club & MILO GREENE | The Wiltern

Bombay Bicycle Club is awesome but the Milo Greene show is where it’s all at. If you haven’t given this local LA based group a listen, I’m gonna say now would be a good time, but their awe inspiring and energetic live show is your first order of business because I guarantee it’s one you’ll never forget. The quintet, with four lead singers, will draw you in with their incredible harmonies and will leave you mesmerized as you watch them rotate instruments like it ain’t no thang… it’s just not right for 5 people in 1 band to have that much talent.  More info and tickets here.

FREE Coffee at Bustelo Cafe Pop-Up | Cahuenga Blvd

Correct, thats FREE coffee for all, this Friday October 3rd through Sunday October 5th at Bustelo’s little pop-up shop off Cahuenga! They’ll be open and serving beverages from 8am – 8pm everyday and feel free to stick around for the free wifi and live music they’ll be offering as well. I don’t know if Butstelo’s realizes how confused all the Angelenos are going to be by their kindness, but if there’s one thing I do know, it’s that everyone likes “free”.

Hollywood: 1540 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

Pistola Is OPEN! | Third Street

If you’re feelin fancy and have an itch to try something new, like last week new, get a reservation at 3rd streets latest and greatest: Pistola. They’ve taken over the old AOC spot and have transformed it into a gorgeous, classy little Italian Steakouse, one I personally cannot WAIT to try.
