The Santa Monica Zombie Crawl returns for its third year, and will bring out the undead on Halloween night for a chilling bar crawl in the heart of the city. Starting on the Santa Monica Pier, crawlers will moan and growl their way through the city for spooky drink and food specials all night with the official wristband. Participating locations include Rusty’s Surf Ranch, Big Dean’s Oceanfront Cafe, Del Frisco’s Grille, Ye Olde King’s Head, Cabo Cantina, Barney’s Beanery, and West 4th/Jane.

Crawlers will have access to $4 drafts, $5 wells, and $5 shots at participating locations, and entrance into the Official Zombie After Party at Wokcano. Participants must follow specific Zombie Crawl rules to get through the streets: keep an authentic zombie appearance, keep arms extended outward, drag a limb and deliver vicious snarls, and moans without talking. Makeup artists from Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy will be on-site at the starting location to assist with the zombie-fying process.

Beach Nation

June 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

Imagine a day at the beach without the hassle of getting there. Sinking your feet in the sand, the sun in your face, a breeze in the air, your favorite drink in hand, a selection of healthy snacks just steps away. Now imagine all of this just down the street in the middle of West Hollywood. A beach in the middle of the city? Welcome to Beach Nation.

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 6.03.36 PM

Beach Nation is the new outdoor beach-style cafe on Santa Monica Boulevard, just blocks from Beverly Hills, Melrose, and the Sunset Strip. The spacious deck is an oasis in the middle of the city: waving palm trees, rustling sea grasses… a stylish beach cafe vibe created by famed designer Thomas Schoos. Plus a huge sand box right in the middle of the action — take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes!

Summer never ends at Beach Nation. Perfect for all occasions and seasons, fit “a day at the beach” into your busy schedule, between errands, classes or business meetings — without having to trek all the way to the coast!

Designed and created by internationally acclaimed hospitality designer Thomas Schoos (Herringbone at the Mondrian LA, The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, Tao in New York and Las Vegas) Beach Nation is the result of a vision Schoos had to bring some of his favorite beach experiences to his own neighborhood in Los Angeles. The eclectic furniture and design adds a modern twist to the traditional beach bungalow vibe, giving the laid-back California lifestyle a progressive new attitude.

The Asian Box is a restaurant that bridges the gap between fast casual and your favorite neighborhood joint. A place where you can stop by anytime with friends or family for an incredible meal at an incredible price. All responsibly raised, farmed, and made.

asian-box-logo

The Box was created by FK Restaurants & Hospitality CEO Frank Klein who is a veteran of the national restaurant scene. Frank loves Vietnamese food because he feels that freshly prepared it is the most flavorful cuisine with greatly diverse flavors. As CEO Frank insists, The Box is always using fresh and sustainably raised and grown products.

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 10.47.19 AM

Frank brought his business partner Chad Newton on as the Culinary Director for The Box. Chad’s passion for quality ingredients and creating bridges to the local farmers and vendors makes him an integral part of the direction of The Box.

Menu-Slide

Executive Chef Grace Nguyen was raised in a traditional Vietnamese family where she began cooking with her grandmother at an early age. She brings authentic recipes and techniques coupled with a keen eye and palate for quality ingredients. Gracie worked with some of the finest chefs in the country and her recent work with Charles Phan at his world-famous Slanted Door and Bush Street OTD restaurants in San Francisco brought her home to her cooking roots.

Staying true to the ingredients and style of authentic Asian street food allows them to offer fresh made, tasty, and healthy food that’s lower in sodium and fat while maintaining the craveable flavors that make this food so memorable.

Asian street stalls in a way were the first sustainable restaurants. The proprietors purchased everything they needed fresh for the day and pushed their carts to the market with the day’s bounty. They would sell everything they made and then started again the next day. Just like the Asian Box … Real Food. Fast.
