  • 10. Avoid barraging your date with questions. This isn't a job interview. The best conversations I had were about smelly markers and what kind of drink gives the worst hangover. 9. Avoid weird open-ended questions like "What are your vitals?" "What's your story?" ("Well, I was born on a snowy day in December, it was a breach birth, my mother was in extreme pain...") 8. Don't hit on the speed-date hosts. They are getting...

  • No time to find that special someone? Check out HurryDate, a speed dating service that hosts parties at fun spots around the city. The set-up is pretty typical: you have brief one-on-ones with about a dozen "dates," and a whistle blow indicates it's time to move on to the next potential love connection. Everyone gets a scorecard to mark "yes" or "no" after each date's name, you enter that info. in the HurryDate website,...

  • While we were secretly hoping for some crazy antics, Lady Sovereign was on her game when she hit the stage at Avalon on Friday. She didn't come out until close to 1AM, but multiple cocktails made the time fly right by. Unfortunately, they also made our camera fly right out of our hands and malfunction. We just got pics from a friendly photag also covering the show. Avalon's Club 82 hosted some great DJs...

  • London-born rapper Lady Sovereign will bust her rhymes this Friday, June 22nd at Avalon's Club 82. It's a "Live PA Performance," so this should be a one-woman show, with no pre-recorded tracks. Lady Sov is known by some as the female Eminem (Feminem?) and has been opening for Gwen Stefani on her "Sweet Escape" Tour. She's gained some notoriety for onstage antics- at a show in New York she told the crowd to "Fuck...

  • If you've lived in L.A. for more than two years and haven't experienced wine country, it's time to take the trip. We finally did, making the three-hour trek to Paso Robles, and now can't believe we'd put it off this long. Paso Robles, known for fabulous reds, has over 170 wineries and is the most spacious wine region in California (610,000 acres). Sounds overwhelming, but the town is really easy to get around, even...
