Start celebrating Joe P.'s birthday early! Lina Lecaro (L.A. Weekly's Nightranger) is having a Dive Bar book release party and we're invited!
✯Free party, free tequila, free beer, nibbles, karaoke, drunk (or sober) discussion. Here's how Lina put it: Shameless self-promotion alert: If you saw the L.A. Weekly "Happy Hours" issue a couple of weeks ago, you got a sampling from our new tome,
L.A.'s Best Dive Bars — Drinking & Diving in the City of Angels (LG Publishing), a collection of more than 100 of the city's most captivatingly crusty, character-filled cocktail caves. Last Friday, all the sketchy treks, drunk dude come-ons and merciless hangovers became worth it when we put pen to paperback and partied with pals to celebrate our enduring liver (and, however hokey it sounds, our life in nightlife) at the book signing during the first eve of the Weekly's L.A. Weekend. Missed it? Fret not. We invite you all to come and party with us once more, at our next and final (free) signing soiree, at
Wacko/La Luz de Jesus Gallery on Thursday, June 10 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. Four words:
There will be booze. More info: ✯ All ages (start 'em young I say). Lil Cadillac will be there. ✯ Same night as Artwalk. Hit this up first if you're going Downtown. ✯Same night as Dan Epstein's reading at Stories. Hit both and it's a bonafide book crawl. We'll probably be going to his after-party at The Short Stop (a bar in my book) later.
