I'm Gonna Turn This Country Pink

I’m Gonna Turn This Country Pink

I don’t usually date.  In fact, let’s just round down and say, “I never date.”  To date means to go on a series of dates, to be strung together on a string of pearls known as the beginning of a relationship.  My string of pearls sucks.  I don’t count my prior attempts in the past...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On: "Kentucky Bubblebath"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On: “Kentucky Bubblebath”

Tonight marks the Twitteringly anticipated re-opening of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Screenings.  Over here in LA, you can feel the collective squirm build up in us over the past few months, waiting for day.  For LA movie people, the first day of Hollywood Forever is the official start of Summer. And hotchachacha, do they have...

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: The 5-Rule Mario Bros. Drinking Game

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: The 5-Rule Mario Bros. Drinking Game

The “1-Up” AKA “Super Mario Bros. Shot” is a half shot of Midori melon liqueur and a half shot of Malibu Rum.  Got this from the fabulous Drunken Moogle. Not a barn burner, but damn is it fun on a hot pre-summer day like today where all I want to do is play retro video...
Pie Porn

Pie Porn

The Kate Winslet buoyed HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce” just wrapped up it’s laborious five hours. She did her best, it had great production values (production designers! Is there any Hollywood workhorse that’s had more consistent results?), but in the end, the story did not justify it’s runtime. So, sadly, I don’t think I got much...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Johnnie Red"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Johnnie Red”

Of all of Johnnie Walker’s Scotch Whiskeys, Red is the cheapest, and considered to be the least fine of the batch.  I am starting today’s “Drink On” with Red because I quite enjoy a glass of Red.  It’s fiery, it burns and when I drink Black, I feel like it’s a semi-special occasion. However, that’s...
Two Front Teeth

Two Front Teeth

On the evening of May 12, 1956, in the Hollywood Hills, movie star Montgomery Clift was bleeding to death inside his car. Only 8 months previous, James Dean was beheaded in his car.  When Monty heard the news of his contemporary’s death, he was on a cruise ship with torch singer Libby Holman, who later...
Just Off Fountain: "WURSTKUCHE"

Just Off Fountain: “WURSTKUCHE”

Downtown L.A. has a treasure chest of vibrantly creative ways to be yummy.  Take the German sausage restaurant “Wurstkuche,” a warehouse in a shabby part of Downtown (Psst– there’s no non-shabby part of Downtown).   But that’s the point, isn’t it?  Have one of these smash hits in Hollywood and say hello to a way-too-trendy...
How's Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Spring Ahead"

How’s Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Spring Ahead”

The daylight is longer, and unless you have an iPhone or a stupid work computer, your clocks are all caught up with Daylight Savings Time.  Yes, it is a bitch the day it happens.  All that confusion, plus you lose an hour.  But I welcome it!  It’s all about the electrical Spring/early Summer moment when...
Just Off Fountain: "SHAKY ALIBI" Waffles

Just Off Fountain: “SHAKY ALIBI” Waffles

Belgium’s in Los Angeles at Beverly Blvd & Curson, across the street from the Grove Mall.  If there’s one thing LA excels at in the food department, it’s in cheeky experimentation and hidden gems. That’s right, it’s “Just Waffles!” (jazz hands) at Shaky Alibi coffee bar & wafflerie.  Marcus and I spent Presidents’ Day Monday...

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "The Delicious Sour"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “The Delicious Sour”

William Schmidt wanted to be an individual. Hard for a man named William to be distinguishable, even in the 1890’s.  This is why William went by the moniker William “The Only William” Schmidt. This is just the kind of turn of the (other) century nonsense I love. Schmidt was a connoisseur of Lady Liquor, and...
