L.A. the Blog: $30 – Drink ‘Till You Puke, Or Something …

Cruising the famous Hollywood Walk of Stars today L.A. the Blog came across an interesting sidewalk advertisement – $30 all you can drink alcohol.  As it turns out they have all you can drink Tuesdays, the rest of the time you pay top dollar.

$30 all you can drink sidewalk advertisementSo for the hardcore alcoholic and barfly out there we suggest you run not walk to this establishment.  They even have a facebook page where you can post pictures of you puking after!!  It is also good to know Jack lives there, except we ourselves have no idea who Jack, Jose or Jim actually are but we keep hearing those names in drinking establishments.

Last we want everyone to appreciate that the sign is tagged … what a great use of negative space.  Oh, and before we forget the place is called Angels & Kings.  At this moment we are considering sponsoring an contest to see who can drink the most, entrance fee will only be $30 and if you win we will feature your photo on L.A. the Blog.

L.A. the Blog: Persecution Takes A Holiday in L.A.

Call it art!  Call it vandalism!  Call it the protest that its name implies, but whatever it is (maybe I should just ask??) these pics circulating online show once again that making a statement requires little else than a few drops of paint and an idea.  L.A. the Blog applauds “Persecution Takes a Holiday In L.A.”:

PS – If you have more pics send them my way!!!

UPDATE:  Added in June 2012 is some more pics from the project.


L.A. the Blog: Papaya King L.A.

While L.A. the Blog is a little late on the scene reporting that Papaya King is opening in Los Angeles, well it is and it will be here this Spring (L.A. Weekly reports in April).  It is located just off Hollywood Boulevard’s main club drag on Wilcox Avenue.  The question remains how late it will be open, but 24-hours a day sounds good.

Not to be confused the Papaya Dog, nor Gray’s Papaya, but yes it is the original chain that opened back 1932.  For a little rumor history, people say that Papaya Dog was started by a former employee of the original Papaya King, and it might be said about Gray’s Papaya too.  All I know is that if the hot dogs have that New York City snap, they will be something unique in Los Angeles.

(This is a side note – if you ever get the chance go to Criff Dog in NYC, it’s worth it just to see the babe hugging the dog, and it’s yum!)

Stay tuned for more updates as they come in …

UPDATE 4/19/13:  Papaya King didn’t last long in Los Angeles, most likely from the crappy service, and is now closed.
