Music Monday: All Scene Eye Co-Presents Kind Hearts and Coronets Every Friday in June in The Backroom at Casey’s

April 15th, 2013 — 12:54pm

All Scene Eye Co-Presents The orchestra pop band of quirkiness who call themselves Kind Hearts and Coronets will be live in The Backroom at Casey’s every Friday in June. We are so happy to have them grace us with their debut and we could not be happier. Well maybe a bit happier with a Jameson pickle back in our hand but that is beside the point. Kind Hearts and Coronets are an amazing band that make beautiful noise. Come and enjoy wonderful music with no cover.

“The Varnish: Cocktails in LA” 4/12/13 –

In the back of a dining room in Cole’s French Dip downtown, an unmarked door leads into the celebrated LA cocktail bar the Varnish.

The bar has a smokey, old-timey atmosphere, in the speakeasy style. Its beautiful décor—lots of tile and brass, and low, yellow lighting—recall an LA of ages long past.

Eric Alperin, co-owner and chief bartender of the Varnish, is credited as one of the forefathers of the burgeoning mixology movement in Los Angeles. Speakeasies with complex drink menus seem to be popping up everywhere, but Alperin is no follower. He’s truly an OG in the mixology game. Read more!
