halloween 2010: los angeles

Halloween and All Hallow’s Eve aren’t average days in LA—they’re as sacred as Mardi Gras in New Orleans and there are more than one way to celebrate:

What: West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval
Where: West Hollywood
When: Sunday, October 31

Multiple stages will feature musical acts, circus arts—but this year’s special feature is a tribute to the Rocky Horror Picture Show to celebrate its 35th anniversary.

What: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Where: The Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA
When: Sunday, October 31

Looking for something a little more low-key? Catch John Barrymore in this silent classic—with accompanying music performed on a pipe organ.

What: The Birds, All Hallow’s Eve Eve
Where: Ojai Valley Inn
When: Saturday, October 30
Tickets: $25. in advance

Ojai Valley Inn is the perfect place to watch ‘The Birds’, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic scary movie set in the wild and beautiful Bodega Bay of northern California.

Tippi Hedren, the star of the film, will be stopping by for a Q&A session before the screening. Proceeds from the evening’s ticket sales will help The Shambala Preserve, supported in part by the Roar Foundation which she began in 1983.

Thanks to nicole, west hollywood sales, for contributing the spirit of this submission.

how to: create a branch centerpiece

Entertaining season will be here soon so it’s time to get ready. By hanging a centerpiece over— instead of adding clutter to—the dining table, ample room is left for a clean modern table and unobstructed brunch to dinner conversations.

Select a branch sized to suit your dining space, paint for a high-gloss effect, and add colorful ornaments to trim your ‘tree’. To hang, use natural twine—or extra strong fish-line for a floating effect.

hint: consult a hardware store for the best advice on hanging hardware.

dali: the late work exhibit

What: Pride at the High Party
When: Thursday, October 7, 8:30-11:00 pm
Where
: The High Museum, Atlanta GA
Admission: $15 general and $5 member—each includes one drink ticket
Featuring: DJay McCracken

As we prep for Pride weekend in Hotlanta, join us to experience the Dali: The Late Work exhibit this Thursday evening at the High Museum. The exhibit will be open thru January 9th but we’ll be starting the weekend off right by sipping the cocktail du nuit, Dali-tini’s of course, and kicking back in lounge areas featuring CB2 furniture.

Warhol, Monroe, and Alice Cooper all attested to Dali’s art and personality being larger then life which catapulted him to celebrity status. Attire is as you are—or as your favorite celebrity to enter a celebrity look-alike contest—and don’t miss the surreal photo booth!

recipe: lauren's low carb sweet

Any morning you might mix these ingredients into a bowl and eat with a spoon. But why not surprise everyone by preparing them as a finger food for an office breakfast? Or a light and refreshing dessert?

apples, bite size sliced
Greek yogurt, a dollup on each
raw granola, sprinkled on top

Any variety of apples and granola will work, but the thicker Greek-style yogurt is key to keeping it neat.

Thanks to lauren, CB2 planner for this submission.
