HOT SPOT: PERUVIAN WHISKEY BAR, BRILLIANTSHINE

Santa Monica just got more delicious with Brilliantshine, a straight up whiskey bar with Peruvian-inspired bar food delectables. Yeah, you heard right. The chef, Richie Lopez was the former executive chef of Paiche so it all should makes sense.

Moving on to drinks hand crafted by Soigné Group’s Julian Cox and Josh Goldman: all inspired by Cox’s travels to Paris, Spain, Italy, PERU, Marinique and London. Classic meets modern. Well done, gents.

Check this beast out, will you? The most likely LA CANVAS spotting should be between 9am-2:30pm during their weekend brunch.

VIA Laist.

 

PREVIEW: BRANDED ARTS X BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF SANTA MONICA BENEFIT

For the last three years, Santa Monica-based Branded Arts made it their mission to transform Culver City and other parts of Los Angeles into something of a city-wide gallery through curating and producing public mural projects. The large-scale art exhibitions, featuring prolific and rising artists both LA-based and internationally, have given life to the city’s local properties by branding developments, youth centers, recreation centers and schools with inspirational messages and positive imagery throughout the community.


But the contributions don’t stop there. Branded Arts is hosting another arts and music-driven event to benefit the Boys & Girl Clubs of Santa Monica featuring works from over 50 different artists and a special DJ set from Nickelodeon transfer slash Wildin’ Out host, Nick Cannon.

The artist line-up is no joke either; just to do a real quick run-down, the likes of Pixel Pancho, Cryptik, Saber, Steven Daily, NDSLA, Olivia Faze, Surge, Tracy Tubera, Craft, Angelina Christina, Adam Ward, Ross Morrison, and Mad Steez are just a few of the 50+ artists who will be participating.
