LA WINE RIOT

WHAT: Not so much a riot, as a booze-filled feast, Wine Riot hits downtown LA for its second installment this weekend. Created by Second Glass, Wine Riot is an all access pass to hundreds upon hundreds of wines. Fueling your night of conquest is a tireless DJ, photo booth, temporary tattoos, and a few thousand of your closest friends and winos. The best part is, aside from the, ahem, “tastings, ”Second Glass has made an app that tracks your favorite wines and shows you where to buy them later. Just be sure to keep your Sunday morning clear, ‘cause, let’s face it, you’re never going to be able to pull off that morning jog you promised yourself. | more info
WHEN: Saturday, November 9th 1-5pm, or 6-11 pm
WHERE: Majestic Halls | 650 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014

THE HESBY PRESENTS: THE NOHO DOWN

WHAT: Tired of your overpriced loft? Our city’s notoriously difficult rental situation has left many an Angeleno jaded in pursuit of the perfect abode. After all, it’s not easy to meet the myriad requirements including satisfactory distance from your borderline-insane-ex-squeeze and proximity to work. But rest your weary head because there’s a rumor going ’round that the Valley is the new Highland Park and now has sidewalks! But wait, there’s more: NoHo is now home to the Hesby, the newest in artfully-designed living spaces for the creative who seeks a stylish home to match their lifestyle. Scope out the spot, i.e. party with us with a hosted bar provided by Deep Eddy Vodka and PBR, live music, a photobooth, giveaways and more. RSVP here. | more info
WHEN: Saturday, November 9th, 1 – 4pm
WHERE: The Hesby | 5031 Fair Ave. North Hollywood, CA 91601

DIANNA MOLZAN OPENING

WHAT: Former Rogue Wave Artist and fellow Los Angeleno, Dianna Molzan opens a new exhibit in Hollywood this Sunday, November 10th. Molzan is known for deconstructing and rebuilding her canvases into wholly original forms that experiment with the painting surface to become sculptural in their presentation. Celebrated in solo exhibitions at The Whitney, The Hammer, and ICA Boston, we’re totes getting excited for Sunday night. (Guess Homeland will have to wait). | more info
WHEN: Sunday, November 10th
WHERE: OVERDUIN AND KITE | 6693 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028

M.I.A AT THE BELASCO

WHAT: “Live fast, die young, bad girls do it well,” is such a more appealing alternative to YOLO, and leave it up to English-Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A. to win that category of who alliterates the “Fuck it, I’m down,” moniker of today’s youth. Not to say we promote extreme forms of bad-assery, but maybe we should let bad girl M.I.A. do the rapping for us. Catch her two-night appearance at the Belasco Theatre next week, but before you go, make sure you check out her newest release, “Matangi” to get familiar with the bad girl’s newest digs. | more info
WHEN: Monday, November 11th, 8pm
WHERE: The Belasco Theatre | 1050 South Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015
