A New, Fun and Easy Way to Have a Night Out in L.A.

February 27, 2019 by Sponsored Post


The following is a sponsored collaboration between Nasstive Entertainment and We Like L.A.

If you haven’t hung out in DTLA in awhile, you’re missing what’s become one of the premier nightlife destinations in all of Los Angeles. With new bars and clubs emerging and old favorites undergoing massive renovations, there’s lots to experience. So how do you learn about the hottest spots and get the most out of a night in Downtown? Why not check out a Los Angeles Club Crawl.

A Los Angeles Club Crawl is the perfect way to hit up multiple venues all in one night, whether you’re a local looking to explore, planning a special occasion like a bachelorette party or birthday, or just need to find a cool way to entertain some out-of-town visitors.

The typical club crawl features between 30 to 60 guests, with the group hitting up four different venues for a cost of $25 (and that includes a free welcome shot at the first location!). All club fees and cover charges are included with your ticket, and you’ll never have to wait to get in the next bar. No lines. No hassles. Just a perfect night out hanging with friends and meeting some cool new people. There are even special holiday bar crawl events for Halloween, St Patrick’s Day, and Cinco De Mayo, with massive turnouts often between 300 to 500 people.

Los Angeles Club Crawl is owned and operated by Nasstive Entertainment, which has been running club crawl events in SoCal for over a decade. Club Crawl hosts make your entire experience stress-free, and each evening’s group is always a great blend of tourists, locals and people looking to meet others. And even if you’re new in town and you’re thinking about heading out solo—don’t be shy—you will be sure to make some wonderful new friends on a Los Angeles Club Crawl.

For more information, and to purchase a ticket for an upcoming club crawl, visit losangelesclubcrawl.com.

We Had a Blast Creating New Experiences With Joymode

October 26, 2018 by Sponsored Post

* * * This post is a sponsored collaboration between Joymode and We Like L.A. * * * 

We Like L.A. has always been about seeking out new experiences so we can share them with our readers, but the reality is some experiences cost more than others. Specifically, there are certain activities you simply can’t do without the gear, and sometimes that gear comes with a daunting sticker price.

Want to go camping? Better own a tent and all the sleepover essentials. Going to kayak on the L.A. River? Better have that kayak ready. Maybe it’s as simple as hosting a karaoke night at your apartment. Ok, but who owns a karaoke setup?

Some items are, to be honest, cost prohibitive. We’ll never go kayaking enough to make owning a kayak worth it. Moreover, where are we going to put that thing?

That’s what makes a new service like Joymode so intriguing.

Joymode’s premise is simple: They have a warehouse of goodies to choose from, which they’ll rent to you for a set number of days at a fixed cost. The best part is they drop it off right to your door, then pick it up when you ask them to. No fuss, no muss.

A few months back Joymode contacted us to see if we’d be interested in trying out their service. Well… duh, of course!

To get things off started we envisioned a couple of unique scenarios that we thought might  be fun to try out. First, We Like L.A. co-founder Brian teamed up with his best friend Milo (who happens to be a canine) to rent a dog agility course and make a morning of it at the local park. Milo killed it on the obstacle course, and Brian could barely keep up. They had a blast.

Next, co-founder Christina hosted her best friend Jenny for a movie night watching the 2016 Korean horror film Train to Busan. The movie was terrifying, made all the more impactful by the home theater speaker that was included with the projector and screen. The rental even came with a move theater style popcorn maker (very nice touch!).

Both the dog agility course and the home movie theater worked out quite well. But those two items are just scratching the surface of Joymode’s inventory. You could reserve a VR gaming system, a backyard BBQ, novelty size board games for parties, paddle boards for a beach day, picnic packs for the Hollywood Bowl, and much, much more, all for a low monthly membership fee of $29.

All in all, the risk is low, and the rewards are only the limit of your imagination.

So go create some unique experiences for yourself! Check out Joymode today.

The Inner Circle’s ‘Autumn Escapade’ Promises a Night of Flirty Fun for L.A. Singles

October 26, 2018 by Sponsored Post

* * * The following is a #sponsored collaboration between The Inner Circle and We Like L.A. * * * 

Close up of a happy young couple enjoying city life.

Have you heard about The Inner Circle? It’s a hyper-selective dating app that connects like-minded, ambitious and attractive singles through a combination of digital intros and real-life meet-ups. And this November 16th The Inner Circle is bringing an awesome event to Los Angeles that locals won’t want to miss.

They’re calling it an Autumn Escapade and the goal for the evening is simple: Bring a group of intriguing Angelenos together for a night full of flirty fun and delicious encounters (gastronomic and otherwise!). Picture a French parlour-style décor layered with jazzy melodies at one of our city’s most exclusive tasting rooms. A few fine vintages and the well-dressed crowd set the tone for honest conversation, and with any luck, some genuine connection. This is what The Inner Circle is all about.

The app is based on a premise that people with similar backgrounds and interests are more likely to hit it off. And to make this happen member profiles are personally vetted and approved by a real-life human curator. That means the “creep factor” that comes attached to some other dating apps goes down significantly. It also means that the odds something really special happens go up exponentially.

So why not take a chance?

The Inner Circle’s Autumn Escapade takes place on November 16 from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Each ticket includes entrance, one drink upon arrival, plus cheese and charcuterie boards.

You can sign up for The Inner Circle here.

dOGUMENTA is America’s First Art Exhibition FOR Dogs

September 4, 2018 by Sponsored Post

* * * This post is a sponsored collaboration between Arts Brookfield and We Like L.A. * * *

America’s first art exhibition for dogs, dOGUMENTA comes to Downtown Los Angeles this September for two very special weekends of art specifically designed to be experienced by your pooch.

Not by or about dogs, dOGUMENTA is a curated art show FOR dogs, which takes place at FIGat7th on September 14-16 and 21-23 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. And the best part? Admission is FREE!

“After sniffing around the LA art world we dug up a group of amazing artists offering fresh perspectives on the issues and interests of 4-legged patrons,” dOGUMENTA founding curator Jessica Dawson said of the show’s LA iteration. “We can’t wait to unleash a whole new litter of artworks that West Coast culture hounds can explore for themselves.”

Featured artworks by LA-based artists address the canine sensibility through a variety of media—from sound and sculpture to kibble and squeaky toys. Trainers from the Los Angeles Positive Dog Trainer Alliance will be onsite each day of the exhibition to help support dog owners and their pups.

Although admission is free, advance reservations (available via this link) are strongly recommended, as this will guarantee entry. Walk-ins will be welcomed on a first come, first served basis.

For more information on dOGUMENTA, including a list of participating artists and additional activities, and to reserve your ticket, head to this link.

If you plan to attend with your pup please remember it’s one dog per person and that dog must be on a leash. Humans welcome!
