Thank you so much to those who came out for our Parker Beam “Promise of Hope” ALS Foundation Benefit. Big Love to all the Seven Grand L.A. crew for working for free and donating their tips. I think they bought the most raffle tickets too. Thank you to Andie Brokaw from Heaven Hill, and all the folks from the ALs Foundation for making it happen. A great time, for a good cause:

Parker Beam’s “Promise of Hope” ALS Foundation

We’re keeping this goodwill flowing. This coming Saturday, November 23rd, at 6p.m. we will be hosting the Whisky & Poetry First Anniversary Bash. Kim Ohonneson met Johnnie the Scot at a 7G whiskey society event, and started the Whisky & Poetry Salon a year ago. They have been lighting up the Downtown Nightlife scene for a year now. We will be tasting and experiencing whisky and poetry from 6pm-9pm, to celebrate this wonderful new tradition.
