First, is Fluorescent Palace. I discovered this website while doing some research for work. I LOVE their artwork! I think some of their pieces would look just fab in my studio apartment. ;) Check out their site and drool a little bit. They are also super generous and donating to one of my upcoming events!
The second is Thrillist LA. Sign up for emails about the latest and greatest in LA... or whatever large city you are near. They seem to have the scoop on restaurants that are just about to open or are brand new... loving that. :)
