Where to find hard seltzer slushies at Southern California breweries

As Katie McGregor and her friends walked up to the bar at Los Angeles Ale Works brewery in Hawthorne on a recent warm weekend afternoon, she ignored the beer selections on the menu and instead found an even colder drink to sip on. “I actually don’t drink beer regularly. I’m more of a hard alcohol type of person so this is nice because I can come out with my friends who like to drink beer but I don’t have to drink beer, I have another option,” the Los Angeles native said as she held a mango-flavo...

The celebrity factor in recall elections

Many Californians laughed out loud back in 1998, when Minnesota voters by a wide margin elected longtime professional wrestler and sometime talk show host Jesse Ventura their governor. But almost exactly five years later, those same Californians by a wide margin made longtime movie muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger their governator and then kept him and his cigars in office for seven years. Neither Ventura nor Schwarzenegger had an iota of administrative experience, but both had shown some interes...

Morrison, a classic sports bar, scores big in Burbank and Atwater Village

I grew up in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. Which meant there was no way for me to not have a love of sports hardwired into my internal circuitry. With Yankee Stadium across the street, you spend an inordinate amount of time in the bleacher seats in “The House That Ruth Built.” (I even went there on school field trips. The justification? Baseball is all about the math. I learned to calculate batting averages long before I studied long division) Which is why I’m drawn, like a fan to a Yankee Frank...

Actress Mena Suvari writes of trauma and abuse in new memoir ‘The Great Peace’

Mena Suvari says she has no doubt that her soul-baring memoir “The Great Peace” was important, even necessary, for her to write. But that doesn’t mean she’s not terrified about what people will think when they read about the darkness and despair of her life. In films such as “American Pie” and “American Beauty,” Suvari found fame before she was out of her teens, but she writes she was living a double life — her life offscreen mired in toxic relationships, sexual abuse, and drugs to numb the pain...

Dennis McCarthy: Alaska stole my son, but gave me a great place to visit him

Alaska stole my youngest son this year. Snatched him right out of my home where we had just spent 10 soul-searching months bonding during the coronavirus lockdown. Unfortunately, he was here for 13, the last three months wondering when all this soul searching and bonding with his parents would mercifully end, and he could get on with his life. Who wants to be stuck with their parents? He’s working as a glacier guide in Juneau, and if his Trip Adviser reviews are any indication, doing a great job...
