RADIO ROOM RETURNS TO THE EDISON

The Most Important Night in Contemporary Cocktail Culture

Downtown Los Angeles is the epicenter of cocktail innovation and The Edison proudly continues to serve this community of talented bartenders.  Radio Room brings the best and brightest of this growing community to share their knowledge and talent at one bar, for one night only.

On Tuesday, February 23, Radio Room returns to The Edison with Joseph Brooke (Santa Monica’s Copa d’Oro Bar [www.copadoro.com]; Winner of national $100,000.00 Best Bartender Contest), Brian Miller (New York City’s groundbreaking Death & Co. Bar [www.deathandcompany.com]), and Erick Castro (Bourbon & Branch Bar, and most recently San Francisco’s RICKHOUSE Bar [www.rickhousebar.com]).   Acclaimed for their own unique vision and distinctive drink profiles, each barman brings to Radio Room menus that include both signature beverages, as well as cocktails created solely for this event. 

Radio Room is noteworthy not only for the stature of the visiting mixologists, but also for the audience that the event draws.  Every leading bartender, bar chef, mixologist, bar owner, and nightlife entrepreneur in southern California is certain to arrive for Radio Room.  The forward thinking creativity of the each visiting bartender is one the line – and they bring their A GAME!  Radio Room has become one of the most significant means of spotlighting contemporary cocktail culture in the United States.

Radio Room also features the extraordinary culinary talent of Matre Ecailler, Chef Christophe Happillon.  Chef Happillon presents an exceptionally luxurious oyster experience, “Meroir: A Sense of the Sea.”  The evening’s specials include freshly shucked oysters, accompanied by Organic Habanera Vodka for two.  As well, live jazz entertainment is offered by The Vagabond Opera throughout the evening.  Please note table service is by reservation only.

NEVE - CHANGING THE WORLD ONE COCKTAIL AT A TIME!

 

Introducing A NIGHT WITH NÉVE 

A Pop Up Bar of Delicious Proportion

Each month, barman Michel Dozois will bring his luxury ice, his talented mixologist friends from around the city and country, and the cutting edge of cocktail creativity to A NIGHT WITH NÉVE.  One month, the event might be hosted by an area restaurant, the next in a discreet alleyway alongside a famous LA Taco Truck, the studio of a local artist, a Hollywood Hills garden patio or perhaps atop the stage of a major opera production.  The location will be announced via LA area food and cocktail blogs, with RSVP’s strictly limited to an intimate number, allowing for up close and personal contact with the bartenders, the specially sourced and curated products, and… the drink.  At the center of each evening will be the ice products of Néve, the single ingredient that will forever change the cocktail as you know it.  Each event scenario will vary, from ‘Social Meet & Greets,’ to ‘Cocktail Preparation & Instruction,’ to ‘Movie Night’ or ‘A Peek Backstage.’

The inaugural NIGHT WITH NEVE will be held at the Charcuterie Bar of Pasadena’s Bar Celona Restaurant.  Attendees and invited guests may RSVP to md@neveice.com. Please note that attendance for the first event will be strictly limited and guests must receive reservation confirmation.  Hors d’ oeuvres and paired bites will be served with each course of cocktail.  The first event will be charged per cocktail, with future event pricing dependent upon location and cocktail production.

HAPPY NEW YEAR (Part Deux!)

sanae & eric at seed 02-1

The vast majority of those that bravely gave voice to a New Year’s Resolution have already abandoned those promises by the third week of the New Year.  As we now enter the second month of 2010, Chef Eric & the kids at SEED Restaurant are at the ready with a helping hand and a sympathetic ear – a second chance to set realistic goals for your life…and, this time, to succeed.   If your goal was to lose weight, eat healthier, find love or find a new career, SEED offers a few helpful insights.  And, best of all, there’s no lectures or preaching; No attempt at converting followers to vegetarianism; No lifestyle changes that doom you to failure and fatigue.  This year, SEED offers a series of classes, daily thoughts and tips, cooking instruction, and special events to assist you in gently, and purposefully, achieving your goals. 

Let the New Year begin – Again!

First, Chef Eric and his wife – holistic/macrobiotic counselor Sanae Suzuki – offer a series of complimentary classes, seminars, and cooking demonstrations.  Scheduled approximately once every two weeks, these classes might cover “Cooking with leftovers,” to “Realizing your life’s goals and dreams,” to “simple substitutions for fast food.” Class schedules are listed on the SEED website and are always posted in the restaurant for upcoming weeks.  Most classes are held at the restaurant’s communal table, although many cooking classes/book signings are scheduled for bookstores and markets throughout Los Angeles over the coming weeks.

Secondly, SEED offers tips for a better life via our blog and our FaceBook page.  These brief, insightful messages appear daily, and might include a cooking tip, an affirmation, a product recommendation, or a joke – all designed to focus the reader, if only for a couple of minutes per day, on achieving small realistic goals. The daily messages will run continuously for sixty days, after which time SEED will host in-house events for all of our followers to discuss successes and failures, and how to move forward productively and positively.

Thirdly, each week Chef Eric and Sanae will give away SEED DINNER FOR TWO’s, personalized copies of the couple’s own cookbooks, complimentary cooking classes, and complimentary counseling sessions to our followers.  Prizes will be awarded via our facebook page, the SEED blog, and via local food bloggers.

Lastly, Chef Eric and Sanae will draw one name each week, with all winners invited to attend the finale to Happy New Year (Part Deux!) – AN EVENING WITH THE CHEFS.  Offered with our compliments to celebrate OUR FIRST BIRTHDAY, guests will dine, mingle through the kitchen, watch cooking demonstrations and enjoy entertainment and readings, and meet leading cookbook authors and lifestyle experts.  And, of course, the topic of conversation will be “Making Small Changes That Matter – The New Year’s Resolutions That Lasted.”

THE EDISON JOINS THE DCPR CLIENT ROSTER! AGAIN!!

edison web 1

THE EDISON RETURNS TO THE DCPR FAMILY!

My previous PR firm had the pleasure of opening The Edison more than two years ago AND DCPR HAS NOW BEEN INVITED BACK!  Selected as one of “the world’s greatest bars,” the Edison remains the quintessential LA night spot.  And, quite frankly, it has no peer – whether in design or night life offerings.  DCPR will be working with The Edison on targeted projects, specifically designed to reclaim the illustrious repuatation that The Edison enjoyed throughout its opening.  Bars, restaurants and nightclubs have come and gone in LA, with some actually atttemping weakend copies of the orignal.  None has come close, nor will those currently in the works.  The Edison remains one of the singular shining lights in downtown Los Angeles’ historic core that has the capacity to attract a wide range of guests from throughout the city.  It is an extraordinary adventure that simply must be experienced to be believed. 

DCPR looks forward to sharing these special events with you over the coming months. 

For information on events soon to arrive at The Edison, please feel free to contact DCPR, or visit The Edison.
