5 Ways to Spend a Summer Friday

It’s already mid-July, so at Something Social, we’re looking for hacks to make the most of our favorite season. Firm believers in the Summer Friday policy, we’re eager to share our favorite ways to start your summer weekends early.

Leave Town and Connect With Nature

Sometimes living in LA can feel like you’re a million miles away from nature, but we’re not! A few extra hours per weekend can make a local getaway that much more realistic. Snag some snacks and hit the road for one of our weekend trip locales.

Fave Spots Within Two Hours of LA:

Big Bear

Ojai

Newport Beach

Santa Barbara

Palm Springs

 

Explore a New Neighborhood

When you only have 48 hours of R&R, it can be difficult to muster the motivation to do more than your laundry and grabbing a coffee at your typical spot. Get off your desk, beat the traffic, and head to an area of town you haven’t explored yet. Need a few ideas to get started?

Our Fave Lesser-Explored Spots:

Highland Park

Frogtown

Pasadena

 

Go to A Dodgers Game

Don a ballcap and watch the boys in blue hit some home runs. If you’re an eastsider, making it out to the ballgame might be more realistic than getting all the way to the coast before sundown. Throw on your swag, grab a Doyer Dog, and get the shorts tan you’ve been waiting for all summer. Find the printable Dodgers schedule here.

 

Try Out a New Happy Hour

Working the 9-5 grind can make exploring LA’s extensive Happy Hour offerings difficult. Enter, your Friday half day. This will give you time to freshen up, find parking, and snag a barstool to check out discounted menus that you might not have tried otherwise.

Best spots to sip on the cheap:

Petite Taqueria’s Happy Hour and a Half

Gesso’s Weekday Wine Deals

Little Ruby’s Beer, Wine, and Spritzes deals

 

Take Advantage of Weekday Museum Events

Los Angeles is a hotbed of oft overlooked cultural exhibitions and artsy activities. A number of museums offer free admission and fun events to boost exposure for their programming. Check out one of the events below. You get to drink and brag about how cultured you are on the ‘gram.

The Natural History Museum’s First Fridays

LACMA’s Summer Friday Jazz Nights start at 6pm

Barnsdall Friday Fundraiser Wine Nights hosted by Silverlake Wines

Not Your Average Friday Night

Does waiting in a long line to get into an overcrowded bar where someone is inevitably going to spill their drink on you not sound like an ideal Friday night anymore? We’ve been there, done that, and understand. But just because you’re over the Friday night party scene doesn’t mean you need to give up on your Friday night out just yet. Within the city of Los Angeles (and maybe a bit outside of it), there are a plethora of activities you can do on the weekend to make your social life just as fun, sans the annoying guy at the bar that won’t stop hitting on you.

First Fridays at Griffith Observatory – All Space Considered

On the first Friday of every month, the staff at the Griffith Observatory host a free public program in the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon. Topics range from anything involving astronomy to space science, so make sure you come prepared to be amazed. It’s first come, first serve so make sure you get there with time to spare.

Cooking Class – Eatz

Cooking made easy (for those who may struggle like me). Eatz’s personal cooking classes take the form of a dinner party (see following suggestion for a Friday night), which means you get a hands-on experience with all of the eating included. Your classes include the following: a pre-made appetizer to get you ready to cook, fresh ingredients, wine pairings or cocktails made from scratch, recipes, and culinary tips.

Host a Dinner Party

Want to feel like an adult without the actual effort of adulting? Host a dinner party. It’s the perfect excuse to get all of your friends together, yet getting to stay in the comfort of your own home. Bonus points if you give it a theme (think: Clue) or require your guests to dress as if it’s a black tie affair. For some great recipes, check out The Yellow Table and Rachel Mansfield.

Board Game Night

The same amount of fun as a dinner party, without the commitment of cleaning the dishes after. Gather your friends at your place, their place, or even a coffee shop open late enough and break out the board games. Between Jenga and Sorry, we’re confident this is a great way to spend a Friday night.

Massage at The Now

Open until 10:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, The Now is your haven in Los Angeles for affordable massages without any corners cut. If you’re really looking for the perfect way to relax on a Friday, this is the way to do it.

Bowling

No matter what neighborhood you live in in Los Angeles, it’s safe to assume that there’s a bowling alley somewhat nearby. A quick Google Search will let you know where the closest one is, and soon you’ll be on your way to wearing funky shoes and secretly wishing that they left the bumpers on your lane (or maybe that’s just a wish we have).

Staycations

We’re a big fan of the staycation at Something Social (just check our Instagrams, you’ll probably see at least one of us at a hotel on any given weekend). And with a plethora of hotels in Los Angeles with amazing amenities, it’s hard to stay away. The trick for staycationing the right way? Do it with friends. It’s more cost effective, and laying in a hotel robe with a face mask on is always more fun with a friend right next to you.

The Last Bookstore

Here us out. Open until 11:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, The Last Bookstore is a beacon of hope in a world that no longer saves up their allowance for the Scholastic Book Fairs at school. Not into reading (though we recommend you give our favorite books a try)? That’s okay; they have records too. Grab a friend or go alone; your pick. But either way, let us know what you’re reading or listening to.

Peppermint Club

This isn’t your average Friday night club spot, but how can it be when it was started by a partnership between h.wood Group and Interscope Records? With live music every Tuesdays-Saturdays, a visit to Peppermint Club will most definitely feel like you’re treating yourself.

UCB

See a show at UCB! Right in the heart of Hollywood, the Upright Citizens Brigade offers a variety of shows every night. You’re guaranteed to laugh, smile, and definitely have a better time than if you just sat home.  

Y7

We’ll consider this one the start to your Friday night. Y7 – the yoga studio that adds a rap/hip hop twist to traditional yoga classes – offers a 7:00 pm yoga class on Friday nights! What better way to start your weekend than with a stretch and Drake?

Best Hikes in LA

Los Angeles has a lot to offer, whether you’re looking for happy hour spots, fun things to do during the summer, or purchase-able nature (aka flowers and plants). It’s safe to assume you’ll never really be bored here. But what are you really doing in Los Angeles if not enjoying the nature walks when you’re not stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic? Sometimes you need to escape the city life and take a walk on the wild(life) side. So here are some hikes us at the SSLA team really enjoy taking (when we’re not snapping those grams for you).

Old Zoo

Located in Griffith Park, this trail doubles as, you guessed it, an abandoned zoo. While the trail is pretty much a paved road with a slight incline, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can explore off-trail and find some really pretty spots.

Culver City Stairs (a.k.a. Jefferson Stairs)

Think Stair-Master, but outdoors version. And once you get to the top, there’s a spot for meditation, people doing yoga and other fitness-related sportiness, and views that are uncomparable (which we’ll be saying a lot about the other hikes, too).

Temescal Canyon Trail

This is the trail to head to for perfect surroundings. Whether you opt to take the mountain route, surrounded by nature and forest life, or the ridge, where you get the ocean views, you won’t be missing out. It’s also steep – providing you with a great workout along the way.

Escondido Falls

This trail in Malibu is like it’s own little Oasis with a waterfall in the middle. You can hike the lower portion or the upper portion and still experience the magic that is tucked away in this Malibu paradise. It’s also dog friendly, so feel free to bring your pups.

Runyon Canyon

As the most Instagrammed hike in LA, how could we not include it? You can enter in a few different spots, starting at the bottom or the top, depending on what kind of workout you’re in the mood for. But rest assured, no matter where you start, you’ll be sure to get the most iconic views Los Angeles has to offer.

Los Angeles Summer Guide

Summer on the East Coast screams short Fridays, not-long-enough Saturdays and Sundays, and probably includes some uncomfortable subway rides or bumper to bumper traffic. However, summer in Los Angeles brings in a different tone. How do you differentiate summer when everyday feels like summer? Or at least summer weather. As Los Angeles experts (self-proclaimed, of course), we’re letting you know what pools we’ll be laying by, what rooftops we’ll be watching movies on, and what restaurants we’ll be eating at this summer.

Marissa Stahl, VP of Operations

Santa Monica Pier Concerts. My absolute favorite thing to do in LA during the summer. Every Thursday, there are different performers at the Santa Monica pier. Everyone brings wine, cheese and blankets and camps out on the beach, with the music in the distance. It’s a great way to spend time with friends outside and be a part of a larger event in the city. Don’t miss out on it this summer.

Hollywood Bowl. An LA classic. You can’t go wrong with seeing any performance at the Hollywood Bowl in the Summer; I’ve seen everyone from Barry Manilow and Dolly Parton to John Mayer and The XX. It’s the perfect summer night that you can only find in Los Angeles. Pro-tip: park at the church down the hill on Franklin for $10 and avoid the stacked parking at the Bowl.

Rosenthal Wines. All of the fun of Malibu wines, without the drive through the mountains. Rosenthal is a great place to spend a Saturday with friends or stop by on your way up the coast.

Sunsets at El Matador Beach. I pretty much find any reason to go to Malibu and El Matador is one of my favorite spots. It’s on the northern end of Malibu, but the rocks and coves provide an amazing backdrop for the sunset. Perfect for an afternoon picnic or a magic hour stroll on the beach, it’s definitely worth the drive.

Cinespia + Rooftop Cinema Club. Whether it’s a byo-picnic at Hollywood Forever Cemetery or a swanky rooftop with comfy chairs, outdoor movies are easily one of my favorite parts about summers in LA! They don’t start until the sun sets (around 8ish) so it’s nice to not have to rush to get there if you decide go to on a work night!

Palm Springs. Technically not LA but it’s nice to escape and hang poolside for a weekend!

Melrose Trading Post. This one is technically year-round but it feels so much more inspiring over the summer. I’ve been the past 3 weekends in a row and always manage to find something great whether it’s a new rug, a vintage jacket, or an outfit idea I saw on someone else who was shopping. I like to grab a coffee and go earlier in the day when it’s less crowded, then grab a coconut once it heats up!

Allison Gehrke, Art Director

Glassell Park Pool. If you don’t have a pool, have no fear! There is a community pool in Glassell Park with a small entry fee – worth it to beat the heat.

Malibu Rock Pools. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been here, but I’m dying to check out these little rock pools nestled in the Malibu mountains. I HAVE hiked the surrounding trails that lead to a beautiful lake community. And it is quite a sight.

Griffith Park. This is so much more than a hiking trail. Check out the observatory midway, keep going to reach the Hollywood sign and awesome LA views, or skip the hike all together and get lunch at Trails Cafe.

OTM. I’m a stay-at-home and cook-my-own-meal kinda gal, so this app is my fun excuse to get out of the house and try new restaurants and cafes. You pay a small monthly fee and receive a free meal a day from a different food spot around LA. The places and meals change every Sunday, so it’s always fun to see what new meals we have in store each week!

Follow Allison at @imalicegray.

Phoebe Schramm, Account Director

Shangri-la Hotel Roof/Penthouse at the Huntley. Another great spot to enjoy rose by the ocean and catch a sunset. Cool off on the rooftop of the Shangri-la hotel and enjoy the views above the city. Make sure to get there before sunset because the rooftop fills up fast!

Laguna Beach. I like to head south for a little R&R almost every weekend. If you’re looking for gorgeous beaches, hiking, a relaxed beach town community and endless caves / rock pools to explore, look no further. This place is magical!

Best Floral Shops in LA


But for real, this Spring, enjoy yourself a floral arrangement from some of LA’s trendiest floral spots. Or spread the joy with someone else. They make for the perfect “I’m sorry I hit your car while pulling into LA’s compact car parking spots” apology or “Congrats on getting that promotion; I thought this would look nicer on your Instagram feed than a kale salad” gift. We’re being generous and letting you in on our favorite spots, whether they be online or in-store.

Rolling Greens

The one-stop shop for all things floral and home decor. With options of live or artificial plants, furniture, and antiques, it’s almost impossible to leave Rolling Greens empty-handed.

Seed Floral

If you’re looking for creative floral gifts, look no further. Between plant amps, and curated floral gift sets, you can’t go wrong with a pick from Seed Floral. P.S. Seed Floral is also the hotspot for some of our favorite SSLA gifts.

The Bouqs Company

The Bouqs Company is the spot for those with a busy calendar. With regular delivery options, holiday subscription services, bulk ordering, and more, The Bouqs Company will keep all of your bases covered.

Bloomerent

The perfect way to do good while making a statement. Bloomerent is a service that allows you to recycle floral arrangements, protecting the environment while still allowing you to have that je ne sais quoi that flowers bring.

Spruce LA

A modern twist on the classic floral arrangement. Spruce offers floral arrangements in glass jars that add a new dimension to the standard potted flower. But fear not, if this modern twist isn’t your style, they still offer more timeless, classic bouquets and arrangements.

Twig & Twine

Open Wednesday-Saturday, Twig & Twine was founded by Heather Williams. Williams has had an affinity for anything floral from a young age, making her eye for arrangements unique and beautiful. Similar to Rolling Greens, Twig & Twine offers more than just flowers – branching out to and-picked gifts, home decor, artisanal goods and more.

Flowerboy Project 

Our Westside favorite. If you need a dose of weekend inspo or are out and about in Venice, make sure to stop by Flowerboy Project. With a coffee bar in the front & a boutique in the back, this is the perfect stop for a well-rounded Saturday. Pro-tip: order the Rose Girl latté.

The Empty Vase

A staple in Los Angeles, The Empty Vase has provided contemporary floral arrangements and installations for over 25 years. Taking it above and beyond, The Empty Vase offers services ranging from animal topiary structures (think what you would imagine having the Queen of England lining her lawn), flower clubs, and weekly delivery services.

Birch and Bone

If it’s good enough for the Kardashians, it’s good enough for us. Originally selling outside of The Ace Hotel and now selling through Postmates, Amelia Posada has created a floral empire of perfectly curated bouquets and arrangements.

Something Social Los Angeles Guide

So, your friend is coming to visit Los Angeles for the first time, and instead of relying on Google, she’s decided to make you her personal tour guide. Between the restaurants, the nature, and the nightlife, it’s hard to keep track of all of the places you can go and activities you can do.

We’ve rounded up our favorite LA spots so you don’t have to. Say goodbye to frantic Google searches and hello to SSLA’s Los Angeles Guide:

 

Allison, Art Director:

Hotel Cafe: The perfect place for intimate, live shows featuring up and coming artists.

School Night! at Bardot: Another great place to see intimate, live shows featuring up and coming artists. It’s every monday night and free with RSVP – just sign up for emails to get the lineups.

Cinespia: Every summer season, Cinespia hosts outdoor movie screenings in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Oaks Gourmet: Specialty food and coffee shop in Franklin Village at the base of the Hollywood Hills. A regular hangout for entertainers, which makes it great for gossipy eavesdropping and celebrity spottings.

The Upright Citizen Brigade: A great place to see improv and sketch comedy shows.

Bourgeois Pig: Bohemian late-night coffee shop with an eclectic and comfortable vibe. There’s disco lighting, several couches, large tables, a pool table and a funky jungle themed back room.

Follow Allison at @imalicegray.

 

Erin, Account Director:

Griffith Park: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love Griffith Park. Whether it’s a hike, a picnic, a view, or a tour of the Observatory, it’s the best way to see LA.

Good Luck BarOne of my all time favorite bars. It’s super tiki with dark red walls, dim lighting and there’s always a seat. Bonus points for cocktails served in tiki cups.

TerroniTheir downtown space took over an old bank and it’s such a gorgeous space. My favorite part of visiting with friends is sitting around with good food and wine so this place is perfect, it doesn’t hurt that their pasta is made fresh daily either.

Mast Brothers Chocolate: It doesn’t get more LA than expensive chocolate in designer packaging. They offer free tours of their DTLA Factory and I love bringing friends to the arts district because I feel like it’s somewhere you wouldn’t normally visit as a tourist but it’s such a great neighborhood.

Rooftop Cinema Club at The MontalbanThey only have it during the summer but it’s always a blast. Think Cinespia but with comfy chairs, warm blankets, and everyone listening with headphones on a rooftop in the middle of Hollywood Blvd.

Follow Erin at @eedykstra.

 

Phoebe, Account Director:

Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel: The ideal location for a drink at sunset. You get an amazing view of Santa Monica while sipping on an equally delicious cocktail.

Sugarfish San Vicente: For food that literally melts in your mouth. Warning: you’ll never want to eat at a different sushi restaurant again.

Montana Ave in Santa Monica: Filled with cute shops and restaurants, Montana Ave is great for an afternoon walk or when you want to get out of the touristy part of Santa Monica.

Forma Restaurant: Italian restaurant in Santa Monica that tosses pasta in cheese barrels before serving. Need I say more? Order the burrata with pomegranate and the spaghetti bolognese.

Follow Phoebe at @phoebenicolee.

 

Marissa, VP of Operations:

Blue Plate Taco: By far one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Not only because they know what they’re doing with the spicy margaritas, but also because the ambiance can’t be beat. Right on Ocean Avenue, with music & colorful lights in the background, it’s the perfect place to kick off a weekend. 

Concerts at the SM pier: These only happen on Thursdays in the summer, but are such a unique Southern California experience that I always try to make my friends visit for them. Get a group of people together, bring allll of the wine & cheese and picnic on the beach watching the sunset and listening to music in the distance. If you haven’t been to one yet, put it on your to-do list for Summer 2017. 

Melrose Trading Post: A classic LA experience, where you can literally get anything. Half of the furniture & decor in my apartment has been collected from various trips to this flea market. Unlike the Rose Bowl Flea Market (the ultimate flea market experience), it is smaller and more manageable for a causal Sunday morning with coffee. 

The Nice Guy: If you want the best burger & the best scene in LA, book your reservation here a few weeks in advance. Thank me later.

El Matador Beach: For next level views (and who am I kidding, a next level ‘gram), hit up El Matador in Malibu. One of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California that will instantly make you feel like  you’re in Cabo or Italy. Come for a picnic lunch in the afternoon or to walk the beach at sunset before grabbing a drink at Nobu Malibu. 

Good Times at Davey Wayne’s: I live on the Westside of LA and I regularly make the trek to Hollywood for Davey Wayne’s. A bar literally like no other in America, if you ask me. With 70s vibes, amazing music & original crafted cocktails, you will never forget a night out at this speakeasy-style bar. Look out for the fridge in the alley, you heard me right.
