Laurel Tavern: A Gastropub with California Flair

December 17, 2014 5:05 pm

Laurel Tavern is a rustic gastropub and a meat lover’s paradise. This popular Studio City bar and restaurant boasts an expansive menu filled with casual, high quality meats with a Southern twist, including chorizo sliders with pickled peppers, pork belly skewers and a variety of burgers made with grass fed beef and farmhouse cheddar. The menu does offer a few other items aside from its perfectly marinated beef, but even the thick French fries are cooked in duck fat to infuse them with a meaty flavor.

Laurel Tavern features a convenient self-service counter ordering system and a number of wooden tables with industrial metal stools scattered throughout. The bar gets extremely crowded on weekends when local camp out to enjoy handcrafted cocktails like the Ginger Smash or El Diablo, but the loud, lively atmosphere makes Laurel Tavern a fun choice for a night out.

Organize Your Closet With These Easy Tips

December 10, 2014 5:04 pm

We’ve all been there: You open the closet door to put something inside, and the mess of clothes, shoes, and other unused items tumbles out onto the floor. If you’re sick of looking at the mess inside of your closet, add closet organization to your list of weekend cleaning tasks. These simple tips can help.

  1. Use the right hangers. Using wire clothes hangers or cheap plastic hangers without grooves is a recipe for disaster. Invest in some nice wooden or sturdy plastic hangers and you’ll be amazed at how the clothes stay in place without falling off.
  2. Add drawers. Go to a home store and pick up a dresser or some other no-install storage solution to add storage space to your closet.
  3. Pack away out-of-season clothing. There’s no reason to have to shuffle through winter coats in the summer and swimwear in the winter. Make a point to pack out-of-season items in either rubber boxes or vacuum-sealed containers, and then put them in storage or under your bed to maximize the room in your closet.
  4. Fold certain items. Sweaters, long-sleeved t-shirts, and other tops can often stretch out when on a hanger for too long, so fold these items and place them on shelves instead.
  5. Add an armoire. If you find you still need extra storage, add an armoire. They’re often very attractive, and they help keep closets neat and tidy.
