Oscar Parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills

It’s that time of year when actors and actresses survive on a lima bean per day to look their best for the Academy Awards and the many Oscar parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  The actual ceremony is on Sunday, February 26, 2017, but look for events all week long. Slim to none, you’ll get close to your favorite stars on Hollywood Blvd, as seating in the bleachers for the red carpet arrivals is already maxed out with their online lottery to fill approximately 700 seats. Security is extremely tight in the general area of the Dolby Theatre, with road closures blocks away on each side of the venue.  Because the Governors Ball takes place just above the Dolby, this

Visitors Guide to Rose Bowl Game and Parade

If coming to Los Angeles, one must have a visitors guide to the Rose Bowl Game and Parade happening in Pasadena.  This year, both will take place on Monday, January 2nd, 2017, as opposed to the typical New Years Day.  That’s because the Tournament of Roses that puts on both events has a “never on a Sunday” tradition dating back to 1893.  This was done to assure that horses hitched outside churches wouldn’t be spooked during events.  There’s no more horses (other than those in the parade itself), but the tradition continues. There will still be plenty of celebrating on New Years Eve along Colorado Boulevard with visitors and parade watchers grabbing the best seats along the route for the parade
