Big News @ Improv Olympic
I have some very late breaking news to tell you. Big News at Improv Olympic on Hollywood is funny, real funny.

Improv Olympic is located at 6366 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more info visit

Hipsters Unite! One of the biggest hot spots to dance on Friday night after a pretty hard work-week is Underground at Tempest.

Tempest is located at 7323 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood

No Hokey Karaoke @ Clear
Karaoke is pretty serious stuff. I’m not kidding. It might as well be an Olympic sport. The talent to muster all of that creative energy in those two or three minutes in front of a hundred people can be pretty stressful. So wouldn’t it better to do it at some classier joint than say… a dive bar? Well Clear in Studio City is just the place. Enjoy the drinks and sing, sing, sing. Hopefully they have some Jefferson Starship in the playlist. Clear is located at 11916 Ventura Blvd. in Studio City
