Who went to the block party on Third Street last night? It was a promotional thing for Third Street shopping.
Most of all the stores and restaurants between Fairfax and La Cienega had free samples of food, drink and store sales. COOL! 10% off a $500.00 pair of shoes. GOOD DEAL!
No but, It was actually pretty fun. I wasn't sure what it was going to be like but, because me and my hubby live in the area and had not much else to do, we went to check it out. We ran in to two friends there and so we toured the shops together. There was wine at Joan's on Third and food samples, margarita's, vodka sangria from L.A. Foodcourt, energy drinks. There was even a free photo booth where you could take photos. Anyway, it was surprisingly fun and just wondered if anyone else went and has something to say about it. :)

  1. what the heck?!? I am on the mailing list on one of the stores, I get gold star events and daily candy. How the heck did I miss this?!

    Anyhow, W. third st is one of the better streets in all of LA (in my opinion), so I would imagine it to be a very good event. Great restaurants and great retail. What more could you ask for.

    Anyhow, I will be sure to look out for it next time.

    1. I love this event and have been going for the last couple of years. I started with a glass of Sophia Champage at Trina Turk and kept going from there. It's done twice a year, the winter event is usually held the first week of December. Here's a link to the website for future dates:
