This sounds like a dream doesn’t it? The Hard Rock Cafe is hosting a two-day festival at a beach-front venue this summer. Deep breath. I want to go! My favorite bands, amazing music, the sandy beaches of Barcelona, Spain…

It’s not a dream. It can happen. You can go. I might see you there!

The Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood locations at Universal CityWalk and on Hollywood Blvd are sending one lucky winner to the Hard Rock Rising Barcelona Global Music Festival! It’s easy to enter, just Instagram a picture of you and your favorite Hard Rock merchandise and tag @HARDROCKLA with #SENDMETOBARCELONA between now and May 13th—the winner will be announced on May 20th!  Be sure to read the Rules: http://hardrock.co/1ECgvpY

Hard Rock announced that American rock band, Kings of Leon; Latin rock superstar, Juanes; American rock singer-songwriter, Lenny Kravitz; Swedish electric dance music DJ, Avicii; DJ-producer and former member of Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello are all a part of the lineup for the first Hard Rock Rising Barcelona global music festival. The weekend-long event will take place at the Platja del Forum (Parc de la Pau, s/n. Sant Adrià de Besòs, Barcelona) on Friday, July 24, and Saturday, July 25, 2015.  The festival features 16 hours of live music across two full days at this unforgettable site which embraces the magic of Barcelona’s beach-front venue. Visit www.hardrockrisingbarcelona.es for additional talent announcements and event details.

 “We are honored to partner with Live Nation and the City of Barcelona to showcase this dynamic lineup of incredible musical talent at the first-ever Hard Rock Rising Barcelona global music festival,” said James Buell, HRI Senior Director of Music and Marketing. “This music festival is the perfect way to bring legendary rock stars and emerging artists together on Hard Rock’s global stage.”


The news on the street is…The Corner Door is one of the best spots for cocktails in all of Southern California. And now, with Executive Chef Brendan Collins in charge of the kitchen, The Corner Door has an all new Dinner Menu with eats to match.

Collins loves Culver City. “It is a close-knit community, and all the restaurants are friends with each other,” he says. “I lived and worked in Culver City for seven years, and wanted to keep a connection with the neighborhood.“

As Executive Chef, Collins will be cooking at The Corner Door at least one day a week, but his longtime lieutenant and Chef de Cuisine Ali Haji has taken charge of day-to-day operations. Haji has worked with Collins continually for the last eight years, beginning at Mesa, in Costa Mesa. “I am closer to Ali than anyone, maybe even my own wife,” Collins says. “He knows what I like and the standards I like to keep; he is ready to step up and run his own kitchen.”

The menu partially reflects Haji’s view of Southern California cuisine. “At The Corner Door, the menu pulls from what I consider the culture of LA — everything from Asian to Mexican to Middle Eastern to French.”

The connection between the kitchen and bar runs much deeper than just sharing a building at The Corner Door. “The food stands up to the drinks. Ali and I talk every day about what we are working on,” says Beau du Bois, The Corner Door’s well-known Bar Manager. “Brendan’s approach to cooking and The Corner Door’s reputation for cocktails are a good match – complex flavors with notes of comfort and innovation.”

Rediscover (or DISCOVER!) The Corner Door, a friendly neighborhood hot spot with amazing drinks and yummo food to go with ’em!

The Corner Door is open Sunday through Thursday from 5:00 pm to 12:00 am, and from 5:00 pm to 2:00 am on Friday and Saturday. Happy Hour is offered every day from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, and late night happy hour is also available every night. For more information or reservations, please visit www.thecornerdoorla.com or call The Corner Door directly at 310.313.5810.  12477 W. Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90066

The 2015 6th ANNUAL HOPE OF THE VALLEY CBS STUDIOS GALA and HOPE AWARDS is seeking support for the Hope of the Valley’s new Recuperative Care Center, a center designed for the short term medical care, mental health, addiction services, and case management for homeless patients recovering from an illness or injury in a clean, safe environment off of the streets. Currently there are only three recuperative care facilities in Los Angeles, none of which are located in San Fernando Valley. Unlike the other existing programs, Hope of the Valley’s Recuperative Care Center will have an open door policy enabling them to accept a wider array for medically vulnerable homeless patients 24/7 who are unable to perform their activities of daily living. We thank you for your continuing support on all of our endeavors to help the homeless population of San Fernando Valley transition from the streets into permanent housing.
