Just like dineLA's recently extended Restaurant Week, Los Angeles Fashion Week has turned into more of a Fashion Month. We're the first to admit that Los Angeles is no New York when it comes to carrying fashion heft, but there's talent floating around the 405, especially in the Downtown Fashion District. Since early October, various shopping events, trunk shows, previews, and the like, have been taking place around town in celebration of the city's well-known and emerging designers.
Edgy denim label Rock & Republic recently held a collaboration launch party with Essie, and former Robertson Boulevard super-boutiques Madison and Diavolina celebrated their West Third flagship store launch last Thursday with stylists and respected denim designers Emily Current and Merritt Elliott of Current/Elliott. But as Los Angeles is all about what's new and what's next, one of the more anticipated events coming up this month is Gen Art's Fresh Faces in Fashion show on Thursday, October 29th from 7:00 to 11:00 PM.

The venerable Downtown Los Angeles restaurant, El Cholo is notable for at least three things: (1) being open since the Great Depression, (2) making mind-eraser strength margaritas, and (3) introducing to the City of Angels a little thing we like to call the nacho. Heady stuff, we know. We'll address each in turn.
Take the 400,000 people who commute into downtown Los Angeles every weekday. At 4:30pm every day, present them with this little brainteaser: either you can sit on the freeway for two hours inhaling smog while the seconds of your life slowly tick way or you can throw back a few cocktails at one of downtown's fine dining establishments.
The resulting situation is what economists refer to as a "market opportunity" and predictably there are a number of restaurants that have opened after-work happy hours in recent years. These are much-needed bright spots in the lives of those who have to work in downtown LA and the unlucky business travelers who have to shack up there instead of Santa Monica or Beverly Hills.
That said, we sought out the best happy hour in downtown LA and it all comes down to the cheeseburger.
