For a busy entrepreneur like myself, I have to pick and choose my social calendar selectively. Fortunately, there are events in Los Angeles that cater to professionals who enjoy a healthy work hard/play hard lifestyle. Digital LA, founded by CEO Kevin Winston is one of those great organizations that mixes networking with a festive and informal social cocktail hour environment. Digital LA’s events consist of a monthly Digital Drinks gathering which are held most usually at various swanky hot spots in the L.A. area. Previous affairs have been at the Viceroy, Roosevelt, SLS, Conga Room, and Coco de Ville. The great thing about Kevin’s Digital Drink nights are they are exclusive for guests of that particular Digital LA event and off limits to the public during these hours. It’s also a refreshing way to experience these various bars/lounges in the L.A. area with like minded business professionals.

My company was a sponsor at a previous Digital Drink’s gathering held at Hollywood’s Green Door and I was joined by my fellow Fashionistas including Meghan Cleary – America’s Shoe Expert, Kyra Davis– best selling author of the Sophie Katz book series and Samya Gharbieh with luxury company Omega. During these Digital Drink soirees, there are most often cocktails and food that Kevin has negotiated at special prices. Along with networking with friends both new and old, we enjoyed selections from the bar, along with complimentary pizza and chocolate – a definite highlight for the Food Fashionista. Digital LA also hosts informative panels for all things tech related along with bbqs and parties for events such as SXSW and the Oscars.

    I just got back from RI & NY reviewing restaurants for a national magazine, and I needed a little FF FIX. You just have to love Mika’s ability to effortlessly emulsify fun with networking. I do. One of these days I hope to invite Mika to be my Celebrity Guest for an upcoming dinner review. Could there be a better Celebrity Guest? I wonder if she is ever in So Flo? (Are you ever in SoBe or Ft. Lauderdale Mika)? It will have to be for a good cause though, because I know she must pick and choose her social events carefully. Here, especially in Sunny South Florida, I know the feeling. It seems that I am always booked 10 days to two weeks in advance…and although this goes against my nature (because I am one who prefers spontaneity), there is just no way for me to continue my burgeoning career as a sought after food critic and giver of publicity, never duplicity, without my dreaded appointment book… Keep the good times rolling Mika san!
