7 Ways to Actually Feel Winter-y in Los Angeles

 

Winter is coming... well it's already here.

Los Angeles has been getting pretty cold, we even have snow on the mountains. But when you're in LA you can't always cozy up by the fire while it's snowing outside your front door, so we've rounded up a list of our favorite things to do in LA to make it feel a little more like Christmas :) Let us know if we missed anything in the comments!

Grab a Drink

Hot Chocolate at Cafe Demitasse: Try a modern twist on the classic seasonal drink with Demitasse’s lavender hot chocolate, a supremely indulgent drink topped with a thick, toasted marshmallow and laced with hints of herb. It’s basically a gourmet dark chocolate bar in liquid form and completely addictive. It's also award-winning ;)

Hot Buttered Run at The Varnish: Hot buttered rum doesn't exactly scream Southern California, but we certainly don't have a shortage of the sweet buttery drinks around L.A. At The Varnish, the speakeasy in the back of Cole's, the hot buttered rum has garnered praise since the bar opened in 2009. "NYC natives like myself miss the east coast chill that gives us a solid excuse to cozy up with a toddy, Irish coffee or hot buttered rum," says bartender and co-owner Eric Alperin. That's why you can find his near-perfect one 365 days a year.

Boozy Eggnog at The Tam O'Shanter: Tam O'Shanter is one of the oldest restaurants in LA and a classic. Operating since 1922, this place feels like a Scottish travelers lodge that a Stark could walk into at any point. During the holidays they offer up a boozy eggnog tea service packed with carolers and prime rib.

Fawn over real reindeer, visit Santa, and gaze at one of L.A.’s most impressive Christmas light displays at L.A. Zoo Lights. The celebration runs through January 7, but check the calendar for special events. This year they’ve launched two nights of “Holiday Happy Hour”—December 7 is “Flapjacks & Flannel” sponsored by Bushmills’ Red Bush Irish Whiskey and December 8 brings “Tamales & Tequila” sponsored by VIVA XXXII Tequila. Expect gourmet hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and a signature cocktail in the lounge area to accompany the dazzling lights.

Great Spots to See Christmas Lights

Christmas Tree Lane: Christmas Tree Lane is a 0.7-mile boulevard of deodar cedar trees in Altadena, California. The trees on the Lane, Santa Rosa Avenue, have been lighted annually as a Christmas Holiday display since 1920. The association that runs it claims it is "the oldest large-scale outdoor Christmas display in the world".

Sleepy Hollow Christmas Lights: Tucked in a South Torrance neighborhood is one of the most spectacular display of Christmas Lights in the South Bay. It’s a neighborhood tradition where folks can walk or drive through to get in the holiday spirit. Sleepy Hollow Christmas Lights Extravaganza (also know as Candy Cane Lane) is located on Roberts Rd. off Pacific Cost Highway. SHCLE is on display from 6-10 p.m. every night starting December 1st until the evening of New Year’s Day. Walking offers a much more relaxed, up-close view of all the displays, without worrying about holding up the cars behind you. Some of the houses will be selling hot chocolate, coffee, or churros as you walk through the neighborhood.

Candy Cane Lane: Candy Cane Lane has been a tradition in Woodland Hills since 1952 and the residents have tried to outdo each other with their light displays each year.

Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade: Watch a trail of lighted boats cruise through the main channel. Arrive early to grab a spot on the lawn at Chace Park or a good photo spot at Fisherman’s Village, two of the most popular viewing places. Narration on a PA system is available at both locations. The 2019 parade theme is “Kids Make Holidays Bright.” A brief fireworks show at 5:55 p.m. announces the start of the parade, which lasts until about 8 p.m. Free admission. The Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade organization is a volunteer-run, non-profit community organization that presents the parade with support from corporate and community sponsors, in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors.

    BITCOIN LOST OR STOLEN? LOST RECOVERY MASTERS TELLS YOU HOW TO GET IT BACK.

    I was originally introduced to bitcoin by an Instagram acquaintance of mine. The notion appealed to me, so I decided to invest through the website. I made money from investments in the beginning, and I continued to do so until the website vanished. I couldn’t get any money out before the incident, but luckily my friend suggested Lost Recovery Masters. Right on schedule, they helped me receive my entire money back. It was a pleasure to work with them and they did an excellent job. It may seem unbelievable, yet it is exactly what happened. They put a lot of effort into their work, and we were reimbursed. Consult Lost Recovery Masters.
