LA Weekly Picks Giorgio’s as Dance Club of the Year


Though only a year old, it has been attended by such stars as Mick Jagger, Diddy, Billy Idol and Leonardo DiCaprio. Named after famed Italian producer Giorgio Moroder — who basically invented disco — it was founded by longtime party promoter Bryan Rabin and Adam Bravin, who serves from time to time as President Obama’s DJ. Oh, and as for the event itself? You enter through a kitchen. [LA Weekly]

driverless-cars-california

At City Lab’s Maker LA this past Monday at the Ace Theater downtown, where Eric Garcetti, LACMA’s Michael Govan, Rick Caruso, and chef Roy Choi were joined by LA entrepreneurs to discuss the future of our city, Garcetti said he wants Los Angeles to be the first city to offer residents rides in driverless cars. He said the city could be the first place really in an urban center where we have autonomous vehicles that are able to be ordered up (like a car service). #CityLab2014 #MakerLA #TheJetsons [LAist]

The Tallest Tower In The U.S. Is Being Built By A Woman

Nicole Dosso, technical director of 1 World Trade Center, is the most famous architect you’ve never heard of. When I met her, the 40-year-old Dosso, who runs marathons in her spare time, was effortlessly chic–more Paris than New York–in a brightly patterned Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, steeply pitched white patent leather heels, and a string of silvery pearls. [Fast.co]
