SPOTLIGHT: THE BEST PLACES IN L.A. FOR VINA HANGS

So, you and your vinas are finally free on the same day, and can hang out! Super, exciting! What will you wear? But most importantly, where will you go? Check out this list of fun hang out spots in L.A. Share the list in your group chat, and move on to watching YouTube videos. Yay! Or, you can be awesome and host an event at any of the places below:  

Do you love food? Bond over a delicious meal at any of the amazing eatery options in Los Angeles.

DEKKADANCE

Check out this cute restaurant located on the 69th floor of InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, which is the tallest building on the west coast! Whether you want to try the sky view buffet or brunch the delicious meals and beautiful views are sure to make for a memorable day. Call ahead and make a reservation. Prices range from $35 and up.  

BARBRIX

Do bottomless mimosas for $8.00 sound even better to you? Yeah, me too! Head on over to Barbrix or Market Provisions ($5.00 bottomless mimosas) this weekend. It’s a small place but it’s great for groups. Brunch ends at 3 pm. The food is delicious.   

SUSHI DATE

Next, for all you sushi lovers (after all the California roll was invented in Los Angeles). Go to Sushi Stop in Hollywood or Pasadena. You can order small portions and all the menu items range from $3 to $8. So have fun and order away! By the way, the salads are great too.  

If you prefer an all you can eat spot try Sushi by Jin. The fish is always fresh and you can’t beat all you can eat sushi for the low price of $30. Oh, and free green tea ice-cream! 

 If you are in Glendale stop by Octopus Restaurant. They are not all you can eat, but they have great desserts. If you stop by during happy hour you can get an amazing deal. Their happy hour is almost as amazing as their dynamite roll.  

CASTLE BBQ 

Bring along at least one vina and visit Castle BBQ, an all you can eat Korean BBQ restaurant a few minutes away from Los Angeles City College. The food is great and only costs $12 per person for all you can eat. They literally have a sign at the door that says they won’t serve you food unless you’re a party of 2 or more. Also, there is always a line so be prepared to wait 10-30 minutes. You will be more than grateful to have your vinas! 

Although I can go on and on about all the amazing food places in L.A., let’s move on to a 4.20 friendly event. 

If your already high and that’s the only reason you read this far, let me tell you about the “Magic Bus Experience.” A general admission ticket costs $35 and includes free arcade games, a hot box disco, a pillow fort, Karaoke, a cosmic temple, a living coloring room, a bubble wrap bathroom, a Play-Doh kitchen among other multi-sensory experiences. Imagine being stoned while falling down a rabbit hole into an Alice in Wonderland themed black light mini golf course. Just in case your Maryjane vinas are not convinced yet, there’s also an unlimited CBD tea and an unlimited tater tot bar!  

TAKE A COOKING CLASS

Feeling adventurous? Take a cooking class with your vinas at Hip Cooks in East L.A. or West L.A. The classes are 3 hours long and cost $75. Make sure to sign up ahead of time because they don’t accept walk-ins. On March 14th they have “Thai One On” class and on March 17th they have “Dim Sum and then Some” class. They also have “Don’t cry for me Argentina,” “The Mo’rockin (Morrocan) spice trail,” “The cheesecake whiz,” “Jamaican me crazy,” and other fun classes.  

MELROSE ROOFTOP THEATRE

If you and your vinas have been wanting to go out for a movie, this outdoor cinema is perfect. Have dinner and order cocktails while watching the movie, or stop by L.P. the rooftop bar adjacent to the theatre before the movie. Plan ahead and buy tickets for this April the calendar is out now!  

GO CLUBBING  

Calling all dancing queens! Arena K-town is a free entry club. Thursdays is 18+ and the rest of the days are 21+. Don’t forget to take a selfie next to their “We do it for the ratchets” sign. There is usually a long line so come early. The AvalonLit LAElevate Lounge and Electric pussycat are also great picks. Because who doesn’t love to dance?  

ORGANIZE A MUSEUM DAY

Los Angeles has so many amazing museums and some of them are free on certain days. Stop by Moca, they are offering multiple unique exhibitions this spring in celebration of their 40th anniversary.  

MUSEUM OF SELFIES 

Courtesy of themuseumofselfies Instagram

Stop by the museum of selfies in Hollywood and take the most epic selfie in the group. Speaking of groups, they do offer group discounts if you email them ahead of time. They are a pop-up museum so if they are no longer in your area you can always stop by The Museum of Illusions which has a permanent location in Los Angeles. This is such a fun interactive experience and you are sure to have some awesome Instagram worthy photos. 

GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY

This place is beautiful! Entrance is still free and you can take turns looking through the telescopes. A starry night is sure to be a memorable experience. For vinas hanging out in the day time, Griffith Park is a great place to go hiking and see the Hollywood sign. You can also have a picnic or even go horseback riding. The scenery is wonderful.  

There are so many amazing things to do in the City of Angeles, and even more angels in the city to do them with. Find your angel squad on Hey! VINA today and plan your L.A. adventure!

Q&A WITH BRITTANY DEANDA AND TARA SCHULENBERG: “WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS THAT THRIVE ON CONNECTION BUT, ULTIMATELY, IT STARTS WITH US FIRST”

For Brittany Deanda and Tara Schulenberg, two best vinas from Los Angeles, CA, their friendship story started early. Meeting at a ballet class when they both were just 12 years old, the two besties are now high vibrational lifestyle experts, yogis who practice Kundalini yoga and co-founders of the mind/body/spirit podcast, Elevate the Globe.
We talked everything from astrology, to what exactly Kundalini yoga is, to how they found their tribe. Check it out!
Q: Let’s start with your career paths and how you found your love for yoga. Did you both find Kundalini yoga at the same time?
Britt: I was working in sales/marketing until I found Kundalini and really dove into the practice about nine years ago. I started High Vibe Livin’ which was the name of Elevate the Globe until about a year and a half ago. I really knew I wanted to help elevate others through this practice because it transformed my life so much and helped me to release addictions and changed how I felt dramatically.
Tara: I began to dive into astrology first about five years ago, and then found out about Kundalini through Britt and started practicing in San Francisco where I was living at the time. We went to John of God in NY together and received all of the messages and downloads about us working together to create what is now Elevate The Globe.

Q: What is Kundalini yoga for us newbie yogis?
A: Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness, and it is a very an ancient practice that uses the technologies of breathwork, movement and mantra. It was the first yoga created, and this practice works the fastest for someone to reach a higher consciousness because of the holistic science that works on all of the 10 bodies, all of the internal systems and mind. We have found and seen first hand that kundalini yoga will accelerate one into a spiritual awakening and open up many doors that were not accessible before.

Q: How can Kundalini help a person?
A: Kundalini can help each and every one of us to rewire our subconscious mind and change our patterning (sometimes picked up in childhood) and bring us into higher vibrational energy quickly, through the breath, postures, meditation and mantra. We hear so many stories through our online communities of how this practice has changed their lives—we always have to pause and really read what people say because there are so many and they are all so miraculous.
Q: Hey! VINA is all about helping vinas find their community. Why is community important to you both?
A: Community is so important to us because it helps us to elevate each other and bring awareness to so many places around the globe. We are all so much stronger together than we are alone. When you are awakening your Kundalini energy and experiencing ascension, it’s important to have someone to share and talk about it all with to feel safe, grounded and secure. It’s also part of this Aquarian Age we’re now in—connecting in the community and sharing ourselves with others to remember we are not separate beings, we are all the same, all made of energy and all connected through one consciousness.

Q: Did you ever deal with loneliness? What helped you through it?
A: Oh yes!! Loneliness is all a part of the process and we went through it, definitely. We are still building our new tribe as we are evolving but, ultimately, we found that healing and self-love allows us to find peace and company within ourselves so that no matter what, we feel full and supported.
Loneliness is a lower vibration and, no matter what lower vibration we are working to heal, it starts with going within and doing the energy work to clear blocks or stagnant energy within the corresponding chakras that relate to whatever lower emotion you’re going through, to elevate to a higher frequency energy and emotion. It’s all a process.
Then after we work on a subconscious energetic level, we do the conscious mindset work. We practice the Law of Attraction with everything in our lives, so if you are feeling lonely and focusing on how alone you are, that is what you will feel more of. If you want to move through the loneliness, focus on what you want and on the relationships you do have. Focus on love and connection and visualize what that looks and feels like. And have fun! Sometimes we get too serious and when we are enjoying the journey and connecting to joy, everything flows easier! Whatever makes you feel joyful we always suggest adding more of that and anything that’s not, get rid of it.
633A7070.jpg
Q: Why do you think loneliness is on the rise?
A: A lot of people are searching outside of themselves and always looking for approval from others but lacking actual human connection. Happiness is our birthright and this feeling and knowing can only truly come from the self. You must go within to see what parts of yourself are calling out for your attention and work with yourself from the inside out.
It’s so cool to see energy work and mindfulness on the rise and we see that as the start of releasing the loneliness so many feel. The culture in the U.S. especially is much more soloed than other countries where families and communities are very close-knit. It takes intention and energy to connect and make community a priority, but there are so many ways not to feel alone. It’s one of the main reasons we have created this community: to help more people find connection online and in-person. There are so many ways to connect, it’s just about putting yourself out there and attracting like-minded and hearted people! Social media helps so much to find your tribe! Many people can see social media as being anti-social but we feel just the exact opposite–it’s just a new way of being social with others and connecting with people from around the globe.
Q: How important is having your “tribe” in terms of finding your personal happiness?
A: Having a tribe is all about love and support.  We are human beings that thrive on connection but, ultimately, it starts with us first. Personal happiness is about you and not anything outside of yourself. When we love ourselves and allow ourselves to heal through whatever it is we carry with us, we are able to give and receive love at a high capacity. Then having your tribe makes life so much better and more fun!
Q: What sparked your interest in astrology?
Tara: I have always been interested in and fascinated by the stars, the planets and what’s going on out in the universe since I was a little girl. My mom actually had my chart written up when I was young and, when I held it in my hands, it was some sort of remembrance—I knew this information and how to utilize it. I’ve always turned to astrology and numerology to help me understand the world around me, and it was a system I was just naturally drawn to help me understand myself and others.
Britt: I use it to be in harmony with the energy of the planet and I love to use Kundalini to align with the energy of the astrology through the meditations and kriyas I’m doing. I love feeling the energy and using my intuition and then seeing how it matches up and aligns with what’s going on!! Tara knows my whole chart and does all the astrology for our business and timing, so it’s great having her as a resource for it all.

Q: What astrology signs do you see having a great 2019? Why?
A: All of them! We deeply believe in the Law of Attraction, remember? Everyone will have a good year if they want to and focus their energy on it!
This year in numerology is a 3 year which is all about creative self-expression, being social and connecting with others, and expansion…so we can ALL use this energy to upgrade our lives. Of course, we all align differently to the planets with our signs but overall, if we are tapping into ourselves and our surroundings, we trust that everything—even the perceived challenges—is truly a blessing! Overall, this will be an easier year for everyone at a universal level than 2018. Last year was an 11/2 year which called for massive spiritual growth and awakening…which can leave some of us grumpy and feeling alone. This year will be so much more fun, and we know so many people are already feeling this creative, social energy.

INSIDE OUR EPIC LA FASHION WEEK VINA PLAN

Hey, vinas! Hey! VINA’s Community Manager Lora Levison here to tell you fabulous vinas all about the amazing night I had. So sit back and pour some bubbly🥂—this is good.

On October 10, I hosted a public plan inviting all vinas in Los Angeles to attend Los Angeles Fashion Week at the Petersen Automotive Museum. (Alert: If you haven’t checked out the discover plans feature in your app, or started hosting your own plans, are you really living?!). We saw the latest collections from designers Irina Marchuk, Irishlatina by Rebecca Rivera, Veronican Vallenes and Bohemian Society. I’m so glad I created this plan because I got to share several fashionista moments with my forever vinas, Juliet Lemar and Maya!

 

So why did Juliet have fun? “It was a fantastic night of inspiration and art. The highlight for me was meeting so many talented, creative, and wonderful people,” she says. YAS!

And even though Maya admits that she was a little nervous showing up at the open plan because she didn’t know anyone, she’s so happy she came. “My highlights were the runway shows and intermission because I was able to meet new people and get a feel for the fashion world,” she explained. “At the end, I was more comfortable. I felt like I’ve made a connection with the girls!”

✨🛍Vina fashionistas Juliet, Lora and Maya✨🛍

For Juliet, it’s obvious why more vinas should be enjoying the plans feature. “Life is about getting out and living!” she says. “Creating future plans allows users to add events to their calendars and plan everything accordingly to insure a seamless, low stress, meet-up.”

As a supporter of VINA, she loves the mission behind the app: “One of my life goals is to make women feel less alone and VINA resonates with me because it brings women together to celebrate their power, uniqueness, passions, and above all community.”

Maya agrees. “The plans feature lets you connect with people you haven’t matched with yet and it’s easier to actually meet up with people instead of matching and not even talking to each other. Being on VINA has changed my life for the better because I was able to go to my first fashion show and was able to meet new people and make connections!”

Thanks for sharing, vinas! Need some tips on how to create a successful VINA plan? Read this! Now, get posting and RSVPing📅💃
