Petra Zavaleta, from East LA’s street food operation Barbakush, is the chef behind Lanea and is known as the “Barbacoa Queen of Los Angeles.” Petra serves traditional lamb barbacoa by way of Puebla, Mexico. Her and her husband, and her sons work together to create their lamb barbacoa, which is a true labor of love. They source the lamb locally from Chino Hills and build a traditional underground barbecue oven in their backyard cooking the entire lamb over wood and maguey leaves coals.  Petra learned this ancient method of butchering and barbecuing from her parents and grandparents in Puebla at age 10, and became an LA Legend with a secret restaurant at her house before joining forces with Lanea in 2019 to offer her famed barbacoa tacos on the Westside of Los Angeles. Petra’s barbacoa tacos pair perfectly with Lanea’s cocktail program including over 400 varieties of Mezcals and tequilas, and hand-crafted cocktails.

Offering five different styles of classic tacos on their handmade-to-order corn tortillas, as well as chips and guacamole, they are the perfect complement to Lanea’s unique cocktail menu.

Fairmont Taghazout Bay

FAIRMONT TAGHAZOUT BAY – A NEW DEFINITION OF COASTAL LUXURY 

Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the much-anticipated five-star Fairmont Taghazout Bay has opened in Morocco, introducing a new design by Wimberly Interiors that redefines contemporary coastal luxury.

The stunning surroundings of Agadir became a source of inspiration for the designers who spent eight years working on the project, taking cues from local textures and techniques and the awe-inspiring landscape. The result is an authentic, layered look and feel that’s reflective of the mountainous terrain, sand and sea, with accents of geometric patterns, colours synonymous with the region, and signature Fairmont elements.

Upon arrival, guests are taken on a journey – overlooking a village beyond that leads to the sea. Across the site, the interior design integrates with the buildings’ shapes and forms – with views framed throughout and a series of internal courtyards that nod to the traditional riads of Morocco. 

Inside, a natural and organic approach to materials is punctuated with vibrant color, highlighting Moroccan artistry and referencing local Berber design. Firmly grounding the guest in the destination of Taghazout, Morocco’s signature mint tea – with its unique taste in each region – is ceremonially poured as a welcome gesture, creating a truly unique experience that celebrates people and place. 

A sense of place was integral to the Fairmont Taghazout Bay’s identity. It was important for our design team to draw on the rich craft and patterns of the region, like traditional zellige tiles, tadelakt plaster and brick- and metalwork, complemented by a colour palette of deep, inky blues and neutrals, says Rachel Johnson, Senior Vice President and Studio Director of Wimberly Interiors London. Decorative lighting and rugs were sourced throughout the country, ensuring that feature furnishings highlighted the strength of Morocco’s artisans, Rachel adds.

Food and Beverage Design

Damien Follone, Senior Associate and Senior Designer, Restaurant and Bars at Wimberly Interiors London, said: Morocco has a rich culinary identity, which led us to explore the food scene in cities like Marrakech, Essaouira and Agadir to better understand the breadth and diversity of the cuisine. The research guided the F&B experiences across the Fairmont Taghazout Bay, like the local Berber culture of sharing and cooking methods such as the tagine. The souk and Taghazout’s proximity to the sea also informed both the food direction and design across The Commons, Beef and Reef and Japanese.

All-day dining – The Commons

A play on colour and material from the region, the all-day dining references Souk El Had in Agadir. The arches in The Commons restaurant were constructed by local craftspeople, with local bricks.

Pool bar and grill – Beef & Reef

Seamlessly integrating with the outdoors, this relaxing space encourages guests to connect with the landscape. Blurring the lines between the restaurant, pool, and sea beyond, this intimate yet airy space references a traditional Tataoui Berber ceiling.

The Japanese Restaurant

This destination dining experience uses local textures, materials, and delicate details to create a Japanese aesthetic. Animated and lively, it features contemporary Moroccan metalwork with aged, hammered copper. 

Fairmont Spa

The multi-level experience is a nod to traditional Moroccan courtyards and gardens, and the spa nestles quietly in an enclave of beautifully landscaped small buildings. From a sculptural staircase at the reception overlooking the spa gardens, to the sunken hammams, the spa is a truly Moroccan experience. Moroccan tadelakt plaster walls and zellige tiles are focal points – adding to an authentic, calm experience.

Wedding Must-Haves

Happy wedding season! Let’s look into some marital must-haves to make your special day perfect.

  • DJ/Band

This is an absolute must-have, of course. Music plays such an important role in having a romantic, enjoyable, and memorable celebration. Finding a DJ isn’t super hard, and their services can vary in price. A band, on the other hand, can be a little more difficult. However, bands provide a different atmosphere to add to the day that the guests can look forward to.  Music keeps things lively and energetic, and is sure to get everyone dancing.

  • Barda

Whether guests pay for drinks or you provide an open tab, having a bar is very necessary. Having both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for guests during the reception is a great party idea.

  • Photographer/Videographer

Photographers have always been a necessity for weddings. They capture beautiful moments to always look back on to remember the wonderful day. Something that this generation has made more popular for weddings is videographers. Personally, looking back at videos is one of the best ways to relive a memory. Videographers not only film, but also put together a romantic short films to re-watch the most precious moments.

  • All You Can Eat Appetizers

Who wants to celebrate when everyone is hangry? Having consistent appetizers is so important to keep guests happy. Sometimes, people don’t love sitting down for a huge meal–especially when drinking and dancing. Having small bites will keep everyone happy.

  • A Playlist

Make sure you have an idea of what songs you do and don’t want to play. Don’t stress about it on the day of!

  • Wedding Direction Signs

Not every wedding needs direction signs, and honestly, sometimes guests don’t even bother looking. However, providing directions to parking, restrooms, reception, food, ceremony and other wedding venue locations could be beneficial for guests.

  • Wedding Menu

If you choose to have a buffet or serve the same meal to every guest, the wedding menu is not needed. However, wedding menus can be beneficial and guests will appreciate having dish options.

  • Sparklers

Sparklers are usually used for the bride and groom’s grand exit. They add a beautiful and spectacular touch to moments, photos and videos.

  • Plan For Inclement Weather

If the wedding is planned for outdoors, it’s always important to think of a plan B, just in case the weather changes. Coming up with a backup plan will save you the stress.

  • Just Relax

Forgetting about materialistic things for a moment. Remember to enjoy every step of the wedding planning journey and your special day. Everything happens for a reason and will fall into place, no matter how stressful it seems at the time.

World’s Largest Open-Air Bar

Sweden Creates the World’s Largest Open-Air Bar

Following the success of the 2019 Edible Country campaign is the launch of Drinkable Country – the largest, open-air, world-class bar led by internationally acclaimed team at Tjoget, and other leading Swedish beverage experts. Starting June 15, visitors can book a seat at more than 16 tables located in some of Sweden’s most beautiful natural landscapes for a chance to enjoy a selection of drinks and DIY recipes reflecting the country’s 100-million-acre natural pantry.

The world’s largest, outdoor, socially distanced bar is opening this summer in Swedish nature. In 2019, Sweden launched The Edible Country, the world’s largest DIY gourmet restaurant, with recipes developed by Guide Michelin-awarded chefs. The concept, which until now, consisted only of food, is being expanded to include an incredible drinking experience. Drinkable Country features a combination of ready-made beverages that reflect local nature and produce alongside drinks those visitors can mix themselves with ingredients found in the surroundings based on recipes provided by Sweden’s foremost beverage experts. When booking a Drinkable Country experience, guests will have the opportunity to explore the area with local guides while collecting and mixing the ingredients, and then enjoy the various drinks.

“The DIY recipes enable visitors to explore Swedish nature through world-class taste experiences,” says Jens Heed, Program Director Food Travel at Visit Sweden. “The country’s 100-million-acre pantry of fruit, berries, vegetables, and crystal-clear spring water is open to everyone. We call it the Drinkable Country – the world’s largest open-air bar.”

The recipes have been developed in collaboration with four different beverage experts, each of whom has been given the responsibility to represent different regions in Sweden. Rebecka Lithander represents southern Sweden. Lithander has experience from the two-Michelin-star restaurant Daniel Berlin, where she raised the non-alcohol drink packages to the same high level as the food. The tables on the west coast are represented by Bar Bruno, a local gem of a cocktail bar; while on the east coast, it is the world-famous bar Tjoget that will compose the drink menu. Emil Åreng, a nationally and internationally acclaimed bartender and author of the world’s best cocktail book in 2016, represents the northern part of Sweden.

“It is a thirst-quenching journey through Swedish nature that is a completely new and fascinating way to experience cocktails and to discover the country and its natural environment,” says Leo Lahti, Bar Manager at Tjoget.

In Sweden, nature is everyone’s playground. It’s a place to linger – as long as you do not disturb or destroy it – thanks to the unique Allemansrätt – Swedens’s “freedom to roam.” With the Drinkable Country, Sweden invites everyone to experience their close-to-nature lifestyle over world-class food and drink.

More information about the experience: Visit Sweden

  • Southern Sweden: Rebecka Lithander is an acclaimed sommelier who now works at the locally praised restaurant Mutantur in Malmö. Before joining Mutantur she worked at the two-star Guide Michelin restaurant Daniel Berlin.
  • Western Sweden: Bar Bruno, a small cosy bar that serves innovative cocktails with a home-bar feel.
  • Eastern Sweden: For the past five years, Tjoget has been on the list of the World’s 50 Best Bars.

Emil most recently came from Cardier Baren at the historic Grand Hôtel in Stockholm, where he was Creative Director. He is the author of the cocktail book Salongs i Norrland, which was named Best Cocktail Book in the World in 2016.

The Edible Country

The Edible Country’ is an initiative from Visit Sweden to highlight the natural and healthy pantry that Swedish nature has to offer.

The initiative is an open invitation for everyone to experience the Swedish ‘close-to-nature’ lifestyle and take pleasure in the natural pantry that Sweden has to offer. Add-on services that will help you during your experience, for example, your very own personal guide or chef and a basket with the necessary ingredients to create the drinks or cook the recipes outdoors are available to book online.

1923 Prohibition Bar Celebrates National Bourbon Day

1923 Prohibition Bar at Mandalay Bay, open seven days a week, announces National Bourbon Day specials on Monday, June 14 with 15% off their house bourbon flight available at the bar top with tasting notes. The bourbon flight is regularly priced at $32 and includes a sampling of today’s most popular bourbons including Buffalo Trace, Bulleit, Angel’s Envy and Angel’s Envy Rye.

The new, Prohibition-themed 1923 Prohibition Bar, is a private, hidden, modern speakeasy, serving bourbon spirits and signature barrel-aged specialty cocktails. The elegant venue also hosts live burlesque shows, live rock band karaoke and bourbon education and tasting classes.

Prohibition

For those of you who don’t know what prohibition and speakeasies are, Prohibition started in 1920 with the Volstead Act and was essentially a piece of legislation that outlawed drinking within the US, and was created as a result of the Christian Temperance movement that started with what we consider to be the first wave of feminism in the 1820s-1930s, as women wanted to, among other things, prevent spousal abuse that would occur as a result of drinking. Needless to say, the act was hard to enforce and people began distributing liquor illegally, known as “bootlegging,” and people would go to illegal bars, known as “speakeasies.” Gangs rose in popularity during this time, such as Al Capone, as a result of bootlegging. The act was officially repealed in 1933.

National Bourbon Day

National Bourbon Day is a day in which to celebrate America’s National Spirit, a drink created officially by Elijah Craig in the limestone shelf region, where most whisky is still made, in the 1700s. Charred barrels gave the whisky it’s iconic oaky flavor. It is still produced predominantly in America (hence the title of America’s National Spirit) and is enjoyed by many today.
