BROOKFIELD’S FREE FIGAT7TH DOWNTOWN FESTIVAL

BROOKFIELD’S FREE FIGAT7TH DOWNTOWN FESTIVAL

FIGFest 2017

At the intersection of South Figueroa and 7th Street, is Downtown LA’s leading
shopping and dining destination – FIGAT7TH – a major player in the resurgence of Downtown Los Angeles.

Reigniting the city this summer with eclectic sounds and tunes, for the fifth consecutive year is Brookfield’s FIGat7th Downtown Festival. The event’s
highly anticipated return is presented by Arts Brookfield, the cultural arm of Brookfield Property Partners. The festival opens on Friday, August 4th and will run weekly at downtown L.A.’s
premiere shopping destination, FIGat7th. The center’s outdoor plaza will be reimagined as an intimate concert venue for four Friday nights in August with performances by leading pop, rock,
soul, funk, folk and alternative artists.

The FIGat7th Downtown Festival is free and open to the public as part of Arts Brookfield’s continued effort to bring Brookfield’s public spaces to life through visual and performing arts.
Kicking off the festival is Los Angeles’ hit funk-dance duo, Tuxedo, comprised of singer Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One. Hot on the heels of Tuxedo is the raunch ‘n’ roll
singer-songwriter Hanni El Khatib on August 11. The New York-based band Sinkane follows on August 18, introducing a cocktail of progressive funk rock and Sudanese pop. The festival closes
out with another L.A. music staple, Quetzal, who peppers their fiery mix of Mexican musica ranchera and salsa with socially conscious Chicano rock and R&B.

 

 

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 4:00 p.m. for a DJ Happy Hour with NONA
ENTERTAINMENT in the TASTE Food Hall Courtyard where a variety of excellent eateries
and chef-driven concepts are offered. The festivities will move upstairs at 7:00 p.m. for more fun
beats as local DJs warm up the crowd before the talented, internationally recognized headliners
take the stage.
FIGat7th Downtown Festival’s unique lineup reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the city and
the cultural and creative center that downtown L.A. has become!

VieVité Cotes de Provence Highlights Its Summer Rosé Offering

VieVité Cotes de Provence Highlights Its Summer Rosé Offering

Southern California offers some of the best weather around which allows us to fully enjoy our summer parties and outings like no other city could.  When pairing the right elements to SoCal summer fun, you have to consider one of the most important choices of all, your wine selection.  This summer’s offering from VieVité Cotes de Provence would be their lavishly delicious French Rosé offered in two variables: the lighter and refreshing VieVité and the VieVité Extraordinaire coming in a limited cask.

VieVité is produced from grapevines averaging 25 years old, and offers a fresh and
delicate aroma of cherries and strawberries coupled with notes of spice to create a
satisfying sensation on the palate with a forward fruit nose of peach, grape and apricot.

VieVité Extraordinaire is sourced from 80-year grapevines and produced in smaller
quantities, capturing the attention of true rosé connoisseurs for its opulent fruit flavors
and exuberant panache. This deliciously vibrant Rosé delights with its intense and wellbalanced
fruit flavors, dominant with strawberries and berries, and structured with an
intensity that highlights the old vines it is made from. Both wines have been declared as
exceptional examples of true Cotes De Provence Rosé by wine lovers and critics alike.”

 

VieVité is available across all of Southern California in stores like Pavilions, Whole Foods Market, Vons, Bristol Farms, and Gelsons.  Be sure to enjoy a bottle of this Rosé during your next brunch party, poolside lounge, beach outing, or just because it’s Summer!
