Hosted at The Peppermint Club and sponsored by Remy Martin, Trip CBD, and Avión Tequila, the event takes place on Thursday, October 27th, making its highly anticipated return to LA’s nightlife scene to deliver the most sought-after, costume-clad event of the season.
An iconic evening that – over its 10-year tenure – has become synonymous with its equally iconic guest list, will be an exclusive, invite-only affair featuring a signature performance by Café Wha House Band. Flying in every year from Greenwich Village’s Swingingest Coffee House, Café Wha has historically housed some of the worlds greatest musical talent at the onset of their careers, including the likes of: Woody Allen, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and more.
Since its inception, special guests (such as Matthew Morrison, Adam Lambert, Nathan Sykes, Darren Criss, Lucas Grabeel and Kevin McHale) have also jumped on stage with the band to perform during the party. Other VIPs who have historically attended include Chace Crawford, Paris Hilton, Taylor Lautner, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale, Colton Haynes, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Niall Horn, Tyler Hoechlin, Joey Fatone and beyond.
It will be yet another night to remember, complete with thrills and chills just before Halloween weekend kicks off.
If you’re looking for a place to knock out hunger pangs while also taking in this season’s spooky vibes, there’s something new to put on your radar.
On October 21, Roberta’s announced the official opening of its second Los Angeles location in Studio City, with the news of their “Opening Fright” Grand Opening Party on Thursday, October 27 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. With costumes encouraged, and complimentary food and drinks being served, it’s a deliciously spooky kick off for the iconic Brooklyn brand.
Roberta’s Studio City is an elevated casual evolution of its famed original restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. The restaurant at The Shops at Sportsmen’s Lodge highlights Roberta’s legendary pizza creations, along with a specially curated menu of signature dishes, natural wine, and craft beer.
Whether it’s the simple Margherita (tomato, mozzarella, basil, evoo) or the fan favorite Famous Original (tomato, mozzarella, parmigiano, caciocavallo, oregano, chili) that rarely leaves the menu, pies at Roberta’s Studio City are all based on the original recipe developed in 2008, delivering a pliable, flavorful crust, a sauce that does its job exactly right, and mozzarella that is the perfect balance of creamy and salty. From the Bee Sting (tomato, mozzarella, soppressata, basil, chili, honey) to the Crispy Glover (tomato, taleggio, guanciale, red onion, garlic, breadcrumb, chili) to the Baby Sinclair (dinosaur kale, maitake mushroom, caciocavallo, parmigiano, Calabrian chili), Roberta’s pizzas exhibit the stunning creativity that becomes possible when a killer foundational recipe meets culinary-genius level experimentation.
Guests of Roberta’s Studio City order at the counter, with food delivered to their tables. In addition to pizza, the tightly edited menu offers veggies in the form of Smashed Cucumbers (roasted garlic, Calabrian chili, mixed seeds and market herbs) and Green Lettuces (soft herbs, pumpkin seed, sea lettuce vinaigrette, caper breadcrumb, fiore sardo), sandwiches including Italian Comboand Peppered Roast Beef & Horseradish, along with an assortment of other signature items including House Made Stracciatella, Buttered Radishes, and Giardiniera. A curated menu of natural wines, craft beers, and non-alcoholic beverages are available to enjoy for a quick bite or over a long leisurely meal.
While certainly inspired by Italian tradition, the Roberta’s wood-fired crust is sturdy and chewy, able to withstand eating with one’s hands while being perfectly suited for the locally sourced, inspired topping combinations for which Roberta’s has become world famous. Each 12” pie is considered an individual serving size; buy one for yourself or a few to share with friends. The entire menu can be enjoyed at the restaurant or ordered to go.
