Los Angeles is defined by many things: our food, our culture, our traffic.
So what’s an Angeleno to do when guests come in from out of town and you want to give them a historical food culture tour but there’s just no way you want to spend a day sitting on the freeway?
That’s when it’s time to get social, as in Social Market & Eatery.

A longtime LAX icon that has hosted numerous dignitaries and celebrities is ready to usher in a new age of travel.
Opened in 1973 and one of the flagship hotels in Marriott’s portfolio, the Los Angeles Airport Marriott has completed a $44 million transformation, reemerging as a stylish, ultramodern hub where travelers can make an authentic Los Angeles connection.
Hotel renovations are commonplace in today’s hotel operation landscape. From facelifts to complete overhauls, properties must take the necessary steps to stay up-to-date with current trends and the needs of today’s travelers.
While the impact a redesign has on the hotel guest is often the first area of concern for management, a team should also place emphasis on inspiring and uplifting staff, as it is their overall project knowledge and feelings towards the transformation that ultimately trickles down to the guest.
Few iconic locations appear as proud of their bureaucratic acronym as the Los Angeles International Airport. Known globally as LAX, the main entrance to the airport on Century Boulevard features those three iconic letters standing 50 feet high to greet some 85 million weary passengers annually.
SAM FIRST IS A PASSION PROJECT OF MUSIC, ARCHITECTURE AND CLASSIC COCKTAILS
By Richard Foss
It’s halfway through the first set, and the contrabass player alternates between plucking at his strings and bowing, slapping and strumming them. A trombonist sometimes plays softly and melodically, sometimes unleashes sharp dissonances, and often doesn’t play at all. The pianist’s fingers glide up and down the keyboard, either gently tickling the ivories or pounding crashing chords. The Mark Dresser Trio’s performance is riveting, and the audience is watching with such respect that not a whisper interrupts the quiet passages.
