Restaurant Spotlight: Church Key on the Sunset Strip

Let’s get one thing straight - Church Key is NOT an Asian Fusion restaurant, though you are not alone if you thought it was. They have a menu of “Modern American Cuisine,” which ranges from small plates of English Pea “hummus” to Oysters and larger plate of Potato Pierogies and Ribeye Steak for two. There are four “dim sum style” carts but they are laden with rolls, cocktails, and other non-Chinese foods. One is even an OG drink-cart from Pan-Am, complete w a girl dressed in the iconic blue uniform (probably from the shortlived TV show, not the actual airline). While it gets an A for execution, it was stylistically incongruous with the beautifully and tastefully neutral-toned interior.

But back to the food. The diverse menu was delicious, and i was overjoyed to spot my favorite beer, Duchesse de Bourgogne on the well-rounded beer list. While the inventive cocktail list was hit or miss,
they have a well-stocked bar and a willing bartender who will make bespoke drinks, even if your server doesn't know what that means.

Whether you want to partake in “the scene” at this well-appointed, delicious new-ish place on Sunset Strip on a Friday night or go with friends on a weeknight, it is worth the traffic.

BEAUTIFUL RIGHTS Gives Women’s Rights Some Real Lip Service

Beautiful Rights is here to give women’s rights some real lip service. This new, cause-driven makeup initiative, founded by renowned makeup artist and product developer, Kristen Therese Leonard, was created to ensure that women’s rights continue to be given their share of voice in our country’s future.

As we enter into 2017, real concerns regarding women’s rights are upon us. Beautiful Rights was created to remind every woman to speak up, and that the responsibility lies within each of us to protect the rights we’ve fought so hard to acquire.

Beautiful Rights will promote women’s rights by donating 20% of all sales (not profits) to organizations that support our causes, such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Emily’s List, Lambda Legal and Legal Momentum. The 20% contribution is set as a reminder of the fact that women in the U.S. still get paid 20% less than men for doing the same work.

Not only will Beautiful Rights fuel great initiatives, it will also provide women with top-of-line…
