Millennium Biltmore Hotel Tree Lighting & Tour | 12.04.13

Wednesday, December 4, 2013. DTLA Rendezvous Premium Members visited the Millennium Biltmore Hotel for Happy Hour, their annual tree lighting ceremony, and a special private tour of the hotel.

Members met at Bugis Street Brasserie, the hotel's Singaporean-Chinese Restaurant, between 5-5:45pm to enjoy their Happy Hour.
Above: Some members had the Roasted Duck Tacos and Chicken & Shrimp Siu Mai as well as the Shrimp Tempura (not in photo). Everyone enjoyed the food they ordered and I personally enjoyed the $3 wine on Happy Hour.
Bugis Street HHBugis Street Brasserie Happy Hour Menu as of 12.04.13.
We then walked over to the Lobby of the hotel to catch their annual tree lighting ceremony and enjoyed some complimentary cookies, hot chocolate, and cider!
We had a great turn out of old & new members for the event!
Our extensively knowledgeable tour guide, Steve!

Steve has worked at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel for 20+ years and you can tell he just loves it! He told us so many stories about the hotel and each room we visited. He even brought his own materials to share with us! If you stop by, keep an eye out for him in the Lobby/public areas and feel free to ask him some questions about the hotel.
Our 1+ hour tour was absolutely amazing and everyone enjoyed it! We can't wait to return to the hotel for more Happy Hours, afternoon tea, and next year's tree lighting ceremony!

R.A.D.D. Bike Ride & Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk | Weekly on Wednesday Evenings

On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, DTLA Rendezvous joined residents of the Arts District for the weekly R.A.D.D. (Residents of the Arts District & Downtown) bike ride and walk.  The Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk was led by resident Scot Ezzell and the R.A.D.D. bike club was led by Melissa Richardson Banks of Downtown Muse.


The walkers met at Pie Hole at 6:30pm and our first stop was the Traction Triangle at Bloom Square where Sci-Arc's Earthwave Installation was put up just days before.


We then walked around the neighborhood a bit and saw amazing art all over the walls.  This one (above) was my favorite!  Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to tell you where this is.


We met up with the bikers at their meeting spot at 7pm at Eat. Drink. Americano.
When both groups were done with the biking & walking, we all went back to eat, drink, and mingle!


Bikers led by Melissa Richardson Banks and ready to go!


After some walking, we somehow met up with the bikers again at Handsome Coffee, where, on Wednesdays from 5-8pm, The Produce Project has their weekly Pop-Up Farmstand bringing in hand selected & locally sourced produce!


Baskets of olallieberries, raspberries, and mulberries that Melissa purchased and shared with us.  Thank you Melissa!


Last stop was a special presentation at TRACTIONARTS, a video venue/window on Traction Avenue that features artistic videos that rotate every 2 weeks.  We saw the Childhood Bedroom by Beatriz Cortez.

Join the R.A.D.D. (Residents of the Arts District & Downtown) for a bike ride and the Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk every Wednesday evening and explore the Downtown LA Arts District!
