GLENDALE—Happy Birthday, Pressed Juicery! The local cold-pressed juice chain is celebrating five years in business Tuesday and all locations in California and Nevada, including the new location at The Americana at Brand (889 Americana Way), are offering an extra special gift to customers to mark the occasion: $5 juice! Patrons will be able to stop by and snag bottles for the discounted price through Saturday, so bring on the Greens 1 (and the Vanilla Almond Milk...and the seasonal Pomegranate Persimmon Apple...and...well, you get the idea)!
ECHO PARK—We can always count on creative retail/community space Otherwild to host mystical workshops that are geared to make us feel powerfully female, spiritual, and often wonderfully witchy. Tuesday's offering is no exception. Learn the meditative practice of beeswax candle making from Hannah Vainstein of Santa Barbara's similarly-minded studio/shop The Lower Lodge. The multi-disciplinary artist not only shows the slow, rhythmic technique, but also informs attendees about the energy releasing and detoxifying properties of burning beeswax during the 7-9pm hands-on tutorial. The class costs $85 and you can purchase tickets here. Guests will get to leave with as many pairs of candles that they manage to create in the time frame, which means you'll be all set for a moody soiree or romantic night in.
