Caroline on CrackIn case you weren’t following along on my Instagram feed, this is a mere roundup of what I drank this week. My drinking adventures took me to the new Pearl’s Liquor Bar on Sunset Boulevard, the Santa Monica Pier for a wine tasting with a side of Whac-a-Mole and the Corner Door for a sneak peek of the upcoming fall cocktail menu. H’yeah, I’m taking it easy this week to save my liver for the epic two-person bar hop I’m doing in Seattle this weekend. Monday Pearl’s Liquor Bar Manhattan When checking out a new bar I like ordering a Manhattan because it’s an effective way to gauge how they do cocktails there. Do they shake ‘em? Which bourbon or rye do they use? I admit I didn’t have high hopes for Pearl’s Liquor Room in terms of cocktails simply because they’re owned by the same folks behind sports bar Rock and Reilly’s Irish Pub next door. Not a bad thing, it’s just a different crowd with a different focus. Anyway, the comparatively quieter and classier Pearl’s actually has a cocktail menu that they admit is aimed “toward the ladies” since, by their reasoning, men will naturally gravitate toward their whiskey and craft beer lists. Since those house drinks are too sweet for my taste, I tried their Manhattan during a hosted tasting. Turned out it’s not at all like I prefer my Manhattans. Here, it’s a mix of Maker’s Mark, Carpano Antica and a maraschino cherry. What about the Angostura bitters, you ask? Yeah, I asked that, too, but that’s not how they make ‘em here. At least they stirred it. And the view over Sunset Boulevard from the best seat in the house helped lots, too. Gordon Ramsey at the London’s Last Ward Afterward, I elbowed past David Spade, who was hanging out by Pearl’s entrance (apparently he goes there a lot), to the London Bar at the London West Hollywood. Wanted to check out the cocktails as I hadn’t been there in awhile. My fave L.A. bartender Damian Windsor actually used to work there years ago. That’s gotta count for something, right? On a Monday night the bar was quiet, save for a group of raucous friends and a couple on the other end of the bar who were annoyed by the raucous friends. A quick scan of the specialty cocktail menu told me I wanted the Last Ward ($16), a cocktail with bourbon, Green Chartreuse, lime and a maraschino cherry. I was emboldened by the fact that the bartender said it was his favorite drink. This variation on the Last Word was still refreshing and well-balanced but those ice chips were jarring. Guess they don’t fine-strain at the London. Tuesday If anyone is wondering how to launch a new wine, follow Apothic Wines‘ lead. The wine company rented the Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier to introduce their new limited release 2012 Apothic Dark wine to the media. We were wined and entertained, treated to blind tastings of the Apothic wines as well as amusement park rides and carnival games. As you can see from the above video, wine and Whac-a-Mole do not mix. The winery did offer their other wines — the Red and the White — at the event but the general consensus favored the new Dark with its smooth, richer flavors of dark chocolate and blackberries. It’s an everyday quaffer and what you’d expect for $14 a bottle. We enjoyed the Dark while on the Ferris wheel, refilled and knocked it back before jumping on the rollercoaster. By the way, drinking wine and riding the free-falling Sea Dragon Swing is NOT a good idea. Erp! Anyway, that had to be the most fun I’ve ever had at a wine tasting. Wednesday Harajuku at Hinoki & the Bird Wednesday was schmancy day as my friend Jen Len and I met up for dinner at Hinoki & The Bird with plans to hit up the bar at Hakkasan Beverly Hills after. I hadn’t returned to David Myers’ Century City restaurant Hinoki since it opened back in January; i

"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm has been nominated for eleven Emmy awards — and lost them all. "Parks and Recreation" actress Amy Poehler has been nominated nine times — she too has walked away empty handed every time. In order to celebrate their losses after Sunday's Emmy Awards, Hamm and Poehler hosted a Losers Lounge at Soho House following the telecast. And the losers came out in droves, including the hosts' pals Jimmy Kimmel, Elisabeth Moss, David Spade, Fred Armisen and January Jones. But if a winner showed up to the bash, they were required to cough up a donation to the Worldwide Orphans fund. By the end of the night, the loser squad raised almost $20,000 for the cause. If you think the party was a joke by Hamm and Poehler, check out the very serious invite sent out below (via THR): SEE ALSO: Jon Stewart Surprises Stephen Colbert To Mock Congratulate Him On Emmy Win Join the conversation about this story »

Netflix is a revolving door of movie and television content, particularly on the streaming side of things. Though titles often disappear from availability, new ones are also frequently added. Sometimes these come in the form of Netflix original shows or even exclusive access to certain programming, but sometimes it’s just older titles that many find to be still worth watching. Content is added to Netflix streaming each week, and it can be difficult to keep up with what’s available all the time. With that, here’s a look at some new additions. Note: This is for the U.S. The past week has been great for horror movies and TV shows on Netflix. In the upcoming week, subscribers will be getting a bunch of Disney content and documentaries, as well as a Netflix-exclusive stand-up special from Kathleen Madigan, and finally the Netflix debut of Ricky Gervais’ Derek. Here are some of the titles you’ll soon see appearing. Available 9/9: Kronk’s New Groove (2005) Patrick Warburton, Tracey Ullman, Eartha Kitt, David Spade, John Goodman, Wendie Malick, John Mahoney, Anthony Ghannam, Gatlin Green Kronk, the sorceress Yzma’s bodybuilder assistant, grabs the spotlight in this animated sequel.

Lilo & Stitch (2002) Daveigh Chase, Chris Sanders, Tia Carrere, David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald, Ving Rhames, Zoe Caldwell, Jason Scott Lee, Kevin Michael Richardson A lonely Hawaiian girl named Lilo — who’s being raised by her older sister after their parents die — adopts a funny-looking dog and names him “Stitch,” not realizing her new best friend is, in fact, a wacky alien created by a mad scientist. Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch (2005) Chris Sanders, Dakota Fanning, Tia Carrere, David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald, Kunewa Mook, Jason Scott Lee Just as rowdy alien Stitch begins settling in with his new adopted family, he suddenly goes haywire: It seems his molecular structure is off-kilter, restoring his destructive behavior. Can plucky island girl Lilo find a way to set things right? Stitch! The Movie (2003) Daveigh Chase, Chris Sanders, Tia Carrere, David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald, Ving Rhames, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jeff Bennett Knowing he’s not alone in the universe, Stitch, also known as Experiment 626, is joined by Lilo, Pleakley and Jumba as he sets out to free the other 625 alien experiments (including a lazy sandwich maker and an electrical havoc-wreaker).
