  • Brazilian Bomba By: Jenn Tanaka | photography by ralph palumbo
    Southern Californians enjoy our fair share of Latin libations notably the margarita and mojito. But if you’re feeling a bit blasé about the standards, it’s time to step up to the caipirinha.

  • Gay Old Time By: Jodie Tillman | photography by leonard Ortiz
    It was bingo night at Main Street Bar & Cabaret, Laguna Beach’s last gay club. Techno music chugged; strobe lights blinked.

    On a Friday morning in late January, I wound one of my 7-year-old daughter’s blond hairnets around my stub of a ponytail and anchored the small bun with several hairpins (also on loan). A leotard was more of an issue. Nostalgia was responsible for my saving a collection of Dance France styles for two decades. But my black spaghetti-strap f
