Taste On Melrose is one of LA’s hippest brunch spots. Ultra chic Hollywood hopefuls alongside of handcrafted cocktails with a Kobe burger make this place popping. Yet, the sweet tasting crispy bacon inside a viscous side of macaroni and cheese still isn’t enough to cover up some of the front of house issues. With no reservations, expect to wait up to an hour or so. Once seated, our beverages and appetizers still didn’t make it to our table until another hour. Don’t fret because management is cognizant of their spotty service and will amend your bill to make up for any misadventures. Nevertheless, this Parisian-style sidewalk dining experience is still worthy of your patronage, especially if you have a flair for fashion and enjoy people watching.
Rise & Shine! Beach-Themed Brunch Bash to Hit Cityscape On January 20th
Because Arizona Loves Brunch!
If the promise of bloodies, beach chairs and benedicts isn’t enough reason to get up and out of bed in the morning, then there’s more good news – they’ll all be for grabs in the afternoon and its for a good cause.
Brunch Bash benefiting one-n-ten is set for 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018, at Cityscape in Downtown Phoenix. This celebration of the ultimate breakfast and lunch mashup will serve as solid proof that the best parties don’t always happen once the sun goes down. In addition to an “anything goes” brunch lineup boasting the best of both daytime meals, Brunch Bash will offer a beach theme, complete with sand, games and plenty to sip on.
We are partnering with One N Ten for this great event to support their efforts in the LGBTQ community. A portion from the proceeds will benefit this charity dedicated to assisting the youth in the community.
What can you expect at this fabulous event? Expect a variety of brunch foods in sample size to allow you to taste a little of everything, indulge in our cereal bar and feel like a kid again or sip or sweet and savory cocktails like mimosas, bloody marys, screwdrivers and more. Don’t forget to wear your flip flops as a Brunch Bash wouldn’t be complete without sand. We are rolling in the sand with lounge chairs, beach balls and more.
Looking for a VIP experience? The Sunset Lounge will have infused bloody mary drinks, cocktails and foods catered by Blue Hound Kitchen and Cocktails. Plus a private beach area.
Attendees can anticipate music performances from top local acts like Hourglass Cats and Sugar Thieves, a Sunset Lounge area for VIPers and a sunset champagne toast, among additional draws.

In honor of Dia de los Muertos, Tequila CAZADORES, a 100% pure agave tequila from Bacardi, has partnered with legendary tattoo artist Mister Cartoon (whose work can be found on the likes of Beyoncé, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Kobe Bryant and more) to create a limited-edition bottle design.
Cartoon has also created a set of skull bandanas – inspired by illustrations from the bottle – that will be available through MisterCartoon.com/shop. The three bandana designs are custom for California, Texas, and New York. All proceeds from the bandana sales will be donated to earthquake disaster relief efforts in Mexico.
The Mister Cartoon X Tequila CAZADORES Día de los Muertos bottle is adorned in symbolic black, white and gray artwork, with illustrations of a skull to honor the memories of lost loved ones, a rose to welcome new beginnings and a woman to represent love and the importance of celebrating the good times. The Tequila CAZADORES iconic stag is part of the design as a reminder to be bold and fearless in the pursuit of dreams.
