WLabs Smart Oven w/ Katie Lee

By Krishan Narsinghani × Vaughn Lowery

As of late, 360 MAGAZINE paid a visit to the newly imagined Kim Sing Theatre (once the 1926 Vaudeville), which houses an event space, gallery, courtyard as well as hotel.

At this venue, we joined Food Network star, Katie Lee, for the WLabs’ smart oven first look and tasting. Try cooking with an appliance that manages it all for you. Literally, the smart oven can tell what’s inside and let you know when it’s done using a new camera and sensor detector technologies. Witnessing Katie Lee fit a whole chicken inside this 13.5” H x 19.5” W x 21” with a magnetic thermometer (conveniently sticks on the side of the unit) was a shock, more so, that she was alerted by the app on her phone it was ready. Not to mention, the counter space you’ll save in a small galley kitchen within an urbane habitat. De-hydrate limes for handcrafted cocktails, roast asparagus or reheat/bake a 12″ pizza. The personal assistant makes your life in kitchen that much easier. So, take a long shower or a soothing bath with no worries.

In short, the innovative WLabs Smart Oven is ideal for a budding executive who resides in a metropolis and is always in transit swinging from city to urban center while on various assignments. Or, for empty nesters who like to entertain intimate yet memorable parties where this appliance will surely be the center attention.

Merely 2,000 of these bad boys are available for pre-order here.

EXCHANGE LA

By Vaughn Lowery

Exchange LA [EXLA] is one of Los Angeles’ premier performance venues with an occupancy of 1500 people – it’s architecturally stimulating with a Vegas-style ambience.

Lots of A-list celebrities, top level corporations and Grammy award-winning EDM DJs like Benny Benassi (former 360 cover star) have held celebratory events and/or headlined the space. State-of-the-art sound system alongside of projector screens and pyrotechnics will leave a permanent impression on your cerebral cortex.

‘The Wall’ which sits directly behind the DJ booth is literally loaded with LED clarity.

Unlike many of LA’s emerging venues, Exchange LA offers not only bottle service, but also VIP entry and rooms to savor an intimate night with close friends inside this four story venue. For just approximately a $100 (prices vary every weekend depending on the artist and show) – you’ll receive 3 drink tickets, unlimited non alcoholic beverages with balcony access.

Situated at 618 S. Spring in downtown Los Angeles, this will continue to be one of LA’s best nightlife experiences with an attractive diverse 21+ crowd that’s dressed to impress.

*Formerly the LA Stock Exchange.

Prohibition NYE 2018

‘For once, this past New Year’s Eve wasn’t a blur (no wordplay intended). Taking space at Downtown LA’s historic ticket concourse inside Union Station.’

by Vaughn Lowery 

The best means to enter this venue is through the VIP red carpet so be prepared to get the celebrity treatment for around $200 per person which includes open bar (GA tix are avail as well). After a no nonsense check-in, you’ll be whisked off to the step and repeat for a quick photo. Then, your legs will begin to wiggle your way over to the elevated DJ booth outside where it was like a whimsical LED rainbow-like garden orchestrated by top 40 music. 

Everyone was dolled up in roaring twenties attire and the atmosphere made it feel like we all went back in time. Well, maybe back into 4 bar lines of premium liquor, which caused many of us to become double-fisted (and inebriated but we took the Expo Train line from Downtown Culver City for a $1.75 and an Lyft back for less than $50 during peak hours). 

Our VIP bracelets allowed us access to the actual concourse where the mega screens, top notch concert sound and lighting system were housed. A 60 foot ball drop relaxed above our heads alongside of metallic confetti until the clock struck midnight. Not to mention crow-like characters roamed through the crowd on stilts while a saxophone player jammed to EDM beats.

We proceeded on to another outdoor patio where we enjoyed live burlesque shows where gorgeous antiqued chandeliers hung in a red tent. 

PROHIBITION NYE is LA’s premier party to be at for New Year’s Eve. If you don’t trust us, just purchase a ticket and see for yourselves. This event was put on by McCullough and Ross in partnership with KCRW.

Boogie × Shady Records

SHADY RECORDS SIGNS COMPTON-BORN RAPPER BOOGIE TO ITS ROSTER

Hailing from the Westside of Compton, Boogie grew up in the same city that produced a who’s who of rap’s greatest superstars including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, The Game and YG. Boogie released a series of mixtapes that put the young MC on the map and captured the attention of Interscope Records which then brought interest from Eminem and Shady Records. His second mixtape, The Reach, released in 2015, led Pitchfork to call him “one of the best young rappers in the country” and the LA Times to comment that it features “the kind of vivid, full-fledged production usually reserved for a successful mainstream artist on his or her second or third major-label effort.” 

Boogie is everything I look for in an MC,”, said Eminem. “Unique voice and point of view combined with crazy wordplay. This is a great fit and I’m excited for what’s to come.”

Boogie is currently working on his Shady Records debut.
