Here's a throwback to anyone who's ever asked if we accept cash, because oddly it gets asked a lot. 🤔 #tbt

If I had a dollar for every bro that's walked in the bookstore callin' himself Darcy... 🤔#Repost @theonion ・・・ “Jesus, will all these women just go away and let me enjoy Pride And Prejudice without being constantly interrupted,” said local man Russell Goldin, explaining that just because he’s smiling and shaking his head as he reads the book in view of female bar patrons doesn’t mean he wants to be hit on. “Every single time I start becoming enraptured by an exquisitely rendered piece of British drollery, I’m pulled out of it by some lady trying to ask me what I’m reading. I came here to drink red wine and be transported to the world of the 18th-century British landed gentry, not make flirtatious small talk.” #TheOnion

FRIDAY, 01/19: SKATEBOARDING LA WITH GREG SNYDER 8PM . . The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Greg Snyder and his new book looking at Los Angeles-based professional street skateboarders. Join us to hear more about skateboarding in LA as Greg is joined by professional skaters profiled in the book. . Skateboarding LA explores the world of professional street skateboarding: a highly refined, athletic and aesthetic pursuit, from which a large number of people profit. Based on over eight years of research in Los Angeles, this ethnographic study offers a first-hand understanding of this complex and often misunderstood subculture. Sociologist Gregory Snyder provides a history of skateboarding, an understanding of basic and complex tricks, a tour of some of LA’s most famous spots and an enthusiastic appreciation of this high-flying sport. . Particularly concerned with public spaces, Snyder shows that skateboarding can offer cities much more than petty vandalism and exaggerated claims of destruction. Rather, skateboarding draws highly talented young people from around the globe to skateboarding cities, building a diverse and wide-reaching community of skateboarders, filmmakers, photographers, writers, and entrepreneurs. Further, Snyder argues skateboarders can help to keep public courtyards and parks free from unwanted urban traffic, like homeless encampments or drug dealers. In one stunning case featured in the book, Snyder shows how skateboarders transformed the West LA Courthouse into a public skate park, even sponsored by Nike. . Through interviews with numerous current and former professional skateboarders, Snyder vividly shows their passion, dedication, and creativity. Especially in relation to the city’s architectural features—ledges, banks, gaps, stairs and handrails—they are constantly re-imagining and repurposing these urban spaces in order to perform their ever-increasingly difficult tricks. For anyone interested in this dynamic and daunting activity Skateboarding LA is an amazing ride.

TONIGHT, 01/10: CANNABIS CUISINE: BUD PAIRINGS OF A BORN AGAIN CHEF 7:30PM . The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Andrea Drummer and her debut cookbook Cannabis Cuisine: Pairings of a Born Again Chef. From the comforts of southern kitchens to the upscale stoves of Michelin starred restaurants, each recipe is carefully crafted to elevate both the dish and the cook. In this book, you’ll learn: • The Basics of Pairing Buds • How to Create Unique Butters and Oils to Incorporate in Every Meal • Tips for Elevating Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner . Much more than just a pot cookbook, Cannabis Cuisine elevates marijuana to a fine cuisine. It’s more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. The culinary arts and the science of responsible dosage are presented in a way that treats cannabis as one of the best ingredients in the world to cook with. . Chef Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-op, a Los Angeles–based company that caters high-end, intimate dinner parties ─ AND, she is a world class marijuana chef. In her debut cookbook, chef and author Andrea Drummer guides home cooks through an adventure of the palette. Chef Drummer is a firm believer that the food always comes first. Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. . Please note that our store has limited capacity (a mere 300!), so get here early. . Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase a copy of the author’s title from The Last Bookstore. Any outside books must be checked with security upon entering the store. This policy applies to all Last Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.
