Pipes and Limes

HLA Piperlime-2

HLA Piperlime


We love themes. When Cara Events, Inc called us with an event for Piperlime, an online clothing shop, and asked us for a special menu, our chef, Matt, came up with food with pipe shapes and lime flavors for an event they hosted at Smog Shoppe in Culver City.


HLA Garden Party


Our Garden Party (see recipe here) was the specialty cocktail of the evening since it features, well, lime, and vodka, cucumber, celery, basil syrup and rhubarb bitters.
