This Memorial Day weekend we’ll be kicking back and hanging out by the Scion-turned-grill manned by the fine gentlemen of Seoul Sausage. If you find yourself in Los Angeles on Memorial Day Monday, stop by Seoul Sausage from Noon-5pm as they debut their new signature Korean BBQ plates. Of course, their renowned sausages and balls will also be ready to enter your face. Fellow Great Food Truck Race Season 3 alum Under The Crust will also be out slinging their delicious homemade mini pies.

Deals are great. We love them. But sometimes, group deals end up as massive cluster-, er, jams when really you were expecting to enjoy something new and convenient for a bargain price. Enter Truffl. Unlike some free-for-all deal sites, Truffl is a members only site offering intimate and exclusive experiences hosted by industry-leading tastemakers based around food & drink, art, fashion, design and music.
We’ve teamed up with Truffl for their Launch Event happening this Saturday in the Hollywood Hills which will showcase dining, mixology, design, music and art experiences that will be the norm for Truffl offers moving forward. The Launch Event will feature two of our favorite restaurants: Jitlada and Umami Burger! For more info on the Truffl Launch Event, membership and other offerings from Truffle head to TRUFFL.la.

For the last 40 years, hungry New Yorkers have flocked to the 9th Avenue International Food Festival at the beginning of each Spring. The festival celebrates New York City’s prosperous and diverse food culture and cuisine right in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen, just a stone’s throw from Times Square. Since 1973, the festival has closed down 9th Ave. from 42nd to 57th Street to traffic as over a million people celebrate NYC’s ethnic diversity through food, entertainment and every kind of street fair stall in one of the city’s most diverse neighborhoods. Make plans to head down to Hell’s Kitchen on May 18th and 19th from Noon-5pm and eat your way through a New York City tradition with a Singha in hand. See you there!
40th Annual 9th Avenue International Food Festival

9th Avenue from 42nd to 57th Street
Subway: A,C,E 42 St Port Authority Bus Terminal; C,E 50 St; A,B,C,D,1,9 @ 59 St
It’s heating up and that means it’s time to break out the sunscreen (we encourage responsible tanning along with responsible drinking) and swimsuit. One problem with lounging in a bikini is the lack of, well, many things, but most importantly pockets or anywhere to store a bottle opener. But with this simple bikini life hack you can be fashionable, functional and the most popular person at the beach or pool party. Head over to this Instructables howto and see how to turn your bikini into a Beerkini. Enjoying Singha just got a whole lot sexier.
Unlimited beers? Silent disco party? The best food truck the city has to offer? Sounds like LiveinSocial’s touring BeerFest is starting back up once again. It’s first stop: Washington DC. Taking over the Fairgrounds Container Park on the weekend of May 4th and 5th, the LivingSocial BeerFest will feature over 50 breweries including Singha. Unlimited pours all day along with live performances by Drop Electric, Ghost Beach and Kristen and The Noise will sure get your booty shaking. Feeling a bit selfish for taking a day to drink and party with friends? Then bring a bunch of non-perishable food items to donate to LivingSocial’s charity partner Move For Hunger. Not a bad way to kick of Spring. For more information and to purchase tickets head over the the LivingSocial BeerFest page here.
The 2013 Songkran Thai New Year Festival in Hollywood’s Thai Town was amazing this year. Thanks to everyone that came out and celebrated with us, enjoyed a Singha, watched Muay Thai fights, cheered during the beauty pageant and ate up all of LA’s best Thai food. If you weren’t able to make it, check out the video to see what you missed. See you all again next year.

In light of the recent events that happened at the Boston Marathon, we’d like to offer our thoughts and support to those affected by the tragedy. As more information is being gathered about explosions, rescue organizations have been hard at work tending to victims in the area. Singha fans, please show your support in whatever way you can. Here are some ways to help:
The Red Cross – Get in touch with loved ones through its Safe And Well Listings. The organization is not asking for blood donations at this time.
The Salvation Army – They’ve deployed four mobile feeding kitchens and more than 30 volunteers to dispense food, drinks and emotional support in Boston. One canteen is stationed at the Family Assistance Center at the Park Plaza Castle where survivors and first responders are congregating.
Google’s Person Finder – Google’s tool set up a page specifically for Boston marathon victims to look up or submit information about the injured
Boston Police Help Line – Family members looking for information about individuals injured during the incident are encouraged to call (617) 635-4500.
“It’s kind of like a speakeasy kind of thing. It’s kinda cool. It’s like you’re in on some kind of secret, you know?”
Wise words from John Favreau’s character in “Swingers” and it still rings true today. Take Little Serow in Washington DC for example. Named one of Bon Appetit’s Hot 10, ranked by GQ as one the Most Outstanding Restaurants in the US and has been one of the Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants in 2012 and 2013, but if it wasn’t eager line of customers outside the signless, basement-level restaurant you might never know it existed. They also don’t take reservations and the prix fixe, family-style menu changes weekly. The only recommendation we can give you is to get there before their 5:30 opening time or be prepared to wait a while. Once seated, order up a Singha and get ready for a one-of-a-kind Northern/Northeastern Thai food experience care of Chef-Owner/Thai food mastermind Johnny Monis.
The Songkran festivities just keep on rolling. After an awesome time celebrating and partying in Hollywood’s Thai Town we’re headed up the coast to Northern California for the Songkran Thai New Year festival in San Jose. We’ll be setting up a Singha Beer Garden so you can knock back a few cold ones while enjoying the water blessing ceremony, Muay Thai kickboxing, tons of food trucks and lots more. For more information about the San Jose Songkran Thai New Year Festival, head to their website: ThaiNorCal.org.
