Fitt Los Angeles

Fitt’s weekly rundown has been a total life saver to us lately. With everything from home workout recommendations to “social distancing dance parties,” their A+ content is bound to perk you up.

We Like L.A.

We don’t just like, we love this newsletter for featuring restaurants that are now also acting as grocery stores—an immensely smart move for the food service industry. They support local businesses and even feature chefs who offer recipes and free online cooking classes at the moment.

Love & Loathing L.A.

Love & Loathing L.A. blogger Caroline Juen spoke to our soul this week with her at-home cocktails feature in her newsletter. She also completely gets that we’re trying to avoid the #Corona20 and made sure to include only low-cal options.

*TAP OPEN IN IGTV TO BE ABLE TO SEE DIRECTIONS 🤗* . Desperate times friends! But the good news is cocktails – really good ones – do not have to be complicated to make on your own. In your favorite “Quarantine Chic” look might I add 💁🏼‍♀️. These are a few of my absolute favorite: . *3-4 ingredient *low calorie *accessible ingredients *and f*!%ing delicious cocktails. . Which include: . SKINNY MEZCAL MARGARITA (which you can obviously sub for Tequila) – I love @delmagueymezcal – but also Montelobos/El Silencio/Dos Hombres 🍈 (is that a lime?) . APEROL SPRITZ (great for helping mentally transport yourself to a vacation, @aperolusa) – Prosecco is always pretty affordable too 🙌🍹 . GOLD RUSH-ISH (because I have a secret add on) – I love @EagleRareBourbon and that’s about it for me 😂 kidding kind of 🥃 . LEMON DROP (not the tacky overly sweet kind, like the one me and @celestethomas made a few months back!!) – I love @BelvedereVodka and I have my giant bottle to prove it 🍸🍋 . All of these ingredients *should* be available at your grocery store, but don’t forget @postmates and @sauceyapp deliver alcohol and other accoutrements too! . Thank you for watching my Sunday afternoon project, 🤣🙏🍹 NOW GO FORTH! CHEERS!! . #cocktailsathome #cocktailvideo #howtovideo #easycocktails #imbibe #cheers #drinkstagram #happyhourathome #mixology #mezcal #aperolspritz #vodka #bourbon #funathome

Buzzbands L.A.

Buzzbands, who kills it on the regular anyway, has started a series in their newsletter called “Quarantunes,” which sees L.A. artists sharing what they’re doing to preserve their sanity during this time, along with a playlist of their current favorite jams. It also includes a daily roundup series of concerts you can livestream, aptly called “Notes on a Pandemic.”

Do L.A.

This wouldn’t be a “best” list without our most beloved newsletter, Do L.A. They’ve now shifted their focus to illuminating ways to help the community, donations for musicians and more. We were saddened to hear this week that they’re struggling to stay afloat through all this. If you can support them in any way, be sure to do so HERE.
