Colorful Mother’s Day Celebration Happy Hour
The Social Type x ORLY Color Labs invite you and your mom on May 4th to create your custom nail polish at the ORLY Color Labs. Enjoy complimentary calligraphy by Aspacia Kusulas of Kous Design, and manicures (purchase required) – $5 of each sale is donated to Elizabeth House (non-profit that supports pregnant women who lack adequate shelter and prenatal care). To RSVP, click here.
*Need to ship your color and card? ORLY Color Labs will ship it for you anywhere in the continental U.S. (Your mom’s going to love it.)
Amazon Prime Experience
On May 4th, join Amazon Prime Video and Los Angeles Confidential for a conversation with stunt coordinator Jean Frenette (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan). He will discuss what it takes behind the scenes to create the breathtaking stunts on television and movies. Frenette will teach guests stunt choreography. Afterward, attendees can visit the Amazon Prime Experience installations, which are dedicated to the Amazon shows up for the Emmy’s For Your Consideration (FYC). It’s FYC season in LA, which means studios invite Academy members to lavish events to promote their shows for the Emmys. This is the only event in May (that I know of) open to the public.
