September = LA at the Drake
Ah, Los Angeles: The Big Orange, The City of Angels, where “All-American Girl” Kelly Kapowski cheered her way into our hearts and Uncle Phil threw Jazzy Jeff out the house one too many times *cue the laugh track*. As always, September delivers the glam to Toronto with TIFF sweeping the streets bringing celeb sightings, invite-only parties, red carpets, and Snapchat gold. As the “What Not to Miss this TIFF” listicles hit your inbox in true 2016 fashion, The Drake’s serving up a different side of LA and trust us, we’re living it up like Angelenos. With all-out-LA guest chef dinners, palm tree playlists, property-wide art installations, exclusive brands direct from LAX, a Drake-d out Airstream trailer, and the carnival of debauchery, A Club Called Rhonda, we’ve got plenty of ways to let your freak fly.
