A series of retail pop ups celebrating the sophisticated cannabis enthusiast is launching next month in Los Angeles. PIPE DREAM LA, a collaboration between gallerist and designer Astrelle Johnquest and wardrobe stylist Michael Cioffoletti, will showcase an elevated approach to embracing the emerging marketplace for legal cannabis consumption. The first pop up will come to life inside Wittmore, the fashion and lifestyle shop located in the arts district of downtown Los Angeles.
"Our PIPE DREAM LA pop-up will present a tightly curated edit of our favorite artist and maker-made cannabis pipes,“ said Michael Cioffoletti.“Plus a special selection of ashtrays, vessels, rolling trays, and incense holders.”
“We are redefining the image of the modern pot smoker with our collection of chic objects and smoking utensils for the design-minded cannabis enthusiast,” added Astrelle Johnquest.
Wittmore is hosting PIPE DREAM LA Friday–Sunday, June 8–10 during normal business hours from 11am–7pm.
Johnquest and Cioffoletti will toast their new endeavor with a special evening of cocktails and shopping on Friday June 8, from 7pm–9pm. The event is open to the public.
Wittmore is located at 300 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90013. Free parking is available with validation in the surface lot at One Santa Fe.
Come join DARK+STORMY in our new hometown. One of the best kept secrets in California remains the quaint “Aspen like” village of Pine Mountain Club. Located in the Los Padres National Forest, at an elevation of a little over a mile above sea level and nestled between Mt. Pinos and San Emigdio Mountain, PMC will be hosting their 36th Annual Lilac Festival.
Begun in 1982 as a way to forget winter and welcome the approaching summer, the Lilac Festival started as little more than a bake sale and a Maypole Dance, and has grown into a full-fledged Mountain tradition. The Lilac was chosen as a centerpiece for the Festival because it thrives in our mountain climate, and its short flowering season falls roughly at the same time as the Festival.
Over 100 Arts & Crafts booths will be open all day, along with international food vendors, restaurants and unique shops, live music throughout the Festival, and an amusement area for kids.
