Adam Carolla podcast at Amalfi in WeHo
Adam Carolla is a household name in our home. He claims he’s not an ‘A’ list celebrity, and we’re glad because we can easily get tickets to a podcast, and even meet and greet afterwards. Most Wednesdays Adam holds his podcasts at his restaurant, Amalfi, in WeHo. $15 for the show (includes a free glass of Mangria) and great prices on the food menu!
If you’ve never listened to any of Adam Carolla‘s podcasts, this book is a great introduction. I actually don’t really sit down an read too often (who am I kidding–I never read books anymore) so I opted for the audio version—which I think is even better because he goes into crazy rants that aren’t in the book. The book includes his Tijauna adventures in high school and trying to find the “donkey show,” to his crazy friend Ray who would randomly piss on anyone at any given time (even while driving), to not being “qualified” enough to work at Taco Bell. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments for sure!
So the Adam’s story behind the Mangria…“As a nightly consumer of red wine, I was shocked one evening to find I had just half a glass left in the bottle. So I did what any decent alcoholic, ex-con, American would do… I went to the fridge and the liquor cabinet, then poured, mixed and measured. Thus Mangria was born.” Lucky for us, the white Mangria was just released on Cinco de Mayo (at an awesome party at Adam’s house in Malibu which I am now kicking myself for not going), so we got to try it at the podcast! It’s a serious summer drink…at 19% ABV it’s not messin’ around. I was also stoked to find an awesome vegan option on the menu…grilled veggies sans goat cheese. Delish!
The podcast set-up: comedian Marc Maron, Adam Carolla, Alison Rosen, Bald Bryan and Dawson.
Me and Justin at a meet and greet (this one was at the Icehouse in Pasadena because our picture from Amalfi turned out blurry), and the front bar area of the restaurant. The restaurant has a very cozy vibe with awesome mood lighting.
Ready to get my summer drink on with some peach and pear infused white Mangria! Infact, we’re even getting a keg of Mangria for a party we’re throwing in June. Brilliant!
