Fair-y Tale Weddings at LACF: For the first time in history, Fairplex will host four free weddings during the Los Angeles County Fair (LACF). For the past two months couples from all over the country have submitted entries in hopes of being chosen for a wedding at the Fair.

Four winning couples will receive weddings that include the venue (one of four unique locations within the Fairgrounds), decor, flower arrangements, lighting/sound, a wedding officiate, champagne toast, wedding cake, guest invitations and party favors, an overnight stay at the Sheraton Honeymoon Suite and of course, a full day of fun at LACF.

The competition comes to a close on Monday, May 12 during which time a panel of judges will decide who will say “I do” at the Fair.

Tapatio-Spiked Pineapple Cilantro Chili Sorbet in LA: In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, CoolHaus has partnered with The Hundreds x Tapatio to bring Angelenos the limited-edition Tapatio-Spiked Pineapple Cilantro Chili Sorbet. It tastes exactly like it sounds. Instead of fudge or sprinkles, the already-spicy dessert will come doused in the ever-popular Tapatio sauce.

Introducing the new Snapchat

Social Media: Snapchat introduced direct messaging and live video chat to users on Thursday of last week. The latest upgrade is a hybrid of Instagram Direct and FaceTime, albeit all messages, photos and videos are deleted as soon as they are read by the recipient. The upgrade also included a new look, with minimalism font and design. Users are still able to send photo/video to multiple users and the My Story feature.
