Hey Cats and Kittens! I'm @StyleMeClassic - Follow Me!
'Swing Kids' has EVERYTHING to capture the era of the 1940s - music, love, passion, style, AMAZING dance moves, and of course classic cars. With a lot of wrong things happening in Germany many sought dancing as an outlet to get away, however, during a time when swing music was banned, a group of kids come to terms with the price for freedom.
The holiday season is the time to be merry, festive, and who are we kidding- the time to enjoy some drinks.
On Saturday, that is exactly what I did. I got to have a great ol’ time with my fellow drinkers at ‘Gasser Lounge’. I could say it was an ordinary night as any other bar would have, but truth be told ‘Gasser Lounge’ is anything, but ordinary.
The evening started around nine thirty. It was a bit windy, but that didn’t stop my friend and I from looking good. We found parking immediately and that was luck in itself. We walked up to the driveway and noticed it was lonely. We thought maybe we were a tad bit early, but that wasn’t the case as soon as we walked in. The place was filled with the RADDEST people one could encounter.
The Christmas decorations were decked out and definitely played a role of what the evening held. Alexa and I approached the bar and were greeted by the blonde sweetheart, with the one arm tatooed sleeve. who served us our first potent round of cocktails-
When we finished our cocktails we decided to start the second round with Patron shots. Once again the blonde beauty came to our aid and filled two glass skulls. Alexa and I decided to pound them with no hesitation. We took out our limes and gave “Cheers!” to our evening of EPIC-ness.
Round three was just around the corner so Alexa decided to try a Fireball; clueless as to what this drink would do for us she ordered them anyway. So while we were waiting for the shots we were convincing each other that there was no room for chicken sh*%. The drinks were placed on the counter (I can’t recall who served that round) and as we were about to “Cheers!” we heard two good looking cats sitting at the bar encouraging us to, “just do it!”...So we did.
Soon after we hit the ladies room and asked the cuties at the bar to save our spot. They agreed and we ventured to the typical scenario - long lines and loud women. The friendly ladies told us about their evening and then one decided that she could no longer wait and stormed into the men’s restroom to make the line shorter for the females. I certainly was thankful for making it a shorter wait time.
As we approached the bar I ran into two of my favorite men, Orlando and Cyrus. We embraced, introductions were given, laughs were shared and we parted ways. We went back to our saved spot and round four commenced. We ordered two
Once we stepped out all you could hear were the powerful sounds of three Harley Davidson’s pulling up. I met the cool owners, Joe, Wayne, and?? (oops!) They were really laid back and agreed to take pictures. After the photo shoot Alexa and I went back inside to find ourselves ready for round 5. Alexa introduced me to a drink called; “Mind Eraser” and it lived up to its name.
…and of course NO holiday party can be without celebrating Chanukah and so that is when we heard “Hava Nagila” charging out of the speakers and witness a hot tub roll out, carrying a lovely tatooed dame who is pouring shots down into the crowd and passing out free swag. Cyrus, being the tall, gorgeous, Irish dream that he is- is assisting us short girls by reaching for the giveaways.
Three more shots in (courtesy of hot tub female) and everything slowly wrapped up. The last light show started while scenes of ‘National Lampoons Christmas Vacation’ played on the flat screen. Classic scenes, classic music including, “You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch” by Brian Setzer Orchestra presented snow (not really, but you get the picture…literally) the Gasser Lounge final touch!
With cheap drinks, GREAT service, AWESOME cats and dolls, 'Gasser Lounge' did it again by adding another EPIC night to my lifetime.
For the past few years

Every year thousands of spectators follow the man with the dream to showcase beautiful cars, women, and artwork under one roof. The man behind the vision is Sam Torres, owner and creator of ‘Torres Empire’.
Having been in the lowriding scene most of his life, Sam made his interest in building and collecting cars into a passion. The annual show allows for Sam to share his vision to those with the same love for cars.
Every year, in different parts of the U.S, Sam out does himself with great performances from artists such as Ice Cube, The Game, Brenton Wood and Tierra.
In September 2012, I got to witness the final product of this empire unfold. Hundreds of beautiful cars were displayed- each signifying the blood, sweat and tears one or multiple people put into just so that they can rebuild an American classic.
Sam Torres was not only friendly, but also humble. He expressed that none of his success would be possible if he didn’t have the patience, hard work and love that his team dedicates year round; something that definitely showed in

At the end of summer I attended the famous annual ‘Torres Empire Car Show’ and by doing so I got to catch up with some members of ‘KINFOKE’ (Southern California). President Elton “Fat Cat” Davis showed me one of his muscle cars that looked like a prize win.
Having 12 members and 11 cars- a few that were on display showed the variety 'KINFOKE has to offer not just for car shows but also to give back to the community for great causes such as; SFVHS, Bone Marrow, Diabetes, and Toy Drives.
Meeting the people of KINFOKE made for a fun afternoon.

There’s never enough time to find THE perfect Halloween party. People are always preoccupied with what they are going to be for Hallows Eve, but never really know where they are going to show off their scary selves (outside of their everyday life). CARNEVIL is that place where you can experience all the Halloween tricks and treats with a twist. *insert evil laugh*
