#AFridayIn: Los Angeles, California

If your idea of a successful happy hour includes bartenders in bow ties, sweeping city skylines and fiery sunsets — then this week's #AFridayIn certainly did not disappoint.

This past Friday, GlobalPost's Kaitlin Funaro took us out for a very stylish cocktail hour in the City of Angels.

Kaitlin began her #AFridayIn adventure at the Grand Central Market — LA's largest and oldest open-air market. From spicy mango candies to tiny dried fish, horchata, green curry, and seemingly endless rows of vibrant, fresh produce — Kaitlin shared with us many of the gastronomic jewels that LA has to offer.

Next stop, cocktail hour!

If your idea of a successful happy hour includes bartenders in bow ties, sweeping city skylines, and fiery sunsets — then this week's #AFridayIn certainly did not disappoint. Kaitlin gave us a (virtual) taste of everything from local beers to cool cocktails, and ever the pro, she even enlisted a few friends to step in and help her as whiskey tasters.

#RoughLife.
