There’s a new flock in town that you won’t want to miss that has landed in theaters today. To celebrate the release of STORKS, we attended a very special premier of the movie at Warner Bros studio last month. We cannot wait to watch the movie again now that it is in theaters.

STORKS

About the film

Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world. It’s a little bundle of joy that will warm your heart.

At the Warner Bros Studio, the crowd was set to enjoy a full day of fun activities and screening of the movie at the famous Steven J. Ross Theater. We walked the blue carpet and some of the characters were available to take pictures with like Tullip, Pigeon Toady and Junior.  Here’s went down and all the tasty and delicious things that were on hand as we entered the world of STORKS. The after party was held at the historic Brownstone Street inside the studios.  Activities included a candy station, a cotton candy station, lots of tasty food trucks to choose from, fun photo ops, making a Color-Me-Mine creation, face-painting, balloons, coloring, dancing, a crazy slide and more. Check out all the fun pictures below and make sure to watch the official trailer!

DoorDash Now Delivers Booze in SoCal! #DoorDashLA #BeerDash

DoorDash Now Delivers Booze in SoCal!

By Erin

*Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post by DoorDash. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.*

Did you know? DoorDash is now delivering booze in Southern California and is expanding to other cities quickly. DoorDash is working with popular restaurants and breweries in town to let you order beer, wine and other spirits right along with your meals. How awesome is that?

door-dash-3

If you have not heard of the DoorDash app yet, you have been missing out! It allows you to order from a wide variety of restaurants, from your favorite fast casual place to the trendy new hot spot down the street. The real treat is that  now you can order alcohol too. Perfect right!? Date night? Girls Night? Long day at work and you just don’t feel like cooking or want a drink without having to go anywhere? Then DoorDash is your answer. My favorite part is that DoorDash delivers booze.

With a growing list of over 100 partners in SoCal – including premium bottle shops, restaurants with unbelievable selection, your standard liquor stores, and your mom and pop Thai restaurants. It’s an affordable convenience delivered right to your doorstep in under 60 minutes. You can also order ahead of time at your prefered time of delivery, which is what I did.

If you’re like me and need things to be as convenient and easy as possible, then you will want to check out this amazing service. Due to my super busy schedule, I needed to put in my dinner order for later when I’d get home. I knew I’d be starving and ready to eat and have a nice cold beer, not wanting to just then be putting in my order and having to wait any longer.

12:30pm  On my lunch break I opened the DoorDash site and selected my restaurant of choice. We decided to order from a Korean BBQ place, called Sura Korean BBQ & Tofu House.  I put in my special promo code (that you are all welcome to use too!) HORSINGAROUND for $7 off my order of $20 or more. It was easy as pie. I set in our delivery time for 5:30-6:00pm.

5:00pm I got home and checked the site to check in on my order. It said it was en route and even told me the drivers name and that they should be there by 5:45pm.

5:15 pm The doorbell rang. Our food and drink was here already! Just make sure to have your ID handy to show your dasher if you ordered booze, so they can verify that you are over 21 years of age. 😉

5:30pm Took a few photos (of course) then enjoyed some yummy food and delicious drinks. Without any of the waiting, cooking or cleaning! Such a nice change of pace from the usual.
