crush ~ the haute lunch bag

to all the LA ladies (plus those of you who travel here), there's a new website launching, created by a dear friend of mine that you have got to check out!

the haute lunch bag (the HLB) is a girl's must-have resource to explore their city, connect with friends, share reviews, and receive exclusive lunch specials to the best restaurants in LA. (don't worry if you're not from LA ~ they have plans to expand to other cities very soon!) this location based social network puts you in the know with the latest food, fashion, and happenings in town.

you can browse through the HLB for fun things like:
~ best restaurant for a power lunch
~ best place for a birthday celebration
~ where to get your swerve on
~ dog friendly joints
~ veggie/vegan friendly spots
~ most romantic places to dine
~ perfect brunch spot
and one of my faves
~ where to take out of towners

their main mission is to inspire women to live a more flavorful life while helping the community thrive.

the haute lunch bag not only offers couture cuisine, they also donate a growing portion of revenue to the LA regional foodbank to help feed the nearly 1 million men, women, and children facing hunger in the community. (isn't that number scary... 1 million??)

currently the HLB is a "coming soon" website, but if you join now you can earn points for a chance to win a stella mccartney handbag, and if you refer friends you get even more points! the person with the most points will win a brand new stella. ♥

after the official launch you can earn more points for "checking in", writing reviews, and becoming fans of the restaurants. each month the member with the most points will be named "tastemaker of the month" and will win a delicious designer handbag. (ie. stella, alexander, or a drool worthy chloe)

p.s. before the site officially launches in january 2011, they have a lovely newsletter with exclusive offers and tips on food, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, and more. so don't miss out, and sign on up!

I'm in NYC but this looks awesome. Can be a great resource for when I visit out west.
