The Lincoln MKT – A Step Up In Luxury

The Lincoln Town Car, in all of its various incarnations was (and still is) a beautiful example of luxury transportation.  It largely became the standard luxury sedan for the entire limousine industry.

Sure, the Cadillac XTS is also a worthy competitor, but Lincoln has not given up in the least.  The Lincoln MKT – referred to as a luxury crossover vehicle – has now taken the prize of the most popular stretch limousine in recent customer surveys.  Stylish lines and amazing interiors are just two reasons.

We have sedans and stretch versions, in black and white.  They are extremely roomy inside, and appointed with everything you need for a great night out.  High-end stereos, fiber optic and LED lighting, bar and more.  The only problem we have is keeping them on the lot!

So if you’d like to check out the Lincoln MKTs yourself, give us a call, or visit our newly redesigned website for more details and information.  Proms, weddings, nights on the town; all are ideal occasions to roll in the MKT.

 

 

 

 

 

Guy’s Night Out!

OK, so we all know the “girls” have their nights, so we can have ours, right?

Guy's Night Out 1

So, now that that’s settled, what to do?  Dinner?  Bar hopping?  Clubbing?  All of the above?  Sure!  But… who’s gonna draw the short straw and be the designated driver tonight?  No one is raising their hand.  So what’s it going to be… Cab?  Uber?  No, not tonight.  There’s 8 of you, and you want to live it up in style.  It’s settled… you need a limo!

Guy's Night Out 2

So now, which limo?  Well, our website can help get you started, as can a conversation with one of our reservationists, but some suggestions for you now would be the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, the Chrysler 300 stretch limo, the Cadillac Escalade super stretch limo, and the Hummer H2 super stretch limo.  They can seat from 8 to 18 people.  Larger group than that… go for the luxury limo bus.

Whichever you choose, you’ll travel in safetly and style, with no concerns about getting there, where to park once you’re there, and most importantly, if the drinks are flowing, you won’t be behind the wheel.

Make it a night to remember.  And speaking of remembering… remember this; what happens in the limo, stays in the limo.  Enough said.

‘Tis The Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year- Indeed it is!!!!!!!!!  Lots of hustle and bustle in the malls, children in a hurry to take pictures with Santa and many are traveling afar to be with their loved ones.   Many times people get so busy preparing for the holidays they forget to take a moment to enjoy one another in a fun relaxed setting.   Whatever you decide consider getting a limo to make your night or day one to remember.

Christmas Lights

Every year in many different cities the amazing candy cane lane is created with an abundance of lights and creative murals that express the joy of this time of year…It gets crowded and parking could be overwhelming and time consuming…. Don’t stress out- leave this kinda stuff to your well trained driver.

Christmas Lights 1

Here are a few locations to consider.

Westlake Village Inn, Westlake Village

800-535-9978

Thousands of sparkling twinkle lights bring holiday cheer to this charming European-style inn, set on seventeen acres in Westlake Village. Christmas trees and poinsettias are scattered throughout the property, creating a winter wonderland. Take advantage of one of their winter overnight specials and catch live entertainment every Friday and Saturday evening in Bogie’s Night Club & Bar. Or, just stop in for dinner at Mediterraneo.

Beverly Hills Christmas 2

Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills

Twinkle lights and red ribbons adorn the trees, lavish holiday displays decorate the shop windows, poinsettias are planted in the center divider, and the infamous Pretty Woman hotel, The Regent Beverly Wilshire, is bejeweled with lights and interior decorations- a sight you don’t want to miss. Make a day of it and stop in for Afternoon Tea at the Regent. The hotel has a Holiday Desk available to answer questions concerning their festivities. Plan ahead for next year’s Nutcracker Tea, as reservations are sold out one year in advance- anyone who loves tea would love this…

 

Candy Cane Lane, Woodland Hills

Lubao Avenue and Oxnard Street

818-347-4737. Make sure to come during the week, as weekends are very busy. Most amazing, elaborate displays you’ve ever seen.

 

Candy Cane Lane, El Segundo

The eastern block of Acacia Avenue is announced by a Candy Cane Lane sign, marking a tradition of more than 60 years. Houses are alight with trains, reindeer, giant characters, and music, plus frequent appearances by Santa Claus in a covered sleigh at the end of the cul-de-sac. The lights go on at 6:00 pm; Santa usually sits down in his sleigh at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

This year, Candy Cane Lane’s program will begin on December 14, 2013. The street will be closed to cars, but parking is available throughout the neighborhood. The last night of the public display is December 23, keeping the street more private for the actual holiday.

Address:

1200 E Acacia

Los Angeles Clubbing in a Limo

Question: What’s the best way to hang out with your friends on a Saturday night in Hollywood or on the Sunset Strip?

Sunset_Strip_at_night

Answer: In a stretch limousine!

Sure, you can carpool in one of your friend’s cars and go to a few different clubs.  It is possible to do it that way. But there are a few problems with that method. The first is the big risk of drinking and driving. The second problem is trying to fit all your friends in one car. The third is dealing with all the Hollywood traffic. The fourth is parking hassles. The fifth is taking all your friends home at the end of the night.

You could also go the cab route, but that doesn’t help when it comes to more than 3 people. Plus you’re not exactly creating a stir when you pull up to the club in a dirty cab!

Hollywood clubs in a limo

However, replace your own car or the cab scenario above with a stretch limousine and you’re golden! Depending on the number of friends in your group, you can either get a Lincoln Town Car L-Series sedan, a Lincoln or Chrysler stretch limousine, a super stretch SUV limo like an Escalade or Hummer H2, or a party bus. The Town Car (L-Series) will be good for about 3-4 friends. The stretch Lincoln or Chrysler limo will be good for 8-10. The super stretch SUV limo will hold up to 20. And the party bus will handle up to 40 friends!

Limousine driver

Whichever you choose, you’ll get a professional and well trained chauffeur that will pick you up at your place – and also stop at your friend’s places to get them if needed – and take you wherever you want to go. Hop form bar to bar or club to club. Your limo will drop you off in front (and in style), and pick you up when you’re done (once again, in style). Your transportation is just a phone call away.2_girls_in_limousine

You can also begin and/or continue the party in the limousine in between stops. Bring your own adult beverages of choice. The limo will have the glasses, waters, sodas and ice. And if you’re in one of the party buses, you also have your own restroom! Good luck taking care of that if you’re squeezed into your car with 4 friends, or riding in a cab.

But the best thing about having your own limousine for the night is that you don’t have to worry about getting stopped by the police, or endangering your life, your friend’s lives, or the lives of those out on the street. When you think about it, a limousine is really the only way to go. And if you don’t know which limo you need, or need more questions answered about renting a limousine for your night out, give us a call. We’d be happy to help you out in every way we can!
