Ask the average Los Angeles socialite what he or she will be doing on a Sunday afternoon and the answer you receive might not be very interesting. Perhaps vegging-out in front of the television or nursing a hangover from a wild Saturday night out. This was not the case, however, in the summer of 2005 when Sunday afternoons were made memorable at a little cabana-styled Hollywood getaway named Cranes Tavern. Respected members of the Los Angeles music scene, Chris Haycock and Jaime Strong, teamed up to bring meaning to Sunday afternoons with an unforgettable party playfully named Do-Over (Do your weekend all over). Haycock and Strong invited emcee Aloe Blacc to host the event and history was made.
Week after week, Do-Over grew to become a pleasure-full habit to a family of dedicated Sunday afternoon patrons. It became a regular hang out for the who's who of the LA scene, people looking for a good time from all walks, as well as desired venue for well-known deejays to share a mix. The element of surprise drove more and more people to this Sunday soiree just to see what guest deejay would grace the patio. There was something very special about this event and everyone wanted to be part of it. With very little promotion, relying mainly on word of mouth and throngs of dedicated patrons, Cranes Tavern often reached capacity early, leaving a line of folks outside patiently waiting to enter. Initially intended to run only from 2pm-9pm, Do-Over's overwhelming popularity consistently forced it to continue beyond scheduled.
In 2006, The Do-Over returns in the same fashion, with more hype, more excitement, more madness. We invite all of our friends, old and new, to take part in what we believe is the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
