Coolest Thing We’ve Seen This Year: Phone Projector
No more huddling around a screen. Now, you can share whatever is on your phone’s screen (videos, photos, Sharon Waxman’s breaking news, anything) to a nearby wall or ceiling. This phone mod -- dubbed the Moto Insta-Share Projector from Motorola -- can cast up to 70 inches.
Binge "Narcos" on the ceiling in bed with the kids or do what the Party Report has already done: ambush events to project our own images on to the wall in public.
Moto Insta-Share Projector, $299 at Verizon, Best Buy, Costco, and Motorola.com
How about unlimited free valet parking at the Grove for a year?
This is a game changer for how you approach the hive between Fairfax, Beverly and Third Street.
From someone who’s had it and whose privileges expired, it’s worth it.
Caruso Affiliated will toss in a special VIP card that gets you that parking privilege as part of an “Ultimate Staycation” package for purchase...
It comes with a 2-night stay in the Caruso Presidential Suite at the Americana at Brand (that’s the catch/reward: a weekend in Glendale).
- $1,000 Shopping Spree
- Chef's dinners at Bourbon Steak L.A. and Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
- Breakfast in Bed
- Movie tickets
- and that parking card.
Cost: $10,000. Call the Caruso VIP line at 323.275.5500.

Luxury Loaner - The Oscars Ride
Cadillac's CT6 has chauffeured nominees and presenters to the Oscars and will be back on Hollywood’s biggest red carpet next year as the Academy's official ride. (A plug-in sedan is coming soon.)
On a "we'll call you" basis, Cadillac has been known to loan out these rides to key industry figures for weeks at a time. Think your boss or client would look good with this pulling up after a lunch at Bouchon or a night at Soho House?
Speaking of worth their weight in gold, the first weekend of the 2017 festival is April 14-16, where backstage access leads to run-ins like Sir Paul and Adam Levine.
Don't buy these off the black market, though, as Goldenvoice sued a third-party re-seller earlier this year and voided all transferred bands. Pull your connections and go right to your best Goldenvoice source.
