Ellen, we don't know how to contact you, so please email us so we can get you your two free tickets. Thank you to everyone who entered! Remember, Early Bird tickets are on sale until midnight tonight!

Thanks to our friends at Pama and Hpnotiq, we'll be shaking up three delightful cocktails at our City Listening II event on June 26. Help us name them and the winning name for each cocktail will get a free ticket to City Listening II, an evening of stories about LA read by the city's leading design writers!

Right now they're just named after the colors they'll be, but we want you to christen these cocktails with proper "design east of La Brea" names before we can serve them to you. How about naming them after your favorite building east of La Brea? Perhaps you can honor your favorite City Listening speaker? Or use the name to show some east of La Brea neighborhood pride? Maybe you should start drinking right now for some proper inspiration!

Pink grapefruit juice

Pineapple juice

Cranberry juice

Post your suggestions to Twitter and tag them #citylistening, add them in the Facebook comments here, or post them in the comments below. Be sure to reference which color cocktail you're naming. The winner for each cocktail will get a free ticket to City Listening II!

Hurry! Deadline is Wednesday night, June 9 at midnight. We'll announce the winners the next day here, on Twitter and on Facebook, so those who don't win will still have plenty of time to buy tickets at Early Bird pricing, which ends midnight, June 10! May the best drink names win!

Disclaimer: Must not be presently located east of La Brea in order to enter. We welcome submissions from those both east and west.
