Fun drinks and lifestyle billboards around L.A. and San Francisco in August...

You've already seen the plethora of fashion billboards around L.A. in August, so here's the eclectic collection of drinks, food and lifestyle billboards lining the skies of Los Angeles, and some gems from San Francisco too.

Drinks billboards
Stoli Salted Karamel Vodka billboard
First up are two giant-sized billboards from the quirky new Stoli Most Original Vodka campaign, the first from L.A.'s Sunset Strip and the second spied near Union Square in San Francisco.
Stoli Most Original Table Service billboard
Next up is another super-sized creative from Heineken on the side of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood. I find it an interesting approach that the Dutch beer plays up its imported credentials when there's a real protectionist 'Made in America' vibe with most products in this economic climate.

Another beer brand, Beck's, showcased its limited edition artist designed label on this billboard along Sunset & Vine.
Becks Dont forget beer billboard
Meanwhile I'm liking Bacardi's new ad campaign which positions it as the essential ingredient in classic cocktails.
Bacardi Original Mojito billboard
Tanqueray gin continues to have a presence along Sunset Strip with this refreshing creative.

And following on from Sprite's skateboarder billboard, here's another sporty basketball execution for the soda brand helping them to target that youth market.

Food billboards
Temecula Avocado billboard
In June I spotted an Avocado bilboard from Morro Bay and here's another creative for Temecula, another part of California. As you can see these ads witty support locally grown products versus Heineken's emphasis on being 'imported'.
Chipotle Here goes the neighborhood billboard
Another food brand with a sense of humour is Chipotle Mexican Grill who recently opened a new restaurant at Melrose and La Brea Avenues, using this ad to draw attention to themselves.
Cheetos Best thing to happen to cheese billboard
This Cheetos ad seems to be everywhere at the moment and certainly brings a smile to my face whenever I see it.
Chobani Team USA billboard
And it wouldn't be right to not have an Olympic themed billboard this month and this one was for Chobani yogurt powering Team USA was snapped in San Francisco.

Financial billboards
Wells Fargo cash flow billboard
Finance and insurance billboards can often be dull and boring, but I like the wit and simplicity of this Wells Fargo copy creative.
Mercury Weeeee billboard
Plus here's another creative in a very long line of variations for Mercury with a Three Little Pigs fairytale theme. Be sure to also check out more witty copy billboards for Mercury Insurance at my Daily Billboard blog.

Health and safety billboards
Wildfire embers billboard
With it being super-hot this month this billboard for wildfire prevention really caught my eye. The burnt paper effect on the right-hand side is a nice touch and gets the safety message across in a clever way.
Use a condom hardhat billboard
Meanwhile, this simple condom billboard cleverly uses seat-belts and hard hat imagery to visually hammer home its safe sex message, just like these other fun safe sex billboards.

Technology billboards
Webpass not you me billboard
In San Francisco's Financial District this Webpass billboard grabbed my attention by equating your internet service provider with a personal relationship and how to break up with them.
Apple iPad3 keyboard billboard
Plus Apple continued the second wave of its ad campaign for the iPad 3 around town.

Arts billboards
Poultry Rex Fairfax Avenue billboard
Finally is this quirky Poultry Rex billboard along Fairfax Avenue near Melrose Avenue which I believe is part of L.A.'s outdoor art program.

As you can see there's been a real mixed bag of lifestyle billboards this month and you can see more variety every day at Daily Billboard.

Be sure to also stick around in the days to come for a cool round-up of August's best TV and movie billboards around L.A...
