Santa & Sparkling Wine — For Free

Santa & Sparkling Wine — For Free

The wine bar/café call the Must in downtown L.A. has survived its first year, no mean feat in this economy, and to celebrate it’s invited Santa to visit on Saturday night. Come without your kids (this is a grown-up place) for a photo on Santa’s lap — and if you bring a donation of canned [...]

Vertical Wine Bistro Changes It Up

Vertical Wine Bistro Changes It Up

After three years, the San Gabriel Valley’s most elegant wine bar, Vertical, has changed things up. Gone are chef Sara Levine and her small-plates tasting menu; now settled  in are new chef Doug Weston and a more traditionally structured menu of modern American bistro food. Also new is operations manager David Haskell, a self-described “wine [...]

Home Brew Clubs

Home Brew Clubs

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a keg of ale to bottle and pass out to your friends this holiday season? Yeah, we wish we had taken up home brewing last year, too. It’s a bit late for fermenting this year, but if you join one of the many local home brew clubs now, [...]

EAT: LA 2010 Party a Hit

EAT: LA 2010 Party a Hit

The rain let up, the street food aromas mounted, and before long more than 100 L.A. food lovers and media folks filled the Traveler’s Bookcase parking lot and store to celebrate the publication of EAT: Los Angeles 2010 book. The party was a big hit, even with the cold, cold temps — all it took [...]

Portugal Imports

Portugal Imports

WHY A rare chance to savor the sweet side of Portugal. WHAT Portugal Imports does essentially serve lunch, what with its sausage sandwiches and weekend-only selection of classic salt cod dishes, but the main reason to make the trip to the Artesia store is its fresh-baked Portuguese breads and pastries. Try an assortment of queijadas, [...]

Bloggers’ Bake Sale

Proceeds will support the Los Angeles Regional Food [...]

Angeli’s Year of Discounted Suppers

Angeli’s Year of Discounted Suppers

December 9, 1984. That’s the night Evan Kleiman opened Angeli Caffé on Melrose. We shouted our praises a few months ago, but if you still haven’t stopped by, Kleiman is sweetening the deal with a 25th anniversary celebration that lasts through the end of next year. As of December 1, you can grab a three-course [...]

Don’t Feed the Homeless?

Don’t Feed the Homeless?

We had to pass along this blog report from Donna Myrow, publisher of the nonprofit, teen-written newspaper L.A. Youth, detailing a recent outing at Farmers Market, where security guards would not let her give her uneaten food to a homeless person — even when she invited the hungry person in question to sit at her table. [...]

Indio International Tamale Festival

Indio International Tamale Festival

WHEN Saturday -Sunday, December 5th & 6th, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. WHY Really good, really homemade tamales from church groups, home-based tamale businesses and larger regional tamale makers.

Thyme Café and Market

Thyme Café and Market

WHY Of all the great westside hybrid café/takeout/gourmet markets that have popped up recently (Huckleberry, La Grande Orange, the café at Tavern), this is the first that doesn’t feel like a lunchtime splurge, with most sandwiches and salads priced less than $10. WHAT Chinese chicken salad with fried wontons and sugar snaps; tomato, mozzarella and pesto [...]
