Booooo-zy Costumes for Winos

October 29, 2014


Are you a wino who stills need a costume for Friday? Here are some great options.

(Really digging the Widow Clicquot get up. Classy + Boozy. Though if your more of the trashy+boozy variety, the plastic Franz skirt should do quite nicely.)

Get Fat+Cultured with Get Your Phil

October 23, 2014



Yes, Friday-night Netflix binges of Scandal, complimented by Chinese take-out & a bottle of wine (per person) are great. But every so often you really should mix it up. That night-time who-is-Olivia-boning-now soap opera is doing nothing for the cultural (and intellectual) parts of your brain (though it’s probably inspired you to incorporate some awesome all white outfits into your work-wardrobe.)


This is the perfect solution: $25 prix-fixe dinner at a downtown hot spot + a concert at the Los Angeles Philharmonic.  Read more…

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Cafe del Rey

October 21, 2014

Shout-out to our reader Victoria for the heads up on this one! With multiple courses of food, mucho bottomless boozy cocktail options and a gorgeous view of the water – this place sounds schmancy!



Brunching Spot: Cafe del Rey, Marina del Rey

Boozy Brunch Hours: Sat 11:30am – 2:30pm, Sun 10:30am – 2:30pm

Bottomless Mimosa Deal: $38 three-course prix-fixe menu that includes endless champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider (boozy??!), and bloody mary’s.

Menu Highlights:  Our dream combo on this menu would start us with the beet+burrata salad, move on to the short-rib hash, and finish off with some blueberry cheese cake. The menu is a good balance of breakfast and lunch, light to heavy. Other delectable options include brioche french toast, a mozzarella+pesto chicken sandwich, rib eye steak & eggs with hash (which must be the best bang for your buck option on the menu), and an egg and bacon sandwich.


Free Corkage!

October 15, 2014


We created a book-club recently and named it Literary Lushes. It’s awesome. We all love books, we all love wine.

As a group we’re always looking for spots to dine + discuss the book, where we can bring our own vino for cheap or free. So this list was created out of a personal need, but we hope you enjoy it as well.

If you know of spots missing from the list, please let us know and we’ll get them added.

*Note: for our most up-to-date list please check the top menu button titled FREE CORKAGE.

Hangover Brunch: The Dark Room

October 14, 2014

This last weekend we told ourselves ‘no bottomless mimosas’.  Blasphemous, we know, but we needed a calm weekend and self restraint is a problem when the orange bubbly flows like the mighty Niagara. So we went to Dark Room.

Turns out Dark Room sells $12 bottles of bubbly + $5 carafes of OJ…. And thus debauchery quickly set in.

So much for a calm weekend.



Hangover Brunch Spot: The Darkroom on Melrose

Boozy Brunching Hours: No clue, but they kept serving us bottles of bubbly the duration of our visit (12:30-4:30 or so…) on a Sunday.

Boozy Brunch Deal: $12 Bottles of Bubbly + $5 Carafes of OJ (One carafe is enough for 2 bottles of bubbs.) $9 Bloody Mary Bar.

Menu Highlights: There wasn’t any brunchy food but the chili cheese tater tots were flippin fantastic. Fried chicken sandwich was also pretty good (though heavy on the mustard.)


Author’s Note: Its a 49er bar. Watch out: Lots of obnoxious fans were there heckling us like crazy, and there wasn’t even a Niner game on that day. Following in the classy footsteps of their coach I suppose… 


The Dark Room / 7302 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles 90046 / (323) 931-3800
