Covell…finally, a bar I can call my "local"

No doubt if you live in LA, you’ve heard of Covell (pronounced kō VELLE) by now. It’s that comfortable little neighborhood bar in Los Feliz (pronounced Los FEE-liz by some, Los Fe-LEEZ by others…anyone know for sure?) that easily becomes a ‘local’, as in “my local” when talking about where one hangs out. But even if you’re just visiting, it’s a great place to observe the natives and drink some kickass wine specially selected for you by charming owner, Dustin Lancaster, or charming General Manager & Wine Director, Matthew Kaner. They really know their stuff and love introducing you to wines you’ll never find at 7-11.  Plus, they have a very tasty selection of revolving beer taps.

After a full day in front of the computer, I totally needed a distraction, so I headed down to my local and relaxed with a delicious pint of Jolly Pumpkin and a discreet taste of Pliny the Elder. A great way to get revved up for more work into the wee hours.

Wish my local were open at 3am!
