The Magical Dîner en Blanc in L.A.!

• A room of my own. Room 31 that is…my secret bar in Eagle Rock

A room of my own. Room 31 that is…my secret bar in Eagle Rock

I could live here in Room 31. The bar is stocked, the room is small and cozy, there are a bunch of tv’s in the adjacent sports bar, The 5 Line Tavern, and nobody can find me, easily, behind the hidden sliding door. A perfect hide-away. And, as it happens, it’s the first craft cocktail bar […]

Thank you, LA Food & Wine Fest! I may never eat again!

The LA Food & Wine Fest is three days of glorious fressing made by world class chefs and served by them, sipping wines from about 100(!) wineries, tippling cocktails and quaffing beer all in the name of diligent food and beverage research. Here is what my research discovered covering these three big foodie events: Emeril […]

Karen Grill, what’s a nice Jewish girl like you doing behind the bar?

Since I drink for a living, I meet a lot of people in the booze world, particularly bartenders because, ‘hellooo’, they are generally the ones serving the booze – sometimes at a bar, sometimes at an event. As customers, we walk in and take a seat at a bar, we order a drink and chitchat […]

• Ryan Wainwright – A Bartender’s Bartender

Ryan Wainwright – A Bartender’s Bartender

Ryan Wainwright wasn’t born wanting to be a bartender. Well, who does, you may ask. But, for Ryan, bartending was probably an even more distant career possibility given that he was raised in a strict Christian household where alcohol wasn’t an option, attended Fundamentalist schools and a church where alcohol was demonized. He didn’t go […]
