LIBRARY ALE HOUSE: mini BEER FEST!

December 20-January 1, LAH is hosting a mini Beer Fest to end the year with a bang!
Today through January 1, Libray Ale House (located on Main Street in Santa Monica) is having a mini beer fest. For $10, purchase a logo glass; refills cost between $2.50-$5. I believe they also give you a 'proof of purchase' card when you purchase your logo glass, so you don't have to lug around your glass everytime you want to stop in for a beer (and free chips and salsa!) - just flash your Beer Fest card to one of their friendly bartenders! Here are just some of the festive beers that will be on tap to smaple: Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza, Nʼice Chouffe, Dogfish Head Pangaea & Head Chicory Stout, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Anchor Brewingʼs Merry Christmas Happy New Year Ale, Anderson Valleyʼs Winter Solstice, Delirium Noel, and Gouden Carolus Noel.

BYOB

 Who doesn't love BYOB? It's a great way to dine out while enjoying your favorite (or cheapest) bottle of wine without a corkage fee! BYOB is perfect for birthdays when you know your party will drink as many bottles as people attending, without breaking the bank. There is protocol involved in BYOB, most importantly: no $2 Buck Chuck allowed (sorry, a line must be drawn), and please tip waiter generously for putting up with your cheapskate antics. That being said, bring on the wine! Here is a list, in no particular order of my favorite restaurants who honor a no corkage fee all week long: 
Bandera (Brentwood)
BreadBar (W 3rd St NOT Century City)
Café Pinot (Downtown)
Cha Cha Chicken (Santa Monica)
Hillstone, formally Houstons (Santa Monica)
Houston's (Manhattan Beach, Century City)
I Cugini (Santa Monica)
R&D Kicthen (Santa Monica)
Simon LA (Beverly Hills)- first bottle only 
Water Grill (Downtown)  

CHAYA FRIDAY

Chaya is one of the few restaurants that offer a Friday night Happy Hour, and it goes on all night.
 Did you know that Chaya (Venice and Downtown locations only) have a Happy Hour that starts at 5pm and ends at closing? And it happens every night? Well now you know. Chaya is always a happening place, but with the opportunity to really let loose tonight and not have to worry about your hangover until tomorrow, head to Chaya for cheap drinks and food! What are you waiting for?

Some restaurants who are participating include Belacan Grill, Yazmin, Starry Kitchen, and Santa Monica's very own Monsoon, all of whom will be offering free tastes of traditional Malaysian street food!

PALOMINO $6 PIZZA, $8 FLATBREAD

Palomino now offers all day Happy Hour prices on their bar food menu including $6 pizzas and $8 flat breads.
Palomino is located in Westwood, and unfortunately is linked by it's UCLA neighborhood to an assumption that it must serve sub par food. In reality, Palomino has a great Happy Hour scene (good luck getting a spot to sit after 7) and more importantly good deals on surprisingly delicious bar food. The pizzas are big enough for a meal, or more than enough to share and nibble on as you exchange work gossip with coworkers after a long day.

WING WEDNESDAY

25 cent Wings at the Big Wangs Hollywood location, and 1/2 off wings at the NoHo location today. Better get cluckin!

They also offer $5 glasses of a red and white wine for the winos out there. As for the food, they have food trucks which park outside, and vary depending on the day. Can you say "Thanks Mom!"

NO BOYS ALLOWED!

Lilly's French Cafe: 1/2 off all selected wines and bar drinks/5:30 – 8:30pm (Women only, sorry boys!)
 It's Ladies Night at Lilly's French Cafe in Venice! Ladies Night reminds me of the 80's, or Sex and the City, either way- I'm not complaining about getting 1/2 off drinks tonight! And now Lilly's has a full bar, so whatever you're craving, as long as you're a lady, it's your night to shine! Sorry boys, no drink specials for you- BUT if you are looking for a lady rather than a deal, come by and play dumb, "I had no idea it was Ladies Night!"
