Omnipresent lines at Tender Greens, Culver City

ANYWHERE: We know they're opening in West Hollywood, heard they were still looking downtown, but the Tender Greens boys aren't stopping their salad train there. They're also looking at Burbank, Tarzana, Hollywood and maybe Santa Monica, but no dreaded 'C' words here: "We may have multiple locations, but we don’t see ourselves as a chain. Our goal is to build a company that believes wholeheartedly in sustainability. We’re not trying to build a behemoth." All they want are locations with lots of foot traffic from homes and businesses, outdoor space for sidewalk cafes, and plenty of parking. [GrubTrotters]

SANTA MONICA: Since it's hot as summer already, Wilshire restaurant starts "Neighborhood Barbecue Nights" Sunday, May 18. Get all your favorites: pulled kurobuta pirk, Santa Maria tri-tip, baby back ribs, grilled andouille sausage and a slew of sides (corn on the cob!). New summery cocktails have been added to the menu, too. If you thought it was tough to get a table on the patio before, ha. [EaterWire Inbox]

CULVER CITY: Wine & Spirits Magazine brings together some of LA's best and brightest wine industry talent at LA Hot Picks on May 22. The event will showcase affordable wines from across the globe and those who know how to pour them: soms from BottleRock, Comme Ca, Grace, Katana, Michael's, Osteria Mozza (don't harass Rosoff for reservations too much), Palate Food + Wine, Silverlake Wine, the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills and the Woodland Hills Wine Company. Food---and this is exciting---supplied by Let's Be Frank among others. It all goes down at MODAA Gallery in Culver City. Tickets are $75 and all proceeds to the Surfrider Foundation. [EaterWire Inbox]
