Revolver Opens Tonight, Bocuse d’Or Din in SD, More!

WEHO— Did video kill the radio star? In any event, Revolver Video Bar makes its comeback tonight and over right is a shot of the new bar. Owners Alfredo Diaz (Kokomo, K2) and Chris Miller (tv industry) revived this defunct gay bar which was replaced by East West in 2004. With Revolver's rebirth comes its signature music videos (there are 20! tv screens), movie mash ups, inexpensive drinks, and even its landmark revolving door. [EaterWire]

SANTA MONICA— Barman Alex Day (Death & Co.) is working on a list of libations soon to be available at Stella Rosa on Main Street. And yes, he's still working on that bar, too. [Grub Street]

SAN DIEGO— William Bradley is the executive chef at Addison in The Grand Del Mar and he's also part of the Culinary Council for Bocuse d’Or USA. Bradley is planning to host a pretty blockbuster affair on November 17 with a round of fantastic chefs.
