Roscoe's Names Dish After Obama, WeHo Block Party, Chef DJ Olsen Leaves Lou

New, 8 comments

AROUND TOWN— Obama is in town for that epic $40k/head fundraiser dinner cooked by Wolfgang Puck taking place at George Clooney's house in The Valley, and on another Obama-related note, Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles has done re-named a dish after The President. The Country Boy is now Obama's Special or three wings for $8.90 (plus waffle or potato salad or French fries). Bam. [TMZ]

WEHO— Those guys from The Hudson and The Churchill, Beau Laughlin, Brett Cranston, and Michael Jay, are throwing their 2nd annual block party on May 20 at The Hudson, the Bank of America parking lot adjacent to The Hudson, in the street, and in the Memorial Park across the street. Why should you attend? Because admission is just $10 now or $15 at the door, they have 25 bands set to play between 11AM and 11PM, there will be four full bars, and a long list of eats from their two restaurants. Funds benefit SOVA Community Food and Resource Program. [EaterWire]

HOLLYWOOD— Lou Amdur left Lou last month, and now his longtime chef DJ Olsen will decamp as of June 7. [LAT]
