No more FEED on Abbot Kinney

There's apparently been a semi-quiet shutter along Abbot Kinney in Venice, as FEED lasted only a couple of years before pulling the plug due to, allegedly, that notorious neighborhood death knell: increased rent. Per this post, the final night of service was Saturday, though there are apparently plans to reemerge elsewhere.

Get into The Coconut Club

Here's a really fun breakdown from Modern Tiki Lounge of what you can expect the next time you get tickets for The Coconut Club, the long-running Tiki dinner concept currently doing work inside Sonny's Hideaway in Highland Park. Bonus: you get to eat/drink stuff like this.

Digging into Ozu East Kitchen

LA Mag spent some time with Atwater Village local Paul Yi, who is the man behind Ozu East Kitchen on Glendale Boulevard. The longtime film producer says his international travels inspired the menu, and along the way points out a few menu highlights that he says help to define what Ozu is really trying to go for.

The Walker Inn's newest inspiration

The cerebral cocktail menus at The Walker Inn often find their muse in something ethereal or heady, like "Pacific Coast Highway," which is what inspired the ingredients and drinks for their initial menu layout last year. To commence 2016, they're making creative libations as an homage to Alice Waters and her iconic restaurant Chez Panisse.

ERB launches happy hour

As if you needed another reason to make it to the Arts District to experience one of the city's best new drink spots: Everson Royce Bar is now doing happy hour. Available weekdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. only, the reduced price menu includes $7 cocktails and a $10 burger and fries deal, among other things.

Getting it wrong at Angel City Brewery

Apparently not everyone knows how to pronounce their favorite beer styles, as evidenced by this fun video from the Angel City Brewery team. Even lagers and IPAs get mispronounced all the time, though the brewery's signature sriracha-brewed beer earns the most misidentifications. Check it out.
