All gold everything
Food & Wine has a inside look at 21 Royal, the massively monied private dinner party at 21 Royal inside Disneyland. The opulent affair runs $15,000 for a dinner experience, and happens inside a two-bedroom on-site residence once envisioned as a private home for Walt and Lillian Disney themselves, though it was not completed before Walt Disney’s death. There are views galore, plenty of gilded touches, lots of wines to enjoy, and luxe ingredients spread across seven courses of hand-foraged ingredients and A5 Kobe pastrami.
The Bell saves
It’s apparently national Saved By the Bell Day, which means the pop-up Saved By the Max is doing two hours of no-reservations dining today only, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Want in on the immersive experience in West Hollywood? Better line up fast.
