One less scoop shop, for now
Sweet Rose Creamery is shutting down its Beverly Boulevard location for the upcoming colder seasons. The restaurant announced the break (which starts today) on social media, saying “with increasing labor and operating costs, it unfortunately doesn’t make sense for a small, family-run restaurant group like ours to keep this store open during the slower months.” Reps for Sweet Rose say they’ll either reopen in the spring or early summer, or put something else in down the line.
Laughing and eating
The comedy and food show Amuse Bouche is back at Melody in Virgil Village. Comedian Karl Hess from food podcast Yelling About Pâté is set to host, with Steve Samson from Rossoblu and Kronnerburger from San Francisco handling food.
Movie and a meal
It’s movie night at the Firehouse Hotel in Downtown. A portion of the property’s outdoor restaurant and lounge area is being converted to a plush screening spot every Monday night, with this evening’s feature none other than Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Growing the brand
Sunlife Organics is jumping into new territory. The healthy-eating company has agreed to expand to Texas next, reports Eater Austin, with a new smoothie and bone broth shop on South Congress.
Party by the water
Newport Beach Wine & Seafood is happening October 3 through 6. The annual event includes a ton of local culinary talent, from John Tesar and Antonia Lofaso to Shirley Chung, Nobu Matsuhisa, Brian Huskey, and beyond. Tickets are available now.
Meanwhile, local do-good organization Food Forward is teaming up with more than a dozen local restaurants in October. The plan is to use harvested seasonal ingredients (this time it’s pomegranate) in a dish, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the non-profit. Participants include Redbird, Proof Bakery, La Casita Mexicana, and more.
Ma’am Sir is teaming up with the folks from Melrose pop-up Burgerdaddy tomorrow night. Expect classic burgers as well as boozy shakes and more, starting at 4 p.m. in Silver Lake.
