  • Sadie's Bitters Floats

    We haven't hit the solstice yet, but Memorial Day is behind us and summer, for all intents and purposes, is here. Which means your ice cream and alcohol consumption will likely increase, and Hollywood's Sadie is lending a helpful hand in both departments with its bitters based boozy floats. The flavors change regularly, but the Chartreuse ice cream float made with Bubble Up was our favorite from the last time we visited.

  • Saffron Haze

    Kevin Kelley's idiosyncratic wines have helped him develop a strong following in the Bay Area. But the further south you get from his Santa Rosa base, the wines he makes are less well known and more difficult to come by. That's changing now, though, thanks to a number of L.A. retailers and restaurants that have picked up his skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc-Pinot Gris blend, Saffron Haze. This orange wine is perfect for summer grilling fare--even steak.

  • Fox Pizza Bus

    This new mobile pizza outfit is a sight to behold: a double-decker Scottish transit bus outfitted with a wood-burning pizza oven. Chef Mike Fox makes some lovely pizzas on the bus, topping his thin, crisp crust with meats from Lindy & Grundy and produce procured at the Santa Monica Farmers Market. You can find the bus parked near Handsome Coffee Roasters during lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
