  • Monday

    Summer means longer days, which means longer hours at <a href="">Farmshop</a> at the Brentwood Country Mart and more time for fried chicken. Starting today, the restaurant and marketplace extends its hours - open later during the week, and earlier on Sunday for the fried chicken dinner. And even better news: <a href="">Sweet Rose Creamery</a> next door stays open until 11 PM daily, so an ice cream nightcap might be in order.<strong> [Also see: <a href="" target="_blank">7 Must-Try Booze-Soaked Ice Cream Treats in Los Angeles</a>]</strong><br>
