Fried Chicken Night At The Churchill

Crispy fried chicken, cheddar jalapeño biscuits and a cold beer—need we say more? It seems Angelenos will be sporting elastic waistlines (and a large appetite) come every Thursday night at West Hollywood’s The Churchill until the end of the year. Virginia native chef Michael Bryant is whipping up all the classics, like slow cooked green beans with bacon and savory mashed potatoes. Now that’s southern hospitality at its finest. Order a plate for one or share chicken with Allagash Curieux beer starting at 4pm until it runs out!

Tanabata Celebration at Hinoki & the Bird

If you’re in need of a place to celebrate the Tanabata Star Festival—a Japanese holiday commemorating the annual meeting of the stars Altair and Vega—look no further than Hinoki & the Bird. Every Tuesday–Friday night throughout July, the restaurant will host an intimate reservation-only dinner for 10 people. The colorful five-course meals are unpredictable, since the ingredients depend on what chefs Brandon Kida and Kei-Ichi Kurobe find at the market on any given day. To complete the Tanabata celebration, every guest will get a card to write down a wish and hang on a wall of bamboo. Make a reservation by calling 310-552-1200.

Tannins & Tans

Upstairs, the Ace's rooftop bar, is pretty sweet on its own: great views, a solid DJ, a pool to lounge around while looking fabulous. To up the ante, the hotel is starting Tannis & Tans: wine-focused evenings that introduce bargoers to some of LA's best indie wines. The next few events feature Hoxie (Jul 29), Oeno (Aug 12) and Field Recordings (Aug 26), all for around $5-$10 per pour. Check out the Ace's calendar for more info.

Cur-ATE Dinner Series

Fine arts and culinary creations come together again for the Cur-ATE summer and fall 2015 season. This popular dinner series, led by ArtBites founder Maite Gomez-Rejón, explores the historical and societal role of food through art—and we're not talking Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans. The intimate gallery tours are followed by a three-course meal inspired by the evening's theme; Ray's & Stark Bar's chef Viet Pham heads the kitchen.

Friday Night Wine Tastings

Now one of LA's most treasured summer traditions, Barnsdall Park’s wine tastings regularly attract sell-out crowds. Perched atop Olive Hill in the west lawn of historic Hollyhock House (which you can tour during the evening for $12) Barnsdall Fridays includes fine selections of boutique wines provided by Silver Lake Wine with a spectacular sunset and 360 degree views of the city. Bring along a blanket and a picnic basket, or just nosh on the variety of food trucks parked up there. There tend to be lots of kids running around, so feel free to bring your own tots and join the fun or, for you singles, stake out a secluded spot to avoid the madness.

An Evening on the Beach

Fingerlicking grub, tasty cocktails, and ocean views—it must be the 6th annual "An Evening on the Beach" bash. Back again in support of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels of LA, chefs and attendees will fill the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica with mouthwatering morsels we all know and love. The event takes place on August 6 and promises snacks off the grill, wine and cocktail tastings, mixed with great music, the sun and barefeet. If that doesn't persuade you, then maybe the chef's line-up will. With over 15 chefs, you can enjoy the likes of Micah Wexler (Wexler's Deli) and Dahlia Narvaez (Pizzeria and Osteria Mozza), while washing down your food with specialty cocktails at the martini bar. Tickets are $175 and include parking, and all proceeds go towards providing homebound seniors and other vulnerable residents with over 4,000 needed meals.
