In honor of their five-year anniversary, L & E Oyster Bar will be offering week-long specials that you will not want to miss.

Start your night off at this Silver Lake eatery with these complimentary items, then stay for a delicious meal that will make you wish it was their anniversary all the time.
Free Chili Day at Philippe's
Iconic Chinatown mainstay, Philippe the Original, knows how tough this L.A. winter can be and is giving out free chili to warm you up. With the purchase of a sandwich, the first 500 customers will receive a voucher for a free cup of their signature chili with any toppings (shredded cheddar, beans and onions). The chili comes courtesy of Dolores Chili, which has been sold exclusively at Philippe's since the 1970s.
Five-course wine dinner at Officine Brera
Northern Italian cuisine meets Southern Italian wine at Officine Brera during a five-course dinner featuring I Favati Wines from Cesinali, Italy. Each dish will be paired with red and white wines, and winemaker Rosanna Petroziello will be in attendance to guide guests through the different varieties. Dinner will include beef cheek stuffed potato ravioli with foraged mushroom ragu to be paired with a glass of Campi Taurasini 2010, and a spit-roasted California leg of lamb with rosemary potatoes to be paired with a glass of Taurasi 2004, just to name a few. Reservations are required through Table 8, and valet parking is available for $7.
Uncorked Wine Festival
Fifty wineries, food trucks, music and a beautiful setting—sounds like a perfect Saturday to us. Uncorked Wine Fest returns to Union Station on January 21, sending wine fiends into a frenzy with over 50 wineries offering their best varietals. There will also be a Champagne wine bar, an international wine market and a blind tasting bar to kickstart your wine education. General admission will be able to sip from 6-9pm, while VIP gets an extra hour to imbibe starting at 5pm.
