Now one of L.A.’s most treasured summer traditions, Barnsdall Park’s wine tastings regularly attract sell-out crowds. Perched atop Olive Hill on the west lawn of the historic Hollyhock House (which you can tour during the evening for an additional $15), the Barnsdall Friday fundraisers include fine selections of boutique wines provided by Silverlake 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. Though there used to be lots of kids running around, the event lawn is now 21-and-up—perfect for a date night. Proceeds support the park’s art programs and historic renovations.

This is one of my favorite events in Los Angeles during the summer months! Silverlake Wines hosts a wine tasting, while you can watch the sun set over the city. Though they have food trucks, I highly recommend you pack a picnic and blanket, and invite a group of friends. There is no happier hour!
Who else is going to this event this summer? It's one of my favorite during the season - I love how everyone just comes together for good wine, good food, sweet jams and a sunset. Every summer I try to go at least a couple times...still haven't made it inside the Hollyhock House though!
