Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Angelina in Chicago

October 26, 2012

Off to the Windy City this weekend to cavort with some minors (ages uno and tres, so no chances of sneaking them into the bar with fake IDs quite yet). And while there will be no bottomless mimosas action for US this weekend, if were we planning on getting sloppy Sunday morning this is probably where we’d go:

Brunch Spot: Angelina Ristorante – Chicago

Bottomless Hours: Saturday 11am – 2:30pm, & Sunday 10am – 3pm

Boozy Brunch Deal: $21 Brunch Entree + Bottomless Mimosas

Menu Highlights: Our eyes and hungry guts are obsessed with this Breakfast Croissant mentioned on the menu (canadian bacon, eggs and smoked mozzarella), though the good ‘ol BLT might be just as nice. There is also french toast, a Spanish fritatta, and a selection of salads as well as some pricier pastas.

The parent of the aforementioned minors tipped us off on this boozy brunch and gave it two thumbs up. This parent, though with many life obligations these days, still has a damn good palette/appetite and a thirst for the bright orange booze, so we trust her implicitly in this recommendation. Not to mention, with menu items typically running $8-$9  each, this means your bottomless booze is only an additional $11. SUCH a good deal!

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: St. Felix

October 19, 2012

We have been trying to track down the details on the St. Felix Bottomless Mimosa Brunch for what seems like forever. Obviously our efforts were of the laziest variety: checking their website, sending twitter messages, scanning Facebook. All futile efforts for the past couple months. And then we had the bright idea to call them… JACKPOT! And all the glorious boozy information is now in our hands:

Boozy Brunch Spot: St. Felix, Hollywood

Brunching Hours: 11am – ‘whenever’ (quoted straight from our source on the phone at St. Felix) 

Bottomless Deal: $20 Bottomless Mimosas w/ Entree Purchase + Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar (Not bottomless, cost varies depending on the ingredients you select)

Menu Highlights: No clue. There was mention from our lovely informer of ‘specialty brunch items’, and we see similar mention on their facebook page. But nary a detail is to be found. However, that Bloody Mary above looks like a meal in-and-of-itself so we’ll put that as the top brunch highlight for now. For their standard full menu of lunchy/dinnery items – check out this link.

Sunday Night Suppers at Culina

October 15, 2012

Most of the Sunday suppers we’re aware of around town are casual affairs with big bowls of pastas and salads, made with inexpensive but flavorful ingredients. Very easy going without a lot of fluff.

Obviously, Culina is too stylish to serve you vats of spaghetti and Caesar salad. So when they threw their hat into the Sunday Supper ring, they did so in a way that perfectly reflects the vibe of their restaurant and food: lots of fancy courses filled with lots of delicious, fresh, and impressive ingredients.

mmmm seafood pasta

Culina Sunday Suppers

Every Sunday 6-10pm

Cost: $39/Per Person

What: 4 courses that include: antipasti, pasta, entree, & dessert 

PSST: They are offering FREE CORKAGE during Sunday Supper! Woo hoo! 

Previous Sunday Supper menus have included Gorgonzola salad, cannellini bean+ tomato pasta, roasted baby chicken and panna cotta for dessert. All sound delicious and make us all the more excited to stop on by next Sunday for din din.

$4 Gets You Drunk & Fat at Gold Room in Hipsterville

October 8, 2012

The hip USC B-school kids tipped V off to this deal the other day. Obviously very little fluff is required here, the deal speaks for itself:

The Spot: The Gold Room (Echo Park)

The Deal: $4, One PBR +  One Shot of Cheap Tequila + Free Peanuts + Free Tacos (Upon Request)

The place is a total dive, but we love that about it. Cozy up to the bar, enjoy some sports on TV, and slug back multiple rounds of PBR+Shots for super cheap. There is a minimum credit card charge of $10, so if you are using plastic you will have to commit to at least three rounds, but you were probably going to do that anyway, right?

And make sure to ask for the tacos, what they lack in quality they make up for in quantity, as we hear they are unlimited.

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: The Hill

October 5, 2012

Between yesterday’s post on The Phoenix Happy Hour (La Cienega & Wilshire) and today’s post on The Hill brunch (Wilshire & Hamilton) you should be pretty well set this weekend in the BevHills/Restaurant Row part of town to get drunk+fat, on the cheap. Saving you just enough money to buy one small glass of vino at the SLS (painfully pricey, but possibly worth it for the people-watching value.) 

 

The Spot: The Hill Bar & Grill, Beverly Hills (East)

Brunching Hours: Sundays, 11am – 3pm

Boozey Brunch Deal: $10 Bottomless Mimosas w/ Purchase of Entree (+ $4 Bloody Marys, not bottomless though.)

Menu Highlights: No clue. They don’t have a brunch menu posted online or anywhere on the interwebs we could find so we’ll have to do some digging on this. But their standard menu looks up our alley with a variety of pizzas, tons of burger options (lamb burger – my fave!), salads, and american-style entrees like steak, porkchops, lobster ravioli, and pan seared Salmon. Really its a pretty darned large gastro-pub-ish menu. But you were only REALLY coming here for the booze anyway, right?

Happy Hour @ The Phoenix

October 4, 2012

Every time a new bar opens up in our ‘hood we get giddy with excitement – we are always looking for a new local spot to booze our weekends away. The Phoenix opened up last week in the old La Seine spot on what I guess it still called ‘Restaurant Row’ and is brought to you by the same guys as Surly goat so you know it’s gotta be good.

Knowing that we usually can’t wait for the weekend to kick off our boozing, we obviously were interested in finding out if The Phoenix had a happy hour, and hallelujah, they do.  Not only do they have a happy hour but (a) booze is priced at a wallet friendly $3 and (b) HH runs til 9pm.

Plus, we hear they’re in works for a boozy brunch. We can already tell we’re going to find ourselves here…a lot.
