My last memories of the Sunset Room were staying after a Mediabistro mixer and watching a burlesque act on stage. Wasn’t all that impressed seeing as I’d never returned. But apparently that’s all gone now and replaced by one of the many hipster steakhouses that have popped up around L.A., Sterling Steakhouse. This one–brought to you by the same crew who brought you the White Lotus and situated next to the celebrity-thumping Cabana Club– is described by LA.com as “a dark, romantic, bustling, glamorous restaurant that fits the Hollywood nabe to a tee.” But that’s not the exciting part.
What is is the restaurant’s “Wine Wednesdays” where you get edumacated by house sommelier, and contributer to Bon Appetit‘s wine tasting panel, Jonathan Mitchell over 5 to 6 wines and “Sterling Signature” hors d’oeuvres for 20 bucks. But wait, there’s more. This coming Wednesday the 7th, L.A. networking group, L7, is throwing one of its mixers at the Sterling’s wine event. And instead of just the 5-6 wines to taste, you’ll get about 12 for the same price. And get to meet with other youngish professionals. This one I’m actually going to. I know. Shocker.
L7 also invites guests to stay for dinner and partake of most any wine on the menu for half-off. Umm, I really don’t think I’ll be able to fit in a steak dinner after all that wining and dining, but thanks!
