Peninsula Hotel Hosts Taste of Beverly Hills Rooftop Cocktail Hour With Half-Price Tickets: Thursday, August 26, 2010

Speckled Jalapeno Margarita | Patron Reposado, Citrus Juices, Grand Marnier - muddled with Jalapeno

Ever tried out the Peninsula Hotel’s rooftop cocktail hour? Well, tomorrow’s a good time as any to check it out, as from 5 – 7 PM they’ll not only be offering drinks at half-price like every week but also a buy-one-get-one-free deal for tickets to Taste of Beverly Hills. All-weekend passes will be discounted to $350 from $500. (You can take a look at the regular prices here.)

Peninsula Hotel Rooftop Garden Restaurant and Bar

Choose one of their signature cocktails (regularly $16) – like the Kumquat & Citrus Punch (Ketel One, Malibu Rum, muddled kumquats, citrus juices), the Grape Cocktail (Hendricks Gin, Grapes, St. Germain Elderflower, lemon juices, club soda) or the Speckled Jalapeno Margarita (above). Or if beer or wine are more your speed, be glad because those are half-off, too. So before you go, take a peek at the schedule and list of attendees for each session so you know which one(s) you’d like to attend this Memorial Day Weekend (Thursday, September 2 – Sunday, September 5).

And as you’re basking in the sun or shade in the early evening on a rooftop in Beverly Hills, take comfort that your savings on Taste tickets will go towards your half-off happy hour libations. Don’t forget to enjoy your view! (And also don’t forget to bring your valet ticket to the rooftop to validate for discounted parking.)

The Hungry Cat Is Older Than My Cat: Last Day of Half-Off Specials Today

The bad news is, I rarely blog on the weekends. The good news is, the second of two days of The Hungry Cat’s 5-year Anniversary Celebration is today, all day – therefore, there’s still time to take advantage.

The celebratory special isn’t shabby, either. How is 50% off specialty cocktails, draft beer and all bottles of wine?! Though I can’t say I’m a regular, I’ve rarely had a bad cocktail at The Hungry Cat. Perhaps the only thing that would make tonight better is if they had simultaneously made this one of their Steamed Blue Crab Nights!

And, according to their latest tweet, after 5:30 PM they will be featuring 50% off oysters (grilled ones typically run $15 for a half-dozen) “and more”. And what exactly does that mean? Don’t look at me. Pop in to their Vine Street location to find out.
