Free Lunch to First 100 at BLVD 16 in Hotel Palomar


BLVD 16 at Hotel Palomar is introducing a their lunch service this week. To celebrate, starting 11:30 AM today, they’ll be giving out free lunches to the first 100 people to show up. You’ll get a sandwich, bag of chips and drink.

Crispy Chicken Sandwich

This should have the UCLA students in a tizzy. Yesterday, I got to try a few of their sandwiches, and the standouts were definitely the Reuben and the Crispy Chicken sandwich. These sandwiches, which go for $10 each when not given out for free, are a great portioned size and a good deal, anyway, for the price. The pickles are housemade and Chef Simon Dolinky – another native Wisconsinite like myself - regularly visits the farmer’s market for his ingredients.

Validation for valet is free for all guests visiting BLVD 16 for lunch ($5 during dinner), though this 100 free lunch promotion will be more of a grab-n-go kind of deal. Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Get over there and claim your sandwich! The countdown begins…

Mad Hatter Wine Pairing

Sure, Halloween is over – but there are still plenty other reasons to get festive!

Dean Hewitson, known as the “Mad Hatter” of Hewitson Wines, will be visiting Los Angeles tomorrow from South Australia on his U.S. tour celebrating the debut of his limited-release 2006 vintage Mad Hatter Shiraz.

There will be a wine reception followed by a five-course pairing dinner with the Shiraz as well as other Hewitson wines – all in a whimsical “Mad Hatter” setting for your merriment and enjoyment. You’re even encouraged to come in your own “mad hat” to participate in the fun!

Reserve your spot ASAP as they are limited.
