Memorial Day Weekend ushers in the start of summer in the southland, and that means a 3 day break bookended by craft beer! Here are a few spots to go for the kickoff and all the days in between.
The Sunset Strip Farmers Market
Although yesterday was the official 1st day of the Farmers Market, it runs every Thursday through September 25th and offers a place to get your craft beer, wine, oh and the occasional tomato or two. Entrance is free and it’s only $15 dollars to sample 6 craft beers!
Looking for a place to spend your long weekend, then take your pick from one of Ricardo Zarate’s many memorial day offerings! Mo-chica will be serving $25 sangria pitchers on both Sunday and Monday and Paiche’s happy hour will be available all day Monday including discounts on wine, cocktails, ceviches, and more. Lastly get your friends together and head to Picca for a $30 punch bowl blended with white and dark rum, Cava, lemon, honey, pineapple juice, and bitters.
The Tuesday after Memorial Day doesn’t have to mean the party is over, just make your way to Chaya Downtown and enjoy the 4th year of their outdoor summer beer garden which runs through August 29th 2014. A special Kaisen Menu will be introduced featuring the freshest local and Japanese seafood available. $1 oysters will be offered during the week as well as BoozySno-cones and two-tone nama draft beer bocktales.
Here’s to the start of an eclectic summer!
