Come nosh with us, early evening on Saturday!

That’s right–it’s LA Metblogs’ first “Classic Eats” evening this Saturday. We’re doing it a little early because (1) we figure you might have plans for later that night and (2) Clifton’s Cafeteria closes early.

I’m attempting to make some silly bingo games in time for the get-together and I’m planning on raffling off a day of guest blogging on LA Metblogs (raffle tix are free for all attendees, I ain’t tryin’ to raise money).

We’ll meet up at Clifton’s at 5:30pm for “slightly depressing kitsch” (as stated on Chowhound), because there’s no kitsch like slightly depressing kitsch. Really, I just want to eat cubed jello out of those thick bakelite cafeteria bowls under the watchful gaze of fake deer. I can’t believe I’ve never been to Clifton’s, so I’m really looking forward to this.

Around 6:30 or 7 we’ll wander, stuffed with meatloaf and lemon meringue pie, over to the Bonaventure Hotel to enjoy after-dinner cocktails at their 360-degree rotating rooftop lounge, the BonaVista.

While we plan to create some sort of prepaid meal package for these events in the future, we’re goin’ lo-fi for our first event and you enjoy the privelege of purchasing your very own food (we ain’t gettin’ rich offa blogging)! So exciting!

Here’s our upcoming.com invite and Julia’s original post on the whole shebang.

  1. I have to tell you I think this is one of the most inspired ideas here yet. Revisiting history and getting to know the city better at the same time. Now if I can get my kids to drop out of sport and keep my wife in town long enough so we can attend!

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes a little kitsch with his kitchen. This is one of the reasons why I moved here. I can’t believe they got rid of Tail O’ the Pup before I went there. I won’t let that happen again. Looking forward to this!

  3. I don’t think I’ll be able to make the Clifton’s portion of the evening, but hopefully I’ll be able to stop by the BonaVista and say howdy.
