Wine Tasting & Hot Dogs @ Silver Lake Wines
SILVER LAKE WINES has their Thursday night flights from 7pm-9pm for only $12...and the LETS BE FRANK Gourmet Hot Dog Truck is parked right in Front of Silver Lake wines all evening. A little wine tasting and a fancy hot dog...ummmm sounds like a good time!!! The tasting consists of a 3 wine flight. A flight consists of a sampling of three wines of a particular category (it may be a grape, a winemaker, or a region) to compare and contrast. They offer both red and white flights. Wine and a Food Truck, What could be better!
Silver Lake Wines is the best boutique wine store in LA. It's not the biggest selection of wine. That honor probably goes to the Wine House. But it's all hand-selected, and the guys (and gal) who work there know what they are doing. One of them used to be the sommelier at Campanile! The level of customer service is great. They really work with your tastes and price range to find something right. I like that the table by the door is all under $15, and the rest is organized by region. There are also some nice premium wines as well.
Lets Be Frank Hot Dogs was founded by Sue Moore and Larry Bain, fast-food visionaries who started the company in 2005 with the simple goal of changing the world one hot dog at a time. Sue, formerly the "meat forager" for Berkeley, CA's famed Chez Panisse, and Larry, longtime restaurant professional, member of the San Francisco Sustainable Food Systems team, and advocate of the benefits of local, healthy foods, joined forces to return the much-demeaned hot dog to its rightful position: an icon for a healthy food system. Their goal was that their frank would become a way to nourish both eaters and growers. Let's be Frank supports the ever-shrinking group of family farmers and ranchers committed to raising their animals in a humane, conscientious, and healthy manner and in so creates dogs gone good.
