Smoke City Char Bar Opens in LA 

The new Smoke City Char Bar that opened its doors in March in Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District demonstrates a few things. One, there’s still room for restaurants and catering menus that feature meat, even in LA. That’s especially true when the meat—including beef tri-tip, brisket, pulled pork, baby back ribs, and sausage—are locally sourced and smoked in-house, as is this case here. Two, options to red meat and pork, including vegetarian/vegan alternatives, are always essential for group dining. At Smoke City those options include turkey breast, chicken, Pacific salmon, and jackfruit. Three, cocktails elevate every dining experience. Here, they’re inspired by bourbon-based drinks from the South, including mint juleps, along with boozy lemonades and iced tea. And, four, even a casual dining experience benefits from thoughtful design; in this case, industrial chic with gold ribbon lighting constructed from recycled resin, and a spacious patio with wood and iron upholstered bechnes and décor in bright orange and blue.

New Group Venues in Temecula

 

We never outgrow the pleasure of an Easter egg hunt. That’s the thinking behind a promotion by Visit Temecula. While the city’s annual Easter egg hunt will take place on April 16 in three different locations, the visitor’s bureau promo is monthlong. Visitors, whether leisure travelers or part of a group, who book a midweek stay in Temecula Valley during the month of April might just find an Easter egg with a $50 Visa card inside under their pillow.

The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.
