Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


silverlake wine.

One of my fave neighborhoods is Silverlake - so many great little shops, coffee spots, cafes, bars.  The best part about Silverlake is Silverlake Wine.  It is practically an institution in the world of wine!  My friends and I went to their famous Sunday pairing event, featuring Washington wines and catering by Heirloom LA.
In between bites of wild boar empanadas, chicken wrapped with bacon, tamales and fudge brownie with homemade banana ice cream for dessert, we sipped a white blend, 100% Marsanne (a surprise and usually paired with Roussane or Viognier) and a trio of red blends....
Whenever I am at Silverlake Wine, I always pick up a little Cake Monkey for dessert later....
Sunday tasting with culinary pairings at 3 pm, flight nights Mondays and Thursday 5-9 pm (bonus Let's Be Frank truck outside Thursdays!).  For more info: Silverlake Wine
