A Wine Tasting Gets You into the Los Angeles Athletic Club
Take a look at downtown Los Angeles as you may never have seen it before-- from the rooftop patio of the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club.
Founded in 1880, the private club opens its doors this Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. for a wine, cheese and chocolate tasting that will be co-sponsored by L.A. Wine Tasting.
There will be light appetizers too and Valrhona Grand Cru chocolates to test the claim that red wines go well with chocolate.
A vintage welcome cocktail will carry out the historic theme, along with old-timey tunes from The Dustbowl Revival, a Venice-based folk-blues orchestra.
Tickets are $66 and must be ordered in advance. They will not be sold at the door. L.A . Wine Tasting has ticket information on its web page under "Soirees." The Los Angeles Athletic Club is located at 432 W. 7th St. (213) 625-2211. Partygoers will check in in the lobby.
