5 restaurants..5 hours..Amazing food..Yummy drinks..A party bus..Laughter that turned me blue.. and a group of strangers that were all friends by the end of the day!
That's the Bon Appetit Belvedere Vodka Los Angeles Grub Crawl in a nutshell..
I was invited by the folks atSwell City Guide and This is Mission to spend my Saturday..eating and drinking at some of L.A.'s awesome new restaurants.
Here's how it went..
We started at the Roxy.. boarded a party bus as really polite somewhat quiet strangers and headed to our first stop Pour Vous, where we were greeted at the door with oysters and their delicious version of the French 75. Then we headed to Street for some Susan Feniger awesomeness..(anyone who has not been to Street go..immediately!) After Street we headed to The Spare Room for a little bowling, connect four, jenga and some of the most amazing spicy potatoes I have had. By this time back on the party bus strangers were becoming fast friends. After Spare Room we headed to Night + Market for a little Thai food and Thai beer. After Night + Market we got back on the party bus and headed to the last restaurant of the night Mozza 2 Go for some sparkling wine and wood fire pizza.. Then headed back to the roxy where it all started for a concert by the band Vacationer.
What made the Grub Crawl great was not just the party bus..Not just the mingling and chatting with the chef's and restaurant owners.. not just the drunken pole dancing on the party bus by the end of the night and not just the insane laughter... but the idea and amazing execution of food, fun and making new friends.
I started the day having no idea what to expect and ended the day with it being the best day of my summer so far!
If there is a Grub Crawl coming to a city near you I highly recommend jumping on that Party Bus!!
Thanks so much to Bon Appetit, Swell City Guide, This is Mission and Belvedere Vodka for a really great day!
