Another Wine Bar does Brunch
It seems we can add wine bar brunches to the list of popular LA things like pop ups, food trucks and cupcakes. To continue the fun, head to Vintage Enoteca. Get your pelvic thrusts on with the Elvis Bruschetta (peanut butter, bacon, honey and banana), and for $12 you can keep the new bottomless Blackberry Sangria coming. I’m all shook up. Saturday-Sunday through summer, 11 am-4 pm; 7554 W Sunset Blvd.; 323.512.5278
