Most of our crew here at LA Art Party live in Venice…a couple in SM too. Venice is home to many incredible restaurants….

See Kathy’s Huffington Post article about the Taste of Venice. Here she spotlights the food of the many exceptional restaurants in the Venice area.

Well here are HappyHour-CandleStickCafea couple of favorites.

For a casual and inexpensive meal…Hang by the beach and enjoy the sunset. Summer or Winter…

Located right on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, Candle Café & Grill is a very “local” relaxed cafe…offering classic beach fare. We often meet our clients at thie local eartery…it’s also the pefect spot to watch the colorful Venice performers.

My favorite happy hour item is the pulled pork sandwich…for just $5. Lots more on the happy hour menu such as tacos, the fries are hand-cut. Breakfasts, appetizers, pastas, pizza, burgers, salads and popular entrees are the core of the six-page menu. Relax with one of 22 beers on draft, wine, or specialty cocktails. Try some recent additions to the menu: Hummus Platter, Vegetarian Chipotle Burger, or fresh Scottish Salmon Steak. They also offer tasty pizzas.
