Earlier this month I learned about Departure Restaurant + Lounge’s new dry menu—AKA nonalcoholic cocktails. It’s a common thing these days for some people to cut out alcohol during the first month of the year, but there are also some of us that simply have a low tolerance for alcohol—being a “lightweight,” to use a term in common parlance.

As you can see, the windows are papered over (that usually means something new is coming); myriad people have been coming and going; also, there was a little box on the side of the building parallel to Sandy Blvd (it used to hold Pono Soul Farm Kitchen’s menu for the day) that contained an ad for the space, and that ad is also gone.
While walking in the neighborhood, I spied this poster up at the Hollywood Sizzle Pie.
Yes, the Santa Slice is making a return. From what I could tell from online media, they did this in 2015 and it caused a lot of buzz. As you can see in the photo, the Santa Slice is an 18-inch slice—basically the size of a whole pizza. Continue reading “Santa Slice at Sizzle Pie Is Back”
