Before heading across the street to the UCLA Hammer Museum for a discussion entitled “Is there such a thing as L.A Cuisine?” moderated by my food hero Jonathan Gold** (Pulitzer prize winning food critic for L.A Weekly magazine), I met up with friends Alisa and Melanie for happy hour at Palomino in Westwood Village. It was also great to be within walking distance of work! Palomino’s happy hour is from 4PM-7PM and every night after 10PM. It features 1/2 off appetizers, $5 pizzas, $4 Budweiser drinks, House Merlot, House Chardonnay and Cosmic Ritas. Get there early—it gets crowded quickly!

We started with the King Crab and Artichoke Dip with Parmesan, sliced onions, and served with cracked pizza crust ($14, but $7 at happy hour!)
Alisa and I each sampled the sangria—red and white. They were both excellent.
We finished off with the Rotisserie Chicken Pizza with roasted red peppers, sliced onions, marinara, Mozzarella and Parmesan (ordinarily $11, but only $5 at happy hour!)
