It's Friday and it's time to end the week by unwinding and letting loose, all while still having enough money in your account to pay your bills at the end of the month.
The perfect solution is Michael Mina's Terrace at XIV on Sunset. Just go at 6 pm and get $6-$8 cocktails (like the grapefruit cosmo pictured above), $6 menu items, and $6 valet parking (only good from 6-7 pm, it becomes $10 from 7 pm to closing). The good news for vegetarians (and meat eaters who want a break from eating beast) is that there are 35 items on the regular menu for them; vegans have 25 options.
The Happy Hour menu has unusual appetizers, like black truffle butter popcorn, hamachi and ahi tartare poppers (pictured above), tempura prawns, Caesar salad with a white anchovy,and some American inventions, like lobster corn dogs. The drinks include cane mojitos, a raspberry "lemonade", and glasses of bubbles or wine all at the Sunset Terrace $6 price.
Enjoy your TGIF drinks, food and parking, all for about $20 at one of the best terraces on Sunset; who says you can't have fun and save money at the same time? Not me.
