Springtime On The Strip

It is difficult to tell in L.A., but spring is officially here. Yes, we still have mild temperatures, just as many flowers and enough sun to make the rest of the country bitter with envy, but there’s a little something extra special in the air this time of year.

To celebrate the changing season, businesses on The Sunset Strip are offering seasonal menus, new drinks, holiday brunches and events that focus on the fresh perspective spring — and ping pong tournaments — can bring.
