Lawry’s “Winning” First Tailgate

This year we are excited to have themed menus for each tailgate. Our first tailgate held last Saturday, September 11, USC vs. Virginia, was a total “victory”. The theme for this game was ALL-AMERICAN. We served up yummy Crispy Fried Chicken, Three-Cheese Mac!!, Succotash Salad and Scalloped Potatoes. As if that weren’t enough, to satisfy the three hours pre-game time, we made sure to include our crowd-pleasing Prime Rib and Turkey Sandwiches, Creamed Corn, and our famous Lawry’s Potato Chips! Dessert included juicy watermelon , blondies and brownies!!

We were so excited to see everyone (both new and old friends). We actually doubled our count from last year, with 120 attendees. Every Lawry’s tailgate entry fee includes three hours pre-game of unlimited food and drinks. For this reason, we wanted to make sure to upgrade our bar and add a little extra fun for our guests. We featured Asombroso Tequila and had a margarita station. Asombroso made a refreshing Pink Lemonade garnished with a strawberry.

Our Lawry’s bar had the following specialty cocktail menu to choose from, in addition to a full bar.

Trojan Mint Julep
Jim Beam Bourbon with Mint Infused Simple Syrup

Lawry’s Breeze
Vodka, Cranberry, splash of Grapefruit Juice

The Fumble
Jack Daniels, Sour mix, and Pineapple Juice

Meet Virginia
Asombroso Tequila “Spiked” Pink Lemonade

Quarterback Hound
Vodka and Grapefruit Juice

“College Water”
Samuel Adams
Sierra Nevada

Even while we were setting up, the buzz was felt all around. Everyone was so excited to see Lawry's at the Coliseum. We spoke to passersby who inquired about joining our next tailgate event.

Lawry’s Takes Part in Taste of B. H. 90210

Do you remember the "90210" tune? Well, we were playfully enjoying walking down memory lane yesterday as the date fell right on 09.02.10!! A lot has changed since Brenda and Brandon came into town, but Beverly Hills is still in a class of its own.
In celebration of all great things our 90210 zip code has to offer, Food & Wine magazine has hosted its first annual Taste of Beverly Hills. Yesterday was the first of a four-day epicurean event celebrating the best food and wine that is both local and from around the world.

Lawry’s joined this fabulous party by serving up plates of Prime Rib sandwiches, our famous potato chips, and our sweet creamed corn! The line was never ending as foodies and prime rib lovers came back for second and even third helpings. There was live music, art, and lots of beer, wine, and alcohol for everyone to enjoy. Celebrity sightings of the night included The Kardashians, the new cast of "90210", and Larry King (among others!).

One of the best compliments came from Jay Weston, producer and publisher of Jay Weston’s Restaurant Newsletter. Jay noted, what we experienced last night first hand,  “…the most popular booth was that of Lawry's The Prime Rib, the Beverly Hills eatery on La Cienega which is so ingrained in the meat-loving sensibilities of L.A. natives that it is the first stop to which I take foreign visitors to the city. It's all downhill after that prime rib experience” and last night our very own “General Manager Todd Johnson and his team were dishing out succulent sandwiches of ruby red beef, some 400 pounds of it by the end of the night.”

We love what we serve, The Best Prime Rib In The World! It is our treat and honor to participate in the First Annual Taste of Beverly Hills Festival. We enjoyed seeing a lot of our familiar Lawry’s diners as well as meeting new faces. If you did not attend last night, we will be joining the festivities once more this Sunday, September 5, 2010.

Lawry's 2010 Tequila Tasting Hits High Marks!

Our beautiful Oak room was lined with long tables featuring beautiful, hand-blown bottles and glassware from all of our vendors. Everything was ready for the highly anticipated event of this month, our 2010 Tequila Tasting.
As the line outside the door grew, eager faces waited to check in and begin sampling our featured tequilas. Many of our guests came back to visit us from our recent Spirit Tasting in June. Glasses in hand, everyone made their rounds and delighted their palettes.

Unlike our Spirit Tasting, which included specialty cocktails made from each spirit, this Tequila Tasting event was designed to sample this spirit in its purest form. It was all about sipping and taking the time to taste the full bodied flavors each tequila had to offer.

Our featured tequilas' inspired our Chef to make very tempting passed hors d'oeuvres:

Mouth-watering Chipotle Sliders!

Savory, flakey Beef

Oh, and to be so lucky to indulge in the Smoked Gouda-Chorizo Jalapeno Poppers! Foodies in the room favored our sweet Peaches with Serrano Ham and Basil!

Upcoming Events!

Chef Walter Eckstein’s fabulous annual Oktoberfest Dinner will be Wednesday, October 6th, at 7 PM. Don’t miss this extravagant Bavarian buffet with classic ‘Fest beers. Click here to inquire more information.

Our four course Scotch Dinner (back by popular demand!) with top shelf classic malts of Scotland is scheduled on Wednesday November 3rd, 7p.m. Cost for each event is $75 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity!
Till the next one! Cheers!

Lawry's: "Yummiest Wedding Ever"

Katie Lee and her creative staff @ Bella Destinee are no strangers to creating the ideal wedding. Katie had the opportunity to have fun with her bride-to-be by planning a wedding at Lawry's. Jennifer Chang, the bride, works for our PR company and decided to celebrate her big day here. Katie blogged about Jennifer and Shin's sweet April wedding. She reminded her readers that back in April, many imports from Holland were impacted due to the volcano eruption in Iceland. True to a spring wedding, peonies and tulips were the flowers of choice for Jennifer. However, with planes on the ground, such lovely flowers were not reaching U.S. shores.

Luckly for Jennifer, Katie's good friend Kerim from My Wedding Blooms, saved the day. As you can see from the pictures, beautiful, fluffy pink flowers were seen around the room and on their pure white wedding cake.
So, what made Jennifer and Shin's wedding the "yummiest?" According to Katie, it was the fabulous table of sweets tempting all of the guests in the main dinning room! Looking at the dessert bar, you couldn't help but think "Pretty in Pink." Embellished with White angels, pink linen, and seemingly bottomless candy jars, this dessert station satisfied everyone's sweet tooth!

Wedding at Lawry's: A Thank You Note!

Whenever we get a note of thanks, we like to share some of these notes on our blog and say thank you back! Thank you for letting us be part of your special day by having your wedding at Lawyr's. Jennifer and Cory Schepp booked their wedding without ever having eaten a meal here at Lawrys. After they booked the wedding, we invited them in to have dinner with their family as our guests. We wanted them to have the whole "Lawry's" experience.
