 Wine and food experts will guide guests on a distinctive tour of wines, cheeses and chocolates from the early 1900’s. The event will showcase wines from the pioneer regions born in the early 1900’s; a time just before prohibition when the vineyards started to stretch throughout California.

While sampling these historic vineyard wines, guests can indulge in tasty pairings with artisan cheeses from the old continent, directly imported by Nicole’s Gourmet Food in South Pasadena, including cheeses such as Brillat-Savarin created in the 1930’s. Guests can also indulge in the sweeter side of things with Grand Cru chocolates from Valrhona; featuring some of the best cocoa plantations from around the world.

To top off this culinary tour, Venice-based Dustbowl Revival will be performing its funky mix of folk-blues orchestra music fused with old school gypsy rhythms and bluegrass.

When the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club (LAAC) first opened its doors in downtown Los Angeles in 1880, it set the standard for a private membership club and athletic facility. Today the club still holds true to that standard. With over 88,000 square feet of fitness facility, the club features everything from yoga to squash, an indoor 25 yard pool, court sports, group exercise programs, personal training and more.

For inquiries about how to become a traditional LAAC club member, please contact the membership department at (213) 630-5200 or laac@laac.net.

Recently, with a multi-million dollar hotel renovation, the hotel has quickly become the premium boutique-style downtown hotel. The Hotel at The Los Angeles Athletic Club features 72 completely renovated urban chic hotel rooms including nine incomparable themed suites. From the minute a guest steps out from the elevator and begins the journey to their room, their eyes will be transfixed by the beautifully rich hallways and the nostalgic sepia tone prints of the famed Olympian members stretching back over 100 years. With the new Olive Club Membership- a new rewards program granting guests access to the hotel, banquet facilities and fitness facility- anyone can take advantage of the club experience.

To book a room reservation at the newly-revamped hotel at the LAAC now, please call (800) 421-8777 or visit www.laac.com. Introductory room rates start at $149/night.
