sips and sweets

On Sunday, Dec. 7, we’ll be at LA Weekly’s Sips & Sweets, a dining, drinking and shopping event happening from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at new nighttime destination The Majestic Downtown and The Reserve. Look for the Amoeba booth—we’ll have holiday gift certificates and our prize wheel.

Tickets are $40 for presale general admission or $45 at the door (children’s tickets are $25, $30 at the door). A ticket gets you unlimited sweets sampling, eight sips from the mixologists and access to the holiday vendor village.

Sips & Sweets features drinks from local mixologists and sweets from bakers and pastry chefs that work at various places around L.A. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit Food Forward, which provides fresh produce that would otherwise go to waste to people in need.

The Majestic Downtown and The Reserve are located 650 South Spring Street in Downtown L.A. The refined Majestic is a venue that sits in the former Bank of America headquarters, in a building constructed in 1921, with high ceilings, hand-painted frescoes and bronze ornamentation. It also houses The Reserve, a bar that pays homage to the building’s past with a vault door that reveals an illuminated inside.
