Wednesday special: Spare Room's newest $7 cocktail
The Spare Room, the swank bar-meets-vintage-bowling-alley at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, has a new Wednesday special for the spring: Get beverage director Naomi Schimek's Barbarossa cocktail for $7 and a crispy falafel sandwich for $5, from 8 to 10 p.m. That's along with $3 beer and half-price bowling too.
The Barbarossa? It's black-tea-infused Beefeater gin with tarragon-Meyer lemon shrub and a little Cabernet topped with a splash of soda and garnished with a sprig of tarragon and a pickled Peppadew pepper. How's that for hump day?
