PreferDine Launches Today!

Thanks to some Facebook posts, Tweets, and a mass email I sent out, many of you might know that I've started working with a new side called PreferDine that will be offering amazing deals at some of Los Angeles's best restaurants including Melisse, FIG and Campanile.

Now for the exciting part: the site launched today! We've posted the first two deals, one for restaurants, and one for wine. Our first restaurant is one of the first Asian fusion restaurants in LA, Mako, right on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, and if you've lived in LA for a while and haven't tried it, you should be sure to get there right away. If it's an old favorite, you should stop by to see what's new, because the menu has all sorts of interesting new additions.

The first wine we're featuring is a Pinot Noir from one of my all-time favorite wineries in Sonoma: Hanzell Vineyards. Hanzell is one of Sonoma's most historic wineries, and they produce really fantastic Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. It's also situated in a beautiful building on a gorgeous plot of land high above the Valley, so it's one of the best places to visit in Sonoma.

In the meantime, sign up for PreferDine by going to their site today:, and go to the site to check out the deals by clicking on the links below!
