It’s Monday, so for most people it is the beginning of the work week, but it can also be the beginning of a great week if you stop off between 6:30 pm – 8:30pm tonight at La Grande Orange in Santa Monica. Why stop by tonight? Because you can get unlimited pours of 25 wines from the West Coast (i.e. wineries between Santa Barbara and Washington State) for only $25. Yes you read that correctly, unlimited pours of 25 wines for $25, see Mondays aren’t so bad after all.

You can either stay for dinner (they will have nibbles passed during the wines pouring) or take something home from their menu like the braised Niman Ranch pork shoulder with apricot mustard glaze, the charred Black Cod with Kaffir Lime broth (both for $19.95), or the more traditional beach fare of Swordfish Tacos ($16.95), or a chili cheese burger($13.95). Whatever you chose, the dishes here are made fresh with organic products whenever possible, so you can eat well without worrying about additives.

Whatever you chose, chose a designated driver or a cab if you have wined your way up the coast because as much as you may not want to go to work tomorrow, it would still be a better option than not making it home tonight.
