NFL @ 25 Degrees, Food @ Library Bar
Two reasons to hit up the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood today with an appetite. 25 Degrees is launching some new game-day deals starting today. The specials include $7 chili cheese fries, buffalo wings and prime rib nachos - prepped to perfection and served to share. Plus, inside the hotel’s Library Bar - an unprecedentedly distinguished menu featuring delicious small plates such as bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese, fig and prosciutto crostini, and spicy tuna on crisp eggplant served with sweet soy. The drinks there are divine, too!
