The menu includes: wood pigeon, hoshigaki persimmon, verjus, foie gras, brussel sproutsfrom Becerra, Tracht’s pot roast and other surprises. $95.

POETRY
The Actors Gang Axis Mundi Series hosts an evening of poetry performed by the LA award-winning teen poetry troupe, the Get Lit! Players. It’s a pay-what-you-can event, and the proceeds benefit the The Gang's community outreach programs and some events co-benefit The Veteran’s Project.

STORIES
The Moth LA holds its monthly Eastside edition tonight at El Cid. With the theme of “homecoming,” storytellers are asked to prepare a five-minute story on returning to your roots, maybe even for the holidays. Reading from notes is not allowed. Hosted by Brian Finklestein, doors open at 6 pm and stories begin at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $8 at the door.
