Why Is This Night Special?
It's a given that weekend nights were made for going out, which includes dining. Even though LA is pretty close to a 24/7/365 town (close in some respects, far far from it in others, but that's another issue entirely), some restaurants find themselves with empty tables every now and then. One thing that many hot eateries have come up with to draw folks in are specialty nights, where things are shaken and stirred or just a tad bit different from the norm. LAist has a roundup of some current special nights running at some top restaurants. Because nothing lasts forever, we suggest you double check with the restaurant to be sure the event is on, and what time it runs before you head out.
We Ho's O-Bar has launched what they call a “Sunday Share"--a very large-plate format created for the entire table, warm and fuzzy family style. Guests enjoy a choice of starter, with entrées and sides sized to share. Priced at $15 per person, the dinner is adjusted to suit the number of diners at each table, and is topped off with the chance to build your own sundae. And the sharing's not just for food; diners are also encouraged to bring their own iPods, with a “shared” connection that will allow you to create your own juke box.

Also in We Ho, and also a mere $15 per head, Dominick’s is offering Sunday suppers on their outdoor patio. Diners can enjoy a three-course Italian meal planned by Chef and owner Brandon Boudet for $15 per person. The family-style menus will change weekly. And to liven up the meal, Dominick's house wine, Dago Red, will be available for $10 a bottle on Sunday nights. The menu will be served from 6 p.m.-1 a.m.
