To Live and Di(n)e in LA is a bi-monthly, intimate, 40-person supper club, where guests will sit down for dinner with the ghosts of the most infamous figures in Los Angeles’ true crime history, as they navigate the city’s sordid past through cuisine, cocktails, and cabaret-type performances. The first edition of this unique dining experience took place at Think Tank Gallery, and was a sold-out success.
In To Live and Di(n)e in LA, guests will sit down for dinner with the dead, as they come face-to-face with Elizabeth Short, better known as the Black Dahlia, and Dr. George Hill Hodel, long suspected of being her murderer; Harvey Glatman, infamously nicknamed the “Glamour Girl Slayer” for his harrowing methods of killing aspiring young models in the late 1950’s, as well as Judy Ann Dull, his first victim; Susan Atkins, one of the most prominent members of the Manson Family (although Charles will not appear, his ominous presence will be noticeable throughout the event); and Richard Ramirez, also known as the “Night Stalker,” who terrorized suburban Los Angeles for years.
The menu will be created by chef Leslie Pollock of Sublime Cuisine. Each course will be based off of a different figure and different era, with thematically appropriate cocktails paired to each dish. In between courses, guests will experience dark, thematic performance art that will help guide the the story.
To Live and Di(n)e in LA will take place at a private location to be revealed the day prior to the show, on Thursday, November 30, 2017. The event begins with a cocktail hour at 7:00pm. Tickets are $185.00 and include the four-course meal, cocktails, unlimited wine and beer, and performances. Only 40 tickets are available. This event is strictly 21+.
