To Live and Di(n)e in LA
To Live and Di(n)e in LA is a bi-monthly, intimate, 40-person supper club, where guests 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-style performances.
In To Live and Di(n)e in LA, guests 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, and Charles Manson himself; and, finally, Richard Ramirez, also known as the "Night Stalker," who terrorized suburban Los Angeles for years.
Each showing of To Live and Di(n)e in LA features a different chef and a different menu. Past chefs, including KTCHNLA executive chef Felix Barron IV and Sublime Cuisine proprietor Leslie Pollock, have delicately crafted menus that interpret the true crime cases in different ways. Each course in the four-course dining experience is based on each of the different figures in the show, with thematically appropriate cocktail pairings featuring some of the best in local craft liquor. In addition, there is free-flowing table wine and locally brewed beer available throughout the evening.
In between courses, guests experience dark, curated performance art that helps guide the story.
To Live and Di(n)e in LA takes place on a bi-monthly basis, in clandestine locations throughout Los Angeles. Tickets, which range in price between $165 and $185, are released several weeks before each performance and sell out quickly.
