Sage Bistro and Oyster Bar Hosts LaBORatory Nights Monday

Who says your weekend needs to end on Sundays? On Monday, LaBORatory Nights will bring their monthly tradition to Sage Bistro and Oyster Bar in Hollywood for an evening of wine and conversation.

LaBORatory Nights is an 18-year-old tradition started in Miami, meant to bring together both cultivated and aspiring wine connoisseurs. One Monday each month, old members and new guests bring a bottle of wine -- covered in a brown paper bag in order to save face -- and meet  under one condition: discussions about politics, religion, or sports are forbidden.

Sage Bistro and Oyster Bar, 2000 Harrison St. in Hollywood, will host this month's event. For $30.24, patrons can enjoy a fixed menu in a private room at this French-American bistro owned by Chef Laurent Tasic.

The all-inclusive price covers a three-course meal, with enticing entrées like coq au vin; Chef Laurent's meat loaf, made of ground veal and mushrooms covered in Merlot sauce; or pistachio-encrusted tilapia -- ooh la la! 

The event begins at 7:30 p.m., so if you know that your Mondays lack a certain je ne sais quoi, RSVP as soon as possible to LaBORatory at [email protected]. Include your name and phone number within the email.
