Swingers in Hollywood? Well, yes, I’m sure there are actual swingers in Hollywood, but there’s also this dive diner on Beverly and Laurel.
Last night my boss and I ate at Swingers while talking business. It’s got a great vibe, I would describe as hipster meets vintage rock. The crowd here is something else, and I love to people watch. I should probably linger here alone sometime and try to get a few more People Profiles.
We each ordered side salads, then split the vegan burrito, which you must try, even if you’re a meat eater. It’s packed with spinach, black beans, and these delicious grains that I can’t for the life of me remember right now. I’ve been cutting back on meat lately (in more ways than one, ha ha) so I might have to recreate this meal in my kitchen. Because you know how I get down in the kitchen.
I wouldn’t normally order cupcakes for dessert, especially with bikini season in full swing, but when Lisa suggested trying them, I couldn’t say no. And how could I? They’re big, moist and loaded with frosting. Sometimes a girl’s gotta splurge, right?
If you’re in Hollywood and looking for a laid back diner with delish dishes, do not pass up Swingers. They’re open every day from 6:30 AM to 4 AM. Look for the very American peace signs on the window!
