The Little Wine Bar That Could: Bin 8945

From S. Irene Virbila in the LA Times, July 27, 2006

In West Hollywood, BIN 8945 Wine Bar and Bistro, which may be the most serious of the bunch, has opened near the corner of Santa Monica and Robertson boulevards. Think of it as the little wine bar that could..

Chez Pims’ commenters think a bunch of nonsense about copyright law.

We think that a cliche is a good friend in a tight corner, and that no one reads blogs, anyway.
