The date-price tie-in doesn't come around too often, so when it does, we take note. And we're taking note on 09-09-09 of a special thing going down at Vermont. The Los Feliz restaurant has a menu devoted just to 09-09-09, meaning you have to get there on September 9th to squeeze the last bit of nine-osity out of it.
On the one-day-only roster: manchego-stuffed risotto balls with a tomato vinaigrette, truffled deviled eggs, a nine-layer lemon cake. Oh, and drinks, like the Bitter Redhead and Velvet Mule. Every item on this special menu is $9.99 -- three nines in a row, but that is probably completely obvious -- and every item is only available at this special price for a single night.
But the piece de resistance, and the nine-iest part of the night: Camille Saviola will be performing at the restaurant at 9PM. We should note that the ticket price for the performance is $24.99, which has a couple of nines in it. Will Ms. Saviola, one of the stars of Broadway's "Nine," take on "Love Potion Number 9" or "99 Luftballoons" during her cabaret set? Best order your deviled eggs and shimmy into a seat.
