While SAG-AFTRA and the WGA continue to strike on the picket line, Los Angeles restaurants and bars are supporting with discounts for card-holding members! Whether you spent the morning in the sun and want to fuel yourself with a delicious meal like a sushi lunch, or maybe reflect on this time with some fellow actors over a cocktail or two. You might want to blow off some strike steam and throw something, or maybe you just need to escape Los Angeles for the night. This list is for you!
Personally, I have been a member of Sag-Aftra for 25 years. My parents have been doing this even longer. I’ve dedicated my life to this passion of being a working actor, collecting more side hustle jobs than I can count. I’m hopeful this strike ends with better job security for our future. I’m so grateful that this food blog has been a creative outlet to entertain and tell stories through the lens of food as acting work is not always consistent. Thank you to these participating businesses for being the relief we need during this time!
*You will need to present your SAG-AFTRA or WGA card for all of these offers!
