As restaurants and bars continue to reopen around the country, we’re excited to fill you in on a new benefit for our Friends of The Infatuation members - dining perks at some of our favorite restaurants in LA.
The Infatuation’s membership program involves year-long benefits like members-only events, exclusive content, recommendations, perks, and more, and you can join here.
Our newest perk is one that celebrates the LA restaurants we love and hopefully gives you another reason to eat out. We’ve partnered with spots like Mazal, Sunset Sushi, and more. Get all the details below, and if you haven’t already, sign up to become a Friend here.
Restaurant perks run for a limited time through 2021. Partners and offers are subject to change and there will be some new perks added throughout the summer. If you have questions about the perks or the Friends of The Infatuation program, email us at email@example.com.
