We had the chance to visit Plan Check’s Wilshire Boulevard location this week for a preview of their #MadeinLA Summer cocktail series featuring local distillers Our/Los Angeles vodka, Future Gin, and Mulholland Whiskey.
The series also kicks off with a party this Friday, June 28th from 6pm – 9pm at the Plan Check in Santa Monica!
