Wilshire is offering you the position of Maitre D’ for one Wednesday night through a sweepstakes with DineLA. No, you’re not going to be yelled at in public or have to don a hairnet. You will be treated as if you were boarding school buddies with the owners’ son and receive the best in preferential treatment. First comes a training from the GM before touring Chef Andrew Kirschner’s kitchen and munching on the night’s specials. Ensuring success in the job, they’ll get you buzzed with a wine tasting before being sent out to gab with the guests. After your labor, invite a friend for a multi-course meal, with a bottle of wine attached. You cannot accept tips and have until September 3rd to get your name in the hat at DineLA’s website, which is perpetually adding participating restaurants to its celebration in October.
