Oil and vinegar may not mix together, but they have created several successful mixes during their respective solo projects as DJ Olive and MC Balsamic. Reconcile discordant dressings with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet oils, vinegars, vessels, and spirits at Vom Fass's Westlake Village location.
Vom Fass abounds with casks and decorative bottles of imported and gourmet olive oils, vinegars, and liqueurs. After a sampling of liquid delicacies, decant a balsamic vinegar or nut oil into a complimentary 100-milliliter Marasca bottle (a $2.99 value). Vom Fass's extra-virgin olive oils include the organic Sicilian Madonia, a full-bodied tonic with hints of pear and clover ($5.99/100 mL), and infused oils incorporate farflung flavors such as chili, lemon, ginger, and compassion ($3.49+/100 mL). Cask hoppers can bring their own vessel to fill, or purchase any of the more than 40 varieties of bottles available at the store ($1.50–$10). The Vom Fass oil mavens create custom labels for each bottle after they're filled, listing ingredients or the lyrics to Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle."
