Got Time to Kill on a Sunday Near LAX This Summer?

Then you might be interested in heading on over to the Sheraton Gateway LAX Hotel. The hotel is kicking off JetSet Sundays on May 25, a weekly poolside event that will last through the summer.

The hotel's executive chef has put together an exotic sort of menu with Brazilian steak sandwiches and grilled eggplants with sesame and soy, so don't come looking for your standby faves of hot dogs and burgers. (There won't be any bocce bellas there, either.)

However, there will be a Good Humor truck serving ice cream bars and cones. And don't forget about the drinks. Since the hotel is located near the airport, drinks are airline-inspired...

Straight from the press release:

"JetSetters" can channel the skies with fitting cocktails such as the "Jet Blue," a blend of Absolute Citron, fresh lemonade and blue Curacao;  "747," an infusion of Stoli Citrus, Sprite, lime and pineapple juices;  and the "Red Eye," a combination of Bacardi O, Triple Sec, lime and cranberry juices. And to keep JetSetting guests returning, cocktails will be updated weekly.

Heh. Maybe they should create a sake bomb called Bankrupt Airline to keep current with the airline industry changes?

Although the hotel is branded a Sheraton, it's actually part the boutique hotel chain Kor Hotels which also has the Viceroy and Tides brands under its umbrella. The hotel even sports hip decor inside and none of that fugly Sheraton-style we're used to (except on the outside.) And if you wanna stay over night, rates are as low as $99.

The 411: The poolside party starts at 2 pm on Sundays beginning May 25. Entrance is free but food and cocktails start at $7. Self-parking is $6 and valet is $12. Just don't drink and drive!
