(Radio.com) Clothing lines, magazines, filmmakers--there hasn't been much that the Beastie Boys haven't done and done well over the years. Now, Mike D (AKA Mike Diamond) is set to take on something entirely different for his new job as a wine sommelier.

Diamond, an "avid wine collector," will be selecting the wine list for new L.A. restaurant, Hearth & Hound. 'It's going to be a fun list," Diamond told Bloomberg about the venture. 'We are putting together a wine program that will get customers tasting things they might not taste. If you like California Syrah, I might point you towards a wine from another part of the world that's better value. We're going to pour half-bottles, so you can try different things."

The new restaurant, which is scheduled to open in the space that used to house popular Hollywood spot Cat & Fiddle on September 22, has another major music connection via owner Ken Friedman, a former band manager and A&R exec. Read more here.
