Things to do for July 15, 2010
Lingerie Sales, Day Drinking and a Dodger Flea Market
The weekend is getting warmer.
Waterloo & City’s Proper Happy Hour
Every day starting now, 5pm is a good time to get to Waterloo & City—that’s when their very English happy hour starts. To go with your $6 Pom Collins (gin, lime, pomegranate), they offer Duck Pâté and Chicken Liver & Foie Gras Mousse. A slight step up from bar nuts.
One Weekend, Two Sexy Sales
You’ve got two ways to bring this week’s heat wave into the bedroom (or wherever you want to bring it). And the good news is, both ways involve lingerie. It’s up to 50% off at Coco de Mer, and up to 70% off at Kiki de Montparnasse. Who wears what is up to you.
The Cat & Fiddle Opens for Breakfast
You’ve spent a few late Hollywood nights in this courtyard with a beer in your hand. Now picture that, but in the morning. For the first time, the Cat & Fiddle is opening for breakfast—so you’ll soon be working your way through a boozy mix of Lemon Crepes, Huevos Rancheros and $5 Irish Coffees. Breakfast of champions...
Ivan Kane’s Café Was Gets Grilling
You’re always on the lookout for prime spots for barbecue-feasting and day-drinking, so keep Café Was in mind this weekend. The chef is hauling the grill out to the patio for heaping $19 plates of baby back ribs, brisket, corn and potato salad. Another $15 gets you bottomless Bloody Marys, screwdrivers or champagne. Feel free to enjoy them topless.
The Rose Bowl is no longer the only monolithic flea market at a major local sports venue—starting Sunday you can head to the Dodger Stadium parking lot for more than 500 vendors hawking vintage furniture, clothes and undiscovered gems. There’s also a charity auction where you can bid on Jerry Bruckheimer’s Louis Vuitton backpack. Don’t worry, it won’t explode.
