Things to do for July 22, 2010
Dominick’s Brunch, Endless Golf and Happy Hours
The weekend will get the next round.
If you haven’t yet stepped into Caña, Cedd Moses’ sorta-members-only den of rum, tomorrow’s your chance—just RSVP to ERA, the roving ’20s-themed party touching down here tomorrow. Oh, and you’ll want to corral all your flapper girls early for the open bar from 9 to 10pm.
Dominick’s Launches Brunch
After years as a dinner-and-martini institution for agents, actors and producer-types, Dominick’s is doing something unprecedented: starting this weekend, the doors open at 9am for brunch. Expect Polenta Waffles, Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes and plenty of chatter about Salt’s opening numbers.
You don’t need a whole lot of help finding reasons to haul out your golf clubs. But if you spring for a $450 Shangri-La room, Ojai Valley Inn will make it worth your while with unlimited golf on the championship course, a 50-minute massage and breakfast on the house. That’s about $500 worth of incentive, so basically they’re paying you to golf.
All You Can Drink at Bastide
Now this is a happy hour you don’t see every day—Monday at 5pm, drop by Melrose Place’s elegant haven of dinner tables and Assouline books, throw $15 their way and you’ll eat and drink freely for the next two hours. They’ll have three wines, soju martinis and a special cocktail to try, as well as tray-passed bites like Yellowtail Tartare.
