Wherever you are in LA, you’re likely stuck there for a while. And even more likely: you’re thirsty... Allow us to introduce the You Call It Whiskey Tasting Flight, quenching thirsts now—with your choice of three top-shelf whiskeys—at the Thirsty Crow in Silver Lake or Bigfoot West in Culver City.
Things to do for November 04, 2010
Plaid Shirts, Ice Skates and a Six-Hour Happy Hour
You break the weekend, you buy it.
Six Hours of Happy Hour at Mäni’s
You’ve always thought at least a quarter of the day’s 24 hours should be allotted to happy hour. For six hours every weekday, Mäni’s on Maple now has $6 Padre’s Margaritas (they use cinnamon instead of salt) and $6 beef skewers with warm pita. You’ll want to pace yourself.
’Tis the season... for mid-90s temps. But just because you’re still in shorts doesn’t mean you can’t conjure a winter state of mind with some ice skates. An outdoor Santa Monica rink opens Friday a few blocks from the beach. Just another blustery winter in LA...
Live Jazz in Westwood (Really)
Step into the Glendon on a Saturday night for some Coffee Crusted Seared Ahi with a $5 martini, and it’ll now come with a live jazz band. (Yes, you’re still in Westwood.) Expect some classics as well as some soothing reinterpretations of that great jazz legend Lady Gaga.
A Three-and-a-Half-Hour Feast
Instead of your usual hangover brunch at Loteria Grill on Sunday, head to CBS Studio Center for a couple dozen brunches in one. There’s an epic tasting called Great Chefs of LA going on, with hair-of-the-dog wine, whiskey and beer to wash down food from Drago Centro, La Grande Orange and... Loteria Grill.
