Happy hour. You’re a fan, though you prefer the “happy” part to the “hour” part. Which is why we’re taking you to Comme Ça, where you can order from the happy hour Hourglass Menu anytime after 5pm, while sipping a couple off-menu cocktails. Ah, to happy hour like the French.
Things to do for November 18, 2010
Fried Oysters, 2,000 Slots and Your New Shirt
The weekend is finally available on iTunes.
Vince Clothes at 90% Off
If your winter wardrobe is a bit short on cashmere sweaters appropriate for the rugby field or the pub, head to the Vince sample sale, pretty much right now, for just such sweaters, plus leather jackets and polos―all discounted by up to 90%. The polos will work at the pub too.
District Debuts an Oyster Bar
Behind all that mahogany and concrete in District, there’s a new chef in the kitchen―and he brought an oyster bar. You’ll have at least three oyster choices daily (Kumamotos from Washington, Kusshi from BC), plus specials like Fried Oyster Sandwiches. And they still have the bar-bar.
Valley View Casino Opens
If the glitz and glitter of your holiday party circuit has already started to feel overwhelming, time for the opposite of all that―a quick getaway to a totally-off-the-grid new casino near San Diego. They’ve got 2,000 slots and 25 gaming tables, so that’s 2,025 ways to forget about reindeer sweaters.
Bottomless Bubbly and Japanese Maids
A leisurely brunch fueled by bottomless champagne that’s poured by giggling women dressed up as Japanese maids―it’s an idea whose time has come. And not just in Japan. Add $12 to your eggs Benedict order and the bubbly keeps flowing.
$2 Tacos, $2 Beers in Santa Monica
For some reason, the words taco and Tuesday have always gone together like Sonny and Cher. And when you’re talking $2 Tecates and $2 skirt steak tacos all night long at La Sandia’s bar―well, they go together like... Christina and Cher in a burlesque movie.
