Today, we’re getting you 40% off a luxuriously surreal dinner party at supperclub, with gratis champagne and a four-course dinner on a gigantic bed. Plus, we’re bringing you a flight of three off-menu cocktails at Villains Tavern. Finally, we’d like to send you the new Swimsuit Issue—for a buck.
Things to do for February 18, 2011
Bluegrass, Poolside Mussels and Happy Gilmore
The weekend is your All-Star MVP.
Poolside Happy Hour at Whist
Say it’s the end of a long day... for the record, 4pm is close enough. Wrap it up poolside at Whist—their new happy hour has $7 plates of mussels, meatballs and chicken wings, along with $7 wines and spiked punch. Your office just ran out of spiked punch.
In an unnamed, long-dormant Venice speakeasy where Charlie Chaplin, the Doors and Jane’s Addiction have all taken stage (sadly, not together), you’ll find a new monthly music showcase starting tonight. Expect jazz, soul, R&B and hushed voices.
With the Oscars at hand, you’ve been entrenched in profoundly arty cinema—so it’s perfect timing to cool off with an outdoor drink-along double feature of Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore. Beer pong is involved, and the first drink is on the house.
Red Carpet Cocktails at the London Bar
And speaking of the Oscars, this year they’ve given you lots of reasons to celebrate. Namely: $5 cocktails at the London. Try the Red Carpet Cooler (vodka, pomegranate and lime) or the New Fashion (gin, Aperol, lime and cucumber). Cucumber’s a shoo-in for Best Supporting Vegetable.
Bluegrass and Bourbon at South
With all the mason jar juleps and fried food, you might’ve thought the Wilshire bar called South couldn’t get any more Southern. Well, think again. They’ve brought in a bluegrass band on Tuesday nights, with weekly changing bourbon flights. You probably won’t see Rascal Flatts, but you’re okay with that.
