Introducing the Doyer Dog

So Dodger season kicks off today and your Dodger Dog could use an upgrade. Introducing the Doyer Dog, a spicier take that’s topped with chilies, nacho cheese, onions and jalapeños. Don’t worry, the classic version is still available, too—so consider this the relief pitcher of hot dogs.

The Doyer Dog, $8, now available at Camacho’s stands throughout Dodger Stadium

50-Cent Martinis at the Beverly Wilshire
MIDNIGHT MARTINIS

50-Cent Martinis at the Beverly Wilshire

To celebrate 50 years of Beverly Hills residency, the Beverly Wilshire would like to pour you a 50-cent martini inside The Blvd restaurant—but only for 19 minutes and 61 seconds each night starting at midnight. It’s perfect for your nightcap with 50 Cent.

Friday
Free Pie. Yes, Free Pie.
JUST DESSERTS

Free Pie. Yes, Free Pie.

Finally, your favorite sandwich-and-pie stop is launching dinner service. For the whole month of April, you’ll follow your Steak and Lager Pot Pie with a gratis individual pie for dessert. (Depends on the day, but could be apple, Orange Creamsicle or Salted Caramel.) Nothing goes with pie like pie.

Apr 1-30, 6-9pm (until 10pm Fri-Sat), simplethings, 8310 W 3rd St, 323-592-3390

Oak Fire Pizza 2.0 Is Here

Next time you find yourself in Sherman Oaks, you’ll probably need pizza and beer. Good news: there’s now a second location of La Cienega’s pub-style pizza joint Oak Fire, and this one has Smoked Brisket Enchiladas. As for why you’re in Sherman Oaks—we’re not here to ask questions.

Soft-open Apr 1-2, fully open Apr 4, Oak Fire Pizza, 13359 Ventura Blvd, 818-205-9306

Bottomless Brunching over Santa Monica

First step: head to this Santa Monica rooftop. You’ll get your table at Zengo for two hours, and you’ll have bottomless Bacon Bloody Marys and endless small plates of Banh Mi Sliders and Peking Duck Hash until the clock runs out. Consider this your starting pistol.
