This week, we’ve booked you lessons with Hollywood’s go-to knife-throwing guy... just because. Plus, we’re hooking you up with up to 39% off Ledbury’s spring shirts, upping the ante for Easter by filling your basket with boozy candy... oh, and sending you caviar eggs for 30% off. Pace yourself.
Things to do for April 14, 2011
Whiskey Punch, Vintage Plaid and 82-Degree Jazz
The weekend shall inherit the earth.
Kings Row Gastropub Opens
Rare is the restaurant that wouldn’t be improved with more bourbon and red meat. And voilà: in the former home of Neomeze, you’ll now settle into a sunlit gastropub for evenings of Duck Sliders, Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Whiskey Punch. It’s fit for a... person who likes gastropubs.
Vintage Shirts at 70% Off
Now’s the time to drop by What Goes Around Comes Around for some vintage plaid and denim. Reason one: the shop’s moving to La Brea—so they’re cleaning house by cutting 70% off the prices. Reason two: well, you need some vintage plaid and denim.
Cocktails and Jazz at LACMA
If you haven’t been by Stark Bar, the modern new courtyard bar right behind that big pile of lampposts at LACMA, Friday’s a good day to visit. The forecast is 82 degrees, there’ll be a pair of surprise $6 drink specials from 4 to 6:30pm, and the museum’s summer jazz series kicks off at 6pm.
Sunday Suppers at Sotto
It’s your ongoing tradition—family dinner every Sunday, only not always with your actual family. Come by the bustling new Italian spot Sotto starting this weekend, and they’ll bring you a five-course feast for $30, with $7 punch specials and $15 bottles of red or white. And call your mother.
Half Off Spiked Milkshakes at GO Burger
So you’re getting a refund. Great. If you planned to blow it on spiked milkshakes, it’ll go far at GO Burger. In honor of tax day, booze is half off all day on Monday, and that includes ice cream creations like Grandma’s Treat, spiked with bourbon. Just like Grandma used to make.
