This week, we’ve talked the trainers of Mark Sanchez and Von Miller into training you for 50% off. Plus, we’re airmailing fresh Maine lobster pizza to your doorstep. And we’d like to keep you warm on a breezy beach night... by wrapping you in cashmere, for 40% off.
Things to do for May 19, 2011
LA's Next Great Burger, Models and a Wiltern Bar
The weekend is full of surprises.
Walter Manzke’s New Secret Burger
You always stay at the forefront of important burger developments. So you’ll want to stop into Le Saint Amour, where Walter Manzke (late of Church & State) has quietly introduced The Manzke Burger, a dry-aged behemoth with gruyère, caramelized onions and some “secret ingredients.” (We think it’s hamburger buns.)
A Funky K-Town Beer Bar Debuts
Next time you’re catching a show at the Wiltern, you’ve finally got a good place nearby to grab a beer first. Beer Belly debuts tomorrow with a dozen craft brews, Grindhaus brats and some really crazy striped walls.
Wine, Cheese and Ice Cream
At the Market, Santa Monica Place’s new collection of 14 gourmet purveyors, you’ve got a few favorites: 1) the Venokado wine shop; 2) the Cookie Guru; and 3) Beachy Cream, where retro pinup girls want to give you Strawberry Surfer Girl ice cream sandwiches. Tip: let them.
A New Exhibit About Models
If you think your weekend could use a few classic supermodels in their primes, check out that sleek little photography den behind CAA. The new exhibit Beauty CULTure examines serious issues about female beauty via hundreds of shots of Crawford, Klum, et al. You’re something of a scholar in this area.
Two Wild Patio Parties in One
The insane dance parties known as Summer Sessions have returned to the patio at XIV. Only this year, it’s all gotten so big that they’ve brought in a double-decker bus to shuttle you to and from a second simultaneous party on the patio at MyHouse. And yes, they’re calling it... MyPatio.
