Things you should be doing poolside: drinking. And enjoying a four-course Italian feast. Perks is hooking you up with both at the palazzo-like Oliverio in the Avalon Hotel. Plus, we’ve curated some of teNeues Publishing’s most impressive works of supersized literature for 40% off. Oh, and two words: breakfast cookies.
Things to do for June 09, 2011
Huge Beers, Alfresco Lamb and Vincent Price
The weekend always speaks with certitude.
The Steven Alan Sample Sale Returns
With summer at hand, it’s time to stock up on the kinds of plaid shirts you throw on with shorts, roll up the sleeves and go. Head to a Hollywood warehouse right now, and you’ll find more plaid per square foot than any other place in the city—all more than half off.
Like Happy Hour, but for Dinner
You’re well-acquainted with the two halves of WP24—extravagant feasts in the dining room, cocktails and 24th-floor views in the lounge. Now there’s a mashup: the lounge is offering a three-course feast of rotating choices like Crispy “General Tso” Style Quail from the dining-room menu. Price: $24.
32-Ounce Beers at City Tavern
At the end of a long, hard week, you need beer. So in cases of extreme emergency, hit the happy hour at Culver City’s newest beer bar, where you can get any of the 22 brews on tap poured into a 32-ounce glass milk jug for $10. Repeat as necessary.
A 3D Vincent Price Evening
Everybody’s all high on 3D these days, but Vincent Price was doing this stuff back in ’53. To celebrate what would’ve been his 100th birthday, the Downtown Independent is screening House of Wax. A VIP ticket gets you beer and wine on the roof beforehand. Yes, the views are 3D.
Drago Centro Hosts a Barbecue
The courtyard outside Drago Centro will smell surprisingly porky come Sunday. Your usual spot for fancy Italian is changing it up for their version of a barbecue. Fifty bucks gets you endless plates of all the suckling pig, pork sausage and lamb you can eat. Also, lasagna.
