We’re sending you on a little jaunt to Brazil (via Hollywood’s swanky Caña Rum Bar) for a night of cocktails and samba, plus a year’s worth of gratis rum tastings. We’re also hooking you up with 25% off a collection of stunning Swiss chronographs from Skywatch.
Things to do for June 30, 2011
Fireworks, Sushi Nachos and a Parking Lot Party
The weekend’s fuse is burning...
Parking Spots Becoming Art Galleries
Traffic might be going to your head, but lately you’ve been seeing parking lots as art. The folks at LA><ART agree: tonight’s dance party in the gallery’s lot kicks off a year of pop-up art installations in parking spots throughout the city, from random driveways to public lots.
Cube’s New Fried Chicken Box
Next time you’re heading to Cinespia or the Hollywood Bowl, call Cube. Their new Fried Chicken Picnic Box for Two comes with sides, a tomato-peach-mozzarella salad and strawberry shortcake. And yes, they’ll happily throw in a bottle of wine that pairs well with fried things in cemeteries.
Day-Drinking with Surfers
And if you’re on La Brea this Friday to pick up your basket, kick off the weekend by day-drinking with surfers. Inside the nautical-sweater den Feal Mor, the walls will be adorned with surf photography, and your hands will be adorned with gratis taquitos, Mexican beer and vodka-spiked aguas frescas.
Rooftop Fireworks in Venice Beach
Grilling season begins Monday at Hotel Erwin’s rooftop bar. Come early for all-you-can-eat Pulled Pork Sliders and Sushi Nachos (think ahi tuna with rice chips) from their new grill menu. Or come late for... the same thing, plus fireworks. Your call.
More Fireworks at Suite 700
But if you prefer to catch your fireworks from chairs covered in suit fabric, consider the party at Suite 700. The Hotel Shangri-La’s covert rooftop bar by the ocean has solid views, and the $50 admission includes two cocktails and a plate of sliders. Rockets’ red glare: on the house.
