Things to do for July 07, 2011
Royal Polo, Lebowski Cabaret and an English Pub
The weekend abides.
A New Den of Deep-Tissue Massage
Deep within the new BLVD Hotel in Studio City, you’ll now find the final and most important component—the one that gives you massages. It’s the kind of place that also offers the finishing touches you don’t usually like to talk about in polite company: sea salt exfoliation.
The Blue Boar Is Now Open
Barhopping on Cahuenga always makes you feel like you’re in the English countryside, so it’s about time a proper English pub sprung up. The Blue Boar’s your new home for bangers and mash, and Cranky Butlers (vodka, lemon, grape and basil) over a round of darts. Though your personal vodka butler is rarely cranky.
A Very Coen Cabaret
Last time you watched The Big Lebowski, you couldn’t help but think it should really be a cabaret. Good news: starting tomorrow, you can drop into Show at Barre, order some martinis and hear Broadway stars tackling stirring numbers from Lebowski, O Brother and even that song and dance classic, Fargo.
Polo with William and Kate
You may have heard about a certain new royal couple passing through our area this weekend—naturally, polo factors in. After a spot of lunch created by Giada De Laurentiis, you’ll watch Prince William and Co. take to the field in the name of charity. And in the name of playing polo.
Samosas and Mimosas at Bombay Palace
Over the years, you’ve had many an Indian feast at Bombay Palace in Beverly Hills—but it’s not exactly on your party-brunch circuit. Until this weekend. Sort of astonishingly, a single Andrew Jackson now gets you access to a huge spread of tandoori chicken, tikka masala, samosas... and bottomless champagne. Think Bombay, 90210.
