It’s a foregone conclusion: sometime this summer, you’ll require a night of Russian feasting, with plenty of vodka and a 28-degree tasting room. Naturally, we have you covered. Plus, we’re hooking you up with gratis tickets to an advance screening of The Devil’s Double and 70% off a two-month Crunch membership.
Things to do for July 21, 2011
Rugged Lingerie, Marina Oysters and a Truck Stop
The weekend just pranked Clooney.
Oysters and Bubbly at Cafe del Rey
Cafe del Rey turns 20 this year. Which means two things for you: 1) Now through next Wednesday, they’ll bring you a half-dozen oysters and a glass of champagne for $20. 2) Every Friday through September, pitchers of White Peach Sangria are $20 all day. Please, no gifts.
If Armor Were More Like Lingerie...
At week’s end there are many reasons to raise a glass, but the most compelling is probably a champagne-soaked party at a lingerie store. Models will show off the new Eleven Collection by Armor, which involves lingerie... that could be worn by gladiators. You’ll just have to see for yourself.
Stella Rossa’s Late-Night Happy Hour
Two very beautiful words in the English language: midnight pizza. Possibly more beautiful: come by Stella Rossa for a housemade organic Italian sausage pizza, and you’ll pair it with a $3 bottle of beer, $4 pint or $5 glass of wine. We stopped counting how many words that is.
Miranda July’s New Art Thing
On Saturday, actress/writer/director/professional eccentric Miranda July has a new installation called Eleven Heavy Things outside the Pacific Design Center, and climbing on the pieces—one’s a podium marked “The Guilty One”—is encouraged. Climbing on other pieces in the PDC: still discouraged.
Introducing the Truck Stop
On the bustling corner of La Brea and Beverly, the Truck Stop has launched Wednesday nights, with plans to go seven days a week. It’s not a diner; it’s a lot with seven food trucks—including the Knockout Taco Truck and the Grilled Cheese Truck. No word on a waitress named Flo.
