You’re overdue for a sunset yoga session... atop a helipad. (Seriously.) It’s happening at the InterContinental Los Angeles—exclusively for Perks members—and we’re throwing in after-hours access to their spa. We’re also spiking your next PB&J with some bourbon (or tequila, or champagne) courtesy of the Jam Stand. Enjoy responsibly.
Things to do for August 18, 2011
Pee-wee Herman, Alfresco Sushi and DIY Bartending
The weekend is rumored to be fall’s breakout hit.
Pee-wee’s Big LACMA Adventure
If you’re in the mood for an obscure little art film with a sophisticated date tomorrow, you should head to LACMA. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure is playing at the outdoor amphitheater for free, and picnicking is encouraged. Tell ’em Large Marge sent you.
Tirovino’s New Bottomless Brunch
If your Friday night date at Tirovino goes well enough that you wake up together—and starving—Saturday morning, just go back to Tirovino. Their new brunch means truffle scrambles and a $13 bottomless champagne bar, where you can add strawberry juice, white peach puree and OJ to your bubbly. Or more bubbly.
A Sushi-Filled Beer Garden
You could have your sushi in a strip mall this weekend. Or you could have it in a pop-up beer garden filling the lush grounds behind Colorado Boulevard with live music, sushi, Japanese beer and, for dessert, a chocolate volcano. Advantage: pop-up beer garden.
Half-Off Wine at STK
Sunday evening: your weekend’s over. Although... you could use a little more wine. And maybe a few friends. Gather your clan on the patio at STK: every Sunday, you’ll now get any glass—or bottle—at half off. And their list is 108 wines deep. Yes, that’s potentially 54 free wines.
One-Pot Suppers at Osteria La Buca
And for Monday, picture this: you. At a table for four. At Osteria La Buca. For dinner: a single pot on your table to fill you all with Bollito Misto (roughly translated, that means: a lot of Italian meat). There’s also gelato for dessert, but that’s not in the pot.
