This week, we’re inviting you to an evening of boozy snow cones on a rooftop, followed by a three-course meal at Kerry Simon’s LA Market. Plus, we’re stocking your home cellar and gallery with a curated selection of top-notch vino and iconic photography from printers extraordinaire Sonic Editions.
Things to do for August 25, 2011
Beer Swapping, Carroll Shelby and Giant Ravioli
The weekend isn’t impressed by a measly 5.8.
Lunch Debuts at Lukshon
Just when your usual power-lunch routine was starting to feel... routine, the gleaming Asian mecca Lukshon enters the fray. Their doors are now open for noon getaways of Pork Belly Lettuce Cups and, in an Asian/Yiddish alliance, Shanghai Matzo Ball Soup. Watch your back, Canter’s.
Dressing Like a Race Car Driver
Every once in a while, you find yourself on a totally empty freeway. Days like those, you could use a beat-up canvas driving jacket. Enter the new Carroll Shelby collection, gear inspired by what the racing legend wore back in the ’60s. Known as the golden age of men named Carroll.
Radical Italian in Beverly Hills
You aren’t exactly lacking for Italian dinner spots in Beverly Hills, but they’re generally pretty... conservative. Not Sfixio, a new art gallery-ish space slinging modern food like zucchini flan, giant ravioli and jumbo dates with chef’s cream. We hear they have regular-sized food, too.
Trading Bad Beer for Good Beer
You don’t know how it got there, but there’s a can of terrible beer rolling around in the back of your fridge. Take it to Beer Belly on Sunday night, hand it over with a penny, and they’ll pour you one of their craft beers. No, this doesn’t work with kegs.
Absinthe Nights at a Whiskey Bar
You’ve never been one to feel too bound by tradition. So if your favorite Silver Lake whiskey bar decides to start slinging $5 absinthe cocktails every Tuesday (with a different special each week), you’re not going to stand in the way. You’re absinthe-tolerant like that.
