Things to do for September 08, 2011

The Weekender

Michael Bay’s House, Rooftop Mojitos and Faux Cheesesteak

The weekend is more comfortable thinking in terms of Celsius.

Thursday
Next Door by Josie: Now Open
WHAT’S NEXT

Next Door by Josie: Now Open

You’ve liked Josie restaurant well enough over the years, but frankly it’s had a distinct lack of Beer & Bacon Caramel Corn. Here to correct that glaring oversight: the casual next-door restaurant called... Next Door. They also offer a rib eye and Blood Orange Manhattans. Now they’re just showing off.

BAY WINDOWS

Michael Bay’s House Is on the Market

If you’re looking for a Santa Barbara crash pad, Michael Bay just put his four-bedroom showstopper of a house on the market. It’s got a three-car garage, an infinity pool and walls that look like suede. Which will be great until, for no reason, it explodes.

Your New Rooftop Cabanas
CABANA CLUB

Your New Rooftop Cabanas

If you’ve ever had dinner up at the Peninsula’s Roof Garden, you know how nice the view is. The view of those cabanas by the pool, that is. And now you don’t have to be a hotel guest to book one for some after-work pomegranate mojitos in the sun.

Saturday
Tequila and Tailoring at a Bike Shop
SHIFTING GEARS

Tequila and Tailoring at a Bike Shop

Levi’s is launching a pop-up bike shop on Saturday. At the kickoff party, you can bring in your bike for repairs, and some tailors will be around to adjust your new biker-friendly pants. Oh, and there’s also an open tequila bar—so you might want to bring a tandem bike and a designated cyclist.

Monday
A Chicken Pot Pie, sans Chicken
THE SUBSTITUTE

A Chicken Pot Pie, sans Chicken

When the sun’s still shining like this, you have to maintain your summer body—so stop by M Café for a chicken pot pie or a Philly cheesesteak. This being M Café (no meat, no eggs, no dairy...), neither chicken nor cheesesteak is involved here. Your abs will thank you.
