We’re getting you a couple one-of-a-kind shoes from the venerable Maine-based cobbling outfit, Rancourt & Co. Then we’re airmailing you three Bacon Explosions (enough said). Finally, we’re stocking your cellar for 53% off, and making your mimosas bottomless in Beverly Hills. Get busy.
Things to do for September 22, 2011
Poolside Scrabble, Fred Segal and Desert Cigars
One of the weekend’s Emmys has gone missing.
Gobi’s All-Day Happy Hour
Whatever you’re doing right now is probably lacking in Mongolian barbecue. (We said probably.) To remedy the situation, head to Gobi’s new all-day happy hour, now going down every Thursday, where you’ll wash down your stir-fried meats with $3 beers and $4 wines. (The drinks: not stir-fried.)
Cigars and a Shave in the Desert
Desert temperatures have recently dipped below the 400-degree mark. You’re thinking road trip, and you wouldn’t say no to a hot shave and a couple cigars upon arrival. In an unrelated matter: the old-timey Havana Club barbershop and cigar lounge just opened out in La Quinta.
The Fred Segal Sale Returns
Cancel your Friday lunch plans—tomorrow’s the kickoff of the biannual Fred Segal sale, when you’ll be looking at racks and racks of Paul Smith shirts and Rag & Bone pants marked at half off. But if you still need lunch, their Umami’s right there.
Board Games and Punch Bowls, Poolside
Sunday night: the end of the weekend. Or the beginning of an alfresco beer garden situation, with sausages and pretzels, gin and raspberries in punch bowls—and board games by the Viceroy pool. The menu will change each week, but your Scrabble dominance should stay pretty consistent.
Piles of Wings at Delphine
When you’ve got a craving for wings and beer, you could go to a sports bar... or a Mediterranean brasserie. Delphine’s new wing night means upscale takes like Truffle Cheese wings, Honey Sriracha wings and BBQ Beer with Green Chili wings. You never drink beer without honey sriracha.
