Things to do for October 20, 2011
Whisky at Spitz, Scary Clowns and a New Indian Place
Could you pass the weekend?
Finally, Spitz Gets Some Whisky
You’re well acquainted with the delicious döner kebabs at Spitz, but something’s always been missing: a Spitz Manhattan. Good news: there’s now a full-bar situation happening at the Little Tokyo outpost. For round two, try the Aged and Confused—it’s bourbon, Campari and tequila. Also known as the kebab trifecta.
Adrian Grenier’s Pop-Up Shop
Now that Entourage has finally gone to that big red carpet in the sky, Adrian Grenier has more time to save the world. Head to La Brea tomorrow and you’ll find a pop-up version of his eco-minded website, SHFT—think commuter bikes, hand-cranked radios and art. No word on oil paintings of Turtle.
Sinister Clowns in an Old Zoo
You finally caught that trailer for Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, and it’s really missing something—some terrifying clowns. Yes, it’s time again to take a hayride through the old zoo in Griffith Park, where clowns and creepy little kids will do their best to scare you. BYO ScarJo.
Martinis, Magic and a Bounce House
Something crazy is happening in the Hollywood & Highland complex. (By which we mean even crazier than usual.) Hollywood Magic Bar opens Sunday, and inside you’ll find martinis, a DJ, magicians, fortune-tellers... and a bounce house for grown-ups. No, you can’t take your martini inside.
Naya Opens in Silver Lake
If you’ve been missing the coconut prawns at Silver Lake’s old Indian go-to Tantra, don’t worry: they’re still served at the new incarnation, Naya. But Mohawk Bend designer Kris Keith has thrown in white booths, white curtains... and soon enough, fireplaces on the patio. Eventually you may need those. Eventually.
