Things to do for December 15, 2011
Monster Burgers, New Pants and a Hidden Wine Bar
The weekend’s red-band trailer is going viral.
A New Confederacy Outpost
Next time you need a trench or some slim black jeans from Confederacy, but Los Feliz is just too far, hit the new, more central outpost by the Grove. You enter through a women’s store called Satine, but you’re in the right place. Just follow the smell of trench coats.
The “Bah, Humbug” Double Feature
Halfway through December, you could use a brief getaway from all this unabashed holiday cheer—all you ask for is a little healthy cynicism for a few hours. That’ll be two tickets to the Scrooged/Bad Santa double feature, please.
Ugly-Sweater Partying at the Crow
Your aunt needs at least one photo of you wearing that sweater she got you last year. So send it from this year’s Thirsty Crow bash. As per ugly-sweater-party protocol, they’ll be giving a prize to the worst knit-wearer. Bonus: they’ll also have Apple Pie Manhattans.
Monster Burger-ing at Savory
If you’re craving a burger on Monday, hit an In-N-Out. Or better yet, head to Malibu for a half-pound Wolfmother at Savory’s new burger night. In case of a true emergency, there’s the Four Horsemen: two six-ounce patties of rib eye, cheese, pork belly and bacon. Hold the fries.
A French Hideaway in a Strip Mall
The element of surprise is crucial to any good date. So park at a random Franklin strip mall and lead your date into the Mignon owner’s hidden new French wine bar. They’ve only got two apps and two mains on any given night, but the wine list is... more extensive. Surprise.
