The Weekender

Wolf Heads, Bacon Patties and Pie on a Stick

The weekend will Sundance like no one’s watching.

Thursday
Burgers Made of Lamb, Duck and Bacon
LUCKY 13

Burgers Made of Lamb, Duck and Bacon

If you haven’t been to the gritty Cahuenga gastropub known as District 13 in a while, you’ve got seven new reasons to go—and they’re all burgers. One’s made of lamb, one’s duck... but the showstopper is the 50/50, whose patty is half beef, half bacon. Your kind of odds.

Wolfslair Biergarten Is Now Open
LAIR APPARENT

Wolfslair Biergarten Is Now Open

In the cavernous former home of Café Was, you’ll now find noticeably more... wolf heads. And bratwurst. And pretzels. And a bunch of people drinking German beer out of metal mugs. But really, the first thing you’ll notice is the wolf heads.

The Food at Cliff’s Edge: Upgraded
CLIFF’S NOTES

The Food at Cliff’s Edge: Upgraded

The hidden patio at Cliff’s Edge has always been a reliable spot for your Eastside dinner dates. Except for maybe the dinner part. Enter new chef Benjamin Bailly, a James Beard nominee from Fraîche, who’s dishing black mussels in apple cider, eggplant caviar and pork belly. He had you at black mussels.

Friday
Eating Peking Duck. As Ice Cream.
THAT’S COOL

Eating Peking Duck. As Ice Cream.

Now that Coolhaus has an actual shop for their famous ice cream, not just a truck... they’ve got room to get weird. Like, meat-flavored-ice-cream weird. Their new flavors include Peking duck, Manhattan, mint julep, and fried chicken and waffle. Yes, we’re still talking about ice cream.

Available now, Coolhaus, 8588 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-424-5559

Saturday
Pie on a Stick, at Your Door
PIE GAME

Pie on a Stick, at Your Door

So, pie. There’s a crust and there’s something inside the crust. It’s perfect—no need to change it. Unless somebody decides to start putting pie on a stick, sort of like pie lollipops. And then deliver them to your door. All right then. Pie lollipops.
