This week, we’re doubling your money for rare photography starring the likes of Dylan, Madonna and Kanye. Then we’re delivering mind-blowing coffee to your doorstep every two weeks. Finally, something warm and Swedish: the Cantwell Jacket by Fjällräven—plus we’re throwing in a gratis daypack. (Hey, it’ll get cold sometime.)
Things to do for January 19, 2012
Wolf Heads, Bacon Patties and Pie on a Stick
The weekend will Sundance like no one’s watching.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
