This week, we’re hooking you up with eye-catching pop-art prints—including the opportunity to create your own Warhol. Plus, decadent chocolates from the finest chocolatiers in Paris and an extra $500 toward furniture from Jonathan Adler, Umbra and more at Apt2B—to stock your pad for spring.
Things to do for April 06, 2012
Bellinis, Five-Second Films and a New Pool Hall
The weekend delivers a surprisingly nuanced performance.
The Brickyard Pub Is Now Open
Next time you’re in the mood for some billiards and 75 beer options—and you’re in North Hollywood—we’re pretty sure you’re going to end up at the Brickyard Pub. The question, really, is when aren’t you in the mood for those things.
Your Opening Ceremony Loot: 70% Off
Now is the time to navigate the Opening Ceremony labyrinth. By the time you leave it, you may have picked up some Gitman Bros. button-downs and Rachel Comey boots at up to 70% off. The sale tags are sort of like bread crumbs.
Introducing the Venice Meet
This weekend you need some pastries, shoes, shaved ice, live music and maybe a T-shirt from a truck. You could either: A) spend the entire weekend in traffic as you make your rounds, or B) head to the Venice Meet, a new monthly outdoor market on Abbot Kinney. Tough call.
Bottomless Bellinis at Mr. C
Whether or not you celebrate Easter, you do celebrate bottomless brunch. Over at Mr. C on Sunday, they’ll have a spread of beef carpaccio, halibut and a pile of desserts waiting, along with all the Bellinis you can drink. And some beds, if you need one. Those are always there.
Finally, a Five-Second Film Festival
Citizen Kane is fine and all, but 119 minutes is a bit much—you’ve got things to do. Echo Park’s finest cavern of beer is screening a lineup of movies clocking in at five whopping seconds each, with a special cocktail made of coffee, stout and whiskey to wash them down. Don’t blink.
