Things to do for April 19, 2012
Fried Chicken, Brunching with Swans and a Beastie Boy
The weekend is mulling a run for mayor of Glendale.
When you think great artists, you think Renoir. Matisse. Mike D. That last guy has taken over the Geffen Contemporary to host 17 days of live music, video installations and an outdoor Kogi restaurant with a different surprise menu every day. Even Renoir never dreamed up Korean barbecue tacos.
The Kids in the Hall: Now Art
Your weekends lately have been shy on wine and Canadian sketch comedy. (Well, maybe not on wine.) Anyway, there’s a new group art show at Meltdown, where all the pieces were inspired by The Kids in the Hall. There’ll be wine at the opening. There’ll probably not be a Scott Thompson sighting.
Waffles and Bloodys in Bel-Air
You don’t need much for a successful brunch—just carrots, vodka and swans. Related: Wolfgang Puck has launched an extravagant three-course brunch at Hotel Bel-Air. Your options include Bloody Marys (made with carrot juice) and macadamia nut waffles with bananas Foster ice cream. Please do not feed the swans.
Fried Chicken by the Bucket
There’s a new Sunday supper kicking off this weekend at Lexington Social House, and there are two reasons why you’ll care. One, they’ve got Jared Simons (Violet, Bardot) in the kitchen these days. Two, he’ll be offering giant buckets of fried chicken. You knew you liked that guy.
Drinking Wine with Holyfield
If it’s been a while since you tossed one back with Evander Holyfield, swing by the boxing benefit Tuesday at the Paley Center—he’ll be there schmoozing, as will Laila Ali and a lot of Olympic hopefuls. Warm up with a quick bout of shadow wine-drinking.
