Things to do for May 04, 2012
Cinco de Mayo. The Derby. Tequila Ice Cream...
The weekend has a tequila julep recipe that will blow your mind.
Carne Asada and 70 Tequilas
Nothing against Cinco de Mayo, but there are 364 other days in the year when you might need some tequila near the beach. The Yxta crew’s new Santa Monica spot has 70 options to wash down your ceviche, carne asada and sweet shrimp enchiladas. You can still go on Cinco de Mayo.
Pints and Pints of Tequila Ice Cream
Your Cinco de Mayo thoughts: occasionally ice-cream-related (and who could blame you). Well, L.A. Creamery has unleashed a limited batch of Single Barrel Reposado Tequila Ice Cream upon our fair city—but they only made 30 pints, so you’ll need to consume them pretty quickly. Plus, they melt.
New Pants. We Repeat: New Pants.
Just in case you find yourself in Brentwood and realize you’re not exactly dressed for... Brentwood, a West Coast outpost of Scoop NYC has arrived with racks of Theory shirts, Billy Reid jackets and good chinos from Spurr. You gotta have chinos in Brentwood.
Whiskey, Jazz and the Derby
If you’re not getting to the actual Kentucky Derby this year, you’ll find all requisite whiskey flights, hats, jazz and juleps at the LAAC. Oh, and some screens to watch the race. Your ticket also gets you a gratis cocktail at the adjacent Seven Grand bash. Your kind of finish line.
Day-Drinking Outside Red O
Something kind of crazy is afoot at Red O. Something... in the daytime. Cinco de Mayo marks the first time they’ll open early for a “social hour” in the lounge and out on the patio—think tacos, taquitos and $8 margaritas in the sun. Should tide you over until dinner inside.
