Crashing weddings. With the right linen blazer, it’s almost too easy. So suit up with up to 30% off the rakish summer gear at Commonwealth Proper, or by getting $150 for $100 at Apolis. Final tip: show up on a Jetson, the Ferrari of electronic bikes. And watch out for Isla Fisher types.
Things to do for May 10, 2012
James Franco, Blowout Brunching and... Pants
Forget flowers, send the weekend.
Tonight, you could go to a bar and you could drink a drink. Or you could go to a crazy warehouse in Atwater, where you’ll stroll past six different sets to follow the performers of Crescent City: A Hyperopera, a touching story of tornadoes and voodoo. Also, there’s some electronica. Because why wouldn’t there be.
The Aetherstream Trailer Returns
This weather reminds you... You need some beach pants. And a light jacket. And some impossibly quick-drying swim trunks. If they’re from a trailer... so be it. The Aetherstream trailer is back in LA, restocked with that kind of high-tech summer stuff. Best thing to happen to trailers since parks.
Just an Epic Mother’s Day at Scarpetta
Mother’s Day is not the time for, like, a waffle and some OJ. Sunday at Scarpetta, you’ll be free to hit up a carving station, an omelet station, a whole-roasted-fish station, a dessert station... and they’ll keep the bottomless Bloodys or mimosas coming. You may even want to invite your mom.
The Infamous Bagatelle Brunch Is Here
Oceans of champagne, sparklers and maybe the occasional bite of french toast—over in NYC, the original Bagatelle party brunch got completely out of hand. Now it’s our city’s turn to give it a go. This one’s probably not for your mom. Though if it is, we’d like to meet your mom.
Franco Does Dean, Again
You’ve always liked Rebel Without a Cause. But maybe not as much as James Franco. He’s spearheading a new MOCA-sponsored exhibit called Rebel, with a bunch of artists throwing in videos, paintings and photography inspired by the movie. Even weird reenactments. Usually you just watch the movie.
