This week, we’re getting you 50% off a private villa at the Parker Palm Springs. (Your $200 bar tab: on us.) We’re also bringing you $80 worth of credit for spending $40 on Uber’s private chauffeuring, and fish and chips with loads of British beer at Bar Marmont on Mondays.
Things to do for May 24, 2012
Endless Tacos, Reservoir Dogs and New Brunch
Utah, get the weekend three.
Pig’s Ears in a Downtown Farmhouse
Sometimes you think you could give up the city for life on a farm. All you’d need is a little two-story place full of smoked octopus, crispy pig’s ears and pastoral views of... telecom buildings. Actually, you should probably just go here—a rustic new restaurant on Grand.
A Drink-Along Tarantino Double Feature
Friday night is a really big night: some friends are catching What to Expect When You’re Expecting. While you’re catching a cocktail-friendly Reservoir Dogs/Natural Born Killers double feature. Your first drink is included in the ticket price, and the cash bar stays open during showtime. Shots every time somebody swears...
Brick Comes to Brentwood
If you see a large man looking out of place in Brentwood—his bicep roughly the size of your head—he’s not lost. He’s going to the sleek new outpost of Brick Sport Performance to run a crazy boot-camp-style circuit class. Follow him, then pay him to yell at you.
Fig & Olive’s Brunch Trifecta
Time for a new holiday-weekend tradition—like the three-course brunch that just launched at Fig & Olive. Think gazpacho, poached eggs and biscotti, and an included first cocktail. Which means next weekend might be time to launch a non-holiday-weekend tradition.
Endless Tacos from an Indoor Truck
The time: 1:30am. The scene: You just saw LP and/or Tony Bennett rock the Sayers Club. So, naturally, you’ll be needing a whole lot of tacos from a food truck parked inside a restaurant around the corner—and Tuesdays at Calle, all tacos are now 99 cents. Guess they don’t need gas money.
