Yours for 40 bucks: two VIP tickets to an outdoor screening of The Bourne Identity at the Grove—replete with Umami burgers and unlimited beer/wine. Also, for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley. Finally, here’s a secret grill... disguised as a potted plant. Bourne would approve...
Things to do for August 16, 2012
Burgers, Pants and a Sleepover at a Cemetery
Forget it, Jake. It’s the weekend.
Beer and Pants at Standard Goods
There’s a magazine party at Standard Goods on Friday. The mag’s called They, if you want to know. It’s artsy. Anyway, heads up: the party involves gratis beer and coincides with the shop’s summer sale, so half off pants and curios. In case you showed up to the party sans pants or curios.
You, in a Sleeping Bag, in a Cemetery
You’ve done some weird stuff at the Hollywood Forever cemetery—picnic and a movie is technically sort of weird—but you’ve probably never packed a sleeping bag. They’re hosting an all-nighter Saturday, with three movies, a photo booth, DJ Peanut Butter Wolf and gratis Intelligentsia coffee till dawn. Basically the best sleepover ever.
Sunday Supper at Mercato di Vetro
Sunday evening. Time to wind things down. Maybe just a quick bite of salumi and buffalo mozzarella first. Turns out that’s just the first spread of a three-course Sunday feast at Mercato di Vetro’s new Sunday supper—and house bottles of red are 20 bucks. You can slow it down Monday.
Burgers You Didn’t See Coming
Haven already makes its own beer. But starting Monday, they’re stepping up their burger game. See, the back area shall be known as Burger Haven, and the menu’s got a half-dozen burgers like the McCormick Alley, topped with bacon-stout jam, or the Shake and Bake, which is chicken. Hey, that’s cheating.
