Things to do for September 13, 2012
Your Weekend Needs More Tacos
Fade in: the weekend.
Ammo Comes to the Hammer
Here’s the thing about Hollywood lunch institutions: they’re so insistent about staying in Hollywood. Finally, Ammo has listened to your pleas, and now you can get your prosciutto sandwich and French lentil salad in the breezy courtyard of the Hammer Museum. Westwood needs lentils, too.
Your calendar is telling you summer’s over. The sun is telling you it’s not. Timing is good, then, for a Goorin Bros. sale—think three days of sun-shading fedoras for $20 in a Hollywood courtyard with live music and gratis drinks. Oh, and pocket squares. Because you never know.
Taco Night on a Beverly Hills Roof
Nothing against your average taco stand. But sometimes you require... some atmosphere. A rooftop. A zip code that makes you think about ’90s teen soaps. Atop the Peninsula, there’s a new taco-and-tequila thing happening—picture four short rib tacos and a Speckled Jalapeño Margarita. If you can picture such a thing.
80% Off at Mohawk General Store
Clear your calendar for Saturday. Mohawk is having a mother of an end-of-summer sale—think A.P.C. stuff at up to 80% off—for one day only. Two things: it’s cash only, and it’s next door in the basement of Blossom restaurant. And actually, you don’t have to clear your calendar. It won’t take all day.
A Sausage Pop-Up at a Wine Bar
Great little European wine bars—not usually where you go to channel an Oktoberfest vibe. But hey. You’re a pioneer. There’s a new pop-up at Mignon called Knackig, and it involves a sidewalk grill churning out brats, kielbasa and knockwurst. And... wine.
