Only on Perks: a dinner date at Gordon Ramsay’s Fat Cow (cocktails included), followed by VIP tickets to Skyfall at the Grove—for 80 bucks. You’re also entitled to 25% off white truffles fit for the world’s best restaurants and bottles of classic cocktails made from rare booze. Might go well together...
Things to do for November 15, 2012
Evander Holyfield, PBR Micheladas and Port-Dipped Steaks
Another 48 weekends.
A Levi’s Vintage Sample Sale
No, you can’t give everyone on your holiday list an autographed headshot again this year. But, good news, Levi’s is having a seasonal sale downtown this weekend. And you can get everyone on your list denim. No rule against that.
Meet the New Caulfield’s
Here’s what happens when a Le Cirque expat (Stephen Kalt) takes over that restaurant at the Thompson hotel: you get all-new menus, all-new marble communal tables, a whiskey cocktail with kiwi shrub and one magnificent lobster club sandwich. Love what you’ve done with the place, Stephen.
A Grill from Walt Disney’s Niece
So, you know that cryogenically frozen guy who invented Mickey Mouse... well, after two years’ worth of renovations, his niece is finally opening her Getty Center–side bar and grill. Frankly, it’s pretty damn handsome in there. White tablecloths. Port-dipped steaks. It’s the kind of restaurant Friday nights were created for.
USC vs. UCLA vs. a Ghost Chili Dog
You’re watching the game Saturday. Of course you are. But until now, you probably didn’t realize you were watching it at Diablo Taco. Yup, they’ll have the big tilt on TV. And on the specials menu: a bacon/onion/bison/jalapeño/ghost chili aioli Kobe dog. For $9, pair that with a PBR michelada. And napkins.
Buying Evander Holyfield’s Stuff
Five-time heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield is putting some of his personal possessions up on the auction block. We know what you’re thinking... no, the bitten-off ear isn’t for sale. But the boxing gloves he wore during that fight are. As are his ’84 Olympic bronze and ’62 cherry red Corvette. Great stocking stuffer.
