Things to do for December 13, 2012

The Weekender

A Weekend of Whiskey Punch, Grilled Cheese and Hats

The weekend is working with what it’s got.

Thursday
12 Days of Punch at Seven Grand
GRAND CENTRAL

12 Days of Punch at Seven Grand

A partridge in a pear tree: seems like kind of a strange gift. You’d rather have some whiskey punch. Seven Grand is on the same page: 12 days of Christmas means 12 batches of brown-liquor punch—tonight’s tastes like pancakes and maple syrup. As all punch should.

Through Dec 24, Seven Grand, 515 W 7th St, Downtown, 213-614-0737

A Goorin Bros. Sample Sale
HATS ON

A Goorin Bros. Sample Sale

Some people just can’t pull off hats. Generally you don’t hang out with such people. Wander into a Downtown showroom this weekend and you’ll find a neck-up sample sale stocked with $20 Goorin Bros. fedoras. The kind that would make great gifts for the people you do hang out with.

Your New Grilled Cheese Savior
MELT WITH YOU

Your New Grilled Cheese Savior

When you want grilled cheese, you want it now. So order online, then show up at the Melt, which happens to have Michael Mina–approved cheese—and for you, no line. They’ll simply scan your code and give you your food. That’s it. Best thing to happen to sandwiches since the invention of... grilled cheese.

Now open, The Melt, 735 S Figueroa St, Downtown, 213-688-8509

Friday
Moonshine Cocktailing: Enabled
FULL MOONSHINE

Moonshine Cocktailing: Enabled

Some days you just need a quick bite and beer before your night gets under way. And other times, well, you need moonshine. Immediately. Alert: there’s a new Southern spot called Spoonful, with moonshine cocktails offered during their happy hour. And their second happy hour. And any other time they’re open. You’re covered.

Nightly, 5-6pm and 10pm-close, Spoonful, 3413 Cahuenga Blvd W, Studio City, 323-512-4800

Saturday
A Pop-Up You Need to Know
IT’S A FRONT

A Pop-Up You Need to Know

So there’s a storefront called... Storefront. You’d go for a couch and an old Best Western sign. And there’s this site called Bureau of Trade. Sells good clothes and bags and stuff. Together they’re doing a gift-y pop-up. Think Esquivel shoes and clothes made from recycled parachutes. Don’t pull the cord.
