Perks is setting you up with an exclusive three-course feast for two at the Roof on Wilshire—against a cinematic view of the LA skyline. Plus you’re getting a snow-globe-sized wireless speaker for 30% off, and certifiably giftable gadgets and accessories from Alpha, where your $25 gets bumped to $50. Perks, people...
Things to do for December 13, 2012
A Weekend of Whiskey Punch, Grilled Cheese and Hats
The weekend is working with what it’s got.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
